translate WCS to spanish
Well... I finish the prologue  :(

And my only problem is that I talk a little english so I had to pause the game any time to read the story ^^ (I can read perfectly english  :p)

The matter is that There are many fans of WC that they at least do not know to read English so I question me if exist a way to at least translate the briefing and the script of the missions ant put subs to the scenes...

About of the scenes  I don't know if that can be possible but the other if that can be translated by a file... I would not have problems to translate it....

So I'll wait an answer of the developer team and if there are some latin guy interested on help me... I apreciate that ^^

I do not say anything to translate the scenes or the dialogues to the Spanish language because already you have enough problems to obtain voice acting ^^

Greeting!!!!!
Alek.

PD: Excuse my poor english

Well, you could simply take the mission files, which are nothing more but text files, and translate them :)

That's not the best way to do things though.

I wrote up this post for how to do things for BtRL a little while back. Following that guide would be far smarter.

Re: translate WCS to spanish
Yeah, I know 'bout that bit. We are using it for the German translation. :)

I am not sure whenever or not FS2 will be able to render specific German characters though. It should, shouldn't it?

Re: translate WCS to spanish
And the real beauty of doing it that way is that if WCS has to patch any of their missions then the translation will continue to work (or will require only minor edits).

I'm not certain. It should be able to if you set the language to German but there have been reports of that causing other problems with the HUD. Even if it doesn't now a change is being worked on to make sure it does work in the future.

I can only hope it will not interfere with our current missions. We are using lots of unicode characters, which are currently invisible, to cram as many ships as possible into one mission. ;)

Re: translate WCS to spanish
I do the same thing myself. It would break a lot of missions if it changed that behaviour.

That is related to the strings.tbl. The original FS2 strings tbl (the one included with Saga) does not have all entries for the German laguage, which is why the hud appears to be broken. Including strings.tbl from the German version should fix this issue.

Re: translate WCS to spanish
Ah. I didn't know that. I'll have to see about getting that updated for BtRL then. Cause I think we had a few problems with people who already had the German version of FS2 installed.

I assume that there is a proper German version of Strings.tbl in the WCS download then?

Can you post a copy for me please? I only have the English version so unless DaBrain has the German version installed I don't know where to get it from.
