Three simple steps to localize
Third party components are sometimes very hard to localize. Some third party controls hide text strings in proprietary binary data and undocumented structures. In this case we need some information from the third party tool vendors about the format of this data.
Below you find information about the status of the three levels of third party components support. If you are in the decision phase of buying third party controls for your application you should not forget to test if they are fully localizable with a software localization tool.
Please be aware, that this is not a technical problem of Sisulizer. If the component developers decide to use hard coded strings or hide the strings which need to be localized in proprietary data no software localization tool will be able to read. We at Sisulizer care for this problem some other localization tool vendors simply ignore.
These components have been fully tested with Sisulizer and Sisulizer can give the best localization experience technically possible. We can even give localization related support for users using these components.
These component vendors have already joined our third party program. These tool vendors care software localization and we recommend their use in to be localized software.

Attention: Even if they are fully supported some components may have a few hard coded strings that can not be localized by any localization tool. This is not a limitation of Sisulizer!
These components have been tested with Sisulizer but because the vendor has not joined our third party program we can not guarantee their localization. We can not give support to users using these components.
If you use these components below please contact the component vendor and ask them to join our program. We already contacted most of them but it seems they do not see the advantage be fully supported by a software localization tool like Sisulizer. Perhaps they change their mind if their customers ask for localization support.

Of course all other components can also be localized if they are coded properly. You have to manually map the components in Sisulizer. This takes only a few mouse clicks. If the control does not hide the data to be localized then this is all. Sisulizer recognized your mappings. You only have to do them once.
If you successfully use them please send the map file to us plus some information about the components and the vendor. We will add the mapping to the next Sisulizer build and other users can profit from it. Please also contact the component vendor and ask them to join our program. As long as we have not the needed information from the vendors we are not able to support our customers.
If you want your control to be in our list of supported tools please contact us. Supporting us will neither cost you much time nor any money.
