Democracy 2 italian translation


#1

Hi all, I’ve discovered this game thanks to an italian magazine of videogames, it’s a wonderful game! I want to translate it on italian, but…how can I do?

If you can help me teaching how works language files, how create a “traduction patch”…

If you want to translate you’ll have to adapt “Positech\Democracy2\data\Strings.ini”

an example in the file :

In your case it should become

on a sidenote: keep a copy of the file you adapt, so that if a problem comes along you dont have to reinstall the game

Everything in the game has a ‘name’ and a ‘guiname’ which normally comes in a column after it. The name MUST stay the same, but the guiname gets translated, as do descriptions. I’m not in a position to get translations arranged right now, because I’m not sure about future publishing plans yet.

Ok… I’ve done a first look on csv and txt files, and there are many description to translate :smiley:

Ok, how I can contact you? I don’t know so good phpBB (i hate phpBB, MyBB is the best :stuck_out_tongue: ), but seems to me that there isn’t Personal Messages…Can you add me to your MSN contacts?


#6

Done!
Waiting…


#7

Ops, Can you readd me, the msn address was wrong XD


#8

ok, we’ve met… translation started :wink:


#9

Damn…there is no method to add words with accents?
All latin languages have large use of them…

This isn’t the same thing, but, it’s worth mentioning that one thing I noticed when dabbling around with Cyrillic is that sometimes the application you use to add different stylings needs to have the option/additional keys enabled(For example, I use OpenOffice and it had to be messed with significantly)? Anyway, best of luck!
