Neo / Ipsum Worldwide

After I released Neo / Ipsum I started to get feedback, and as I said before it has mostly been good. One thing I heard was rather puzzling though. In the German version of PowerPoint my Add-In was not displaying, it would show up if the user switched to English but not in German. After consulting with some people I found the fix in some of the installer files and got confirmation that it works.

I have a few lessons from this. If it is released on the internet it is released world wide so better test for that. Your product is never truly done (more on that latter). And having people in different parts of the world to test for you is invaluable.

What’s next for Neo / Ipsum? A few people have asked me to make localized versions of Neo / Ipsum various languages, but as I am only fluent in English I nave no idea how I would do that, however I have gotten a few offers of help along those lines so that might be in the works. Right now I am looking into making a version of Neo / Ipsum for Word, and I have already found some big differences in how it will need to be done.

I will update about what I am doing as I figure it out.
