Translation Guide?

posted by Krow on 06:07 PM June 1st, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
Is there any guide on how to translate slashcode (interface, at least the one seen by the users) to some other language?

Is the slashcode written so that can be easily translated to some other languages (UTF-8 not required) ?

Thanks!
