Skinning Tutorial

[ Back to Shareaza Skinning ]


The <strings> element can be used to translate text-strings to another language, or to perform other editing operations on them.

Here is an example from MyStringSkin.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<skin xmlns="" version="1.0">
  <manifest name="My String Skin" author="Me" type="Language" language="en"/>

      <string id="WINDOW_NEIGHBOURS" value="Neighbours"/>
      <string id="16064" value="Starting Gnutella network core..."/>

To create a translation skin, copy the existing string database from default-en.xml in your skins folder and start translating each entry.
