A good day for Germans!/ Ein toller Tag fuer Deutsche!

Postby Tom » Fri Nov 11, 2005 8:00 pm

Yes, that's right meine Damen and Herr, in the next week we plan to release our first language pack for Darwinia. As you might have guessed this will be in German! But Don't panic there'll be more language packs on their way!

As ever we'd love you guys to try and break it and find any bits that we've missed. We'll put a patch here on the Darwinia website when it's done, and we'll be setting up a special localisation bug list on the forum. Please post any mis-translations or missing translations on there...

Ja genau das ist es meine lieben Freunde, denn naechste Woche werden wir unser erstes deutsch-sprachiges Darwinia Spiel herausgeben. Das Erste einer Reihe von mehreren sprach-Versionen!

Und wie immer moechten wir euch bitten jegliche Bugs oder uebersehenes fuendig zu machen. Wir werden ein Patch auf die Darwinia Website tun sobald das Spiel fertig ist, und eine besondere Bug Liste ins Forum geben. Also schreibt ungewollte uebersetzungs Fehler oder versehentlich ausgelassene Worte dort hin...

Thanks / Danke :-)

Tom, Mark und Chris.

I doubt it... if they had done the translations in Google, why wouldn't they have simultaneously released Spanish and whatever other languages Google has translation tools for? I suspect the German in the forum post was done at the last second with Google, but I would think the game was actually translated...

Well, I hope the language package has a better quality than the news post. :D

Here are some corrections:

Ja sie haben richtig gelesen liebe Freunde, denn nächste Woche werden wir eine deutsche Lokalisierung von Darwinia veröffentlichen. Die erste Lokalisierung in einer Reihe von Vielen!

Und wie immer möchten wir euch bitten jegliche Bugs oder Fehler aufzuspüren. Wir werden den Patch auf der Darwinia Website anbieten, sobald das Sprachpaket fertig ist und außerdem eine Bug Liste im Forum einrichten. Also schreibt alle Übersetzungsfehler oder versehentlich vergessene Worte dort hinein...

Guys, I'm still learning ;-)

Don't worry we're getting it professionally localised!

Sort of on a related note. There is a Polish version of Uplink being released. Is this an authorized localization as well?

Given that nobody (including Chris, etc) had heard of it before people started joining #uplink, my assumption is a "no, not at all".
Don't think about The Game.

According to Tom this semi-legitimate. Apparently there was a agreement to let Techland do the translation, but they didn't tell IV the translation had been released. At least there may be a chance IV can get some money out of this. :)

Use human translation, not some web-translator, it will only translate word for word, and will not put into tenses.

MARTIN does Deutsche!

I could, but i do Francais, and ich habe keine lust!! <_<

Harr! Well, after our home-baked German translation sort of died over time, this is a nice change of pace. 'll be glad to contribute a bit again in that department.

Und anders als Tom verfüge ich auch über Umlaute xD
*throws Tom a german keyboard*

Steamwards ho!
