Where are these sound files in different languages and versions located, and can I remove them without breaking something? I suppose they will be reinstalled with each update. Already in the thread are mentions of Spanish, Italian and Swedish being worked on in addition to English and German - and male and female versions. I don't want all these wave files on my device, no matter how compressed they are. I don't even know that I would utilise these voice prompts at all, but if I did it would be in English and that's it.

Don't take this as an attack, but I detest when translations are bundled with main packages. They should be offered separately for those who need them - especially when we're talking sound recordings and not text. So my suggestion is that instead of adding these recordings in, you make a separate package; "Laufhelden - Additional Voice Language Support" or something.

You can find those files on your device in /usr/share/harbour-laufhelden/qml and from there in the subfolders audio/, units/, headers/ and numbers/.
Your suggestion makes a lot of sense. Problem is only it needs to be done and my time and resources as a developer are limited. If you are into developing, you can always make a pull request and contribute to the app.

You need an account on github. And then you can fork the app and add a new language file: harbour-laufhelden-it.ts to the folder /translations.
Then you do your translation in that file. Afterwards you create a pull request.
