Hello
I'm new to this tool and I'm trying to figure out how use it best with the scripts I already have.

I have this Dialog script
using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using UnityEngine;

[System.Serializable]
public class Dialogue
{

    public string name;

    [TextArea(3, 10)]
    public string[] sentences;


}

I access it from this and send it to my dialog manager.
using System.Collections;
using UnityEngine.Events;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using UnityEngine;

public class DialogueTrigger : MonoBehaviour
{

    public Dialogue dialogue;
    public DialogueManager DM;
    public bool Ended = false;
    public UnityEvent m_MyEventStart;
    public  UnityEvent m_MyEvent;

    public bool Use2ndBox = false;

    private void Start()
    {
        DM = FindObjectOfType<DialogueManager>();
    }

    public void TriggerDialogue()
    {
        m_MyEventStart.Invoke();
        DM.StartDialogue(dialogue, this, Use2ndBox);
    }
    public void TriggerEvents()
    {
        m_MyEvent.Invoke();
    }
}

Each Prefab in scenes that have the DialogTrigger has different text.

Hope you can help or point me in the right direction.

Thanks
Bob

The easiest way is to replace string by LocalizedString.

LocalizedString works like a string, but when you assign it, you assign the Term Name, and when you read its value it returns the translation to the current language.

inter-illusion.com/assets/I2Localization...ocalizedStrings.html

LocalizedString locString = "Term2"; LocalizationManager.CurrentLanguage = "English"; string translation = locString; // returns the translation of Term2 to English (e.g. 'This is an example') LocalizationManager.CurrentLanguage = "Spanish"; string translation = locString; // returns the translation of Term2 to Spanish (e.g. 'Este es un ejemplo') [/code Their inspector is also shown as a popup to select the term. Hope that helps, Frank[code]
LocalizedString locString = "Term2";

LocalizationManager.CurrentLanguage = "English";
string translation = locString; // returns the translation of Term2 to English (e.g. 'This is an example')

LocalizationManager.CurrentLanguage = "Spanish";
string translation = locString; // returns the translation of Term2 to Spanish (e.g. 'Este es un ejemplo')
[/code

Their inspector is also shown as a popup to select the term.

Hope that helps,
Frank
