Is there anyone translating the new updates for Finnish language, I have seen that in 0.981 version many translations are missing. How should I do this and is there a way to translate object names? The Sun for example is called "Aurinko" in Finnish how can I translate it? Should I change it from "Sun/Sol" to "Aurinko/Sol" or something like that and how exactly? Also do letters "å" "ä" and "ö" work in object names?

Hello, I can translate SpaceEngine to Hindi (490million speakers) and Tamil (77million speakers).  
Tamil is my mother tounge, and Hindi is what I learnt at school.   
Are there any plans for an Hindi/Tamil version? If so, I could help!

Hello, I am not the topic author but I guess I may ask you a question that might help you with the topic considering object names. What do you call the main planets like Mars, Jupiter and Neptune in Hindi? Do people use names of Hindu gods for them? If they are, I think you should check that they would not get mixed up with names of minor planets named after Hindu gods like TNO Varuna and asteroid Siva and SpaceEngine would not try to combine them.

Sorry if this is not an issue at all and the main planets have completely different type of names in Hindi.

Thats a very important question, and yes, some of them are named after mythology. Neptune is "Varun".    
Mercury to neptune goes like budh, shukr, prithwi, mangal, brihaspati sani, arun, varun.    
I'll try to search for clashes.

I'm pretty sure that happens only when the English names are the same.

You just need to pick up a copy of GUI translation file, let's say data\locale\ind-gui.cfg, rename it in hin-gui.cfg, then start translating english terms you find there.
That is if you don't need Unicode fonts, not yet supported by Space Engine.
