Greetings from China
« on: March 23, 2012, 06:49:48 am »

Hi, everyone!
I am a python programmer, and I come from China.
I stress my location because I find that the FIFE supports Chinese language ( unicode characters) very well, excitingly.
I have been searching for such a good game framework for long time.
Maybe I can contribute to the localization of Chinese.

Heya nifabric and welcome!

As prock mentioned, we always love to include new translations in Unknown Horizons. There already is a Japanese translation project, extending this to also support Chinese would be awesome.
The font we use for CJKV languages is Arphic UMing (and deciding on the font was actually the hardest part in supporting non-ASCII languages, as you mentioned FIFE just works).

If you're interested in contributing, check our online translation server pootle, especially the zh_CN project. You're also invited to join our IRC channel #unknown-horizons and chat with a lot of other developers.

All the best,
