Internationalization
« on: June 02, 2008, 01:07:37 »
Over two years ago, before the first public release of Odamex even saw the light of day, an enhancement for internationalization was posted in the bug tracker.

Odamex currently has an ever growing user base with many of its users coming from the Czech Republic, Russia, Germany, and a wide variety of Spanish speaking nations (among many others). There may not be a better time than now than to attempt to make this proposal a reality.

I recently began the creation of console fonts for a variety of different languages and will continue if there is interest in this project throughout the community. However, this truly has to be a community effort as many things will need to be translated by a fluent speaker of each respective language. Then, if possible, they will be looked over by a second fluent speaker to ensure clarity.

We're going to start off small working on translating the Odamex menu system and then we'll try and move on from there. This is somewhat of a long term project but the more that we can accomplish before even touching the engine, the sooner Odamex can likely support other languages.

So, if you're interested in translating the menu system please let me know what language you're planning on translating and keep me up to date. Make sure you include each line's English counterpart so that it is easy to place everything where it needs to be.


The following status covers the translation of Odamex's menu system to each respective language:

Language:Volunteers as of 06/02/08

Czech: [Status: Vacant]

German: [Status: Vacant]

Russian:Nautilus [Status: In Progress]

Spanish: [Status: Vacant]

Um, not wanting to derail or anything, but are you using gettext for this? Seems like way more effort to do it from scratch...

It took all of 5 minutes to pull that out and organize it.

On second thought gettext isn't worth the hassle given that it's only a few dozen strings -- carry on then.

The main menu options aren't in the list there. Maybe you already have something else planned for that, I dunno.

Actually, anything that is a graphic that can't be changed through strings (all of the main menu is done by graphics in the wad) I left out. On top of that, they're pretty general and I assume game players worldwide understand those few phrases such as "New", "Quit", and "Options".

PANEO LIBRE means FREELOOK, but i wrote PANEO VERT.(ical) on some places because it enables the tilt of the player view. But i guess you can use PANEO LIBRE on all cases and still be right.
