i added a graphical text representation to the translation tool to help the translator identify the parts they should translate and which not.
Green = translate-able
Red = do not translate, integrate into text: those are formatting strings
Blue = spaces
also, bonus side effect: people cannot copy+paste into a bad translator anymore.
UPDATE: also added ingame previews with the Cyberbit font. (see attached examples)

great! thanks everyone!
(one red dot means one or more visits)
see interactive version here
RoR is now 100% translate-able. Not as previously just the configurator, but the whole game, settings, menus, etc. Basically any strings you can see as a user are now translate-able.
The Config format and Log files will stay in English, so we could provide support
see below for some examples using the polish language.

we finally removed this "version.txt" hack and now have proper windows file versioning. Look yourself: right click on RoR.exe (or any other RoR shipped .exe) and select "Details":
this feature is available with the just-released "0.38.37" version: Changelog#0.38.37
use the updater to get it
UPDATE: new installer ready as well: files/rigsofrods/0.38/RoR-Setup-0.38.37.exe/download

some little recap after the 0.38 release 10 days ago:
we got 23.543 downloads of 0.38.33 so far (link) seems we got no really bad bugs, just the usual isolated problems that are specific to certain hardware, computers or people
so all in all I'm very happy that this went so smooth this time
looking forward to fix more bugs and add more features.
PS: someone finally discovered my easter egg
forum-wise: we even got a random thank you post, uncommon but shows that are nice people out there
also, we have a new italian sub-board: http://www.rigsofrods.com/forums/191-Italiano
i need a good looking loading screen image with some nice picture in high res (1280x1024 or such) and with the RoR font (alba) and logo in the bottom left and "loading" text in the bottom right
UPDATE: attached how it looks like atm. seems we also need two versions of the image: one for 4:3 and one for widescreen?

actually, its very simple, click on the text box (with "Search ..." in it) at the top or press "/" key on your keyboard to start searching.
In the normal mode it searches:
vehicle namefilenamesdescriptionsauthors (names and email addresses)
But there is also an advanced mode
its syntax is like google search "<type>:keyword"
for example to search mods by dega you could use: author:dega
also works right now for searching hash and guids: guid:fa13...
or for the filename only: file:foo.zip
or for a specific wheel configuration: wheels:6x4
