Swedish Translation, need some advice

Postby sumpis » Thu Oct 05, 2006 10:54 pm

Ok so I'm trying to make a swedish translation, I've found some words and phrases I'm having trouble doing a good translation of and could need some help by my fellow swedes who might be lurking around here.

dialog_smoothlines Smooth Lines "Lena linjer"?
dialog_objecttrails Show Object Trails "Visa Objektsvansar"?
dialog_refreshrate Refresh Rate Dunno if I should leave it unchanged or change it to something like "Uppdaterings Hastighet"?

Also I dont really know if I should call nukes "kärnvapen" or "atombomber"

Another question is about what im supposed to change and whats supposed to not be changed, like with:
tooltip_place_airbase Place Airbase
should i change it to like "tooltip_place_flygbas Placera Flygbas" or "tooltip_place_airbase Placera Flygbas" ?
Flygbas is airbase and Placera place in swedish.

Well I'll get back into translating but I'm having some serious doubts about if my skill is good enough, well maybe atleast my translation will be a good base for someone with better skill to start with.

edit: serious typos :P

I have really no idea what smooth lines should be translated to in Swedish, but "lena linjer" sounds kind of childish. Object TRAILS should be "Objektspår" since it's not tails it's about ;)
And Refresh rate i "Uppdateringshastighet", nukes should be "kärnvapen" (in my opinion) since it's not really bombs but missiles with nuclear war heads. And last, I think the "tooltip_place_airbase Placera flygbas" would be the correct one to use.

The files are in main.dat->data->language->englisn.txt
and the cities names in data>earth>cities.dat (open it with the notepad as same as english.txt its a text file.)



but there are still some problems with some strings that are not inside the english.txt file.

Thanks Krakel, its funny how I read the line "Show Object Trails" as "Show Object Tails" five or six times.
Well since posting this I havent really translated anything more but I'll get back to it tommorow I guess, been busy consuming astronomical amounts of alcohol this weekend :P

You can use a program like winrar to open main.dat
