Split and Concatenate files directly from Windows Explorer
If you've ever needed to break up a large file into several smaller ones, ConCat provides the facilities you need directly from File Explorer.
You don't need to run a separate program to do it, because once you've installed ConCat it's always available right where you need it - in an Explorer right click context menu. Just select and right click the file(s), choose the menu option, and you're there.
The split facility lets you break a file into commonly used disk (or custom) sized chunks. It automatically names each file section in a convenient manner so that it's easy to re-join them.
The concatenate facility lets you join the previously split files to reconstitute a copy of the original file.
Note: The concatenate facility will only join raw split files. It will not intelligently join separate structured files such as audio, video, or word processor documents into a usable composite file.

From V4.1 ConCat loads its UI components (dialog, strings, error messages) from a separate resource DLL (concat.lang). By replacing this DLL with an equivalent one in a different language, the ConCat GUI will display in that language.
We don't have the resources to do comprehensive translation work, so we're opening this up to anyone who may want to do this for themselves using their own resource editing tools (such as Visual Studio or Resource Hacker) to edit the resource DLL.
Currently we have the following non-English resource files available.
To have ConCat use a new language DLL:
You may need to log off/on for the change to take effect.
Translating the Resources
Start from the supplied master English resource file concat.lang (in the ConCat installation directory - which is normally %ProgramFiles%\JD Design\ConCat).
Open this resource DLL with a tool that provides you with the facility to edit resource DLLs (such as MS Visual Studio).
Items that need translating:
Please let us know of any translation you do, we would like to make your work available to everyone if we can come to a mutual agreement to recognise your work. For example, you might like to have the file on your own web site and have people visit your site to advertise your other work in order to download the file.
