FreeOrion includes support for multiple languages. As we approach 1.0, translations will become an important part of the project. During the earlier stages it is not so critical, as much of the game content will change.

Anyone interested in adding support for another language can do so with these steps:

  1. In default/ copy the existing eng_stringtable.txt and rename it to represent the language you are translating into, eg. fre_stringtable.txt
  2. Edit this file, and create the translated entries
  3. Edit default/config.xml and modify the variable stringtable-filename to use the file you created

That's it!
