iVCam – smartphone instead of webcam

Chinese software development company  Рe2esoft is publisher of iVCam application. Software website link: https://www.e2esoft.com/ivcam/
It is made of smartphone app (Android or iOS) and for computer (Windows 7/8/10). It is allow you to use smartphone connected to WiFi network (the same that computer is connected) as webcam device.
Some time ago i sent Polish translation, but instead they put own translation (that isn't bad). If you would like to use the one i prepared, you may download this file: strings.xml.
To make it work just put it inside "resource" directory, where software is installed (default C:\Program Files\e2eSoft\iVCam\resource) overwriting file that is already there with the same filename.
This file is prepared for version 5.3.5 of iVCam.
