That's easy: - You say "I don't want you to do this" and I'll stop working on it. - You say "Thanks, less work for me". - You say "Go ahead, but I'll send in my own translation regardless". By the way, I started working on a translation before your last conversation with jastey here started.

Hi Bloodtitan.

 

Surely less work for me. Though I may eventually work on them later and send you as well.

Pre-proofreading TS25MiniMod!

 

In my todo list only Trovador REO is left, besides redoing from scratch Breagar and Questpack. And Knights Kit for Kreso.

 

I did not notice any new mod lacking english translation introduced in BWP 14.3. Am I right?

:crazy:  eh... not an easy one (as well as Rukrakia).

 

It has to be proofread first.

Gertwenger, who's proofreading several mods, is likely to leave on 29th and be away for some months due to job, with no internet connection (though he's taking notebook with him to continue proofreading).

 

Though, if someone offers helping out:

 

Mods to proofread: Severian, Er'vonyrah/Sovereign, Les Exiles de Lunargent/Devin, Macholy's Tweak Pack, Derat's Kits, Rukrakia, TS25MiniMod.

Offtopic: It's nice to get a translation for Macholy's Tweak Pack but noone can download this mod at the moment because the source is down.

Yes I know that Bloodtitan... though no fault of mine :lol2:

 

Tweak Pack, as well as other mods, is available for proofreading since 2013 (Tweak Pack April 2013,  Er'vonyrah February 2013 and so on)... but no one volunteered to proofread

 

Another example is Avi Maya... available for proofreading since March 2013... made into BWP Textpack English 14.3 because Gertwenger proofread it.

Off-topic: I don't remember whether it's been you or Echo saying something like Questpack has a medieval german taste (about language)

 

Though... really, there exists no such thing as medieval german.

 

Old High German, Middle High German, Early New High German.

Old Saxon, Middle Low German, Low German.

 

In late middle ages low german lost prestige to Early New High German to evolve into modern german.

Errm... that was no linguistic term, just a description that the language in this mod is overly formal and polite, sometimes retrogressive in terms of style. And that the translation should transport this as good as a non-native can.

Or you find a native speaker who is teaching the other language ;)

By current BWP 11.4, Jarls BGT Adventure Pack has made into Textpack English.

 

And some patches don't apply.

Hi, can anyone post the direct download link for the English-version of Jarl's mod here?  I have run around the web but no luck.
