The motto of Freeciv "'Cause civilization(s) should be free!"
contains a little trick which only works in the English
language: Civilization *and* civilizations should be free!
Since the motto translated badly into the different languages
(some emphasize the label Civilization others translate the word
civilizations and some keep the motto untouched ¹) and the
realtime rendered text looks ugly I wonder if the motto should
not be part of the intro pixmap.
This would look much better and it would *keep the message*
- which is not translatable in my opinion - untouched.
¹) If you want to review it enter this:
$ for i in po/*.po; do echo -e \\n$i; \
> sed -e '/Cause civilization should be free!/!d' -e n $i \
