How do I make a 3 languages dictionary with some feature

  • Hello everyone. please i need to know how to make a trilangue dictionary with construct2 . with some features like instant search, history, word builder and sharing, text to speech, favourites and work offline then save words? and thank you in advanced.

    also i have another question. what the difference between create a book with background text objects, or make background contain already all text and paragraph by photoshop or any other tool. then add it to construct 2 as sprite ?

  • This is a very broad question and you didn't provide much information about your game.

    You can keep three copies of each key with language suffix, for example:

    Key="book_en"

    Key="book_fr"

    Key="book_it"

    Or you can store all three values in one key:

    Key="book"

    Data="en:book,fr:livre,it:libro"

    Then you'll need a function that will parse this string and return the right value for each language.

    As for the second question, it's better to use smaller sprites, tiled backgrounds and text objects for text. If you make each page as a big sprite, it will use a lot of memory!
