You can probably disregard this but might still be worth asking.
I wonder if it would not be much simpler to use ARMIPS since you need to look up where the text data is stored.. Then the assembler takes care of the pointers and you could focuse good labels for the different text. I never heard of Atlas and I do not do translations.. still thanks for sharing your resources.
