You should use PMs for that.
But I'm sure some will be happy to see this game in more languages.

Not much for a game I guess.

A bit like this:

// tutorial
"Instructions");
"VOLUME POWER UP");
"Increases music volume and visual feedback, adding more power to your weapons.");
"WEAPON POWER UP");
"Powers up your weapons to fire multiple streams.");
"SUPER BOMB");
"Super Bombs send out a blast wave that destroys anything nearby.");
"SCORE MULTIPLIER");
"Increases your score multiplier by 1.");
"BEAT HAZARD ENGAGED");
"When Volume and Weapon power are maxed, you will become a Beat Hazard!");

"NEXT PAGE");

"Page 1/3 - Controls");
"Page 2/3 - Game Modes");
"NORMAL PLAY");
"One music track equals one game. Can you survive till the end?");
"Your weapons are linked to the music, the more intense the music, the more bullets you fire!");
"However, the enemies are linked to the music too! As the energy of the music increases, so will the number of bad guys.");
"DARE DEVIL: Stop firing for 5 seconds to increase your score Multiplier.");
"SURVIVOR: For every 30 seconds you survive you will receive a bonus for your Multiplier.");

"SURVIVAL MODE");
"In Survival mode you play through as many songs as possible.");
"Choose a start song and get shooting. When the song ends the next song in the list will start automatically.");
"In Survival mode your Multiplier will drop every few seconds, so keep collecting those pickups!");

Where is the file, I can take this as a long/mid term project if you wish. I will do it when I feel like it, like I did with FL. I did the FL without even asking Sakari-Indie first though Or I asked that is there a translation under project but thats it. But if you tell me where the file is hidden/send it to me, I can take a look at it.

How about a gimmick l33t or Pig-Latin translation? An option to change the translation?

I can translate the game into Hebrew, but it's a bit problematic as it's written Right to Left instead of Left to Right.
