Welcome all, here is the official translation/localization thread for all things Planetary Annihilation. Some general rules of this thread in particular: - Please stay on topic, it's gonna be a big thread. - Discuss the details of specific translations on the localization site, unless it needs to be discussed in more detail than the comments section allows for (See 3. in the image below) - Have fun, make suggestions on ways to improve things, and get involved. - This thread will be cleaned a little more aggressively than most, as old posts get stale or not relevant to the current conversation. - This will stay a backers only post for now, probably until we're close to beta. If you have someone who's not a backer but is excited to help out, please invite them directly, but don't re-link on Facebook, twitter, etc. All the other rules of "Backers only" forum apply. The tool (http://www.getlocalization.com/PALocalization/): 1. This is a list of all strings uploaded. You can filter by quality (I'll get to that), untranslated, or translated, or alternatively, All Strings. In general, most of you will want to spend your time either in Sorted by Quality or Untranslated Strings filters. 2. This is the specific string to be translated. 3. This field provides any context for the translation, as well as a place to discuss it. Please feel free to make use of it. 4. This is where any existing translations, or system suggested translations are stored. A human translation will show a source like you see here "mscattergood". If the system has a recommended translation, you can also copy the best one as your translation and post it. 5. Enter your translation suggestion here IF either no translation exists, or you strongly feel the current options don't provide an ideal translation of the sentence. 6. This is every bit as important as area 5. This is how the "quality" filter is derived. To arrive at quality translations, the best choice available needs to be voted up. When we download translations, it automatically downloads the "best" choice, as determined by the community. SO we rely heavily on you all to use the Up thumb to vote for the best translations, even if it is someone elses. Please only use the "report user" feature if someone is clearly abusing the system or spamming in garbage. And only vote up the translations you think are best. If you have questions or are in doubt, please feel free to ask questions in this thread. To participate, all you need to do is create a free account at getlocalization.com. I'd recommend using an ID Uber can recognize, as we will likely be providing some special thanks to active/regular contributors to the translation process.
