TStrings.tbl is the mechanism used to generate localization (Translated Strings). If you've ever wondered why you see "XSTR("Some Text", some number) in tbls and missions, this is why.

I already know about the utility of the Tstrings.tbl. What I wanted to know is if it is any possibility to generate them automatically (i.e. simply having to translate the file in the convenient language, in my case french.) So we will have the strings.tbl for the interface, translated once and for all, and the tstrings.tbl for the missions. Petar91 did translate FS2 into french
some time ago but, apart from the interface table who is actually usable, we can't use the missions files today because of the various upgrade made, i.e. to correct bugs or adding nameplates.

I know that there IS an interest on a project like this (I saw it in some threads, like THIS
