This page is meant to be a list of spelling mistakes in campaigns and other translatable texts in the en_US development version of the game.

Note: The house style of Wesnoth uses a good many words and constructions that are archaic, poetic, or dialectal. If you speak modern English as a second language you may incorrectly read these as errors. Please see NotSpellingMistakes for a list of things you will encounter that may look like spelling or usage errors but are not.

There is a reference to http://www.wesnoth.org/wiki/CommandMode, and it should better be http://wiki.wesnoth.org/CommandMode instead.

"Mechanical units generally have 'Mechanical' as their only trait. Since mechanical units don't really have life, drain, poison and plague has no effect upon them."

"Mechanical units generally have 'Mechanical' as their only trait." (some info was repeated, it was already in the previous string in the pot file)


"start the in-game map editor directly. If I<file> is specified, equivalent to B<-e --load>"
