Post About translations

Hello Shadow and Delilah.
Thanks for allowing us to preorder and play the beta.
Here I would like to concentrate on translations. Will it be translatable like your previous games? This time, have you put Unicode use? I hope, because it would enable a Japanese translation too.

It uses the same localization code that Din's Curse did, so it should do French just fine but not Japanese.

Thank you. French is fine for me. Should I wait for the v.1.0 before I start to translate?

It's really up to you. Right now I would guess there will be quite a few little changes here and there. I am trying to add completely new lines at the bottom of the translation files so at least those are a little easier to see.

Although if you start translating now, you might get a faster turn around for fixes.

I've started translating the game. Almost finished the UI and the menus.

I work in concentric circles, from the most important part of the files to the less urgent ones. Since the quest file is huge, maybe I will do it the last.
Anyway, the game is so interesting, so well written that I enjoy it twice when translating it! Thanks for a so beautiful work! (and it is still in beta!!)

You're translating into french ? Japanese ? Other ?
I was about to start french, so if you're already on it, i'll pass or complete your work.

The races introduction texts I translated appear in the shipyard, but not when creating the ship. Is it normal?

I had to redo those lines a bit by splitting them into multiple parts. If you go look at lines in the next translation files, you will see what I mean.
