Not dead. I've been absent for several weeks and my free time is very limited at the moment, so a long term possibility but not likely in the short term

Hello !!

I'm from Spain.  What about Spanish language?? Is it possible? I offer my free time to translate all the game.  Some "friki" forums friends can help too !!  :)

So you can upload spanish version or multilanguage in a same download. 

Thank you very much, great game !!

¿Hay alguna posibilidad de traducir el juego al español? ¿Es posible? Me ofrezco para en mi tiempo libre traducir todo el juego.  Tengo algunos amigos frikis del foro que pueden ayudarme también.

Así puedes subir una versión en español o hacer el juego para descarga en multilenguaje.

Muchas gracias, ¡¡ gran juego !!

Hola,

I am open to the idea of doing different language versions. It won't be for a while though. I need to get v5.70 out of the way first and then I'll decide what to tackle next :)

Good, I'd love to translate Aurora to Portuguese-BR.  I am a very new player, but I am loving Aurora 4x so much.  I bet people of my country would love it so much as I do.

I can localize it to Romanian if you need - I just need the text strings.

Are there any translations going on right now? If so I would be ok to add Czech language to the pool :) I am in love with this game right now.

At the moment, to translate into another language would require decompiling and then translating all the visible text. Steve (to my knowledge) has never tokenized the strings so they could be easily swapped out with another language.

Here's one who can provide Japanese translation.
I believe some of us are "micromanagement freak" and will love this great game!

I think translation is technically possible by diassembling Aurora. exe and rewrite texts in disassembler codes followed by assembling to produce translated Aurora. exe.
Actually, with binary editor and even without disassembler, I successfully rewrote label of a button on Economy Screen to Japanese.

Analyzing assembler code will be a hard work.  Creating an inventory of all locations of text to translate in assembler code will help.
But not only this method would take so much effort, but also updates of Aurora itself would make the inventory incompatible. . . it needs another management job for the inventory.

And I dunno much about law, disassembling exe and distribute it would be illegal.

So the smartest way is to ask Steve to implement multilingual support.
I'm going to make another post about it to suggestion thread.

Your best bet is to put it into the Suggestions thread. That way Steve will definitely take notice of it at some point.
