by DavidW in Translations of v22Merging SCS and SCSII created some inevitable issues with .tra files. What I did was basically:
- Start with the SCSII .tra file
- Add any required strings from the SCS .tra file, with their string number increased by 20,000
- Add any new strings required for the new version
As of the v22 beta I've only done this for the English version of the game. This means that there are currently no translations of strings pertaining to BG1 into languages other than English. Partly I skipped this on shortness-of-time grounds, partly because I was worried about breaking something and not noticing. (I don't really read any of the languages into which SCS(II) is translated.)
I'd like to crowd-source this. If anyone wants to make the effort to convert any of the tra files for other languages and send them to me (either posted here or by email to david dot wallace at balliol dot ox dot ac dot uk) I'd very much appreciate it.
Here's what you have to do (using French.tra as an example):
(1) Start with the French.tra file currently in stratagems/tra/French as a baseline
(2) Download version 21 of SCS (not SCSII) and open the french.tra file in scs/tra/french.
(3a) If you have time, look at stratagems/tra/english.tra, and for each string with a number greater than 20,000, subtract 20,000 from the string number, find that string in scs/tra/french/french.tra, paste it into stratagems/tra/French/French.tra, and add 20,000 to its number.
For instance: if stratagems/tra/english/english.tra contains string @22007, find string @2007 in scs/tra/French/French.tra and paste it into stratagems/tra/French/French.tra with number @22007.
(3b) As a quicker way of doing this, just take the whole of scs/tra/French/French.tra, add 20,000 to each string number, and paste the whole file onto the end of stratagems/tra/French/French.tra
(4) Optionally, by all means provide me with translations of genuinely new strings. (But don't for goodness sake try to translate all the strings missing in v22 without raiding the already-translated versions in scs v21.)
