Source code for CamStudio 1.25 Internationalized / Japanese Version (VC++ 6/NET)

contributed by Iwasaki Teruyuki

vscap125-1.zip (615 KB)

The source code for the internationalized version contains changes to the original sources with many of the hard-coded message strings being taken out and put into a string table. The original text in message boxes are replaced with LoadString(nID) or Format(nID) of string resources. This greatly eases the localization of the resources and facilitates translation into other languages.

We will like to express our sincere gratitude to Iwasaki Teruyuki who, not only only provide the translation into Japanese but also generously allowing his code to be shared.

Open Source Advantages

The advantages of Open Source has been advocated widely in many literatures. Having the code makes it easy to resolve many problems, like you do not have to depend on only one vendor to fix problems of the software. You can also enhance the software yourself if you think the features are not exactly what you need.

In general, the advantages of the software as a result of its openness is that it becomes more stable, adaptable, better in quality, more frequently innovated, secure and free !
