I've added two translations that I expected to be strings that crash MegaGlest when you choose the Dutch language ( Main Language ) file.

The translations are:
0.8 would be in the Netherlands 0,8 and 4.0 would be 4,0.
For, taken out of the language file:
FONT_SCALE_SIZE=0.8
FONT_SCALE_CENTERH_FACTOR=4.0

In transifex it's not clear that these values aren't strings but configuration values.

I think the language data package should be fixed, changing 4,0 to 4.0 and 0,8 to 0.8 in megaglest/data/lang/dutch.lng

    As it crashes MegaGlest when the Dutch language has been chosen.

    By the way I've corrected the error in the Dutch Main language file on transifex

    Thanks for your report. This was previously discussed here...

    "Dutch, Greek, Italian localizations of MegaGlest 3.7.0 may fail with an error"
    http://glest.org/glest_board/index.php?topic=8725.0

    ...and fixed for the latest stable release, v3.7.1.

    We failed to explain what these values are about so translators could not know what they're doing there when editing these. We will need to improve this for next release. We will also need translators to actually test their translations as explained at http://translate.megaglest.org , which would also rule out such errors.
