Translators

Hi guys,

In addition to the usual feature development, I've just written some code to hook up support for more languages in parts of the game. Primarily it will be for the big text dialogs initially, since this is the only font with international characters :/

So now I'm looking for volounteers to help me translate some strings! I welcome translations for any language (though Swedish might be a bit silly, since that's kind of my language). I know many have told me earlier that they are interested, but I will post here first to see if those guys are still around :)

The font should support most European languages, and it does have cyrillic letters so that includes Russian :) No support for Asian languages yet, since the fonts I use simply do not have such characters, and it would simply be a big project for me to change entirely.

OK, so just reply here, and then we'll set up some infrastructure if there's anybody who wants to help.

I cannot offer any financial compensation, but I might let you name a Dynasty or a ship or something :)

Re: Translators

For you, it's either a problem, or a fantastic opportunity to learn Spanish maybe? I need Spanish translator ;)

Well, I don't know Spanish but maybe Japaness because I'm trilingual.

I have a font called Nanum Gothic, It support both Alphabet and Hanguel. Maybe you have struggle to install it due to the Mojibake.

There are some fonts out there that have basically full unicode support, that I can also legally use in the game. But I don't think I will go down this path yet, since I'd probably need to do some code changes for it. I think I will stick with the latin + cyrillic languages for now.

Of course I will keep you in mind for future market invasions to Asia ;)

Assuming you speak Portugese, welcome aboard! :)
Can you send me a PM with your email address? Or just an email directly to snoddasmannen at gmail? Then I'll send you a list of strings that you can have a go at translating.
