"String-table" container

The "String-table" container is a top-level config.txt file entry that is used to provide localization support, an euphemism meaning multilingual translations for international markets and customers. The most common location to see and find a string-table is in layout or route map config.txt files, which can be viewed from content manager using the view config.txt tool. Industry names, trackmarks and other labels added to the map manually including such items as renamed junctions will be listed in a Map string table.

  • In versions previous to TS2009 SP2 inclusive, all rolling stock used in any session on the route was listed in the map's string table.
  • From the point where layer technologies were introduced in TS2010 SP0 (also TS2009 SP3) rolling stock and industry string tables might instead be located in the session config.txt file, depending upon the route-builder/session writer's preferences and use of layers.

The 'string-table' container (no suffix) always supplies English string data. Whenever the 'string-table' container is supplied, then and only then it is also legal to provide equivalent localized variants (translated text) for one or more locales (eg. 'string-table-de'). It is not legal to provide a localized variant without the base English form (ie. 'string-table-de' without 'string-table'), nor is it legal to provide a localized variant instead of the English form (ie. a 'string-table' which actually contains non-English text.)
