Translating French only Games into English
« on: 12:00, 10 August 13 »
Translating French only Games into English, probably asked this before, but is it remotely possible?
Or would it be easier to learn French?

It's probably easier to learn Z80 machine code to rewrite the games in English than it is to learn French. ;D

Translating from French to English (or Deutsch or Spanish) would not be very difficult as there are a lot of CPC users who are French and who are able to write English (Engrish for people like me but a native english speaker could check after first pass)
The real problem is more to adapt some programs to English syntax as their syntaxic analyser match with French syntax.
