Translation Mechanism of Application Strings

In the localized version of your USoft application, files that are called "UMG files" are used to display the application strings of the local language. A UMG file is a kind of mapping file used by USoft Developer to find out the local string which corresponds to the English string in the CON and ESI files.

The process to display the text in the local language is as follows: USoft Developer reads the CON, and ESI flat files. When it finds an application string, it looks up the UMG file for the corresponding local application string. If a corresponding string is found, it is displayed on the screen. If it is not found, the original English application string is displayed.
