Heh. I don't know what that's supposed to mean, either. There's a list of sliders, and you can adjust how many dynamic lights are used for each effect, relatively.

Quote:
"AD_FlagCarriedBy" "La bandera está siendo llevada por" // This one is a problem,
//correct spelling in Spanish would be "'Player' lleva la bandera".
Maybe you could have "se lleva la bandera: 'Player'" I don't know. I know enough Spanish to sound stupid. We don't use proper English in everything, just enough to get the point across.

Just a little warning dont put Portuguese (br) as standard portuguese language because its not, Portuguese from portugal is the standard language. Best option imo is to put Portuguese and Portuguese (Br).

Well, then some portuguese guy comes here and translates to Portuguese - PT. I don't go to debate about which portuguese variation is standard or not, but more people in world speak Portuguese - BR than Portuguese - PT, despite Portugal to be original colonizer.

British english isn't standard english, even as american english isn't.

Should something like "mover la vista" or simply "mirar", "cabeza" can give the wrong idea, imo
Changed to
Code:
"FF_Mouse_Look"            "Usar el ratón para mover la vista"
"FF_Keyboard_Look"        "Usar el teclado para mover la cabeza"
Quote:
"FF_MapShot" Description is missing the first "
Fixed.

Quote:
"FF_JOINTEAM" "¡Únete a un equipo machote!" the word "machote" doesnt fit well (hi spanish girls) as the english version imo, mb change this for "valiente" or just leave it as "Únete a un equipo"
Replaced with
Code:
"FF_JOINTEAM"            "¡Únete a un equipo!"
Wanted to reproduce a bit of the humor there, but it may not be for everyone, I agree. So I changed it to the "flat" translation

Quote:
"FF_PREMATCH_END" "¡VAMORRR, A JUGAR!" misspelled
Changed to
Code:
"FF_PREMATCH_END"        "¡VAMOS, A JUGAR!"
Quote:
"FF_HINT_SNIPER_HEADSHOT" "¡Cabeza! El rifle de francotirador es el único arma del juego........etc"

Should be "...es la única arma del juego...." and mb leave the ¡Cabeza! as "Headshot" or "Disparo a la cabeza" ? not sure about this
Changed to
Code:
"FF_HINT_SNIPER_HEADSHOT"    "¡En la cabeza! El rifle de francotirador es la única arma del juego que hace más daño en la cabeza. ¡Apunta a los ojos!"
Quote:
"FF_HINT_DEMOMAN_FIREPL" "bla bla ........ y así sobreponerte a ese retraso"
It took me 1 minute to understand what you were saying and i already know how to play !

I think you should change that for something like "compensar el retraso"
Used both your suggestion and Firefox11 one, and changed it to
Code:
"FF_HINT_DEMOMAN_FIREPL"    "Las bombas no estarán armadas hasta que no dejen de brillar. Trata de usar la geometría del mapa para hacerlas rebotar y así compensar el retraso. También puedes usarlas para impulsarte y saltar más, llegando a lugares inaccesibles de otro modo."
Quote:
"FF_HINT_SPY_GANKDISGUISE" "Al propinar una puñalada mortar mientras estabas disfrazado" erm What ?

What about "Si apuñalas a alguien mientras estas disfrazado, tu disfraz cambiará (para parecerte a)/(al personaje de) tu víctima"
Didn't see a real problem there (except for the "mortar" typo), but changed it to the less complex
Code:
"FF_HINT_SPY_GANKDISGUISE"    "Si apuñalas a alguien mientras estás disfrazado, tomarás la apariencia de tu víctima. ¡Usa esto a tu favor!"

Quote:

Pipe thing: In my opinion, maybe it could be less technical. Like "Las bombas no estarán armadas hasta que dejen de brillar. Puedes usar la geometría del mapa para hacerlas rebotar, reduciendo el efecto del retraso. También puedes usarlas para impulsarte y saltar más, llegando a lugares inaccesibles de otro modo."
I used both of those suggestions of yours.

I also believe the first one was in TFC, and yeah, it's shorter and perfectly understandable, so there it is ("¡En la cabeza", "¡En la pierna!").

As for the second one, I think you're right. Sometimes one just wants to stick to the original translation to make it as precise as possible, but then you find you're just making it harder to understand, so it's better to rephrase things a bit as long as you just give players the right idea.

Thank you both for revising this stuff. Sometimes when you're translating such big chunks of strings, you lose a bit of perspective and even forget part of the context where they appear, thus writing weird-looking translations. Plus some typos always slip here and there, no matter how many times you revise it

BTW, I guess the "95.8 CAPITAL" thing won't be used anymore, so it really doesn't matter what we write there, right? Can any dev confirm this?

Thanks!

(Already replaced the old post with the new translations).

I never saw a school teacher teaching US English :P outside of US, so that makes it standard : )

About translating it to PT, meh dont have the patiente, and ill use English anyway. Translated would feel like a bad German film with voice actors translating it to pt .P

Well we'd love to do vocals, but there's whole worlds of problems with that. You can't just speak into a headset and have good quality stuff come out.

All of our sounds were done with professional-level recording equipment and mixed by guys who are in the industry.

For now, the text would be good enough.

Me, I'd really like to see Japanese done since they had a decent TFC league going back in the day, buuut... yeah. I don't write the language well enough to tackle a huge document like that. |=

I'm working on a Japanese translation, but I don't think it would be good enough for actual use in-game.

I only took half a semester and i'm still learning it so there's bound to be a lot of errors, especially grammatically for the sentences; but for all the single-word stuff it seems to be pretty spot on. I'm mostly doing this for practice, but if it turns out good enough and if someone could double check my work when i'm done, that'd be awesome.

I could help you, also i have a few Japanese friends that could read it over and make sure everything is correct.

I agree with you. I rarely use any translation in my games. I prefer to use english because all game focus this language primarily.

But many people prefer to use language translation because they don't understand english. I translated it for this people and for FF cause.

Just throwing this out there like I did in the past. I've got decent enough stuff (an actual mic [of the singing variety], pop filters, mixer, voice effects and all that jazz... but I'm pretty scanty on the software end) and would be willing to do some voice stuff.

But I don't speak anything other than English.

Has the new font been included in the latest version? I'm downloading it right now (I'm on a different PC than the one I was writing from some months ago), but I don't know if I'll be able to test it today.

no, I'm still having issues with the font being converted properly. But I'm thinking when I get it done mb I can "leak" it to you all so you can use it. Cause once it's done it's not gonna change for a while. We'll see though.

Cool thank you.

And something else:

As new stuff is added to the game, it will also need to be translated. So... how will we keep track of new added stuff?

I mean, if it was just added at the end of the language file, it would be a matter of replacing everything until that point with the translated strings we already have (copy&paste) and then translate everything below that.

However, if things are changed mid-file (which obviously needs to be done), how will we keep track of what's been changed/added and what's not? I guess we'll have to go through the whole file again with every update as if it was the first time, right?

well, the goal would be to log all of those and not make you have to search for them...but idk how well we log that (if at all). So yeah if it's not being logger then you would have to.

I'm thinking this: As soon as we get the font done, we can release language packs. There's no reason to wait for a patch. If we add new strings, I'll just add the string in English on the end of the file. Then you can translate them whenever you like.
