Italian translation and other

Postby Olimr85 » Wed Jul 04, 2007 8:32 pm

Hi all,
I stay translate the game in italian. I am at... 50% of translation, without test.
I have a questions:
1) I can continue the translation? I have your authorization? It's an AMATORIAL translation (for fun... I don't have a just word).

if yes == I continue
else == stop

return = 0


2) I have a problem with some parts:


on Mission 11 objectives

gui_mission11_objective_let_in = Let J. Arwyn and Dr. Weiss in
gui_mission11_objective_let_in2 = Let J. Arwyn and Dr. Weiss in

on Mission 13 objectives

gui_mission13_objective_go_further = Go further

Mmmh... can you write it for extensive?

on Mission 14 objectives
gui_mission14_objective_get_to_cryo = Get back to the cryo chamber
Cryogen? (it. criògena, criogènica)

3) Where is the file for editor translation?

-------------------------------Other questions & suggetions-----------------------------------------------

1) Railgun. Please no. Change it name ç__ç
Why? Because... because the first railgun is of Quake, and an other railgun can seem a copy... yes, it is a stupid common place, but more fan of Quake (and not only they) can think like this.

2) I have bought SG with Steam, but sometimes my internet connection crash. There is a way for play the game without Steam?

3) I liked the game. The story, graphics, sound, gameplay (before, I never play old-school, but this is a "manna dal cielo". fantastic!).


But. There is a but; the plot. The final conversation is much rapid, the personage not have a questions.
And if the alien have lain?
FOR ME, the end is underline respect the rest of story.


... I don't have more questions.

There isn't more add.
The game has been understimate. It merit more.

have no fear of my english, the translation is more simple respect a english speak (not this spek ).

Heh, cool. You can go ahead with the unofficial Italian translation, we're fine with it. Just make sure it says "UNOFFICIAL" somewhere in the readme files etc...


- gui_mission11_objective_let_in & in2, these are used in the Provectus mission where the player needs to go open a terminal, so that Arwyn and Weiss can enter the Provectus (then they will go to the elevator and to the top level).

- gui_mission13_objective_go_further, it just means the player needs to walk a longer distance, and just get to the end of the main hallway (or something like that, I'm not 100% sure where this was used - I agree it's a bit stupid. :) )

- gui_mission14_objective_get_to_cryo, yes, cryogen/cryogenic. It means the "freezed" Ancient pod chamber in the middle of the mission, where the last cutscene happens.

- The Editor can't be translated, unfortunately. (It's "hard-coded".)

Thanks for the comments.
