New strings to accommodate translators. They have already been added to every language file but might need reviewing:

STR_HAS_GONE_BERSERK_FEMALE
STR_HAS_PANICKED_MALE
STR_HAS_PANICKED_FEMALE
STR_HAS_BECOME_UNCONSCIOUS_MALE
STR_HAS_BECOME_UNCONSCIOUS_FEMALE
STR_HAS_DIED_FROM_A_FATAL_WOUND_MALE
STR_HAS_DIED_FROM_A_FATAL_WOUND_FEMALE
STR_HAS_BEEN_KILLED_MALE

Hythlodaeus brought up a good point on IRC: Would now be a good time to issue a formal request for some TFTD translations?

I'd have to convert them to the proper format first. :P

At this point I think we should insert 3 new text strings for the following events:

"The construction of X at Y has been completed" -> specifically for when notifying the player when the construction of a base installation is done. Currently the game uses "The production of" for both items and installations, which can lead to some translation problems. Having a separate string for constructions would look better and would be more explicit for first time players.

"Equip Soldiers" -> the new feature that allows equipping soldiers in the base menu is currently accessed by a button named "Inventory", after the battlescape button of the same name, which I feel it isn't explicit enough. It would perhaps be better to have a separate string for it, something like "Equip Soldiers".

"Explosive Primed for X turns" -> a new feature displays an alarm message, every time a grenade is primed. This message is using the "Grenade is already primed!" text which is originally used whenever the player attempts to move a primed grenade in the soldier inventory screen. Because the "already" doesn't fit in this context, and because there are other explosives aside from grenades in the game (namely the High Explosive), I propose the addition of a new string for this event's message, which also indicates the amount of turns selected on the timer. Something like "Explosive Primed for X turns" would do good.

just came across "STR_COMMITTED", which was translated rather weirdly in the german localization strings as "einsatzfreudig" (which literally/approximately translates as "enthusiastic for missions"), and now I was trying to find out what it is being used for. I couldn't find the string name within the github master branch outside of the language files, though, so now I was wondering: a) is it used at all? and b) what was it supposed to be?

Doesn't seem to be used in the original. If I had to guess, it was some kind of relations indicator:
STR_HOSTILE: "HOSTILE"
STR_NEUTRAL: "NEUTRAL"
STR_FRIENDLY: "FRIENDLY"
STR_COMMITTED: "COMMITTED"

so "committed" as in "committed to the cause"? on the same line as "loyal" or "allied"? or do I get that wrong?

you know what, I thought of this a little more, and I believe that this is a remnant of the complex diplomatic system that was planned initially, then scrapped (for lack of time and money) and then much later used for apoc.

My best guess is that these strings

Code: [Select]
STR_HOSTILE: "HOSTILE"
STR_NEUTRAL: "NEUTRAL"
STR_FRIENDLY: "FRIENDLY"
STR_COMMITTED: "COMMITTED"

were used to describe the diplomatic state of the funding nations, depending on their level of pissed-off-ness ;), with the last of them meaning that the nation had signed a pact with the aliens. Do you think that's possible? In that case, I will translate it as "paktiert" for the german version, because I think these strings might be used by people in the near future. (people that create a total conversion involving more lateral diplomatics, like wars for example... :)

STR_MAXFRAMESKIP
STR_MAXFRAMESKIP_DESC

should be pretty self-explanatory.
they go in advanced options.

I don't think it's necessary to keep posting updates here since GetLocalization does that, unless you got a pretty good explanation I guess. :P
