*Attention* for the latest updates of the files please visit the RailworksAmerica.com forums

Starting with version v98.2c, RailWorks contains a localisation system making translating RailWorks and content for RailWorks quicker and easier. However, there is no place to distribute language files. Now, here it is. If you just with to add a translation to your scenario please look here, this arcticle is about how to translate the complete game.

There are two elements to localisation within RailWorks.
The first is localising the core of the game, which includes the text presented in the front end, the tools and the user interface of the game.
The second is localising the content such as routes and scenarios.

Install notes: Copy the .lan file to

<Path to Steam>\steamapps\common\railworks\Languages
