(Not So) Quick List of Phrases for Translation

Just reading all the text and buttons you can press shows how big a project this will be! :open_mouth:

“Today, we’re chopping trees for wood. I’m already sick of the wood jokes.”,
“Timbeerrrrr!!! I could get used to saying that.”,
“Attacked more trees today. By Sid there’s a lot of trees out here.”,
“The gang’s keeping track of who’s chopped down the most trees. It’s me but in the time it would take to correct their math I’d rather just add another tree to my total.”,
“Thought I saw a hornet’s nest while we were logging. Luckily, everyone got out of the way in time.”,

“Everyone chop together! Chop! Chop! Chop! Yes, hurry too!”,

Oh very nice, will be very useful for translators! Great work! :slight_smile:

wow, well done @capotzalco! as @Smokestacks mentioned, this should help immensely!

yup, two Internet points for you sir… :+1:

If you look in the files, specifically stonehearth/data/personality, you can find all of the things the workers are able to say in the JSON files. :smile:

Sorry @twip, I’m not as good at that stuff and have no idea where to find that on the steam version. I hoped a nice ‘codemonkey’ would find it for us :stuck_out_tongue:

Edit: now added :smiley:

Here are some of their sayings:
(I’ll do more later, if no one else beats me to it.)
(I did the embarking sayings but there is still the chopping wood sayings and eating berries sayings.)

  • “Everyone seems to have gotten here OK! Well… almost everyone…”
  • “Wooo! Fresh air and new land! And lots and lots of trees! I’m going to love it here!”
  • “Well, here we are, I guess. A million miles away from civilization. Great.”
  • “Mom was right. We’re all going to get eaten by bears.”
  • “At the time, wilderness seemed better than jailtime, but I’m starting to wonder.”
  • “Walk a thousand miles to get away from people and… there are still people. Spork.”
  • “Three days have passed since I had a decent philosophical conversation. Trying not to panic. Failing. Trying to keep it in. Succeeding. Mostly.”
  • “Wow! This is a lot of great outdoors. Well, time to form strong relationships and build community!”

Lol sorry too late :stuck_out_tongue:

Good gravy, that’s a lot of stuff! Again, good job, and thanks @twip for the tips!

May I add that in stonehearth.smod, inside stonehearth/locales there is the file en.txt. That contains quite a lot of things that could be translated… :slight_smile:

Ya, I found that as well. I just haven’t gotten around to editing out all of the code so that just the text that needs translations is left :smile:

Ah okay… :blush: I’m glad I helped in some sort of way? :tongue:

What kind of time-bending Martian are you? That would definitely NOT be a “quick” list on Earth. :stuck_out_tongue:


This is awesome!

Now we just need some way to divide the work and coordinate it.

I’m working today, and would like to give translating the list into dutch a shot, but… It would be a waste of time and effort if my fellow Dutch translators did the samething and we all post our lists afterwards.

So while this is a good start, I think it would be very usefull to give this a little more thought.

Also we would ned a format that works for RedEnt, othersiwe we give them more work, which is probably not something they’re keen on.

Which is exactly what this this thread’s for:

The entire point of that thread was not to see who’d do what so we knew which translations we’d get, but to see who’d do what so those who put themselves forward could get together or work out some way to work together on it!

We also need someone to translate it into Klingon and Pirate Speak… :smile:


Haha, yes, though I’m sure we can ‘convince’ Notch to let us use his pirate speech

Very nice! I would love to help out in the development of Stonehearth, and this could be my way to do so.
As I don’t see anyone raising a hand to translate this into Swedish I’ll go ahead and start with it =)

One question though; do you guys think a simple text file (e.g. .doc or .txt) with a table of translation is enough? Or do you think something else would be more appreciated?
I don’t know if any fellow Swede will hop along and help me out; nor if the end goal is to send it all to Radiant and have them implement it all by them self?

Notch involved in the development of Stonehearth? People! Take your bags because we have another Minecraftclone coming our way! :blush:

Did… did you just say that… :disappointed:

I totally did… let’s fire Notch. :stuck_out_tongue:
