Cool Guy Monkey Island SE translation tool

This tool is intended to ease the task of translating the Monkey Island SE.

Requirements:
-Monkey Island SE (got mine from Steam)
-Java 1.5+ (latest Java 6 recommended)

HowTo:
-copy the following 3 files to a new directory:
-- "misetran.jar" (download link at the end of this post)
-- "speech.info" from "C:\Program files\Steam\steamapps\common\the secret of monkey island special edition\audio" or similar
-- "uiText.info" from "C:\Program files\Steam\steamapps\common\the secret of monkey island special edition\localization" or similar
-run the following command:
java -jar misetran.jar speech.info uiText.info
(add paths where necessary)

-all changes are saved immediately, so you can close the tool at any time
-to test your (partial) translation copy the 2 files back overwriting the ones in the MI-SE subdirectories (always keep backups!!!) and play the game with the first non-English language selected

the translator keeps the English text, stores your translation in place of the first non-English language and uses the other languages to store it's data

You can copy your translation over any language of an existing speech.info or uiText.info using the following command:
java -cp misetran.jar Copy inFile outFile inLang outLang type
inFile: the file to copy a translation from
outFile: the file to copy a translation to
inLang: number of the language to copy from the source file (0 = english, 1-4 = the 4 translations [1 = your translation])
outLang: number of the language to overwrite in the target file (0 = English, 1-4 = the 4 translations]) [not sure if overwriting English is a good idea]
type: "speech" or "uitext" (if this is wrong the target file will be corrupted. keep backups)

NOTE:
this tool is released for free, but also AS IS. the translator has only been tested roughly. the copy tool is untested.
