“The return of the .stp language converter”

Hello everyone,

I assume you have all heared about the
"Fantastic 40" - 40 Application Templates for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, released by Microsoft.
The good news is these are really beautiful templates that provide both good ideas and initial starting point for implementing and deploying WSS sites for various business needs.
The bad news is that these templates were published only in 10 “chosen“ languages (in addition to English): French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, Hebrew, Chinese simplified and Chinese traditional.
To be more accurate, not all the 40 templates were released in these 10 languages, but only part of them (the Core templates).

Well, about a year ago I have published a tip:
Changing the language of a site template (.stp) file that describes how to translate a site template file (.stp) to a desired language, along with a freeware utility.
So, finally I can happily inform that the new version of the .stp language converter utility is ready for MOSS 2007/WSS 3.0.

Download the new freeware version from:


new post will come soon!!!
