Version 4.0 of Chess for Android focuses on localization and internationalization. All user facing text (except the chess notation and engine messages) has been translated into the following languages.
  • English (the default)
  • Dutch (translated myself)
  • German (many thanks to Philip Stutz)
  • Hebrew (many thanks to Haran Talmon)
  • Polish (many thanks to Michal Kaczmarek)
  • Spanish (many thanks to Krizia Lopez)
  • Swedish (many thanks to Anton Hansson)
If you spot any mistakes, if you would like to see support for other languages or, even better, if you would like to help with further localization, please drop me a private note.

The following languages are now supported:

* Afrikaans (af)
* Chinese (zh)
* Dutch (nl)
* English (en)
* French (fr)
* German (de)
* Hebrew (iw)
* Italian (it)
* Polish (pl)
* Portuguese (pt-br)
* Russian (ru)
* Spanish (es)
* Swedish (sv)
* Turkish (tr)

Many thanks to my translation team: Vinícius Angiolucci, Lucas Braesch, A.N. Bürümcekci, Panna Chowdhury, Anton Hansson, Arnar Mar Hrafnkelsson, Michal Kaczmarek, Dara Koper, Morgan Lombard, Krizia Lopez, Dennis Prochko, Philip Stutz, Haran Talmon, Ted Wong, and last but certainly not least C.R. Zamana!

Chess for Android has very inadequate time controls ...You need to implement all sorts of tournament and increment time controls .Also the default engine is very weak ....I don't recall playing against something this weak ever on a modern platform.......

Thanks for your feedback. The built-in engine is supposed to be fun for the beginning chess player. More advanced UCI and XBoard engines can be imported for stronger play.

And yes, time controls other than fixed time per move have been on my todo list for a very long time now.... Smile
