Hi! Can I have LB 5 in English, please? As long as there is no german help, a german localization makes no sense.

While I would argue with that, here's what you can do:
  • EDIT: See norbert's post below, his solution is much simpler!
  • Set Mac OS X's default language to English: System Preferences > International > Language
  • Remove the German localization: Find LaunchBar.app in Finder, control-click it and choose "Show package contents" / "Paketinhalt zeigen". Navigate to Contents > Resources and delete the folder German.lproj. Mac OS X will now usually default to English.
This is a generic way to remove unwanted localizations, which means it should work for any Mac OS X application.

regards,
Ludwig

The easiest way to disable a particular localization for a particular application is to select that application in Finder, open the Get Info window (Command-I), open the Languages pane, and uncheck the language in question.

norbert, that's a really handy feature I didn't know about.

I was wondering if there will be more localization for LB 5 ?
Can someone translate the English package and send it to you for the RC ?
