Hello @Beise and welcome to the forums.

Thank you for your interest in helping with the game documentation translation.

That would be great however Edgewall Trac doesn't support page languages yet, see https://trac.edgewall.org/ticket/1513, therefore I'm not sure how you can proceed with that. There is no manual yet, a proposal for an auto generated LaTeX one was submitted, but I never resumed the work on it. https://trac.wildfiregames.com/ticket/1840

Let me know If I can help you more,

Best regards,

Hi Stan,

thanks for your answer.

Please take a look at https://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/TranslationDe/WikiFormatting.

It seems to be more a problem of design or formatting. I like wikis, so i think there is no problem,

but at least, you say or now.

Best regards,

Hi Stan,

you're right.
I am about this address:
https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki, come there.
To the question, with which one begins:
I would put all wiki pages in a directory, e.g. "Translation_DE", copy and start the translation. Finally, the link or overview pages.
This has the advantage that nobody clicks on dead links.

Or you start with the pages that are the most used, such as short info, overviews, etc., as can be found in the wiki above. Also missing on the main page is the link to the wiki (the wikis)

Personally, I would start with pages that offer a thematically quick overview

best regards

I'm not sure I understand what you need after that!

please give also https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/Localization, to translate. After that i want  do the same,

as you can see here: https://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/TranslationDe/WikiFormatting  "Andere Sprachen", this comes from

https://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/WikiMacros, section "TranslatedPages".
