To translate 2.02, you'll need to translate pieces of text and add them to the foreign language file, which unfortunately, is formatted differently.

For instance, this "string" (that's how pieces of text are called) from the English version:

CODE
CONTROLBAR:ToolTipElrondRestoration
//"Requires Level 10 \n Heals nearby allies and fully refreshes their special ability timers \n Left click icon then left click on target area"
"Requires Level 5 \n Heals nearby allies and fully refreshes\ntheir special ability timers \n Left click icon then left click on target area"
END


Is replaced (work from a 2.02 Spanish translator -- but the principle applies to any other language too) by this:
CODE
CONTROLBAR:ToolTipElrondRestoration;{Requisito: Nivel 5
Cura a los aliados cercanos y rellena completamente todos los contadores de capacidades especiales
Haz clic con el botón izquierdo sobre el icono y, a continuación, sobre la zona objetivo}


As can be seen, the construction:
Title
"Text"
END


Is replaced by
Title;{Text}

Your goal is to update all texts in the foreign language file based on the English one. If you indicate you're willing to translate, I will send you the 2 files and indicate which strings from the English file you need to translate.

In addition, you may notice the following things:

I really want to do it.
Also, I have many spanish-language mates that would be very happy if the game is in spanish (because they have very bad english or whatever). So I have one more goal, and is to help my friends.
I will start as soon as I can do anything

There is another user who expressed interest in doing Spanish, however, he's not done anything up until now. I will try to get a hold of him. If I can't, I will send you the files instead.

Regardless of the outcome, I wanna thank you for volunteering biggrin.gif

I can translate into Dutch. I'm currently doing my MA degree in (literary) translation so I should know what I'm doing. I've recently returned to BFME and, lacking any modding skills whatsoever, I'd love to contribute to the community.

Let's hope you can invent a better name for Dwarven Zealots than "Dwergen Hakkers" biggrin.gif

give me polish.

I can translate it into northern English if you want.

Example:
"Ah a new horde of orcs"
"Eee by heck, if it in't a new load of orcs"

Ive never understood that name, a Zealot is some kind of fanaticus eg in a religious context

Posted by: Ab3r` Sep 26 2017, 15:10 PM

Think it's also a unit in Starcraft.

A Zealot doesn't have to only be an enthusiast of religious ideals. They could be enthusiasts of their own cultural or political views/beliefs, which in this case, would probably be the Dwarven way of life.

I would've sent the files sooner, but the page is not allowing me to upload anything ATM. Can I send it via e-mail or Discord?

Some mods called them Khazad Dum Veterans or stuff like that I think.

Also I can do the german translation.

I volunteered for a Greek Version back then but no one showed interest to guide me through the procedure. laugh.gif

I could do the Greek translation if you are interested.

We don't have a Greek translation at all as far as I'm aware. So you'd have to translate all 2.02 strings since the beginning of the project.

I don't mind giving it a try.

Is there even a Greek 2.01?

I think there isn't.

Don't think so either biggrin.gif
Assuming RotWK supports the Greek alphabet you could still do it, but you'd have to translate RotWK in its entirety. Will probably take you days of full-time work post-13661-1143531603.gif

I would also like to help doing the German translation. It is my native language, and my English proficiency should be quite sufficient. If I can support you, just let me know. smile.gif

It's easy to split up the work. E.g. one translator can begin from the top of the file, the other from the bottom. I'll let Solas decide whether he wants to do it that way however.

Lol, I've been told I have a great voice. Maybe I should do some voice acting, too. I have a very low octave...

I heard the Edain community is or has actually been looking for voice actors for some of their stuff.

Considering their quality of voice files, they'd take sound from anyone tongue.gif

But for good sound recordings you need at least 200 bucks to buy an audio interface and a mic. And on top of that you gotta know how to voice act. I mean, anyone can read lines, but the point is you gotta know how to sound convincing.
