I don't know why I have got this message in French
despite the fact I have chosen English, but never mind .. that's not the point.

.
br doesn't stand for breton but for brasilian ...
and as the matter of fact, if you ever choose "breton",  you will get an error
Code: [Select]
2015-11-09 22:49:48,587 WARN  [AWT-EventQueue-0] stencyl.sw.loc.LanguagePack: Unknown locale: breton. Defaulting to English.
So even if you know that's just a silly mistake in the translation package,  you can't choose brasilian, can you ?
You have to choose portuguese : may be that's  what Brasilian do anyway ..
there is a unfair number of empty files for Brasilian ..
By the way,  how can we add languages ?
If there is no way, that's can be easily done ... Mind,  this time I am going to open a true issue :)

Brazilian is just a dialect, afaik. "br" actually does stand for breton in the ISO 639-1 language code that we use (because Java uses it).

The language packs that we ship with Stencyl may be outdated or incomplete. To edit them copy them to your workspace lang folder. You can also add new languages there.

I couldn't easily acknowledged the fact that a  language code born in 1961 was still in use..  (context of its gestation
1960 was named the African Year : 17  countries were decolonized ! )

Knowing that
    * Little Britanny is yet to be decolonized and
    * The official national language of Brazil is still portuguese
   
 why not simply to  stop shipping br/ ?

It is not a regression: nobody could have ever used it.

 To add a new language, I am not going to even try !
 I apologize for this sentence, it is not a lack of respect
 but imagine: my first thought would be for the Bretons ...
 and I already know the answer ..
Code: [Select]
DEBUG [AWT-EventQueue-0] stencyl.sw.prefs.LanguagePage: Found breton in lang/br
I am not Java literate, and  since my web errance of today I've got more reasons not to wish to try to be.
I "think" adding a new language will imply knowledge that I don't have.
Let's face the fact
I don't even know which editor to use to modify these lang files !
I am used to pot files.
Using a plain text editor is error prone. (and in its matter, I am very good )

Oups !
I was reading the lang files in a non-imaginative viewer : one screen of very indigest stuff
Code: [Select]
.sactor.setxy=set %1 to %2 for %0..sactor.setx=set x to %1
 for %0.sactor.sety=set y to %1 for %0.sactor..
but in a proper editor ..  it looks less dangerous
and even easy to translate !
I will miss the pot and po files : the translator was not told by any software   there were missing "chains"   in French ..
library.news, library.news.new, library.news.fb, library.news.twitter
I mean "missing" .. not "not translated"
to be clear, there is no
library.news=News
If you run Stencyl in a terminal, you can see the
Code: [Select]

I looked at the contents of the br folder and it seems to be Portuguese or Brazilian. It is also very incomplete and we have pt. So I agree, we can stop shipping it.

Yes, there are parts that cannot be translated (they are hardcoded in English).
