Further translation to different languages
« on: September 24, 2015, 02:33:20 AM »
Hello! I really enjoyed playing your games, especially "To The Moon" and "A Bird Story". Though, it's a kind of upsetting, that among so many languages the games are not translated to Ukrainian. I'd really like to see the games in this language and I may help you with translating it. You might ask, why the heck won't Ukrainians just play it in Russian? Well, there're some issues.

1. Not everyone in Western Ukraine speaks Russian.
2. It's a lot more pleasure for them to see the game in their native language.

You know, Ukrainian translation for games is an extremely rare one. This will really make "To The Moon" popular in the country. So, why not? "To The Moon" is a very enthusiastic indie project. So let's make it even more enthusiastic by translating it to one of the rarest video-games languages.
Art thou pale for weariness
      Of climbing heaven and gazing on the earth,
Wandering companionless
      Among the stars that have a different birth,
            And ever changing, like a joyless eye
            That finds no object worth its constancy?

Let's see what Reives thinks.

There is a surefire way to get a Ukrainian translation: All translations so far were done by volunteers, for free, in their spare time. If you feel up to it, you could try and do it yourself. But yeah, you'd have to invest quite some time into it, for free.

Of course, I am going to do it for free, I just want to see the game in Ukrainian, it will really please my eyes more than money :p But I need to be sure, that my hard work won't go in vain and the translation will be added into the actual game. And I also have friends to help me with that.

Cool! :) Maybe after you're finished translating TtM, you can help make these forums a better place (i.e, not as quiet, dark and spooky O_O )

But is it so quite? I think, after releasing "Finding Paradise", the forum will get a new life.

Always nice to have more language options available :)
All of the translations for TtM were done by fans, so it's very possible to one.
As you are probably aware of the story is very important for this game, so make sure to get it right.
If you have questions about Dreamaker, I might be able to help you (I've used Dreamaker for the German translation), make sure to check out the threads in the translation board and to use the new version of Dreamaker (4.9.1).

I also think it will be at least a bit more lively then ^^
Even if you are nothing more than a drop in a bucket...
Every drop leaves ripples.
