yes it is! they has a component where you just put one in ir mail application and then you have to say how the words must be changed.
I've found the name of the component it calls "TwwIntl". look what the help say.

Unit

wwIntl

Description

The TwwIntl component is a non-visual component that provides you with a centralized way of changing the attributes of InfoPower’s end-user dialog boxes.  You can control the captions, hints, and even the style of buttons to use.  This component will greatly assist those internationalizing their application into other languages.

you must rebuild and compile the packages or units of infopower, not the ones from your app.

I think there are two ways.

1.  Fisrt Uninstall your InfoPower2000,then Install the Package again. and Rebuild your app also.

2.  Your can copy your modified InfoPower200's Units into you app directory. and Use Delphi IDE Project|Add to project....  to add the modified units into your app project. and then re-build you project.

That's all.Good Luck.

Mr. Shenqw,

I want to modify the Wwfltdlg in InfoPower2000.

I DO have replaced the original DCU file(Wwfltdlg.dcu) in InfoPower2000\lib where is the place Delphi use to link my app I think, but my app still shows the original dialog(Wwfltdlg) , not the modified dialog(I only changed a caption of a label). I wonder if the DCU file contain the dialog resource?

I also tried to copy these three files : Wwfltdlg.dfm,Wwfltdlg.pas,wwifdef.pas into my app dir, and Use Delphi IDE Project|Add to project....,  and modified the Wwfltdlg.dfm file(a caption of a label), and then re-build you project. But STILL nothing changed! While on delphi's IDE,Wwfltdlg.dfm show what I want it to show.  


Help me pease.
