I can’ t accept your answer, sorry, but maybe you didn’t understand the request.
I beg you to have this checkbox in options.
Silmerias asks for an OPTION. There is no consequence for those who don’t want that option. So your arguments about “more people would suffer” or “we don’t want” are irrelevant.
Just because you don’t want this option is not a reason for not giving it to those who want it.
That’s why i’m talking about an excuse. The argument being irrelevant, bringing it up seems to me like bringing up an excuse.
There is NO EXTRA WORK FOR THE TRANSLATORS in doing so.
There would be a little work from the devs, but then again, not much.
The game data already has the string in english, and the strings in your language. Checking this option would cause the game client to choose the english strings for e.g. modules names, and the locale strings for its description.
I made a picture, just to be sure that language is not the reason we are not being understood.
As i get from the log files, there is a string called “itemSubType_TargetPainter” whose content is “Target Painter” in english and “Marcador de objetivo” in spanish
There must bo some kind of string called “itemSubType_TargetPainter_description” whose content is “Reduces target’s shield and hull resistances…” in english and “Reduce las resistencias del casco y escudo…” in spanish
I guess there is a simple way to use strings syntax to automatically detect the strings that should be kept in english and those that should be translated in locale language.
If this doesn’t work, then you could do like so many other games do (EVE online, etc.) and add a new language (French with english names)
