where can I find the rest of the translation files?

Post by NGMZero »

Edit: You can find the files from Crowdin's here:

short answer: search for all the folders named "locale"
long answer:

Code: Select all

    |--📂base
    |  |--📂campaigns
    |  |  |--📁tight-spot\locale\lang\tight-spot.cfg

Hello, I am currently working on translating Factorio into Arabic. I am using a workaround that will make Arabic display correctly in-game but doesn't make sense whatsoever to Arabic readers in the script files (which will make future proofing or editing it a hassle without some 3rd party app to act as a translator) because of this I do not want to mess with the work that is already done in Crowdin.

Currently, I only know about:
game_installation_folder\data\base\locale\ar\base.cfg

Crowdin has many other files
(core.ini, demo_level-01.ini,...,etc)

I am wondering where I drop/create these files.
thank you.

The other main file is in 'core' mod: game_installation_folder\data\core\locale\ar\core.cfg
The others are in base\campaigns, base\scenarios, and base\tutorials

Yes, I am aware of this. my best guess is it's too annoying to make a render engine for those languages when you can't even read them.
thank you.

I still want to translate it as a side weekend project.

Edit: Thank you for file's locations, I'll use this as a reference for the rest.
