Summary0002815: Support FM short descriptions in other languages
DescriptionIn DarkMod/Missions/ModInfo.cpp around line 215, TDM looks for the string "Description:".

Here we should also parse (and ignore) any string that looks like "Description LanguageNameHere:" and store it. Then when the mod info is requested, return the proper language version, or fall back to English.

This also means this file must be parsed in UTF-8 and the text be converted to either ISO-8859-1 or Windows 1251, depending on language.

Alternatively, we could simple look for a file "darkmod_LANGUAGE.txt" instead, that would us also allow to translate the title (or author) of the FM.
TagsNo tags attached.

Entering the description as "#str_21000" and then supplying the different translations in strings/fm/LANGUAGE.lang files should also work. Test this.

This has been fixed by check-ins 0004935 and 0004942. TDM now loads FM specific translations (from files like strings/fm/english.lang) and can handle FM titles/descriptions in darkmod.txt like:

Title: #str_20000
Description: #str_20001

The list of available-to-play missions is also properly translated, and potential articles like "The " are removed across languages after the translation.
