I saw that there are already many people translating to german. I still don't like some of the translations and would like to send/propose some corrections.

Yes I read the Wiki topic about translation, and I read this whole thread. I'm still not sure how this works with the "long" texts. Should I change this texts in the Wiki or in the po file?

you should change them in the wiki - or use the talk-page of a translation (in the wiki) to discuss a potentially better translation.

only fix the longtexts in the wiki - otherwise they will be lost in the next sync process.

Hi,

I don't know if you still need translators. I can help for french translation but I went through the Wikis and it seems that every stable source has already been translated into french (and I'm not that good in russian which seems to lack translators)

So I corrected a few typos or short translations I didn't like in WIKI existing pages. I guess there's some validation process and I hope I didn't mess around too much :mrgreen: . I'm not sure if I need to signal/explain those modifications somewhere ?

Hi zark,

There are 5 french translations waiting for a volonteer if you want :D there : http://ufoai.ninex.info/wiki/index.php/List_of_msgid/Equipment
I think it's the last ones... in french for the moment.

Are there any danish translators? Seems not to be...

 6395 #: client/cl_map.c:1379
 6396 #, fuzzy
 6397 msgid "UFO in radar range\n"
 6398 msgstr "%s er gÃ¥et berserk!\n"

"%s has gone berserk" doesn't mean the same "UFO in radar range", or am I wrong?

Hi all, first post here. Started to play the game a few weeks ago and pretty psyched about it. I'd love to work on a Dutch translation. Gonna start reading some of the Wiki stuff on translating. Anyone I should contact if I want to create a Dutch translation part for the Wiki?

if you have questions about how to translate, feel free to just ask - otherwise (if you don't have any question) just start to translate

Hi, I realy liked this game.

I'm have some experience with C programing as I'm studing telecomunication and networks.

So I thought that I would be outstanding if I could help somehow with this game. As always there is one but :P

I don't have much time. Is it taking much time to "do the code". I know C, C++, Pascal and some bash. I'm not super at coding but I'm quite ok.

If coding is really time consuming I would happy to help with translation to polish :)

The "time consuming" part here is getting familiar with the current code. Once done, one can figure out hundreds of places he could improve/fix. The other possible solution is to grep for "todo" or "fixme".
I would suggest to start looking around src/client/cl_* files where is IMO easiest code.
If coding is really time consuming I would happy to help with translation to polish :)
Adding a patch to our sf tracker against current src/po/pl.po is welcomed. Other things to do are msgids to be translated. Take a look at our wiki at http://ufoai.ninex.info/wiki/ and take a look at my Talk page (Talk:Zenerka) where we discuss issues with polish translation.

TIA

I don't know, after pointing him to some things he dissapeared. Take a look at wiki (address few posts above), search for lists of msgids, and head over my (Zenerka) Talk.

hi, I translated UFOAI into Japanese.
http://www.sendspace.com/file/t45mch
This file is an alpha version.
(Only the menu/tooltips, about 60 percent)

UmeFont is being used in this translated now.
It is the following.
http://ume-font.sourceforge.jp/
https://sourceforge.jp/projects/ume-font/files
(ume-ugo5.ttf in ume-yz-377.7z)
locale - ja_JP.UTF-8

but, this font license is not GPL (A Japanese GPL font is not found.). licenseis is the following.

Great, I hope you will do more translating for us in the future.

By the way, I looked over the po file and I noticed some strange stuff like this:
Code: [Select]
#: ../base/ufos/menu_buy.ufo:2268
#, fuzzy
msgid "Show aircrafts"
msgstr "アーマー類を表示します"

#: ../base/ufos/menu_buy.ufo:2288
#, fuzzy
msgid "Show craftitems"
msgstr "アーマー類を表示します"
Are those placeholders or something?
