Hi mates,

{ I'm not sure if this post is in the right place, as I'm just a noob in this forum. If this post is not supposed to be posted here, then, Moderators and mates, plz, guide me next time }

As you can see, I'm trying to translate the interface of a custom map of mine. Most of the texts are fine, I can translate them because I can find them in the Advanced Interface texts.

However, there are several texts that I cannot find in there, and as a result, I cannot edit them. The "Delete" and "Cancel" text fields in the screenshot I attached are just 2 examples. There are still several others.

I wonder if there is a way to find all of the text fields and edit them so that I can translate my custom map thoroughly?

(It's kinda annoying when you have most of your work done but have to leave it incomplete)

Regards.

Actually, we won't find all the text fields with the Advanced Interface option in WE. I've found out that some of the text fields are in the core of the game and the only way to translate them is to tap into the *.mpq files like war3, war3x, war3xlocal, and war3patch... to extract and edit the GlobalStrings files, then replace the GlobalStrings files in those *.mpq files with the translated ones...
