Translating my missions


Obsttorte

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

 

As 2.0 is standing outside the door I'd like to convert my missions to the I18N format. I'd promised that Tels but always forgot about it before release (too much enthusiasm I guess :blush: ).

 

Anyways, as we have quite a couple of non-native english people here and I have to fix the maps anyways, I wanna do this now.

 

The problem is that I can only provide a german translation, as this is the only language I speak (beneath the terrible english you are forced to read here ;) ).

 

So if anyone is interested to add translations to other languages as well, just post her.

Awesome.

 

I think we have a couple of czech people here. Also we have some russians, polish etc..., which may benefit from a czech translation either as it is more close to their mothertongue as english I guess.

 

The same counts for spanish.

 

I will convert the map within the next week and then upload the specific files here. You can then just upload here them as well.

 

Thanks a lot, mista. :smile:

This is something that you have to ask the people who have control over this. Best is to ask Springheel or Grayman, I guess.

Ah, bloody, completely forgot about that, sorry.

 

So, here is the english text: english.lang.txt

 

You need to replace all the text and rename the file afterwards. I'm not sure how they have to be called, but you can stick to czech.lang and spanish.lang for the respective languages. If that don't work I'll check on the wiki.

 

I want to update/bugfix my other missions anytime soon. Maybe I add/change some text during that, don't know. After I'm done I'll upload the specific files here, too.

 

@7upman: Bin mit der Übersetzung noch nicht fertig, war ... abgelenkt. Ich send sie dir sobald ich fertig bin.

 

EDIT: The map needs to be translated, too. If you can send me a list with the appropiate translations (english - czech, english - spanish) I'll make the changes.

Hey, I saw this thread and figured I'd give translating to Dutch a shot. I did this in like 30 minutes so there's probably some issues here and there. Also, you're most likely going to have to realign the text since the phrasing I used is sometimes quite different so as to make reading it a bit more natural. I've attached the file to this post.

 

What do you mean when you say "wipe"? Is it like a handkerchief (German Taschentuch)? Or is it like a whip?

You can call me Phi, Numbers, Digits, Ratio, 16, 1618, or whatever really, as long as it's not Phil.

Thanks a lot. :smile:

 

And I've meant whip (that one must have slipped through).

 

Unfortunately I don't speak dutch (although I understand some of the sentences), so if anyone else is speaking that language it would be good if that one could take a second look.

 

One question though: Does Heer mean Lord? With Lord I mean the title, not mister. I'm just asking because it sounds a bit like the german word Herr, what means the latter.

You go to the big editor, then below the text box is a place where you can upload files. Then there will be a button that says "add to post".

 

Also, I gave it another readover; corrected a few grammatical mistakes, translated a sentence I overlooked, corrected whip/handkerchief, shortened captain's report book dialog to make it read like it's just short notes.

The default mission get's replaced with the I18N version. If you choose a language in the main menu were there is a translation available, it will use it automatically, if not, it uses the english version.

Sorry for resurrecting this, but I'd like to take a stab at translating your FMs some time this year. Might as well, now that the main phase of my initial translation project is over. Preferrably, I'd like to receive the most up-to-date versions of your FM texts. Let me know if you still have interest.

I haven't touched my missions for years, so you can just grab the texts contained in the FM as they are for translation. Thanks btw. :)

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪

      Took a break from TDM until I got my backlog under control. It's been months and it's still not "under control". Damnit.

      I sleep well at night knowing the player will never see the absolute nightmare that is my sealing brushwork outside the playable area. Only the pointfile can judge me now.

      Somehow I admire the fact that the material from Dune has now been filmed for the third time. Personally, I could never do much with the material, but as a child of the 80s, I of course know the David Lynch movie...and that movie was at least funny!
