Since the current release for IPS 4.5.x, this is a completely new, rebuilt and updated translation. The correct style and punctuation were taken care of, all grammatical errors were removed, the correct construction of sentences and the specific terminology of our native language were taken care of. We do not use special characters as emoticons, we do not change the default icons in the Administrator Panel - everything is exactly as in the original English language.
Please report all bug corrections, suggestions or claims to us in the appropriate topic on the forum: https://www.ipsbeyond.pl/topic/10683-spolszczenie-ips-community-suite/
