TDM Core

99%
  • All the strings in the menu, the HUD, the in-game messages, the different menus as well as inventory item names and categories have been made translatable.
  • A charset has been defined and made supported by the code.
  • Both the menu font (Carleton) and the HUD font (Stone) have been patched to include the foreign characters. (Stone misses a few, esp. uppercase ones.)
  • The bitmaps in the various menus where converted to text, including the huge headers
  • The default Doom3 english.lang has been slimmed down (from >5400 to 200 entries), then all the nec. strings for TDM have been added, including a lot of sensible default strings that are either useful or used in FMs (like names for inventory items, speaker names and so on), resulting over 1130 entries.
  • There is a script which can convert old FMs into I18N capable FMs, even matching different translations.
  • Both the 0xff character bug, as well as the problem that choiceDefs do not work have been resolved
  • Menu and inventory name translations are complete for English, Danish, Italian, Czech, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, French, Spanish, German, Romanian, and Hungarian.
  • Swedish, Slovak and Dutch can be selected in the menu, but as of February 2017 still have substantially incomplete translations. Anyone capable of providing said translations, even in part, please post in the TDM forum under the "I want to Help" section.
  • Turkish has been added to the menu translation list and will be available in 2.05

TODO

  1. The Download and Load/Save menu still need to be converted so their headlines can be translated.
  2. Adding accented and Umlaut characters the other fonts (only the 24px variant needs still to be done). To make this easier, a Font Patcher utility has been written.
  3. When an l10n.pk4 file is updated, the entire mission is redownloaded. That should be avoided somehow.
  4. Find more people who can contribute translations – maybe make it easier by creating a website where anyone can contribute translations for individual strings, ala launchpad?
