Developer Bigfoot Posted February 26, 2013 Developer Share Posted February 26, 2013 (edited) In order to have a more structured way to create translations, we've implemented the standard method of translations that many applications and websites use: the PO format. This should make translations far easier to create and maintain.To translate Don't StarveDownload POEdit: http://poedit.net Open dont_starve/data/scripts/languages/strings.pot (the PO Template file) inside POEdit. Use the program to translate the game, and save it as [language].po. For example, you save it as "italian.po" Create a new mod for your language, starting from this language template mod. Copy your .po file to your new mod. Edit modmain.lua to point at the name of your file and language code, like this:That's it! You can also edit modinfo.lua to give your language pack a friendly name and description in the Mods menu in-game.To update your translation after a Don't Starve updateEvery update, we will update the template file to include all the new strings we've added. To edit your translation:Open your po file in POEdit. Click Catalog->Update from POT file... and select dont_starve/data/scripts/languages/strings.pot Translate the untranslated text, and save. Do we support non-ASCII fonts?At the moment, we do not support non-ASCII fonts. Edited January 9, 2015 by Bigfoot 7 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
