Ren'Xel an app to generate translations for Ren'Py using excel



Today to my colleagues visual novel developersvisual I come to share this tool that I updated today patching some bugs. This app allows you to generate an Excel file that can be used to create a translation of  Ren'Py



What is Ren'Xel?

Ren'Xel, is an app that generates an Excel file from Ren'Py's dialogue.tab file using python technology, it is also able to generate a .rpy translation file to import translations faster. The app was intended for developers to send only the Excel and extra files such as common.rpy or images to their translators. This method is not intended to replace the native renpy system, it is just an alternative that allows a more visual translation without having to touch the .rpy file of the dialogs or screens.

How to use Ren'Xel

(Currently the app is only available for windows, however, you can compile the code from the source code.)

How to build Ren'Xel From SC


$ ./build.sh


pyinstaller --paths=lib --windowed --noconsole --clean --onefile --icon="window_icon.ico" --name="renxel" renxel.py


Important Notes:

  • Dialogue.tab does not take into account native Ren'Py screens(common.rpy), so only translatable strings that exist inside the ./game or .game/* folder will be generated.
  • You need to generate a Ren'Py translation first, then you can use this script to generate the file.
  • No delete the out folder or the folders inside out folder.
  • It is recommended to use this app only with finished projects, the app will not update already translated strings.
