[Interest] QtIFW Problem Translating ControlScript

Dont many QtIFW Users here it seems.

Can at least someone(TM) tell me what the (currently) preferred way is,
to add the Translation File for the Config Script to the Installer?

1.) Method 1:

The Documentation says "... preferred to put it in the config Folder
..." - so I have tried that by placing the "de.qm" in the config Folder
and settting the Translations Part in the config.xml to:


The Binarycreator copies the File into the Installer executable but the
modified Strings for the Widgets dont get translated:

2.) Method 2:
According to a Comment from Karsten Heimrich in Bug Report QtIFW-494
(way back from 2014) this should work:

Only put the Language Code here:

Then creating a "resources" Subfolder under the root Folder, placing the
de.qm and the .qrc Resource File in it. I also modified the Prefix to
"/translations/own". Running the Installer with --verbose tells me, that
the File gets found, but nothing gets translated.

Any minor Hint is welcome :)

For those interested / suffering from the same Problem: I created a BR:
