Hi, especially Alexander,

I did prepare a test of accelerators for Windows (others??) 
in English.

So far I only did for the .tex document interface.
Only the Search and Replace dialog boxes were already done 

I attach the TeXworks_en.qm file which should go to the 
translations resource folder, normally:

Let me know:
1) if it works,
2) if the choice of accelerators is good,
3) if I should proceed.

I intend to also do this for French.
For other languages, it is the work of the translators, who 
work with Linguist.
