Localized FeedDemon 4.0

If you upgraded to the new FeedDemon 4.0 and English isn't your primary language, then you'll be pleased to hear that Chinese, Czech, French, German, Italian, Russian, Slovak and Ukrainian language files are now freely available.

The simplest way to switch to a different language is to select Tools > Options > Language > Download Additional Languages from within FeedDemon 4.0, which takes you this page:

From there you can select the language file you wish to use, and FeedDemon will take care of downloading and installing it.

PS: These language files were created by customers who simply wanted FeedDemon to be available in their native language.  It's a tedious process creating these translations, so we owe a big "thank you" to those who spent their time working on them.

  1. It’s good. Another good feature in FD – translate of the post. But it works for english language only ))
    It would be good to have option to translate to main language, not only to english :)

  2. @docker: Translation should automatically be into your language, as defined by the language you’ve selected in Google Reader’s settings. But you can override this by adding the country code to the registry.
    Simply create a string value named “GRLanguageCode” under the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Bradbury\FeedDemon\1.0\GReader and assign it your country code. If you’re not sure of your country code, check this list:

  3. Nick, thank you for this tip. It is working after regedit :)
    Simple changing of language in options, nor changing language in Google Reader does nothing. I think FD checks this one time when first sync with google, and after that there is no way to change it without regedit.
    I think you have to implement this right in program, when changing locale, or something elsewhere ))

  4. I’m trying out Firefox 4 Beta on a Vista-loaded laptop. There’s a repeating bug with the FF4 and FeedDemon favicons switching and vanishing when they’re minimized to the taskbar. Just a head’s up if you haven’t seen it yourself.
