do you want to translate TEM to your own language ?

General discussions about the 1st version of Tennis Elbow Manager

do you want to translate TEM to your own language ?

Postby manutoo » 01 Apr 2007, 08:02

Hello,

if you want to translate TEM to your own language, download this pack :
http://www.managames.com/download.php?l ... _trans.zip [Last Updated November 11th 2015]

The most important file to translate is "lang_English.Txt" ; it's also the longest, it contains all the text displayed in the game.
A bit of explanations about the format :
- For each line, on left, it's the code : never change it; after, following on right, there's the text used in the game
- everything after a // is comment, and is not used in the game (it's supposed to help people translating the text), so don't translate it
- \n means go to next line
- \xx is an Ascii code (ex: \32 = a space)
- %s will be replaced by a string by the game

"English.nsh" is also a text file, used during the installation process. Translate only the text inside the quotes.

Lastly, to translate En_OrderFullVersion.html & En_QuickStart.html, it'd be better to have a HTML editor, but if you don't have one, you can copy to a txt file, and I'll copy back to html.

It needs around 8 and 11 hours to translate "lang_English.Txt", and around 1 or 2 hours to translate all the other files.

To test the resulting lang_English.Txt (that you can rename to lang_NewLanguage.Txt ), you have to create the subdir "Menu", and place the file in it. If you renamed it, don't forget to select the new language with the configuration tool before to launch the game.

Hello Blacky,

everything to translate is in the file above.
If you have doubt about some sentences, don't hesitate to ask me more explanations.

I'll finish it in a few days.

Right now I have problem with translating name of courts. I don't know how to translate Synthetic and Blue-Green cement, but I'll figure it out, no worry.

>> LilBall \7

it's used only by TE2006. "\7" produces a little round character, looking like a ball.

>> Tonicity

It's the ability to have a lot of energy available instantly.

Can I somehow upload this files in game, so that I can do it better?

here is another one and then this txt. file is finished

/!\ Note: accord these names with the ones used in WT_Training


so if in WT_Training I have for example this text

TrainRally Treniraj izmjene (50%% time bonus)
TrainService Treniraj servis (25%% time bonus)


Then this "Treniraj izmjene" and "Treniraj servis" must be here like this?

TrainerSkill02 Treniraj izmjene: +%s%%%%
TrainerSkill03 Treniraj servis: +%s%%%%


or

I can write it like this

TrainerSkill02 Izmjena: +%s%%%%
TrainerSkill03 Servis: +%s%%%%
[/i]



PS. now I'm waiting just for this information, everything else, (including the other 4 files) is translated

it looks ok, but you should try in the game to see if it fits well.

yup, u can ; it's explained in the 1st post :
"To test the resulting lang_English.Txt (that you can rename to lang_NewLanguage.Txt ), you have to create the subdir "Menu", and place the file in it. If you renamed it, don't forget to select the new language with the configuration tool before to launch the game."

Ok, I finished it, everything is in order (I think, maybe just .nsh file), It was quite easy and fun, I felt like I'm playing a game :D

So how can I send you this?


This .nsh file is maybe wrong, if it is just tell me what I have to do and I'll correct it :wink:

Hello,

I quickly checked everything and it seems alright.
I added the files to the game and I put it on the website.
There's something I cannot test : at the beginning of the installation, a box to let you choose your language should pop up (only when the game is not already installed). If your Windows language is Croatian, then the language selected by default should be Croatian, and if you do the installation with it, the game should be already in Croatian when you launch it.
Could you try and let me know the result ?

>> I hope that this will help.

I'm not sure I'll get tons of sales from this translation, but anyway, you should have a little surprise in your e-mail box waiting for u... ;)
