Default Race-specific texts

What I would really like to see in Pandora: all texts that are specific to our own missions, AL plugins and so on, should be race-specific. For each race different texts are present, for example:
Argon: We need an escort for our freighter that travels from station A to station B. You will get X credits for reward.
Split: Need fighter.You protect freighter. Fly from station A to B. You get X credits. (I don't know how Split speak in the english version. In German, they are almost incapable to speak complete sentences.)

This is something, I can't do alone, because it will be much work. So I'd need some more people that adjust the texts to the different races.
What do you think?

If you like the idea too, we need a procedure.
My proposal is:
  1. First we need the "raw forms" of the texts. This is the task of the scripter.
  2. These raw forms must then be distributed and translated into the appropriate "languages".
  3. The individual translations must be collected and integrated in a t-file.

However, how do we make this? Does anybody know the syntax of t-files?
How do we distribute the "raw forms"? Who makes which race? Should the texts in BBS be race-specific, too? And if they should, all texts or just specific ones? Because in the black board you see both mission offers (which are made by the owners of a station, i.e. race-specific), and news texts - e.g. about Sector 21 terrorist or messages from any exciting fights, e.g. news of the border wars: "Heavy losses by a xenon attac"

That's a really good idea!
Sorry but I don't know anything about scripting and "t" files, so sorry.

Once the text finish I can try to translate it in french!

Also I would really see teladis :
We need you to protect our profitssss! Fly from station A to station B for X creditssss! You'll get a part of our profitsss if successs!

Also boron : We have a peaceful transport to do. Can you handle this please? You will be paid for the help you provided to our kingdom!

You don't need to know anything about scripting or t-files. The main point is, it's a lot of work if we do it. The scripting part will already be done, when the 'basic' text will be available. And the t-file may be very special, and will be done by the team. It's the content and the wording, where we need help.
