All the texts of the program are strings, why not load all the texts strings of a .txt file when you start the program (or another file type)?

The idea of this is add the possibility of change the language of the program with a file... & if isn't hard add a folder called languages & with a new menu option select any of the avalaible languages (by default english).

That new selection to languages would be on preferences.


Well... we can add that, although I don't see this as prioritive at the moment.

The question is, who from what country would like one? If there is no need for it then i don't see the point in making it (it would take alot of time making the system + everytime some feature, window etc is added the old files become scrap, n u need each new language file re trranslated)

FS-21 wants a spanish version #Tongue... I could do a brazilian one, but really few people would use it... I don't even see a single updated Brazilian site and I desesperatelly searched on Google and Cadê when I was writting the community links ini file but only few old and with absolutelly no modding content at all was found. From the visitors of PPM, really few of them are brazilians... they can be counted on the fingers pratically... (and there would have a lot of fingers remaining).... Maybe a language that would be used a lot is dutch, since there are a lot of dutch people who visit PPM... Germany also has a strong community... but my german and dutch language knowledge are null...

There are many dutch people in the community indeed, I'm sure you would find one who could do the dutch translation...

german could be done by me.

but I think it's not that important, I mean most modders are good enough in english to handle that tool.

Brazilian community is like the spanish community (small) & my suggestion is more to other big communities (the 3 popular communities that I know is the English, German & French)

With a unique text file with the english texts open the liberty of traslate (or not) by any fan (or only fix bad english spelling without necessity of download & recompile all the code Laughing )

But like I said is only a idea... ins't important (Is better fix all possible bug on this new version... or add a new tool Wink)

In some countries very few people know English, I could instate people to these games and to mod them if they could understand what they say.

Authors should spend time to new features, instead of multi-language UI IMO.

At the end this is Open Source - you can get a SVN snapshot and edit all strings and then compile it.

IIRC banshee made an external text file to hold the language information rather than puting them inside the exe. Tho i think it was an ASCII file rather than unicode.
