Unfortunately these messages have more properties that would require localisation than just their text. Additionally they have coordinates and a display duration associated with them.

The coordinates should be rather easy to produce by means of an algorithm, so that shouldn't be much of a long term problem.

The duration however, for some messages is directly associated with the amount of time the videos (which currently aren't displayed) take, but for others its only associated with the "required reading time". The first of these (linked to video time) wouldn't be much of a problem. The second, however, would not be possible to localise with gettext AFAIK.

I just checked out 2.1beta4 and was pleasantly surprised that it supports different languages.

Unfortunately, I18N is incomplete. All the txt files under data/sequenceaudio/ are still English only. Therefore all briefings are still in English. Even if the *.po files are completely translated, Warzone presents a strange mixture of native language and English.

It would be really great, if you could support complete I18N.
