Like the original, OpenXcom supports translation of all ingame strings. However, the format has been changed to make it easier to edit, maintain and add support for Unicode.

Format

Language files are stored in plain-text UTF-8 (no BOM) format with Linux linebreaks. If you don't know what this is, get a text editor that does (I recommend Notepad++ for Windows users). Here's a typical language file:

ENGLISH (US)
STR_AVENGER_UFOPEDIA
TRANSPORTER AND COMBAT SPACECRAFT.  THE ULTIMATE REPLICATION OF ALIEN TECHNOLOGY.
STR_INTERCEPTOR_UFOPEDIA
COMBAT AIRCRAFT WITH DUAL PULSE DETONATION ENGINES AND SPECIALLY SHIELDED ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS.  THE BEST AVAILABLE EARTH BASED TECHNOLOGY.
STR_LIGHTNING_UFOPEDIA
TRANSPORTER AND COMBAT CRAFT.  A CRUDE BUT EFFECTIVE REPLICATION OF ALIEN PROPULSION SYSTEMS.
STR_SKYRANGER_UFOPEDIA
TROOP TRANSPORTER.  THE FASTEST OF ITS KIND, WITH VERTICAL TAKE OFF AND LANDING (V.T.O.L.) CAPABILITY.
STR_FIRESTORM_UFOPEDIA
COMBAT CRAFT.  THIS ONE-MAN FIGHTER REPLICATES THE CLASSIC ALIEN FLYING SAUCER DESIGN, WITH CENTRAL PROPULSION UNIT.
