    OpenApoc will work with the game already in French?
    Or the translation need to be done?
    ...
    I have two versions: English and French.

    Thank you.

    :)

    Hi, and welcome.

    Yes, we'd need a translation. If the game already has a French translation, it might be a simple case of extracting the French text, but that might be easier said then done.

    Worst case, if you (or somebody else with the French version) could just copy the French strings out by hand, that'd be great :)

    I know how to translate a Mod with OpenXcom, but I have no experience with OpenApoc. There are special characters in French, like "?" or "?" (UTF-8 needed).
    We encode special XML characters? (< > & ' "), or it's not necessary?
    I'm willing to copy and paste what I have, just tell me how to create a file or do you have one with all the English strings included?

    You will need to make sure your strings are properly XML encoded (so "<" becomes "&gt;"), and save in UTF-8; otherwise you should be fine
    The two files you need to modify are here
