Well, the strings were made separate precisely so that the exact mark-up for whispers and thinking-to-oneself messages wouldn't need to be included in the strings themselves, but could be defined in one centralized location; the ASIDE macro in data/core/macros/interface-utils.cfg, in this case.

So, I'd think that what we need is to make the strings in those macros translatable so translators could vary the exact formatting somewhat (although of course then they'd need to make sure all affected strings in all campaigns conform to that choice).

In the Eastern Invasion campaign, in the sixth scenario (Two Paths), at the beginning there is a dialog where some characters eventually say something with the following structure (ignore content):

“I am saying something here anyone can hear. (Now I am saying something to myself, thinking.)”

What we translators get is the following two translatable strings:
“I am saying something here anyone can hear. ”
“Now I am saying something to myself, thinking.”

That is, we translator see it as: “<translatable content>(<translatable content>)”. Those parentheses are not translatable, neither is the end of the string (you can not write anything after the final parentheses).

The thing is, in Galician, I would write this like:

“I am saying something here anyone can hear (now I am saying something to myself, thinking).”

This is currently impossible.

So I would like these cases (there are two of them, from the undead lider and the orc one) to become like this instead:

“I am saying something here anyone can hear. <i>(Now I am saying something to myself, thinking.)</i>”

All translatable at once, in a single string.
