Abstract

See full text

Apparatus is provided for forming a foreign language file from a native language file so that the display for a given equipment can be rendered in the foreign language rather than the native language. The apparatus is comprised of a native language file containing instructions for the format of the display, words to be translated, and contextual information related to the latter words, a translation tool for reading the native language file and forming an image of the native words to be translated, the size and shape of the space allotted to them and a blank space into which equivalent foreign words can be inserted, means for inserting the foreign words, and means for storing in a file the foreign words and the instructions for the format to be used.
