Author Topic: [AGS HELP WANTED] Commissar's Contrapasso - still looking for Spanish and German translators  (Read 1381 times)

Hi, recently released the game Commissar's Contrapasso, a dialogue-heavy adventure game set in WW2,
and I'd like to have the game reach a broader audience by having it translated in several languages, with French and German being my top priority.

How heavy exactly? How much text are we talking about?

It's a lot of text, I'd guess about 26 pages and around 14 050 words. If you want to take on the translation, which language do you want to translate the game into?

Also, I'm currently using this font, please let me know if there are any language-specific letters not present in the font that would be necessary.

I speak German but I doubt I'd do a good job. But yes, at least for German all necessary letters are present in that font.

That's good to hear!
I'm sure that if you speak German as your native language it will be good enough for this game, and you can always ask someone else to proof-read the script if you are unsure.
Are you still interested in translating the game?

Sure, a Spanish translation would be great. Have you looked at the font in the link, is there any necessary letters missing?
Otherwise, I'd be grateful for your help.

Hi everyone,

I'm a french native speaker and bilingual in english. If you may.

So let me know, I can have some spare time to help you now.

Not much time for gaming neither creating, but keeping an eye on everything :)

Since insomnia212 recently told me he didn't have time to translate, I'm asking if any other AGSer want to translate the game into Spanish.
I'm also still looking for anyone willing to translate the game into German.
