Hello István,

There is a whole system for translation in place. It's not finished 
completely and there are still some rough edges. I can explain in detail 
how to do that.

Can we go back to the start and an unpatched unmodified installation and 
go from there?

As far as I can tell you are using the standalone/developer version of 
Xerte, correct?

There are 4 components of standalone xerte that needs translation, if 
you want to be able to author in Hungarian, i.e. that wizard forms are 
in Hungarian too. If you're fine with the wizards being in English, and 
you want the end-result to be in Hungarian (for the learner, that 
involves much less work.)
