If you could give a word count per mod needed, it might spark some interest. I might go through a few hundred words for free (if time allows), but if it's a few thousand, I might require scotch donations.

If people ask for translations, I would think they should be interested  (with or without a word count per mod).

 

However...

 

Severian: 174.852

 

TS25MiniMod: 71.048

 

Derats Ogre: 12.403

 

Trovador REO: 144.797

 

Wedges BGT Adventure Pack: 30.509

 

Macholy's Tweak Pack: 27.545

 

Er'vonyrah/Sovereign: 56.620

What kind of proofreading is needed?

 

The only language I know is English, so if you mean proofreading for accurate translation there's nothing I can do, but if you're just looking for English grammar and scansion then I might be able to help.

For Severian, TS25MiniMod, Derats Ogre, Trovador REO, Wedges BGT Adventure Pack and Macholy's Tweak Pack english is enough. There is only to check for grammar, mistypes etc... give some sentences a better sounding, eventually.

 

While for Er'vonyrah/Sovereign I prefer and need accurate because my polish is not that fluent and there might be translation errors.

Okay, then. I'm happy to proofread Derats Ogre if that's what you're looking for.

@Nightfarer, do you still need Derats Ogre proofread?

I would volunteer for longer mods like the TS25 Minimod and Macholy's Tweak Pack, but I only have a little time because of the Easter break.

Hey Miloch! I'm curious, how much scotch does it take to finally get rid of the damned non-unicode symbols in IA? I might start crowdfunding or somesuch ;)

I've no particular preference. I'm Spanish and I'm fluent in English (fully bilingual). I own the full BG series and PS:T, but not IWD. So whatever fits me better.

Hmmm well the left over mods dont need translating-per-se, they need proofreading, since they are not translated very well. 

This is a dialogue file from Ts25mini mod, a quest mod:

https://www.FastShar...load/dialog.tra

 

its big, try taking a whack at it. It would be enough to make the dialogue make sense. However, I tend to try to make it better as well so it will gel with the rest of the game.... obviously the "betterness" is purely subjective.

hey Gertwenger,

1) how many of the mods in your signature were released?
2) Also, Is Sovereign "done"?


Edited by Sergio, 12 July 2019 - 01:58 AM.

Low hung brow, dazed look on your face..... It appears that you are correct, my friend. You are indeed a complete imbecile.

About TS25MiniMod, the first episodes of the big file, are translated by me but the last 2 by some Japanese native speakers who gave a hand in translating into English

Was the translation for Sovereign done "manually", or was Google Translate "used"?

I'm looking forward to playing both mods :)

I translated it by hand and this was the main reason I was hoping for a native polish speaker to proofread it.
