MPR2M7P

A tool for converting MPR files to M7P files.

The following project-specific information is converted for strings (native texts and translations):

Currently the application is able to migrate these features from a Multilizer 6 project:

  • Row statuses
  • Read-only (AKA "Do not translate") state of row
  • Translation statuses
  • Row and translation comments
  • Max Characters value
  • Excludes by native
  • Excludes by context

As the options for configuring a target differs a lot between Multilizer 6 and latest Multilizer, the options are converted only to a certain extent. Therefore you should review the options after conversion and re-scan the project.

The tool is designed for converting Multilizer 6 projects. It can also be used for importing some Multilizer 5 projects.

A word about contexts

The utility uses "context translation rules". There are either target-specific rules or fallback rules.

Target specific context translation rules are available for the following target types:

  • VCL (Delphi and C++Builder binary)
  • PE (Windows Binary)
  • INI
  • KEY


Background

Multilizer 6 uses MPR file format for storing the localization project information. This project format was change to m7p. As MPR differs a lot from newer formats a tool is needed to upgrade the project format.

The tool can be used for the following purposes:

  1. Simplify the migration from Multilizer 6 to latest Multilizer
  2. Convert MPR to M7P, in order to do context-specific import of translations to your existing Multilizer projects.

Usage

Using MPR2M7P

It's very easy to convert an existing MPR file to M7P. Simply click Convert... button and specify the location of an existing MPR file. The tool outputs a M7P file with the same filename and .m7p file extension.

The converted project can be opened as such in Multilizer. Once open in Multilizer do the following steps:

  • Review the target options
  • Scan the project

Log
