Hello doctor_sniff,

Welcome to the forums.:)

Including the links, these are the pages that inform about translations: http://wiki.wesnoth.org/WesCamp and http://wiki.wesnoth.org/WesnothTranslationsHowTo
In the most of languages, there is a person who takes care of each of them, but it seems there is no Farsi here (yet): http://wiki.wesnoth.org/WesnothTranslations
So you should probably contact with Espreon whose mail address is on a link I posted. Or you can send him a PM (private message). He is actually a very busy person for us, so I am not sure how soon he can reply you, though (you may need a patience).

Right now Espreon is on vacations. To start a new translation I need to know some things:
1) Do you need a special font or do things work with DejaVu Sans? If you need a special font you will have to find a suitable one first.
2) What is the locale code for Farsi? For traditional Chinese it is zh_TW ('zh' as language, 'TW' as country). Please have a look at these files to get an idea what will be required: https://github.com/wesnoth/wesnoth-old/ ... /zh_TW.cfg The file is a plain textfile created in UTF-8.

Once I have this information from you I can generate the po files so that you can start translating. For this you just follow the info provided under the links SkyOne mentioned.

I’m back.

Let’s call it Persian.

I guess we’d have it be “fa_IR” and have “fa_AF” be an alternative (Iranian Persian and Afghan Persian apparently aren’t that different, but I don’t know much about Persian, so I’m mostly relying on Wikipedia) while keeping Tajik (tg_TJ) separate, especially since Tajik uses Cyrillic rather than the Arabic-derived Persian script.
