Hi,
all translation pages are still empty, does not exist yet.
When will they be available so I can update the ones I had updated on old nraas from August and do more?

Translation's are getting a new system that is much better than just a wall of text on a page which I'm still ironing out on so they may be unavailable for a bit.

So what are you planning instead?
I could imagine that you could make the string.txt for each as a download available, so they are in the right encoding for each (I use NRaasPacker to export and compare the files with notepad++), and we can upload the updated string.txt files.
But it would be still important to know, if you made changes to the english one, if we can see the update time of the english-string.txt ones you updated, you even would not have to write special information if this can be shown automatically.

I suggest, NRaasPacker is a good tool for all translators.

The old system is just a mess. I want something that gets rid of the KEY STR entries to make it less intimidating for users who don't know code to contribute translations. I am working on a system that will asks users what languages they know and then when I add new strings that lack translations the site will prompt to help, probably on the contribute page, by just entering the translation below the English string and letting it build the format needed to paste into the mods behind the scenes for me. Also a way to list by those which were recently added to the mods or changed so you don't have to fumble around doing comparison in Notepad++. It will also keep track of when I last updated the translation in the mod so I don't have to anymore. Overall easier for everyone.

Hi,

just wanted to let you know in case you didn't, the link for the sleepfreedom mod is not working (gives a file not found error).

Cheers

Sounds interesting, but I understand this will take time. So what about my last translations I did? I think the fast way is
- I can upload exported string.txt for you to implement,so that people have an updated translation (how can I upload?)

Is there an alternative place to look for some of the mods that are currently down?

Which mods are down? Most of them should be fine now.
