google translate bad. Your sentences make no sence at all.

Other languages are unimportant.

FGFG Google buon lavoro per l'italiano? Spero di sì, e questo è così fresco. Sembra che farebbe bene. aha! Mi piace questo! It's so awesome!

Although, I don't think awesome is correct.
FGFG what does that actually say above? Is it correct?

Weird... This is the translation when i put what is above into it...

Google FGFG good job for Italian? I hope so, and this is so cool. It seems that would be well. aha! I like this! It's so awesome!

REAL TRANSLATION: FGFG, Google good job for Italian? I hope so, and this is so cool. It seems that this would be good. haha! I like this! It's so awesome!

Italics above mean i don't really know what I put in.
Undelined means I don't think i put that in, but did to make sense.

Something is correct, but most of the sentences are wrong. We need a human translator for Universe Sandbox.

One thing I like note:
Please just don't force the user to have US displayed in his native language.

Technically, it can mean any translation, we just turned it in to a broader topic, and since I am going of topic, I'll leave this to you guys.

Yes, if we couldn't read I guess we wouldn't be talking about translations at all...
It would just feel too strange to create one topic for each translation, so, I posted in here to offer my help for a Danish translation.
Ok, I deleted it before, but, I'd gladly translate Universe Sandbox into Danish.

Altough this subject is about German , translation in other languages were great !
Gives a new dimension to the software
Maybe Dan can provide a list of items he wants to be translated in other languages ?
Each of us could work on the list then .

My mother tongue is flemish .

This is the plan. I've already got basic support for being able to change languages of the interface on-the-fly (meaning that you can switch between languages in Universe Sandbox without restarting).

I honestly hadn't considered on-the-fly multi-language support for the names of bodies. I'm going to have to think about that.

Either way... Eventually I will be able to provide a text file with a list of all the text used in Universe Sandbox in English (and with notes on its context) and so it will be fairly straightforward for someone can go through and translate each text string into another language.

It's really encouraging that so many people wants to help. Although it will probably be a few months before I have the text files in a final enough version for translation. Turns out making good software is a really slow process. :)
