Title: Ur-Quan Masters in other languages
Post by: Flexman on February 27, 2005, 06:49:27 pm
How about making Ur-Quan with Language Files so that one can easily translate the text into other languages? Would be fine if you could select the languages for the game as there is many text.

Is anything like that planned?

I'm not sure, but there's a German version being translated.

Most of the work to support translations in UQM has apparently already been done; a German translation is already available, although it hasn't been completely integrated into the main UQM development tree.

Ok, great! Where is the link of the German version?

Maybe it should be integrated into the UQM tree,

Umm...  Did you try looking for it in Google? (http://www.google.de/search?q=ur-quan+masters+deutsch&hl=de)  Even once?

Yes I did. But you can't find any download there - just a "news" from the last november that everything is finished and only has to be proved. :(

I think, i must update the news page in the next days  ::)  ;D

The translation is finished and i wait for UQM with their integration
of the language support. Is it ready, then i build a package for the
german content.

Putting the hard-coded strings in files is something that we're not likely to do until the new resource system. This is something that probably won't be in 0.4 yet.
However, this is just a small part of the used strings. You can already make a package for the rest.

Having a Portuguese version of Star Control 2 is something I desire for many years. ;)

It we could have text files available for translation would be great.

I guess we could have translated versions of the game very quick, judging by the active comunity we have (I still remember the speech synchronization phase... it was VERY quickly done).

I think I could undertake the Portuguese translation...

Just out of curiosity, should we expect this "new resource system" before version 1.0?

See here (http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/sc2/sc2/content/comm/), the speech files are in the subdirectories, and have the extension .txt.  Instructions on creating add-on packs with your translated files are available elsewhere on this forum.

Hello,

No, at least not yet.

---------------------------------------------------

Oi,

Não, infelizmente ainda não existe o Ur-Quan Masters em Português.

Estava a pensar em começar um projecto de tradução, uma vez que basta traduzir alguns ficheiros de texto.

No entanto, como não tenho tempo actualmente vai ter de ficar para mais tarde.

I could help traslating the game to Spanish... I'm a native spanish talker...

Ah, great!

So was there any process yet to get the German language files into that or can I get them anywhere?

nightshadow: I found this thread through the Ultronomicon - I'd be willing to help with a portuguese translation.  I lived a couple years up in northeastern Brazil, but it's been about six years since I've been back so my portuguese is a bit rusty.  I've made a small dent in translating the dialogue but there are a few phrases and words that I'm not certain of.  Are you interested in a coordinated effort of some kind?


Title: Re: Ur-Quan Masters in other languages

Polish translation started, see the appopriate thread.

My current problem is that I do not have much time right now (being the main reason I have placed the project on hold).

But with some help from you I think we can get somewere... ;)

Send me what you have done to my e-mail at brunofonseca@puntopt.net, and I'll have a look at it.

Brazilian Portuguese is a little bit different from the Portuguese one, but maybe we can do something about it...eheh

Cheers

Hi du_balanco_bako,

There is no Portugueses translation avalable at the moment.

Since I am about to begin my vacations, I think I will have a look at the files, and recruit some more people to get the project started.

It will take some time, but I'll keep you guys posted about it.

-----------------------------------
Oi du_balanco_bako,

De momento ainda não há nenhuma tradução para Português disponível.

Como estou quase a começar as férias, vou dar uma vista de olhos nos ficheiros, e recrutar mais algumas pessoas para meter o projecto a andar.

Vai demorar algum tempo, mas eu vou-vos mantendo informados.

(english follows)

Y a-t-il des fans francophones ici? C'est drôle, c'est une des grandes langues qu'on n'a même pas encore mentionée jusqu'à présent. Je suis prof de français et d'anglais et je travaille aussi à la pige comme traducteur/interprète. Pour ce qui est de la programmation, c'est vraiment pas mon fort, malheureusement, mais pour ce qui est de l'aspect linguistique, alors là, pas de problème! J'ai tout juste besoin d'un peu de direction ;o) Alors? Qui se porte volontaire pour démarrer le projet de traduction en français?


Anyone up for a french translation? It's one of those major languages missing from the discussion here. I myself am a french and english teacher as well as freelance translator/interpretor. The entire programming aspect  totally eludes me, as I'm not familiar with it at all but as far as translating text is concerned, I'm more than willig to help. I just need guidance ;o) Who's up for starting the french translation project?

The UQM team is working on making sure that translating UQM is just a question of editing a lot of text files and images. Take a look at the Finnish translation of UQM (http://www.kyamk.fi/~vi3dhepe/uqm-fin/index.html), for an example of what you need to do to translate UQM.


Title: Re: Ur-Quan Masters in other languages

Take a look at this page (http://uqm.stack.nl/wiki/Translations) in the Ultronomicon.

You might also find something of interest in the Portuguese Project page.

www.pt-masters.net (http://www.pt-masters.net)

There you can find the text files ready for download, amongst other things. ;)
