Using hex editor in exe file, but you cant probably use your specific letters eg. only latin. Because it needs hardcoding these letters and special font. In Turkey you use latin font so can be understable. It must be the same  area width as english!
All local exe must be build from zero to have all! But there is small size of text!

Also you can translate the game texts to your native language by editing EnglishTexts.ini from the English localization of the Russian version of the game - https://handbookhmm.ru/forum/download/file.php?id=1601

; Campaigns
[CMP0]
Name=Gateway
Desc1=You have established a foothold in the new land. This small island is fiercely contested by three other factions, all vying to capture the strategic town - Gateway.  The town is located in the center of the island, and so dominates its surroundings that the other factions will surrender to the lord that captures it. Beware the dragon guardian of Gateway!
Desc2=Gateway has fallen! The other lords have abandoned their castles and fled. They have alerted their homelands and now gather their forces. Speed is of the essence.

[CMP1]
Name=The Archipelago
Desc1=Your way to the mainland is blocked by the Archipelago of the Ancients, a series of four large islands, each held by a different lord. The opposition must all be subdued, and they are better led this time. Boats are a necessity - use them wisely!
Desc2=The Archipelago of the Ancients has been subdued and added to your domain. On the horizon lies a vast, unexplored - and hostile - continent.

...

Of course, if your language has specific letters you have to edit fonts first.

I have other question. I unpacked Homm1 resources using GrayFace's tools but I've got such images.


How to change it to 'normal'?

Maybe this is because of "Turns out, the GoG version of Heroes 1 has a different palette. Replace H1Palette.bmp of my tools with this one to work with the GoG version of the game."

See this page for a proper unpacker -

There's no grid in the vanilla HoMM. But you can add it as a mod (by Miner). Works both for Russian (Buka/TE) and English Windows/DOS (Original/GOG) versions.



Here is a hex grid for the original Windows version - https://handbookhmm.ru/forum/download/file.php?id=448

The object on the second picture has no description, but these four noticeable objects on the first picture have their names: Inn 1-4. And you can easily recognize to which faction each of them belongs. Maybe you could hire heroes there like in a map tavern in H3.

Yes these two looks like taverns so they are but next two? Towers? Looks like another objects. But maybe?
Yes taverns probably are for hero recruiting... So first concept was that tavern has only one faction hero next we see all in one.
Another version is that all faction has their own bildings. In final game we have some common structures. So in fact maybe these are town graphic added to map?! In demo nothing on map works.
