    :eek: I can't believe for once I did it correctly right of the bat! the only thing missing was the fr folder! I was indeed wondering how this would be possible without a patch.
    Are we supposed to create a Locale folder and show it to people for reviewal?

    If you want to experiment with the languages, here's the finished languages so far.

    Pretty straightforward formatting. I haven't tested them myself yet, these are just the direct downloads from GetLocalization.

    Helpful, already found a few words that I do not like that weren't as apparent in just text.


    Edit: Hmm, it seems the translations got downloaded early in the process, at least in the Polish case, so a bit of what should be in is missing :p

    Hi Garat: Is it possible to put the newest version into the next update?

    Absolutely not. :) I will not put translations in until they've been vetted. Both in the tool validation and a spot check by me to look for problems.

    Same. Is there
    Thanks Garat. Are we able to download updated localizations ourselves?

    Well... okay. Sounds reasonable. :) Can't wait for the translated version. And help to fix the last misleading translations.

    I don't think so. I have no problem with it, but it requires you to be able to see the files tab, which I think only I have. Just a limitation of how that website works, I think.

    Testing it out I notice that modded content is not subject to this localization effort. I guess it's the modders responsibility but could it still use the same system?

    Okey I see. Would you be so kind and upload updated files like every other day please? or weekly? :)

    When there are enough updates to warrant it, absolutely!

    Are those the same Languages that got created when you first introduced the Localization feature, because i'm pretty sure i created "german (austria)" as a joke back then (the difference is minuscule). But i have to say that looking through both translations i like the german (austria) one quite a bit more than the regular german one...

    I noticed the same. There was like an hour cap.

    Ps. Sorry for a blank post. My phone was acting up.

    Those downloads are just for people to mess around with. They are not anywhere close to what will get integrated into our build.

    To help people to find the right context of the translations: Here is a big collage from various screenshots of the game where you can find a lot (not all) of the words that must be translated. The Full Context.png Context 2 Teil 1.PNG

    Currently PAMM has localization support for mod info, but no one has really localized the mods themselves (at least as far as I know).

    Awesome job! Btw, anybody knows where phrases like "PA ...." ("PA Game Lobby" for example) are from?
