A frenchman on your forum

#1 Post by Morsula »

Hi guys,

First, you excuse me - perhaps - for my bad level in english : I am french and I like the word for word ! :mrgreen:

I discovered FreeOrion project using Google. I find idea's great ! I am a MoO2's addicted. FreeOrion is a nice game, but I have difficulties in appreciating it because English is not my native language. I think only time and improving my english can be help me, but I don't refuse a FreeOrion's french version, of course !

To introduce myself in a nutshell : I am 19 years old, I am student (management information systems), and later (next year !) I would like to study law to become a diplomat, and often I look at the sky (I am afraid about it because the Martians want to remove my teddy bear).

I wish you a good continuation for this project which is promising. :wink: :D

Bye ! I spend sometimes to read topics and to learn news about game project.

Hi :)

I don't know if anyone else here knows French... but you do. If you would like a French translation, why don't you start one?

Not easy with my English level ! I can try, but I don't have much time... :?
I would like that more Frenchmen know your great project.

i'm french too and i try to help with the translation...

in facts it's going well but more eyes would be welcome to find mistakes or not-so-good translation.

some exemple :

Design : plan, conception, dessin, schéma?
Supply : provisions (i suspect that autonomie is better...)

and there a lot more...

french :

Tu peut aider en jouant avec la dernière version du jeu et la dernière traduction française pour relever les incohérences et les défaut de traduction (voire même les fautes de typo, d'orthographe, de conjugaison et/ou grammaire).
