Translation?


#1

Currently Big Pharma is only available in three languages English, French and German. I would like to know what are the plans to translate this game in other languages. Can the community do it, for example Democracy 3 can be translated by the community by going to the following link https://www.transifex.com.

Yes the game can be translated by the community, as i done it before the official german translation was out.

Simply make copies of the strings_en.data, the names_en.data and the drugnames_en.data

The you have to change the en into another country code, for example strings_demod.data, so that there is no conflict with the original files.

The main text is in the strings.data, so all the descriptions and event textes are here.
The names.data contains the way how your drugs are named while they are processed.
And the drugnames.data contains all finished product names.

When you do a translation you should check, that you save the text in the utf8-codepage.
It should also be possible to use non latin characters do to utf8, but no guarantee on that.
