Hi dutch adventurers.
Some days ago i finally release the english version of my last adventure, The Path of the Pumpkin.
This is probably one of the best adventure of italian history and my dream is to release it in more languages,
Someone are interested to translate the game? Is a huge work, about 11.000 text lines.
but i think that he can have a great success.

Here the game if someone want to try it (and enjoy it ;) )

One day, their dreary routine is shattered by an out-of-the-ordinary mission, that will take them on a hunt for a girl who as be kidnapped and forced to marry against her will. The two "detectives" have to do their utmost, in order to bring the case to a conclusion, but... this is only the beginning of something much bigger and much more involved!


60 Rooms!
80 Characters!
6 Chapter!
Twelve videos!
60 Tracks!

NOTE
If you have a blackscreen at the beginning of the game open the winsetup file and try a different graphic filter (probably 32 bit work) or graphic driver.

Hello WarioPunk. Welcome to Adventure-Island and congratulations on releasing The Path of the Pumpkin. I don't have any experience with translation work, but it sounds like a fun challenge.

Hi Sneaker.
Translate an AGS game isn't so difficult because the AGS editor make a simply text file with all the text of the game.

The difficult part is that this particular game is very big and have 11.000 lines to translate.

If you want to take a look at the translation file is here
https://www.sugarsync.com/pf/D0252748_61442443_643848

the file have italian line and translation line alternate, in this case i send you the english.trs with the italian line and the english line alternate (because you don't understand italian), and the translator must replace the english lines with the dutch lines.
Lines starting with '//' are comments - DO NOT translate them.
Special characters such as [ and %%s symbolise things within the
game, so should be left in an appropriate place in the message.
And more important all the phrase after the translation must have the same line number that have before, or the game don't read the file and start with the default language.
If you find an empty line just leave it empty.

Tell me if you are interested :wink:

Okay, I've never done something like this (although I do have experience with alpha and beta testing) but I'll give it a try.
Hope you're not in a hurry as my spare time is limited at the moment (writing a review, beta testing several games).
It might help, though, if I could play the game myself as sometimes the meaning of a word or sentence depends on context and will not make sense on its own (not sure if I have time for that).
Some questions.
- What is a Scalanatore? Groover can mean so many things I don't know which is correct.
- What do I do if I encounter a missing ; or "? Fix it as I go or leave the code broken?

@Sneaker & Vanya,

Ik ben bekend met de AGS engine, maken van AGS games, betatesting van AGS games en translations.

Als je vragen hebt over hoe iets moet qua de translation file, dan kan ik je daar dus bij helpen.

Citaat:
- What do I do if I encounter a missing ; or "? Fix it as I go or leave the code broken?

Die kan je gewoon toevoegen.


Groeten,
Arj0n

Hi all again

Citaat:
- What is a Scalanatore? Groover can mean so many things I don't know which is correct.


OK, the things connected at the character of Mr.FeeFee are hard to explain because are uncommon words, he is obsessed by the column and capitals (the decorative piece on the top of the column), Scanalatore is a machine that make scanalature, the scanalature are the grooves on the column surface, so are a machine that make the grooves (hard to explain ^^).

An another importang thing that i forget to say is the translation of Capital (in italian Capitello), in english sound like the capital of a state but in this game this word always mean this piece of the column

I'm doing my best to spend 15-30 minutes a day on this but it really is a HUGE amount of text. This is going to take me a while. :wink:

@Vanya, if you like, I could start translating from the bottom and work my way up until we meet somewhere halfway.

The most important thing is to play and finish the game first or you can't understand some things.
The translation file have a strange structure:

-All the dialogues
-All the global script things (inventory item and characters interactions)
-And room by room (room events and hotspot interaction)

So if you start from the bottom and you don't know the last chapters of the game, some phrase can be really hard to understand.

Indeed, as well as some names or objects that can be translated in several ways (synonyms) will be translated differently by different people and you would end up with a character suddenly changing names halfway through the game. So as much work as it is, I don't think splitting it would be wise.

Indeed, splitting the translation job to more then one people isn't advisable.
