Creating a translation

Frets On Fire allows all the in-game text to be translated to the language chosen by the player. This is accomplished through the use of translation files, which tell how certain English phrase is translated to a particular language. To create a translation for your favourite language:
  1. Grab the translation template files for the game and the tutorial.
  2. Add the translated text to each entry like this:
            msgid "Get Ready to Rock"
            msgstr "Your translation here"
    Make sure you use a normal text editor instead of a word processor such as Microsoft Word.
  3. Send the translation to us and we'll add it to the next version of the game. Optionally, you may try out the translation by compiling it with msgfmt.
