- Take care if you use an automatic translation tool such as google translator or similar to translate the English text file into your language. Such tools will break the format of the language file and create wrong translations of the English text. In such a case, after the automatic translation, you should compare each translated line with the original English text and check whether the automatic translation was carried out correctly and adjust the translation if necessary.
