Why is my Cinema4D Zoom plugin showing up in a language different from English? 

Due to changes in the R20 API, the naming format of language folders for the C4D plugin has changed. Till R19, the language folders naming convention was like this – strings_es, strings_fr, strings_us etc. But R20 language folders follow the convention language code followed by region ID e.g strings_en-US, strings_es-ES, etc.

Steps to fix this for R20:

  • Look for the locale folders of Zoom plugin. By default locale folders are in:
    • For Windows: C:\Program Files\MAXON\Cinema 4D R20\plugins\ZmCinema4DPlugin\res
    • For Mac: /Applications/MAXON/Cinema 4D R20/plugins/ZmCinema4DPlugin\res
  • Rename the locale folders as follows:
    • strings_es -> strings_es-ES
    • strings_fr -> strings_fr-FR
    • strings_us -> strings_en-US
  • Click on Plugins -> Reload Python Plugins in Cinema 4D.
  • Reopen Evolphin Zoom plugin from Cinema 4D plugins menu.
