AntSnes localization – help required

Would you rather use AntSnes in your native language? With your help it could be possible with the next AntSnes release. At least Russian translation was requested. However I can’t speak Russion, so I can’t do the localization. Now you can contribute to the AntSnes project by translating the strings used in the AntSnes to you native language.
First download the Original AntSnes English Strings. There are three language files in the zip, and all of them needs to be translated for full localization.
Then translate the strings, and save to files in format AngSnesGeneralStrings.lxx, where xx is the Symbian OS language code for you language. You can find the language codes on the table below. For example Russian files should be name as AntSnesGeneralStrings.l16.

  4. khan4251 says:

    I tried to translate it to Polish(27) but i have problems with the lines:
    “On”, “Off”
    “Popup text for Off”
    Which string of ON OFF Popup is to which option?
    For Example which string numbers are used for Enable Audio?
    Can i use ó,ł,ż,ź and characters?

    • Summeli says:

      You can use any characters you like. The “On” and “Off” are the correct string. The “Popup text for xxx”f is just generated stuff. You can leave the english string on those places if you like.
