My english is poor, i'm french

Wonderfull job M. Russel with your FSHost 3 version  ;D

is it possible to envisage a solution so that the messages sent by FSHost to the players using the function "hop" appear in another language that English?

The ideal will be to be able to manage this translation with a txt file as in the case of the file "command.txt"

Thank's for your answer,

Hi, your English is just fine actually.

I was wondering when someone was going to ask for FSHost in another language :-)

I think there are a lot of messages like that, that are in English, and there's currently no way for the FSHost admin to translate them.  For example, a lot of the messages sent back when the user types ?fp, +fp, and -fp are all in English -- plus a lot of text strings on the Remote Access web pages.

To really do this properly, I need to change FSHost so that all of the hard-coded text strings could be translated, and then I would get someone to translate everything, and I'd include multiple language files witih the program.  I'm assuming that if I changed FSHost so it could support multiple languages, I could probably find someone like you to do the translations for your language.  So that's not the hard part.  The hard part is getting FSHost ready to use multiple languages :-)

Let me think about that one and see how hard it would be to do.  I think it's a great idea, but I'm just not sure yet what all is involved.

Glad to hear you're interested in it though.  I'll try to get back to you some time soon with a better answer.



Ok  ;D

If you need  to translate FSHost or a part of this into French language, do not hesitate to contact me  8)

If you need translation to any language I have the staff to do it. You can give me a list of all the languages you want the text translated to and I'd be able to get the full list done in a day or two.
