also - Version string bug is already solved. I edited header of the .nsi file
(line 7) and filled up the version and all is now already OK.

Then I tested some modifications of language files and .nsi file (I wont to
achieve the full localization of installer), but my effort was totally
unsucessfull. In my opinion we really need someone, who know NSIS or scripting
in NSIS much more better.

The Michi´s idea with plugin files for various languages likes me, but in my
opinion it is needed to make some modifications in .nsi file too, when we will
to use this new idea. BTW: Compiler-guys from the development team could us not
to help?

Best regards,
