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. Note that the mainline campaigns are now using correct typography, including sexed quotes and en and em dashes. These will appear as three byte sequences if you are not using a viewer that supports UTF-8.

Mainline Campaigns

An Orcish Incursion

Dead Water

Delfador’s Memoirs

Descent into Darkness

Eastern Invasion

Heir to the Throne


Scenario 7: The Hunters; Baldras says "If the noble lord of Elensefar is unwilling to resist the Queen, how should I ever expect to?" Should be "...who should I ever expect to?", shouldn't it?

The first sentence is grammatically correct and probably the intent of the author. RJaguar3 (talk) 05:27, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

Northern Rebirth

Sceptre of Fire

Son of the Black Eye

I'm using 1.12.0 as a reason to replay this campaign for the first time since 1.4. Not sure if I missed it previously or if I just ignored it but I'm noticing a lot of then-vs-than spelling mistakes in the dialogue. I understand it's an easy mistake to make, but Wesnoth strives to be as polished and professional in appearance as possible, no? That being the case, I hope the errors can be corrected for the next release (I can volunteer to do a proof-read if necessary, and not just for this campaign).

Al’Brock in Giving Some Back: 'Easier said then done, Chief.'

Darstang in The Dwarvish Stand: 'Elf, our kind can move and fight far better and faster in these conditions then your kind can.'

Kapou’e in Back Home: 'Better late then never.'

Kapou’e in The Coward: 'Well let’s see, first he betrays the trust of his sworn sovereign and becomes no less then a boot-licking spy for the humans.'

Narrator in Epilogue: 'People of all races took advantage of this and, consequently, those orcs thirsting for battle got more then enough to keep them from attacking their nearest neighbours.'
