Red9 Language Packs!

Wow, it's been a while since I posted up, hopefully over the next few months we'll be showing a lot more of what we've been up to both with the pro-pack and the consultancy business. We we're recently involved in a number of TV commercials which we should be able to show very soon, one a full performance facial setup for a Toyota commercial so watch this space!

In the mean time, I wanted to talk about language packs and how much interest there may be out there for us shipping Red9 StudioPack in multiple languages?

We were talking to some Chinese clients earlier today and the topic came up again so, I've been busy switching all the menu text over to a mapper file that we can easily replace and get translated. It's basically just a Python module with all the text in it that we import on boot, all we'd have to do to change the language is change the binding.

So, who out there would like to see this, and if so, what languages, would you be interested in helping us translate the mapping file?
