There's a few files you'd edit, each supply the text for a different part of the game.

esf\titles.txt has a lot of information you'd edit, just make sure you edit it right:
titles.txt said:
//team menu

Title_SelectYourTeam    //don't touch this identifier
{
Choose your side          //this is what you change, it's the text that appears ingame
}
All of the entries in that file are stored the same, just edit what's in the brackets.

esf\commandmenu.txt is, well, the command menu. It's used for the bots. Edit what's in the double quotes.

The character descriptions (what shows up on the "choose your class" VGUI when you mouse-over each character) are stored in esf\classes. Each character's information is in a separate file, editing those are pretty self-explanatory.


There's probably some other files, but that's all I see right now. titles.txt is the big one.

Bboy_Budokai, You realy think I would be messing up with ESF files if I did'nt even know the game?

plus: these translations Aren't realy important for playing the game are they?!

I just thought it would be nice to have the game translated, feels nice to have a game in your own lang...

Anyeone have an idea what can I do?

I'd use notepad and open up every bot file you see. It could contain the words that the bots say or something that would edit your language of the bots.

Can't you just install the hebrew fonts inside the ESF directory and some simple command to force to use it? In Half-life 2 I know you can.
