I made a new Brainstorming thread (and wiki entry) about Translation / Stringtable stuff...

viewtopic.php?p=17900#17900

(It's not entirely redundant, in that the new thread is hopefully for discussion of the stuff on the wiki and slightly more technical details that probably don't belong on a Suggestions thread.)

I'm making an italian translation of FO... soon i'll post it so the italian player can easily help too...
The research portion is really long to translate and the dinamic description of various effects sometimes do not have much sense :roll: ... But i'm working on it! :wink:

Hello everybody,
This project is great !
I think I can manage to start translation in French. But, I need to know how to do this. I didn't read the code yet, so I need to have some intel to translate properlly in French.

This should get you started:
http://www.freeorion.org/index.php/Languages - translation method and F.O.O.T
http://www.freeorion.org/index.php/Fre_stringtable.txt - french stringtable

I don't know how relevant this is to how everything currently works, but I guess it's worth a look anyway:

While looking at http://www.freeorion.org/index.php/Languages I saw that nobody had begun translating FreeOrion into Swedish. I could sure give it a try. In fact, I have already started a little with making a Swedish stringtable.
How do I edit the wiki to upload it there?

Welcome and good luck with this! Just create an account and you should be able to edit/create pages.

go to:
http://www.freeorion.org/index.php?titl ... ction=edit

... assuming "Swe" is the proper 3 letter abbreviation of "Swedish"... I'm just guessing on that.
