Title: Translation Help
Post by: aroldo on 2013-Feb-18
I came here to ask the help of the GLB community!

I need you help to translate the following text to these language:

German, Italian, French, Spanish, Japanese.

"Brick Buster is a new version of the classic Breakout game for the mobile devices.
Touch the screen to move the paddle and deflect the ball to destroy the bricks.
Get more points when you hit the butterfly that appears between phases.
Destroy bricks faster when you get 2 or 3 balls!
Challenge your friends to see who gets the high score!"


Thank you in advance!

Here is my german translation...

"Brick Buster ist eine neue Version des klassischen Breakout Spiels für mobile Geräte.
Berühre den Bildschirm um den Schläger zu bewegen und den Ball zurückzuwerfen, um die Steine zu zerstören.
Bekomme mehr Punkte, wenn du den Schmetterling triffst, der zwischen den Phasen erscheint.
Zerstöre Steine schneller, wenn du zwei oder drei Bälle erhältst!
Tritt gegen deine Freunde an um zu sehen, wer die höchste Punktzahl errreicht!"

Destroy bricks faster when you get 2 or 3 balls!

Brick Buster es una nueva version del Classico Breakout para móbiles.
Toca la pantalla para cambiar la ruta de la pelora y destruye los ladrillos.
Consigue más puntos si consigues darle a la mariposa que aparece en las fases.
Destruye los ladrillos con la máxima rapidez que puedas, y coje 2 o 3 pelotas.!!!
Reta a tus amigos a ver quien es que consigué mejor puntuación, (y el el rey de Brick Buster)  -- "This gree phrase it's only an idea for promote, it's something _

Italiano:

"Brick Buster è una nuova versione del classico gioco Breakout, realizzato per i dispositivi mobili.
Devi toccare lo schermo per muovere la racchetta e deviare la palla per distruggere tutti i mattoni.
Si ottengono più punti quando si colpisce la farfalla che appare tra le fasi.
Distruggerai i mattoni più velocemente ottenendo il bonus per utilizzare 2 o 3 palle contemporaneamente!
Sfida i tuoi amici per vedere chi ottiene il punteggio più alto! "

PHASES???
I do not know the equivalent in Italian.
Post a screenshot and highlight the area phases, so I correct the word!

"...between phases" same as "between levels" I think?

Brick Buster is een nieuwe versie van het klassieke Breakout spel voor mobiele apparaten.
Raak het scherm aan om het balkje te bewegen en kaats de bal terug om zo de stenen te vernietigen.
Je krijgt meer punten als je de vlinder kunt raken die tussendoor verschijnt.
Vernietig de stenen sneller met 2 of 3 ballen!
Daag je vrienden uit om te zien wie de hoogste score kan behalen!

Just to mention, Atari have prove to been pretty aggressive to send copy infrigement against games that use copyrighthed words as well clones, even this one got pulled:
http://www.joystiq.com/2012/01/03/atari-allegedly-claiming-copyright-infringement-on-hundreds-of/

So if you want to been save, dont use the word "Breakout", which is trademarked by Atari :-P.

Otherwice good luck with your game, and hope you got fixed and reduced the memory usage of your game.

Ps. "Breakout" could eventuelly turn to "ball & paddle".

I have some fixes for the Spanish traslation:

Toca la pantalla para mover la pala y desvía la pelota para destruir los ladrillos.
Consigue más puntos si le das a la mariposa que aparece entre las fases.
Destruye los ladrillos más rápido cuando consigas 2 o 3 pelotas!!

hardyx thanks for the translation once again.

backslider thanks for the suggestion.

spacefractal I will have to have two versions one for iOS generation 4 and up and one for generation 3 and below.
I will still be using my re-size tool, I spend a lot of time to get it working write and it helps me reduce the  management of my applications.
One question, I know I can load an image in memory , than resize it, than use GRABSPRITE and then use SAVEPRITE to save the resized image to a file, I will do this process once when the game is first loaded I can save the images with the right resolution for the devices reducing the file sizes.
The ideal situation would be to have a GLBasic command that would be like SAVESPRITE "filename$", W%, H%
