I have, in fact, helped get a few other translation projects for the game off the ground, including the German and French patches, with some more on the way soon hopefully.
But I'm afraid there are no plans to release the tools to the public, mostly due to the state they're in. Some of them date as far back as 2003. There's a lot of old cruft in there and a steep learning curve. It's not a nice GUI-driven utility, which anyone can fire up and tinker with. Some of the final tweaks to the graphics etc. were in fact done by hand. For a release to happen, I'd need enough free time to rewrite the whole thing to be something more user-friendly. There are no such prospects at this point. If someone is serious about translating the game to their mother tongue, they are welcome to contact me, though, and we may be able to work something out, time permitting.
Thank you for the information! I hope for the day the sprite and text editing tools for the game will be released!
