Heroes is seeking for translators.

Is there some inactive people out there willing to help?
Heroes has been gettextized and is seeking for translators.

Details:

Heroes is a game like Nibbles, but with some graphical improvements and new games features. You can see some screenshots on the web pages http://heroes.sourceforge.net/

The latest development version (0.8b) has all the machinery needed for internationalization, and ship with English and French messages. If you are interested in providing translated messages for your own language, don't hesitate one nanosecond and join the heroes-discuss mailing list. People with some artistic skills are also welcome because the fonts used in the game to display the messages lack accentuated characters: unless they are extended, this will become annoying for most languages.
