    Unit And Building Names

    I expect that the name is transliterated rather than translated, so it's the original Latin represented by Cyrillic letters.

    Translation of command

    The /say has to remain at the start of the string. That's a standard taken from IRC which puts commands at the start of a post only.

    Misc simulation - translation

    I think that was done on purpose to make the AI sound less mechanical.

    Translation question and issue

    Whatever sounds better in your language. Seems like 0AD can handle the absence of the variable in one of the forms (which BTW is not common), otherwise the original English test would not work. The "other" form definitely needs to have it.

    Yep, that would be good. At the moment, we have Old Irish for the Britons, which is not correct, but the best that could be done at the time.

    Translation advise

    Absolutely leave them empty - the game will fall back to the original English when something hasn't been translated. If you just copy/paste the English text, it will be harder for you to find them later when you do want to translate them.

    Translation advise

    I would start with engine, misc. gui. mod selector and the lobby, then move over to the unit-related stuff. Game Setup Gui is also important, just skip all the quotes and proverbs. For the rest, start with the short strings and skip the long explanations for now - you can return to them later.

    I was just thinking for military in-game because they're gibber. Or for the merchant, and use the coracle name for the fishing boat? I have no issue with the word for the merchant anyway - I'm not familiar with the word at all, but then I don't speak ancient languages. Sounds plausible. Yep. Combine it with the word for? That would be in the letter p somewhere, since you said that Gallic is p-Celtic.

    Regarding the name for the fishing boat, the modern derivatives of "longos" mean "ship" both in Welsh and Goidelic, so that word might be more fitting to a bigger, military vessel? Modern Gaelic for a fishing boat would be "eathar", Welsh is cwch pysgota - cwch would be the descendant of the curoca. "pysg" is the "fish" bit in the second word. Maybe your Gallic dictionary has something along those lines in it? Insular Celtic also has bát and Welsh has bad for boat.

    You are mistaken with the categorization as P-Celtic. Irish, Scottish and Manx Gaelic are Goidelic languages and as such Q-Celtic. Welsh, Cornish and Breton are Brythonic/p-Celtic. As an example, "5" is "còig" in Goidelic and "pemp" in Brythonic. Both Goidelic and Brythonic are insular Celtic, which is a different branch from Gallic. I don't know much else about Gallic though.

    I found 19 simple issues in C++ code

    ASAN is lots faster than Valgrind, so it should be doable - it will slow down the program by a factor of ~2, so that's not bad at all.
  12. The Basque language is a lot older than the 19th century... so maybe the 19th century is when some form of standardization happened, which is not uncommon for European languages. So, that the modern language has been standardized is not a valid argument - so has Catalan, and this argument would equally disqualify it as a choice. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basque_language#History_and_classification Of course, the language to be used would have to be a historical version of Basque, rather than the modern one. The same would go for Catalan - which would then have to be something very close to Latin... prior to be taken over by the Romans, people would not have spoken a Latin dialect at all.

    Sweet Sci-Fi/Space battles [Spoilers]

    YouTube versions not the best quality, but one of the best fan movies ever... Battle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsnu43bjPLg Full movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4bka9Y2gJ0
  14. I think you should stick to the first naming convention in all cases - somebody might come along in the future and add a second variant, and then you'd have to rename death_horse_1_3.ogg to death_horse1_1_3. We should also consider death_horse_1_1_3.ogg as a convention - it adds 1 more character to the filename, but I think the number would be easier to see. Great to see somebody working on sounds!

    This is what the building menu looks like in Widelands - please feel free to steal Yellow numbers are Owned/Under Construction. Bottom numbers are productivity for economy buildings and stationed soldiers for military buildings.
