Translating your zümo Language yourself

This is correct. All American English is programmed into the firmware. This is even true for the Voices (TTS and normal). And the same for Mapsource.

Delete all voices and text files and the zümo still functions with its build-in American English. Bring them back with the WebUpdater.

Now there is a list of American English names, its in the Tag names in the text files. So if you would like to change your American English in the zümo, take the British_English.gtt file and change all your needed tags. And select the British_English file in your Language settings.

But there are some hidden tags like the Interstates or Autobahn tags. With an Hex editor every tag can be found in the firmware file. Found tags can included in the language text file without a problem. Only take care that names cannot be too long.

Add these to your language .gtt file and make your own translations. Tags are alphabetically listed in the language file, but its no must. Be sure that a tag is only mentioned 1 time, dunno what happens when it is inserted double, failure of loading, or the second one is ignored.
