The “Translators wanted!” thread

The “Translators wanted!” thread

Postby Wuzzy » 16 Feb 2019, 01:43

Hi!
This is a thread to make announcements about when a project is currently seeking translators for the game for a (soonish) upcoming version. Ideally, this is the case when the project declared a string freeze or made an official announcement about this. Anyone should feel free to post here, you don't need to be a developer yourself.

A common practice is using a so-called “string freeze”. This means that no more texts are allowed to be changed until next release so that translators can work without getting screwed over by further updates. Any free software project worth their salt is doing string freezes.

Best practices for posts:
  • Mention game name and the upcoming version
  • It should be up-to-date, for an upcoming version, ideally when a string freeze is in effect (or will soon be)
  • Please don't post when the game is still in the middle of development and texts are fluctuating heavily
  • Expected release date / how much time translators will have
  • Post all relevant links
  • Links to important documents that should be read
  • Whatever else you think is relevant

Example post:
ExampleGame just entered string freeze for 1.0.0!

Game/version: ExampleGame 1.0.0
Homepage: https://example.org
News post: https://example.org/news/string_freeze_declared.html
Translation guidelines: https://example.org/guidelines.html
Expected release date: Not before 12/12/2012

[DONE] Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead

Postby Wuzzy » 17 Feb 2019, 18:08

Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead is very close to a string freeze. It it likely there will be an official announcement soon.

https://github.com/CleverRaven/Cataclys ... sues/27843

Name: Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead
Upcoming version: 0.D
Homepage: https://cataclysmdda.org/
Time before release: at least 2 weeks after string freeze (which is NOT announced yet, but soon will)

Notes: This is an insane game with an insane amount of text to translate. It helps a lot if you have played the game at least superficially already. I would not recommend translating this game for complete outsiders. Of course, all translators are welcome. But if your goal is a complete translation, be aware that translating C:DDA is basically a full-time task which requires serious effort to get completed, but it will get easier the more people contribute. :)

Edit: String freeze is in effect since yesterday.

[DONE] Minetest 5.0.0

Postby Wuzzy » 19 Feb 2019, 19:58

Minetest is approaching string freeze at the moment.

Name: Minetest
Upcoming version: 5.0.0
Homepage: https://minetest.net/
Instructions: https://dev.minetest.net/Translation
Online translation: https://hosted.weblate.org/projects/minetest/minetest/
Time before release: Unknown. I wouldn't wait until they officially declare string freeze, however. Just check out the Weblate site regularily.

Edit: An update has just been pushed to Weblate, it seems this will be the final update before release. So if you already translated, there are a few new strings now to translate.

EDIT: Minetest 5.0.0 released.

Pepper & Carrot web comic

A bit off-topic because it's not a game, but it's a free cultural work built 100% using free/libre software and I enjoyed reading it very much.

Webcomic: Pepper & Carrot
Homepage: https://www.peppercarrot.com/
Release: Ca. every 1.5 months
Upcoming version: Episode 31 (not quite ready for translation yet)
Translation guidelines: here

You will need Inkscape for translating. I composed my strings in LibreOffice so that I would have a spell checker.

Inkscape also has the annoying habit of adding absolute image links into the SVG. You can remove those with a plain-text editor - look for sodipodi:absref and delete the tag. We have reported a bug to Inkscape about this.
