If you are doing translation work - please check this page regularly.
We do not want you to waste effort doing what someone else is doing.

This page is for those helping Robin and each other, with translation into Russian.

Work in Progress

Robin has set up this page to avoid duplication of work.

He is grateful for the good work done by Imants Tukleris and Janis Vjaters in translation of the WAV sounds and TRANSLAT.TXT file, included in the downloads below.

Work is still in progress, but some of you may wish to help us with testing, etc. The text files need the Cyrillic fonts to be available. GPSS.HLP has not yet been edited and translated.

On 13 Nov 98 the Instrument Panel image was translated.

How to test GPSS speaking Russian

The simple way to test GPSS speaking Russian is as follows:

  1. create a directory c:\Russian
  2. load RUSSTRAN.EXE and RUSSTRA2.EXE into c:\russian and run them to extract the files.
  3. copy LANGUAGE.CFG to c:\gpss04
LANGUAGE.CFG in c:\gpss04 will make GPSS.EXE in \gpss04 use c:\Russian WAV files, and TRANSLAT.TXT to translate text in the white speech bar.

Translation Downloads

Here is what we have so far:

DOWNLOAD RUSSTRAN.EXE from alternative Site (1,432,869 bytes)

DOWNLOAD RUSSTRA2.EXE from alternative Site (85,765 bytes)

RUSSTRAN.EXE would have been too big to fit onto one floppy disk, so the v$*.wav sounds were put on the second EXE download. An English copy of CONTROLS.CFG and .ICO files was also included to avoid a 'file not found' error if you use the icon controls. A translated CONTROLS.CFG is needed ???
