Summary0002779: Translate the menu and HUD into different languages
DescriptionBoth the menu and the HUD are only available in English. Supporting switching to other languages will make it easier to use for people in other languages. We need:

* Slimming down english.lang (0002698) so we don't have to translate all the unused D3 strings
* Add a way to keep all the translations together, so that the translations and the english master copy do not get out of sync, plus a way to generate the different .lang files from that (0002781)
* a way to switch the language in the menu (0002782)
* add support for Umlauts like 'Ä' in the menu font (0002778)
* Find a way to translate the different graphical buttons that we unfortunately have in the menu (or find a way to replace them by text)
Additional InformationThis is the master bug that tracks progress of the individual steps in translation the menus and the HUD. Fan missions are not affected by this.
TagsNo tags attached.

Apart from the font issue, the menu texts-as-graphics issue, and the missing translations, baisc translation support works now.

A lot of sub-issues have already been cared for, among these are:

* support for translatable objectives
* support for translatable readables
* FM specific dictionaries (so the I18N is sep. from the main PK4 and can be updated more easily)
* a script to produce the foo_i18n.pk4 files automatically and match different translations, too
* the bitmaps have been converted to texts
* the non-working choiceDefs have been converted, and the 0xFF font-bug has been worked around

The main issues (showstopper bugs for a release) are now only:

* automatic downloading of _i18n.pk4 files
* adding umlauts to the menu/readable fonts
* adding more russian fonts

Status report:

* The russian fonts are complete, except a few characters for Mason.
* _l18n.pk4 files are automatically downloaded, the only problem is that an update of such a file also triggers a redownload of the full mission PK4 (takes time and wastes bandwitdh)

Things still to do:

* some code fixes to the font loader/display (fallback to english font, handle fonts where we only have one size (so we don't need to copy 12 and 24 point sizes)
* add Umlauts to all the western font sets
* add code support for characters 0x7F .. 0x9F

The fallback to load other sizes when 12, 24 or 48 are not there yet is implemented.

The other issues are still outstanding and won't make it into v1.08.
