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
- Grab the translation template files for
the game and
- 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.
- 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.
