WinPatrol Dutch and Portuguese

Nederlands flag     Portugal flag

I know I must be doing something right when the folks who use my software want to give something back besides just $24.95 for the PLUS version.

While on vacation I was pleasantly surprised with two new localization files for WinPatrol users in Portugal and the Netherlands.  I’ve made the creation of language packs as easy as I could and it has really paid off. All our language packs have been done by volunteers eager to show their support.

If you’d like a version of WinPatrol in your native language see what’s available on our free download page. So far we have Italian, German, French, Español, Russian, Norwegian, Greek, Portuguese(Brazilian), Polish and now Portuguese and Dutch.  Thanks to Rui Costa and Gideon van Melle.

If you’re able to translate technical terms into a language you don’t see, you can help too. Instructions for creating a WinPatrol language file is available at  You could even create WinPatrol Klingon or Sindarin if you’d like.

What can I say? WinPatrol is such a great piece of software that it deserves to be translated to as many languages as possible! :)

Keep up the good work Bill!
