  1. Hi, I'm from Spain and I have some experience translating from English. I'd like to begin with St Lucia's mission, but I have some questions. I have read the topic 'How can I help?' and followed the link http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=I18N , but it is broken. I have unpacked the mission and found a file named english.lang. It seems to contain all the text of the mission. I guess that I should copy this file to another file named spanish.lang and start translating. But what should I do with the file when I finish? And how can I test my translating? Is there any problem with international characters? (áéíóúüñÁÉÍÓÚÜÑ¡¿) What codification should I use? Is there any problem if the translation of a book takes up more pages (or less) than the original text? Is there any kind of hyphenation implemented? I have found that specific objects' names -like keys and readables- are in the maps/*.map file, defined under the label 'inv_name'. What about arrows, flashbombs, etc? And how should I define the Spanish version of these names? Is there any further information I should know?
  2. I'm sorry for asking a common question. I have just registered in the forum and couldn't see the search dialog so far.
  3. I have seen videos in Youtube with the intro of the mission Tears of St Lucia, and they had subtitles, but I can't find the option to enable them, not even in the config file. Is there a way to have subtitles? Or the game has no subtitles anymore?
