No-one is questioning whether it works.

Ah, you have that program which shrinks any file down to one byte ... ;-)

It has the advantage of any scripted language - just change with a text
editor and run. If you just want to translate the messages from english
to german, the only expertise you need is reading english and writing
german.

I don't have VS.net either. I have VC++, but not the IDE, so I would
have to mess about with makefiles, find the missing libraries and all
that junk.
