Multiple Language Support
VTube-STEP supports multiple languages - even East Asian. You can even translate the user interface to your own language.
Sample Screen Shots
This tutorial tube shape was designed in Alibre.
Multiple languages are supported through text files called VTL files. VTube Language files each contain one language. The name of the VTL file is named according to the language. For example, Chinese is given the name "chinese.vtl".
VTL files are text files that can be adjusted in a Unicode-supporting editor. They are stored in the c:\program files\VTube-STEP\config\language folder.
We use and recommend Notepad++ editor to edit your VTube-STEP language files. It is available for download from the net by searching for the name.
When VTube closes, it automatically generates a file called "current_language_setup.vtl" that is built from the latest user-interface elements. We've included this file so that you can easily find what user interface elements have been added between VTube-STEP versions. So when upgrading VTube-STEP, you will often find new additions in this file if they were added since the last version. If you are using a non-English VTL file, then any English labels in the generated file will indicate new words added since the last version.
