Birthday Reminder



Birthday Reminder

Birthday Reminder will alert you to birthdays you need to remember, in advance of those dates. The reminder box looks like this:

Clicking the Options button allows you to manage the birthdays, choose how far in advance you want to be reminded for each, which icon you'd like to use for that person, and set other options. You can sort the data by each of the columns below.



The following languages are available:

To start using the translation, download the file above, unzip it, and put the strings.ini in the Birthday Reminder data directory - to find this click Start and then type %appdata%, click OK, and then double-click on the Zhorn Birthday Reminder directory. The next time you run the app, it will use the translation.

Interested in creating a new translation? Download the English version of the file, and edit it in Notepad. When you're finished, please send me the file so that I can share it with others!
