Hi,

I've enjoyed playing the game some time ago, and I'm happy to see development is still going on !
Apparently there is no French translation, so I'd be willing to make one. I am a professional translator, and on my free time I like to hep out on a project I like.
I have taken a quick look at the different game files, but could you provide me with a complete list of files to be translated ?

Hello and welcome to the forum.
The files that need translation are located in share/translation.
This link lists you the pot files: https://bitbucket.org/sumwars/sumwars-code/src/b2e2c0f8f66d/share/translation/potfiles

If you are on Linux you can create a new directory "fr" and run "./update2_pot2po.sh fr" to create the po files which should be worked on.
On Windows you might just copy those pot files, rename them to po and insert header data (Name, EMail, Language).

Thank you for your interest and future help :)

OK, I've downloaded all that, and as I played the game, I looked at it in a different way, seeing how I could translate each sentence. And well, turns out it's all very confusing, isn't it ? The story, I mean.
Some sentences make very little sense ("This junk ?" blurted out of nowhere) and some dialogues do not feel very natural.

So is there any plan to rewrite any of that ? Because of of now the story is confusing and the dialogues are not helping.

I'll start the French translation on Weblate.
