Well, I've translated all the lines following the current instructions anyway, so if you want to take a look at them maybe they can be used. Whatever works best.

I can do a Dutch translation, if nobody is doing that already.

And 25% done. If somebody else is already doing this, maybe we can share comments...

-- another edit

78% done. This will be finished soon.

Send it to us when you have finished it.

I'm not aware of any work being done on it, so I think it's safe to start working on it.

I'm not aware of it, so I guess it's okay for you to do it.

BTW, I've added the people who has offered to work on some translations here: http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/HOWTO ... anslations
If you want to work on a language that's not translated yet and doesn't have anyone assigned on that list, it's probably safe for you to start. Anyway it's always interesting to keep us informed so we can update that.

I think someone mentioned to me on IRC that he was working on a polish translation but I don't remember who it was (aquadran maybe?). I am currently away from home and I don't have my personal laptop, so I have no way to check. You might try to catch him on IRC to see if my memory is correct.

I will update the wiki with the information that I have once I am back home next week.

I just want to point out that the Hungarian translation I started was only for testing while I was trying to migrate the code and get it to work with the latest trunk. Hungarian's not my first language, so if someone else feels like picking it up, I'm sure a lot of what I have in there will need to be changed ;)
I starting the Hungarian translation, but need a little help :oops:
Nope.. found in Wiki page :)

Thank you guys.

I`m doing ok. Right now at 17% translated, it`s kind easy.

I hope I can finish before the next release.

Btw, when I finish what should I do? ;)

You can propose your translation to the team by posting the po file on the patch tracker.

I have edited my first post to answer that question (so that you do not have to go to the wiki to fetch the answer) :wink:

If i change the language to hungarian the scummvm says :
Failed to load localized font 'helvb12.bdf'. Using non-localized font and GUI language instead!

Myown compiled ScummVM:
ScummVM 1.3.0svn (Nov 9 2010 07:05:05)
Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 RGB zLib FluidSynth Theora

Debug log:
File::open: opening 'helvb12-iso-8859-2.fcc' failed
File::open: opening 'helvb12-iso-8859-2.bdf' failed

I create helvb12-iso-8859-2.bdf with font-util-1.2.0 (ucs2any helvB12.bdf 8859-1.TXT ISO8859-1 8859-2.TXT ISO8859-2)
Please any help me, how to create required helvb12-iso-8859-2.fcc file ?

I think my memory is playing tricks on me. I can't find any trace of somebody mentioning working on it. So you are welcome to start working on it. Freeshadow (who posted a few posts above you) might also want to help.

.fcc is our custom 'Font Cache' it is auto-created by ScummVM, and then it gets reused. The reason is that parsing .bdf is a lengthy process so we save binary counterpart of it.

In order to make GUI find the font put it either in your theme directory, or in a directory where you keep scummvm.
