Community Translations: Volunteers (Overview)


#225

Can I join the Spanish translation team? I’m Uruguayan and I’m good at translating. I’d love to help this game.


#226

Native norwegian with strong five in English here :slight_smile: Sign me up!


#227

Hello, folks and especially devs!
I’m native Russian speaker and know english pretty well. So, considering how Russia is pretty big gaming market and you’ll eventually will have to translate it into russian, so I’m offering you my help.

So, contact me via email or in-discourse messaging system.


#228

Her @devcor :smiley:

We have a thread to keep track of aaaalll the people who wants to help check it out:

Also welcome aboard and feel free to introduce yourself here:

Heya again. Add me to the OP please.

I checked some other guys who were saying they can translate the game into russian… Not so much of a translators they are (most of em).

To translate, to TRULY translate the game and transcend its, let’s say, soul, you gotta understand both languages quite good.

I myself am the translator (literally - I freelance for one company), and am capable of such work. Moreover, english was my passion over the years, so I’m quite fluent in it and understand some ‘inside jokes’, if you can say so about a language. Just tell me where to start :smile:


#230

Count me in for German translations as well. If there’s need for Swiss German, also for that. But I don’t think there was ever a “serious game” with Swiss German translation… :stuck_out_tongue:

As someone wrote before, 2 Semesters of Japanese is not nearly enough so I doubt that would help. Also some years of French but I wouldn’t trust a word I say in that language.


#231

Well, so far, everything is manual work. And that includes digging through zip files and replacing the English files. There is no official place to dump translation files. And no way to in-game switch between languages. Yet :wink:

But there’s a tool to use that can make things easier now in the beginning. Don’t know how many who are using it, but feel free to try it out and discuss it in that thread.


#232

@tkh That’s not really comforting… For all I know the devs can say ‘wtf you doing guys? We already hired a translator and did a translation, we’re done’.


#233

Oh, I’m not worried about that scenario. They are completely aware of community translation and have been close to answer our questions about translation-related stuff. I can’t point to a specific post, but bits and pieces here and there over the last 18 or so months. Yes, many of us have been on this forum for that long :wink:

Although I am a little worried about that this might be quite low in priority and that an official way to insert language packs into the game backbone is very far away.


#234

I can translate some into Japanese.

EDIT: Started Translating, I’ll update again once I have some more too show.


#235

Cool to see some translation in action :smiley:

Just a quick note or two, I see that you opened the r118 example files for both Eng and Swe.

  1. That English example file is not the latest, you’ll have to grab the latest file from your game folder. I just included the files as a demo.
  2. There is no need to open an existing translation file (like the Swedish one when working on a Japanese file). You can always start from scratch when starting with a new language. The “open translation file” is used when you want to continue on an old file (probably in the same language). It doesn’t break anything, just annoying to have a lot of Swedish words that probably aren’t that helpful :wink:

#236

So I have released my updated version of the program, it works quite well and I have used it to translate to Swedish. See the other thread for more info, and I encourage you to use it, find bugs, and translate all you want :blush:


#237

Great work so far.
Looking forward to the first public release :+1:


#238

even if there are already many germans who want to volunteer , if you still need one i would like to help you as well.

my german is quiet good ( would be a shame if not -because i am german) and my grammar is good as well, because i am on my way to become a teacher and for that it has to be good

still i am just a dedicated gamer :wink:


#239

an dedicated german gamer teacher - fuck off in my time this wasnt anyway possible :smiley:


#240

my physics teacher was also a dedicated gamer (we playerd in the same guild ^^ yeah and at the beginning it was kind of awkward- later on it was so cool)
so maybe its really rare but we exist :wink:


#241
