How to localize a .chm file? Firstly, there is an interesting post about this topic on venTAJAmarketing blog. Secondly, I decompiled the file using HTML Help Workshop application and used CatsCradle CAT tool to translate the extracted .html files and others. CatsCradle is inexpensive compared with some other tools.
