  • Uppercase and lowercase characters should map to the same set of characters. For example: Either "a" should map to "e", or "A" should map to "M". "b" should map to "po", or "B" should map to "I", and so on.
  • The left side is what gets translated, while the right side is the translation. Furthermore, spaces are word delimiters, so no translations can be made for multiple-word combinations.
    • Rows 53, 54, 57, 58, 59, and 60 are right out.
    • Rows 55 and 56 could be reformulated as "shapeshifter cheznitznia" and "zombies dierneszkits".
    • "Dierneszkits" is possibly a singular, so "zombie". I'm guessing "zombies" would be "dierneszkitsi".
  • With the exception of the uppercase cipher (^A, ^B, etc.), dictionary entries cannot contain uppercase letters. You could do "shapeshifter Cheznitznia" (not that I'd agree with that decision in this context), but "Shapeshifter Cheznitznia" will never be picked up by the translator.
I consider for 2.0 version:

Entries 15-16 and 19-20 are still inconsistent, but since I'll have to manually reformat it into a 2DA file anyway, I guess it's close enough to understand what you intended. :lol: I also think 53-54 don't need capitalization, but it's a minor cosmetic tweak.

I'll have to do some more research to make sure I know all the places a new language needs to go, get a language description out of Rhifox (I need her to give me one for Midani, anyway!), and make sure it's actually okay to add (which it probably is, given Vale's earlier posts)... but if all goes well, it should probably go live with the next HAK patch.

The cipher and dictionary have been committed to the HAK repository this morning, but just so you know, this doesn't mean the language will be available just yet. There's a few more things that need to be done before it's ready for use. One or two patches from now, though, it should become available for selection.
