Translations: What Languages?

Post by Kanchou » Sat Oct 05, 2019 1:22 pm

Hello Everyone!

Currently working on localization for OWM, which will be out with our next release. What languages would you like to see OWM translated to?

So far we have:
* Spanish
* German
* French
* Italian (hopefully)

Also, we would appreciate anyone willing to proof read translations :). We have a volunteer for German (and Spanish), but not for other languages.

Thank you!

I'm fluent in French/German, but I'm not good in grammar in any of those, but I'm able to tell if it makes sence.. I could also look with my sister, she is working for her master degree in translation and can speak all 4 of those languages at least a little bit.

Edit: Well I guess there is no hard grammar to translate..

Only a few translations require correct grammar, most of it is making sure we get the right word and not something that isn't the correct word.

Considering making an early build with the new translations to let people try them, but also making a translation table available for anyone that wants to check.

Do you have any preference if you got the time to look over it?

Thank you!

We ended up doing Spanish and German ourselves since we have a native speaker for Spanish (me! :) ) and someone that has studied German. However, I'm sure the German translations may need some tweaking. If you have the opportunity, please let us know if you find any issues.

We would still love to do French, but I'm afraid it's a LONG list of words and phrases that need to be translated so I think I would be remiss to ask you to do it. But if you still want to volunteer send us an email (we can at least give you free artwork for your time! :)).

Thank you!

We'll see what we can do. There is a lot of specialized terms to translate.
