Well, I have downloaded the Russian localization from the first post.
Then open up the .lod files by using LodArchiver (get it from GrayFaces site, it takes like 5 seconds to google the download...).
LodArchiver is not unlike WinRar, 7zip and such - it opens up archives. Only this one is made specifically for the 3DO's archives.
Specifically, you can open up - 01 LocRU.EnglishT.lod - and go through the txt files inside. NPCText.txt inside 01 LocRU.EnglishT.lod is the base game's localization for what NPCs say.
For Merge specific texts, open up LocalizeTables.RU.txt (not inside lod, it's just in the russian localization)
But check the other txt files too (both inside the lod archives and outside).
