Status of Internationalization of Hook and of Its Compatibility with Apps That Are Not Displayed in English
Hook’s current limitation to English means the following:
- Hook’s display is currently presented in English regardless of the macOS display language setting. By “display” we mean the “user interface” (“UI”): labels, command names, etc.
- User documentation is currently available only in English.
Some apps are supported in other languages
We have added support for Hook to control several UI-scripted apps in German. Some apps also can be controlled in Italian. See the Linkable apps page. Or try Hook out yourself: there’s a free 30-day trial, which becomes a Lite version.
We intend to support other languages.
Please feel free to contact us to request support in other languages..
We appreciate the patience of non-English users who are waiting for the internationalization of Hook.
How users can overcome these limitations
Users who are proficient in AppleScript can overcome these limitations for their favorite apps by changing the names of the commands presented in Hook’s Scripts preferences tab.
