I didn't have time to play your mod but I looked at the .WRI file of your first mission and saw a few language mistakes (including grammar errors and typos):

Quote:
- Stop comrades. Prepare yourselves to the journey. Forward, march!

Should be: Stop comrades. Prepare yourselves for the journey. Forward, march!

Quote:
- Brilliant. If our predictions according to your position are correct, go north until you find us.

Should be: Brilliant. If our predictions about your position are correct, go north until you find us.

Quote:
- Try staying away from fight and wait what happens.

Should be: Try to stay away from the fight and wait to see what will happen.

Quote:
- Defend the base until the return order.

Should be: Defend the base until the order to return.

Quote:
- And how about the general situation? Are we planning something big soon?

Should be: How about the general situation? Are we going to do anything big soon?

Quote:
Generally, we are winning. It seems like we have better positions, equipment and more people. American expedition is surprisingly some scientific one and they were totally unprepared when we did our first attack. We've destroyed about 10 bases at once, killing as many people as we haven't never after.

Should be: Generally, we are winning. It seems like we have better positions, equipment and more people. American expedition is surprisingly a scientific one and they were totally unprepared when we did our first attack. We've destroyed about 10 bases at once, killing more people than we've ever killed before and after that.

Quote:
- Sure. We just have to go east.

Should be: Sure. We just have to go on East.

I haven't checked other .WRI files (just don't have time for that) but I encourage you to do it yourself.



PS. Besides, there are some dialogs that are correct (well I'm not 100% sure cause I might have missed something) but aren't really used by English-speaking people and can be replaced with better sentences, that look more professional.

Example?

Quote:
No, not really. Now, in winter, it all went much calmer. They tried a minor offensive last week, but we stopped them in a moment.

Could be replaced with: Not really. It all calmed down in the Winter. They attacked us last week but we stopped them immediately.

If it depended on me, I would erase all the dialogs and write them over again.

"Defend the base until you are ordered to return" is better.

Original sounds better.

Yup, that works too and sounds more natural.
