Localization at app level.

Hi all,


In my application i need to give locale support independent of the device locale.

i'm able to do the same, using this post :


but for the language changes to take effect i need to close the app and restart it. (for the .qm file needs to be loaded)

i do not want the user to close the app and restart it. i want all to be handled by my application.

is it possible to do this programatically?? 


or is there any work around for the same.


Any suggestions and ideas welcome!


Thanks and Regards.
