Imagine you have a RTS (e.g. Dune, Age of Empires, Settlers, Warcraft). There are certain commands available from keyboard to command the troops (Stop, Attack, Move) and some more general commands like Pause or Exit. The game has translations in many languages.
I can see two possible ways of generating keyboard shortcuts:
A. Use first English letter of said commands ("S", "A", "M", "P", etc.) for every locale.
B. Use first letter of the word on that locale (e.g. Rusian shortcuts will be "С", "А", "Д", "П" and German are "H", "A", "S", etc..).
Which approach is better when choosing the shortcuts for multiple locales?
