Edition:The Premier edition of InstallShield includes support for creating multilingual installations.
InstallShield supports many features that enable you to customize your installation for global distribution. Using these features, you can create a single installation project that displays end-user text in multiple languages and can handle conditional installation of language-specific files.
Creating a multilingual installation primarily involves separating code from language-specific resources and files. You may also need to distribute separate files for your installation, such as graphics, license files, or custom actions, depending on the language in which the installation is running. Another consideration is whether you need to install different application files depending on the target system’s locale.
InstallShield enables the creation of multilingual installations by dividing installation authoring into the following distinct tasks:
|•||that your installation will include.|
|•||for each supported language.|
|•||as necessary for each language.|
|•||to include in the release.|
