WaterMeterBill8‎ > ‎


This is the skeleton layout for the free app headings
The Android OS is clever in that it will allow simple language changes for an app, via this skeleton.
Look at the highlighted items on the screen on the right. These are the headings for the en (English) version.

So if anyone wishes to supply translations of these items [to their own language], please do so.
I will quickly implement them and credit you as the supplier on the Info screen (see YOUR NAME below).

Example (Only translate the last section):-
 <string name="tusage"> = $</string>    (USA version)
 <string name="tusage"> = </string>     (European default)
 <string name="tusage"> = £</string>    (English version)

 <string name="days">days</string>    (English version)
 <string name="days">jours</string>    (French version)
 <string name="days">tage</string>    (German version)

    <string-array name="infotopics">
        <item>Getting Started</item>
        <item>Web help</item>
    <string-array name="infochild0">
        <item>The process starts with your bill(s) in front of you</item>
        <item>You may also need to have other bits of billing information to hand, or on the web</item>
