The Qt framework offers a quite nice and convenient way to localize your application.
Not only how to mark inside the code translateable strings (tr(..)), but also that the translation-mappings are human-readable xml-format files (*.ts), but also their own tool to do the translation (Linguist). Linguist is quite helpful for translator who sometimes also have to have a look at the “what would you get with that translation of different size inside the widget”-result (more or less: WYSIWYG).

Noticed today some flaws in the localisation of MTuner (nice memory profiler) and offered some help.
This is what I love about OSS: you don’t just take, but can also lend a helping hand and improve the quality 🙂

QtCreator: add online-help if the SDK is not coming from an official package

Written by  on January 1, 2020


having some Qt-SDK without help files. Using help inside a browser is possible, but cumbersome. and local help would be nice for quick parameter-checks.

solution (edited):

Found also the official docu at: http://download.qt-project.org/online/qtsdkrepository/windows_x86/desktop/qt5_5121_src_doc_examples/qt.qt5.5121.doc/ as 7z-archive.

Then add it via QtCreator > Tools > Options > Help > Documentation > “add the QCH files”.
