Benefits of INTL for VFP 3
INTL minimizes the maintenance headaches that always come with multilingual and multi-version software projects. Programs using INTL remain the developer⬢s language, and bears little trace that automated processes seamlessly handle the multilingual interface.
Run-time localization -- The INTL Toolkit can create applications where interface strings are substituted at run-time. In this configuration, you have one .EXE suitable for the world.
INTL documentation includes an extensive state-of-the-art survey of FoxPro⬢s international features, and a survey of direct and indirect international and cultural issues. Complete annotated documentation for GENMENUX is included in the Toolkit.
INTL changes the way you think about your software and your market. All to the better: a significant technical barrier to trade⬝language⬝vanishes.
INTL snaps-in very quickly. If tomorrow you need to present a credible demonstration of multilingual capability, for example, you could do it easily.
Retrofitting INTL into an existing application is easy! Your potential multilingual application is probably a successful pre-existing single-language application. Minimal re-engineering is required to use INTL, with no re-engineering expected if you use power tools and your code isn⬢t overly interface dependent.
