Translating the AutomaticUpdater control

The AutomaticUpdater control allows for easy translation of the strings from English to whichever language you're targeting.

Simply use the Translation property of the AutomaticUpdater instance and set the strings to your target language. You must set the traslation values in the contructor of your application.

C# example

public Form1()
{
    InitializeComponent();

    //TODO: Use your translation
    autoUpdate.Translation.CheckForUpdatesMenu = "&Check for updates";
    autoUpdate.Translation.DownloadUpdateMenu = "&Download and Update now";
    // etc...
    // see the other translation properties below for the full list

    // Now you can use the AutomaticUpdater methods.
}

VB.NET example

Public Sub New()
    InitializeComponent()

    ' TODO: Use your translation
    autoUpdate.Translation.CheckForUpdatesMenu = "&Check for updates"
    autoUpdate.Translation.DownloadUpdateMenu = "&Download and Update now"
    ' etc...
    ' see the other translation properties below for the full list

    ' Now you can use the AutomaticUpdater methods.
End Sub

Listed below are the string properties and default English values inside the Translation property.
