Hey. Here is the place where you can candiate yourself to help us to translate language. Candidate even if there are already translators!

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 botˇn izquierdo sobre el icono y, a continuaciˇn, 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:

Posted by: Ultimategladia Sep 25 2017, 13:57 PM

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.

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

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 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?

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

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.

Anything other than the real deal or official works of EA is bogus, in my view. It's extremely difficult to mimic the standard of professionals, so when mods go out attempting this, it just looks bad.

Full blown mods can be exciting, but there's always something that'll look out of place, which is enough for me to completely reject them.

Most language packs were last updated in for the release of version 3.6.1, so there's a major translation gap at the moment.

You should ask Fingon if he thinks working together is plausible. Maybe you could help translating all the map related strings for v7.0.0. They are quite numerous.
