Default Updated English [UK] LangPack (including SWS)

The original English [UK] Language Pack is now a little outdated so I've just uploaded this to the stash at:

https://stash.reaper.fm/36166/FULL_uk.ReaperLangPack

This one also includes translations of the current SWS extension.

Details:

Translations from English [US] to English [UK]:

behavior -> behaviour
buss -> bus (this was only required in the SWS options)
center -> centre
color -> colour
measure -> bar

Also (for grammar):
Show maximum rows even when tracks would fit in less rows -> Show maximum rows even when tracks would fit in fewer rows

(Unfortunately, it seems the grid settings "Measure" option cannot yet be changed with the LangPack, so it remains there regardless of this LangPack selection.)

Note that words ending in -ize (Quantize, Humanize, Normalize, etc.) have deliberately NOT been altered to end in -ise. This is because the -ise endings for these words in British English are merely optional (and not compulsory) - and I prefer the -ize endings.

I hope at least someone other than me finds it useful

**UPDATE** 2019-04-30

I've now added a second, alternative uk LangPack (because some people prefer to see words ending in "-ise" rather than "-ize").

You can download it from here:

https://stash.reaper.fm/36227/FULLa_uk.ReaperLangPack

This pack includes all the changes in my uk-ized pack but with the following additional changes (essentially all relevant words ending in -ize, -izing and -ization -> -ise, -ising and -isation):

Analyze ->Analyse
Analyzing -> Analysing
Authorize -> Authorise
Capitalize -> Capitalise
Captializing -> Capitalising
Categorize -> Categorise
Chordize -> Chordise
Colorization -> Colourisation
Customize -> Customise
Denormalization -> Denormalisation
Denormalize -> Denormalise
Humanization -> Humanisation
Humanize -> Humanise
Initialize -> Initialise
Initializing -> Initialising
Markers recognize this keys -> Markers recognise these keys (incl. this -> these for grammar)
Normalization -> Normalisation
Normalize -> Normalise
Normalized -> Normalised
Normalizing -> Normalizing
Optimize -> Optimise
Organize -> Organise
Personalized -> Personalised
Quantization -> Quantisation
Quantize -> Quantise
Randomization -> Randomisation
Randomize -> Randomise
Recognize -> Recognise
Sychronization -> Synchronisation
Synchronize -> Synchronise
Synchronizing -> Synchronising
Synthesizer -> Synthesiser
Un-normalize -> Un-normalise
Uninitialize -> Uninitialise
Unquantize -> Unquantise
Utilization -> Utilisation
Visualize -> Visualise

Thank you,
and Prince Charles would agree with you on the '-ize' thing.

Well, good for him! Somehow I doubt he uses REAPER though

Pleased to see this - shame the original isn`t called American instead of English.
How would I go about actually using this language pack, btw?
Never even looked at that side of reaper before, because I thought I would always be stuck with the American version.

Just open REAPER, then drag and drop the language file anywhere in REAPER's main window. You should then see a dialog box which tells you the new language will be applied when you restart REAPER.

If you want to check which language you're currently using, you'll find it listed in Preferences under the "General" tab, and you can switch between any installed language packs there at any time.

"Less" as a substitute for "fewer" isn't US usage. It's just wrong.

That's why I put "for grammar" in brackets. It's obviously a correction and not a US to UK translation but the only way I could make that correction was via a LangPack, and it seemed a good opportunity to do so.

You're most welcome, ivansc!

**UPDATE** 2019-04-25

I just noticed that a couple of references to "measures" slipped through in the original version - these have now all been corrected to read "bars". I've updated the file in the stash. If you downloaded the file before I posted this message then please download again for the latest version.

**UPDATE** a bit later on 2019-04-25

Where used as a noun, "License" now reads "Licence". Where used as a verb it remains as "License" (as in, "Licensed for...").

Again, if you downloaded the file before I posted this message then please download again for the latest version.

Also, if you notice anything I may have missed, do let me know.

There's no need to update the link - I've replaced the earlier files, so the link in the first post will automatically initiate a download of the latest version (I have already double-checked it at this end).

Well done!

I am not by nature a uber-partisan Englishman, regarding myself as a European / Brit but still old habits die hard.
My pet peeve is the number of words that get mis-spelt with a ZED instead of an ESS.

Ah right, I didn't know how that sort of thing worked, thought the link might lead to some sort of inbetween thing....I get it now, thanks.

Ahem!
The English spoken in the UK IS the proper english.
You dont even need to open a history book to know that, Curtis.

Mind you, as with other countries the UK does have a huge variety of regional accents and dialects, but the current spelling and usage of english words stems from the UK version - the original.

I don't understand the point of your post - if you're happy with Reaper's default language (American English) then just don't install this language pack.

By the way, since you're advising people to use "proper" English, it may have been wise to set a good example: The first part of your sentence contains the word "waste" as an adjective but omits a required noun; i.e. "a waste" - of what? Since you precede the word "waste" with the article "a", it cannot itself be considered to be a noun in this context. Also, you make two distinct statements so, even if we ignore the missing noun error, it would have been better to use a full stop after "waste" and start a new sentence with a capital letter on the word, "Just".

I'm not really even THAT partisan on the issue of American and British English myself. I can happily tolerate American English spelling but, given the choice, I would just rather see British English on a day-to-day basis in Reaper.

In fact, right now I'm trying to learn Polish which is much more difficult, I can tell y'all! I should probably install the Polish LangPack, but sadly that would considerably slow down my daily workflow!

FWIW I have recently started deliberately spelling every word I can that has a Z in USA English with an S & am planning on expanding that further.... Driving Chrome`s auto spell checker nuts.

So now we have energise - just a thought... the real plum would be to start reversing it.

PatroniZe....

ivanc - you don't need to bother with that - I noted your earlier comment and have already made a modified langpack with all the appropriate changes from -ize to -ise especially for you! Will upload it very soon (probably later this evening).

You're welcome! I've now added the uk-ised version and updated the first post in this thread with a link to the new version.

Unfortunately I wouldn't know - though I think either Oliver Postgate or Johnny Morris would probably be my first choices as narrators!

You're very welcome, although I should say that it is, of course, thanks also to Justin for making REAPER so customizable (or, perhaps, customisable)
