    Default translation

      Hi,

       

      I am developing an InDesign plugin in C++ and I run into the following issue:

       

      I have a combobox, in my .fr file, like so:

       

                                      EVEDropDownListWidget 
                                      (
                                          someWidgetID, 
                                          kSysDropDownPMRsrcId, 
                                          kBindNone, 
                                          Frame(0, 0, 100, 20),
                                          kTrue, 
                                          kTrue, 
                                          {{
                                              someStringKey
                                          }},
                                          kEVEAlignLeft | kEVERegularSpaceAfter, 
                                      ),
      

       

      I load some English words into the combobox, for example: "Default".

      But something strange happens: When I use the Dutch version or German version of InDesign, it will automatically translate these values... As if ID has some internal dictionary.

       

      Default -> Becomes: Standaard (For Dutch)

      Default -> Becomes: Standard (For German)

       

      But I don't want that... I want it to remain "Default" no matter which version/language of InDesign is installed.

      What can I do to disable it?
