I need translators
« on: 2011-Mar-30 »
For my upcoming project, I need translator... from as many languages as possible (but only std ascii fonts!)

You will have to translate around 50 lines. I currently has english and spanish.

If you want to help me, give me an email to give you access to a google doc, and your language.

Thanks you!

PS: I would like to get this project as secret as possible until release day :)

It might be worth getting a native English speaker to go over your work ampos -

My advice would be to share a google docs spreadsheet for all languages and we can make a program that can read them. That way we all could benefit from this.

BTW: I did some translation tool in GLBasic that uses google translate. Did I post that?

Kitty Hello, good idea and we should use it for an open project but this project is apparently "secret".

Is it secret because you copied a new game and fear they might take notice? Just kidding...

I want to keep it secret mostly because I want to give you all a surprise when released (it is not Krakout nor a "game").

I am using currently a google-doc-excel for translation. Each row is a phrase  and each column a language. Sadly, my texts can not be used as a data-base of commonly game-phrases, but it could be a good idea to have such data-base.

I'm confused now. I just talked to matchy and now ampos replied as if it was the same person.
What's the opposite of schizophrenia (2 people think they are one)? XD


[edit] I hope me being a Clown today doesn't upset you. I don't know what happened but I hope it will end soon. Must be the meds agains hay fever.
