Russian Homestyler ready for testing

Russian HomestylerI mentioned some time ago that our Localization Services (LS) team was embarking on a community-based translation of Homestyler into Russian.

The fruits of this labour are now ready for testing: the various translation projects, for the application, for its content and for supporting web-pages are now 100% complete. But that’s not to say things haven’t been missed or mis-translated, so we would love to get feedback from Russian speakers on the quality of the work performed.

The below information has been provided by our LS team for people who are interested in taking Russian Homestyler for a spin (and ideally providing feedback, of course).

Be warned that these steps involve editing a core system file, and so clearly require a certain level of comfort with making such changes as well as appropriate permissions on your testing machine.
