First, the technical Problem. Turkish has other letters as German.
Please send us a Turkish text with this other letters, i send you the email address as PM (Personal Message).
We will test this text in Cultures and send you a picture as result.

If this is ok, then we will speak about the possibilities.

Kind regards,
Tommy

Okay, we've solved the problem with the letters.

Now there is another technical thing: You can only translate the maps that were made with the internal editor. Only in these maps are the briefings in a separate file, the briefings.txt. There you can edit the text while playing and watch it right after saving the text change. You may not change the other things in the Briefings.txt. But you should write under the heading in the start briefing: Translator: Your name or nickname, so you know who has made the effort.
To the Briedings look at this documentary.

The second is a legal problem. You can only translate maps whose author has explicitly agreed. So you have to contact the author via the forum and the answer should also go to me.

Are you sure that there are enough Turkish players to make this effort worthwhile?
How many maps do you want to translate?

If 50 - 100 people already play the game, then they can read the German / English briefings.

Yes, we only have the right to publish. Authorization for translation must be obtained separately.

Kind regards,
Tommy

The Polish maps are not hosted by us. These are the Polish users' own creations.

Kind regards,
