Romanian Translation

#1 Post by HolyPad » Sat Jul 25, 2015 8:37 pm

Hi I would like to translate the game into Romanian if its possible.
Considering that I don't have have many experience with game development, can someone say what I have to do?

You should have a look at this page:

There might be a few additional things to be aware of, but I'll leave it to people actively working on translation stuff to comment further.

In addition to that page, there are some discussions in various threads in this forum that might be helpful to you. I'll also mention one of the most important top-level concepts-- don't feel overly bound to anything close to a literal translation: consider the English version to simply be a description of the information that is to be conveyed, and then you try to convey that same information in the best way possible in your respective language. A slight limitation to that advice is that some of the various entries, like SitReps, or various Pedia articles, do fairly clearly have a pattern that is followed across multiple related entries, for what information is presented in what order, so that should also be kept in mind.
