    as someone who doesn't have access to the source code for YT or GMCL, I don't know if these gamemodes actually do have language support implemented, but I assume they don't since the in-game text doesn't respect any language set by the gmod_language console variable

    what is the likelihood of implementing language localization? and I ask this not to directly support a certain language, but implementing support for doing so

    for instance you can use the language library to define phrases with just the English translations at first, and have the community contribute translations over time (a little harder with a closed source project like YT and GMCL, but still)

    P.S I have a simple patch to the language library that makes it easier to translate phrases automatically if you're interested

    thanks for taking the time to read this :)

    This is actually something that I'd like to see at some point for all of our projects.
