Issue description
Item 460 imported from sourceforge.net tracker on 2013-01-28 18:21:29

Some texts in game is not gettexted. Attached patch fix few of them ("c" as "credits" should be translatable I think). There are some ungettexted strings in src/game/g_client.c but lot's of them are ok. Is it wittingly?

The second problem is font or print routine. Extended characters (e.g. czech) are wrong in battlescape messages and in console too (no UTF8 support at all?).

Ok, ordinal user will never look into console, but the same problem is in 3D view of mission. See attached screenshot. The text in red ellipse is czech translation of "Can't perform action - not enough TUs!". Green chars are broken, e.g. first should be "eacute". I think this is serious problem of translation :(. Other texts (bottom left) are ok. File Added: ufo00.jpg
