I'm halfway through translating the game to a new language: Norwegian. I even made new graphics for the norwegian flag button. All monster names have been translated and half of the contents of messages.pbi

I'll get the rest done later. (It's a lot of work!)

I am not really sure if a norwegian version is worth doing all that work :roll:
All skandinavians speak very good english.

Same could be said about the german version. That exists only because I speak that language close to perfect and it was the language the original version also supported :lol:

I know it's probably not worth the work, but I have 12 hours to kill tomorrow on a train trip and it would be awesome to be able to play the game in my second native language :P (and I never was the one to back down from a challenge!)

I'm thinking it never hurts for an open source roguelike to have support for many languages ;)

I asked some time ago to translate into Italian, I was told that it was not possible, now is it?

Possible - yes. But it is a lot of work! (I mean a lot!)

I have been translating for 6 hours or so and a lot is still not done. (mostly spell, item and skill descriptions)

There are numerous source files that need to be browsed through to find all the language strings:
messages.pbi (the main bulk of messages)
init_monsters.pbi (monster names)
init_items.bpi (item names and description)
init_skills.pbi (skill name and description)
init_spells.pbi (spell name and description)

There are almost 2000 lines to translate.
