I'm gonna translate my client into several languages, but I can't do it alone.

I've decided I want to translate my Gunz pserver client into languages other than English. Gunz is a game enjoyed worldwide and as such, it needs more languages for the server than just English.

However, I'm only fluent in English. I need people to volunteer to help me with this endeavor. It won't be easy, nor will it be quick. This could take weeks to put together, possibly a month or two depending on how dedicated the people are to it.

As I've stated, I need people to volunteer for this. My team only knows English, we need others. So all people who are FLUENT and have GREAT grammar in the following languages, please contact me via PM:

French

Filipino

Chinese


These are the only ones I'm doing for now, though I'll probably do others as I finish these. The people who are volunteering need to be FLUENT and COHERENT in BOTH their selected language and English, as direct translation will be needed.

I would have done this myself, but I didn't wanna use Babelfish for everything and the native speakers of those languages read it as gibberish, so I'd rather have someone who can speak those languages do it.

As far as compensation for the translation service, you'll most likely get to play on my server and test things with my team and me (and my friends) as a reward, unless I think of something different.

PM me if you're interested, and make sure to demonstrate to me that you're fluent in both English and your other language.


I'll update this thread as things progress.

Alright. I'm thinking I'll accept Kochon. It'll be nice to have several people to a language though, so if anyone else knows French, or any of the other languages, contact me.

Several different clients, one for each language. I'd rather not have to try to make the language selectable, plus it'll be a hassle for non-bilingual people since they'll only want one language.

This will only work for my server as far as text goes. The interface textures will work on any server, but I have to mod a lot of XMLs in the system.mrs as well as the interface.

You could make it compatible with other servers, but there's no guarantee it'll work for every server. You'd need to mod the system.mrs I make with the other server's vital XMLs, such as scenario.xml, zitem.xml, etc. So I guess it's possible, but not recommended unless you know what you're doing.

There's no need for Brazilian. I can get most, if not all of it from the BrGunz client and adapt it to my server. But thanks for the offer.

Republic, no way! Don't get translation from brGunz! It's awful, if you were brazilian you would know what I mean! brGunz has a BabelFish translation, pratically. Don't do that, brazilians will be disgusted with the translation as we were when we player brGunz x_x

At least allow me or any other brazilian to take a overlook at it and fix the so many bad translations :(
Don't do that with us. A nice portuguese or English. As I know you hate latin guys saying that Engspanish.

I didn't know that.

Well, if you're interested in it, contact me via PM with an AIM or MSN address. You seem pretty fluent and all that, I'll probably have you handle Portuguese, along with someone else.

Then its uber easy.

As Hakurah mentioned, brGunZ translation is really creepy. I have no more doubts they either used babelfish to translate it or someone really BAD on english did the job.

Well, if you and Hakurah don't mind, I'd like you two to help with the Brazil translation then. But I can't start anything until this weekend, I have SHITLOADS of homework all this weekend.

Add me on MSN, I'd rather do this away from the forums. Get the address from me via PM or from kochon or Hakurah.
