    Hello,
    I'm thinking about releasing my game on Steam, but only if I can provide it in different languages. The original game is German, I intend to translate it into English and maybe Spanish and/or French. Now, I don't want to check a variable on each dialogue, text and whatnot to decide which language to use, that would make everything really confusing, and it would not translate map names, terms and everything else that is not part of an event. Releasing two separate versions on Steam is not really a good idea, too.

    Sadly MV still doesn't include native multilingual support (that would be such an awesome feature - devs? Hint, hint?), can anyone give me a tip on how this could be achieved?

    THIS is a great localization plugin, and I think you can make use of it to serve your purpose.

    Thanks guys, I'll check them out.
    I totally wasn't aware that plugins actually allow for translations outside of events. So I can also use these to translate map names, menu items system terms and so on? What about stuff that's written in plugins?

    I tested the Iavra's plugin and it works on everything: message, menu, items... I didn't test on plugin texts, but i guess it should be ok.

    Everything.
    With srd translation you can translate your game while you are playtesting. So, in real time you can translate. Even the name of the game in the window you can translate

    Thanks for your help. :)
    I'll go with the translation engine. The ingame translation app has me hooked. It's awesome. It even remembers similar translations.
