Translating

Heya,

Afraid I do not have any computer skills whatsoever, however, if by any chance you are planning to release the game in other languages besides English, I would be glad to lend a hand translating into Spanish.

Hi Nightmarer.

Hi Nightmarer.
You're not the only one waiting for news about the translation.
For the moment, we have nothing about it excepts the FAQ.
I personaly translate into french the news but i'm not feeling good enough to translate for the game content.
Let's see if we can obtain a response :)

We will need translators but not yet. I'm quite happy for people to offer their services in this thread, and we can then get back to you at a later date.

I thought it would be

I thought it would be nonesense to open a new Thread, in an earlier Post of mine some said that its better that the devs find a collection of theme-based things. I´m volunteering for the German translation then. Just that you know you have someone there.

For the record I don't think anyone implied you couldn't start new threads on this forum about anything you want. People do it every day. It was simply common sense that after 5+ years there would be a TON of costume ideas, animation ideas and prop ideas so having common threads for those things makes things easier. :)

Turns out there have actually been a number of short-lived threads about language translation for this game and the topic does seem to pop back up every few months. Maybe there ought to be a more permanent, common thread for this topic so that people who are offering their services for that don't get lost in the weeds. It's just up to someone to pick up that ball and run with it. Doesn't really take much more than declaring a given thread as the "Official Language" thread or whatever you want to call it.

At one time I was the guy who led the topic of translation/localization. I might work with it again in the future. It is early yet but it's getting VERY close. In-game translation will not be as important as the documentation of the game instructions and their translation. I have a list of languages I'd like to see implemented and I can post it here later. German, French, and Spanish will definitely be a must though.

My wife could translate into Chinese. Of course getting her to do it is a different matter.

As long as we have a klingon

As long as we have a klingon version to go with the english version, all is good.

Wasn´t implementing anything like that. But if there some 'official' compilation thread I would post there. I understand why its easier for the Devs and only wanted to support that.

After several post on this subject, we have an answer ! Alleluia !! xD

I agree that the game UI and the game instructions (and at least some help windows) are as critical as the translation of the cashop shop buttons/titles, the game download page and the loader window.
Then, we can talk about in game translation :)
Maybe we could initiate an eisenhower matrix with you ? Intended what the players estimate to be translated first.

Whatever, keep in mind that I and Yzangard are ready to help for the french translation.
Did you thought about the deepl API for the in game translation ?

From experiences on other games, Portuguese, for the Brazilians, might be worthwhile, also.

Be Well!
