There is a problem in Engine.rut
Entry DefaultPlayerName under GameInfo section.
If value is not "Player", game asks player to change his name.

P. S.
Unreal segfaults without Core.rut file while Language=rut.
Is it normal situation?

Yes, unfortunately Unreal is very unforgiving in Linux about such things.

Spanish and Italian are still incomplete and missing entries.
Especially those need to be re-checked (compared against the int files):
Engine
UWindow
UMenu
UBrowser

in Spanish I've seen Editor missing and for both languages I need another translation for the installer yet:
SetupUnrealPatch

I'm really out of time these last months! :(

Anyone can send me the single - most important - entries in PVT and edit ita files with my translated ones?

The task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen, but to think what nobody has yet thought, about that which everybody sees - E.S.

If I have time, and if I will learn how to, I might make you a Hebrew localization.
I speak this language, and (as you pretty much see, obviously) I'm also fluent in English, so I think I'm ready as soon I know most of the basic principles, except for a few, like the extensions. I know the international English extension ("*.int") and the Hebrew one (that's "*.heb") so there might be a few things that I still need to know, but not this.
Bottom line: You can count me in for localization of text.

Extension of localisation files should end with t letter. Btw, Why?

I think it is because it goes like: .

"frt": french translation
"det": german (deutsch) translation

I think end it ends with "t" because someone found it a good idea to be that way. Who knows...

Actually, British English localizations are written in "*.eng" files. Don't know why, probably because there's another language that is "*.ent".
And anyway, something that will prob get it 2 make sense:
frt: Frentch
det: Deutch (German for its own name)

But eng (British english) is an exception.
Let's not talk about what's an exception and what's not, There's a problem I find anywhere there's the word "You" in the original English version: Hebrew is a Shemic language, and all Shemic languages have different tenses for appeal. In English, "You" can either mean a male, a female, or a group of people. But in Hebrew, Arabic and other Shemic languages, there are different tenses. Atha for a he, Ath for a She, Athem for a group. So, obviously, the player can be either a man or a woman, so what can I do?
BTW, one of the reasons I accepted 2 make a translation is that I had seen a Document in the Unreal Engine documentation that depicted an Arabic localization of UT2004. So if UE2 suports ME languages, UE1 might also.

I just added ending letter in brackets for female players (for Russian translation).
Like in "%username% died" phrase.
But I don't know which way is suitable for Hebrew language.

The French translation that came with Unreal used an all-male conjugation, and I rolled with it. In many cases It is also possible to change the sentence in a way that no gender is priviledged (moving a word or to, adding something or chaning the entire sentence can null the need for gender-based variations).
You must construct additional pylons.

The funny thing is the Died message can be checked with bIsFemale.. but they never did that for some reason.

I guess the reasoning is that most playes are male and since the message is related to the name of the player and not the picture of the character who cares about the 2 or 3 females (or males with female names) who play the game.

So I'll probably refer to the player with its name, and not as "you".

In my opinion British English should be ukt as in UK translation.

As for my own report, about 20% of Polish translation (plt) has been done yesterday.

Actually, it should follow the ISO-693-1 specification as much as possible, and 'in' is not even a part of it, thus doesn't conflict with anything. 'ukt' is not valid because it's reserved for Ukrainian. 'ent' (as in Enterprise :D ) would not be specific enough. It could be 'qet' (Queen's English). But since it's undefined, it could also be 'bret' or even 'engbt' - we are not living in DOS times when filenames were 8.3 after all.

Also, apparently "International English" means "use whichever modern English you like". Even more interestingly, some concepts of it include a "fair share"-style one, where American English and British English get the same amount of attention - for instance, each odd line is spelled in American, each even - in British English. Or, instead of lines, chapters (or files) can be used.

This seems to be a reasonable policy. Let's do this with every language's dialects.

I've reached Core.* now. But there are 2 lines which i don't get. These are LangId and SubLangId. How do I know Hebrew's Language Id and Sub LangId?
