Summary0003193: $label in #Briefing in mission files should automatically create an XSTR
DescriptionEven without the use of subtitles and individual hud gauges, you can not translate a, more classic, mission completely with the help of the tstrings.tbl, because the labels for the briefing symbols will not be transferred into the tstrings.tbl automatically.
You have to set the xstr-entry manually in the mission file or you have to translate the symbols directly with FRED2, which is an easier task, but needs a language-specific mission file again, that is not in the purpose of the tstrings.tbl at all.
TagsNo tags attached.

To clarify, you want that FRED saves the briefing label in the XSTR format but it doesn't do that at the moment?

Yes exactly.

Freespace uses some predefined entrys in the localize.cpp that translates labels automatically. But these are only those from the main campaign.

All other new label names from custom missions remain untranslated and have to be changed within the .fs2 file itself.

Ok, that should be relatively simple. I found the code which writes the label text to the mission file and it uses the wrong function which doesn't output the XSTR syntax so it should be relatively easy to fix.
