    Default App request for the language switch in the iphone.~

    i installed the chinese language in the iphone ,
    can anyone make a application that can run in iphone to switch the

    .GlobalPreferences.plist
    <key>AppleLocale</key>
    <string>en</string>

    to

    .GlobalPreferences.plist
    <key>AppleLocale</key>
    <string>zh_TW</string>

    at anytime.?

    so that i can change the iphone menu language anytime?
    or just make different .GlobalPreferences.plist store in the iphone(depends on language) and use app to switch(or overwite) the orignal one then restart the spingborad?
    i think that could be easy , i had some of the c++ basic skill..but i just feel sad about i don't have mac to make a app....

    tys ~!

    Hi, can you explain how do you install the chinese language ? and what effect it has ? (changing the menu or setting, screenshot will be nice).

    I am in the process of building the toolchain and trying to write some apps. Maybe I can do this as my first app.

    i use the language pack in this forum, and it does change all the menu and setting to chinese language, and the .GlobalPreferences.plist <key>AppleLocale</key>
    <string>*****</string> ,***** means the language of the phone. if u change that to <string>zh_TW</string> and restart the springboard, that will use the language pack folder zh_TW,(the original one is <string>en</string>)
    all i need to is a app that run in iphone and let u chose the language then restart the springboard.
    ps: this is the page for the language pack

    Very easy....

    Make a file in some directory to just copy a standard plist?

    like:

    EnglishEnabled.plist
    ChineseEnabled.plist

    and then have your script copy EnglishEnabled.plist onto whatever the name of the locale.plsit is, and copy the other one on another script...

    there is a little bit of a risk that you could screw things up if the copy fails and cripples the file....

    you could call these from within Tapp iirc, but I've never used it myself...

    I finally finished my first iPhone application. Here you go.

    from googlecode

    Just unzip and copy to /Applications. The current language is not working yet. And the list of selection is come from the preferences folder. You can remove the one you don need.

    Let me know how it works for you. Thanks.

    NS~!
    I just installed it in my phone.
    but 1 thing that need to fix is after the
    <key>AppleLocale</key>
    <string>en_US</string> <-- the en_Us should be change also depends on language. That effect the date format in the iphone.
    If i change that to zh_TW , then the day(like.. Monday,Tuesday..etc) will show up in chinese format and the Current select in ur app will show as zn_TW too(now just keep show up as en). Also, can u change the Selection list to normal region name? like... English, Chinese, Japanes....Something like that...that could be perfect~ tys~!

    Great app...
    once you installed all .lproj files it works great .. (with the installed languages ..!)

    although it doesnt show what language you have choosen ..
    also .. one idea i'd like to see is to gray-out the languages NOT installed...
    i.e. for example if german language isnt installed .. you shouldnt be able to choose it.. (checking for de.lproj in springboard could be one way...)

    im gonna put this app on my swedish guide page .. when the small quirks been sorted
