|WHAT IS POLYGLOT|
|Thank you for checking out Polyglot. Start localizing your game, using this human translated resource for the basics. After getting the groundwork done, it is easier to improve and expand with professional translation services. Polyglot aims to be a solid launchpad for indiedevs to start localizing their games, starting with Menus and Settings. No complex phrases, no word combining, only structures like Health : 3 are supported.|

|HOW TO USE THIS DOC|
|You can copy-paste strings from this doc into your game, but it is preferable to download this doc and parse through it in your game code.|
"Download As" this document as a CSV/TSV/XLS file and integrate that into your game. You can also convert it to XML with OpenOffice or Excel after downloading it.
NOTE: When you start integrating this file into your game you might want to remove this "About" tab and the "Translator FAQ" tab, BUT ONLY AFTER DOWNLOADING THE FILE!
|When you want to display a given string in-game, find it using the STRING ID in the leftmost column and then offsetting to the right X number of times. If your user switches languages then you'll still search for the same STRING ID, but with a different offset.|
|Be warned that some languages might treat gender and singular/plural differently. By default most strings are masculine & singular ("actor"), other genders/numbers ("actresses") will be created separately.|
|The master sheet and various conversion and engine tools will be arriving on GitHub soon.|
|Thirdparty Tools for using the sheets should be appearing soon!|
|EDITING IS PERFORMED ON ANOTHER SHEET : HERE IS THE LINK|
|ANYBODY CAN COMMENT : Optimally the comment should be just the word and nothing else. If it is a correction, you may explain it more if you want to. Each page has a space at the bottom for adding questions not regarding a specific word. Comments are not meant to stay on the document, but be resolved as fast as possible.|
|BECOME A CONTRIBUTOR: Expansion packs : top right request permissions. Core : mail karmakallio_at_gmail.com. You'll need a Google Account. Most often this is a Gmail address, but you can also create a Google account using an existing third-party email. Include your name and language.|
