Update 1 (May 21)
Adriaan, our lead designer, drew me a picture for this topic. Thanks, Adriaan!
Update 2 (also May 21)
Thanks for the comments all! It's great to know that people are interested in helping us translate the game. Before I set up a system for collaborative translating, I need all the English game texts. To get al these texts, I need to dive deep into the source code. It'll take me some time to rework the code and bundle all texts, and that needs to be done first. In the meantime, I'll keep this thread updated with new information. Thanks for the support and if you feel like helping out, please respond in this thread!
Update 3 (June 6)
I approve of this great topic. It's *a lot* of work! I'll announce the date and time beforehand and provide a platform for translation. Stay tuned!
Update 4 (June 16)
I've decided against releasing in multiple batches, because I think releasing all texts as a whole increases focus and yields better and faster translation. This does mean, however, that I'll take some longer before we can start translating.
I'm considering http://crowdin.net/ as the translation platform, but I'd like to know what you think.
Update 5 (July 8)
Hey all, you should know that I'm taking a two week vacation. I feel that after our very exciting (but exhausting!) first release, I need some time to regain my strength. I'll inform you all when I need your help at translation. Thanks!
