Hi all,

@alastrim:
The pt_BR translation has been updated. Thanks a lot :)

@natsuki:
The pt_ES translation was declared with the pt_SP file name, but with the inner pt_ES language translation.
Also, the encoding of the file doesn't seem to be UTF-8, as declared.
Could you tell me which encoding is your system default, for instance?
Thanks in advance.
I've uploaded the file with declaring the iso-8859-2 since it seemed to most close to me.
Be sure to use poedit that permit you not to bother with such technical details next time :)


@hal9000 and @Dark_Mage:
Thanks in advance :) :)

@Matt:
What prevented you from translating? Need help?

Thanks to all for the effort made.

Best regards.
Matt

Lol. If it's linked in whatever way to German, forget about it!
I've lost quite everything I've learned long ago. ;)

Tip for later: Live one year or so in Germany ;)

Best regards.

Regards.

Hi Alons,

I've PMed you (and Natsuki) about the Spanish translation.
(There is something unclear about Natsuki's translation name, not fitting the iso language against the provided country:

Hi,
i had used a text editor :P
-> :lol: That's the main problem. Consider using poedit next time. ;)
It will get rid from technical problem for you.

Best regards.

P.S. : To everyone involved, the pt_ES.po file is as I suspected a spanish translation. Hence, I'll merge it with the es.po file asap.

Best regards.

That seems to be part of the help text (/help in chat). "/whisper" should not be translated because when the player enters the translated word it won't work, but "<msg>" should be translated to "<the word message in your language>".

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

Well, better late than never, here comes my sucky german translation:

http://weltenbrand.org/po_de.po (mh... seems my tmw.de host kinda died...poor stats)

I would call it pre-RC because this translation was started 4 years ago and 2 other people besides me tinkered around with and I haven't played the game in years, so I don't really know where all the strings belong to, so it may be a bit awkward ingame.

Would be great if someone could provide me a win32 setup RC before the release so that I can check if the translation actually makes sense.

And now, time to start a effort to provide consistent translations.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the de translation.

Even though the release is out. I guess it's not out of the question to bring a 0.5.1 when some feedback from the users will come after release.
I'll merge the file in the 0.5 branch asap and merge to master, so you can use a nightlie to test it.

Best regards.
