Translation File Information


Recommended Posts

EXCEPTIONS:

 

x#xanlt.tra

 

comes up as every single line different in WinMerge. There are a number of lines that appear almost identical, but scattered throughout there are some changes (and there are additons at the end - the original file ended at @1431, the new one ends at @1525).

 

The person assigned to this file will need to do a manual file comparison themselves, and to be safe probably needs to start over.

Changes:

p#fw2700.tra

OLD< @166  = ~Sir Ajantis, I must protest! I will not deny that I have an eye for an attractive lad... but both of them are on you now, as you are such a fine specim-a-a-a-n... Besides, do not your knightly principles say you need a damsel in distress?~

> @225  = ~I did so only with the true intention to support and help my leader... who also tends to be a very special person...~
> @226  = ~As much as I appreciate being able to help, I have the slight suspicion this box might actually be filled with stones... I will carry it a little longer, but my helpfulness in that matter should end eventually, as this is slowing me down unnecessarily.~
> @227  = ~My lady! There is nothing "going on"... from my side, at least.~

> @236  = ~I assure you, that my fighting abilities are unharmed by the weight I carry, lady <CHARNAME>. But I agree with you, that there are situations where it could be a hindrance.~
> @237  = ~<CHARNAME>, it is a great pity we didn't keep my family shield. I can only hope you have a sincere reason for its absence.~
> @238  = ~Oh, Ajantis, I am sorry! Of course this shield means a lot to you. We'll get it back as soon as possible.~

The person assigned to this file will need to do a manual file comparison themselves, and to be safe probably needs to start over.

 

Mostly just a few typos here and there. Don't worry about it, I suspect it'll be good enough as it is - four new lovetalks is all you really need to translate.

Kulyok's analysis confirmed -

 

manual line by line check shows mostly spelling, grammar, and such - nothing that fundamentally changes the meanings of lines for translations until you get to the new lines.

Please dont forget about this. We are nearing the completion of the translation, I'd really need the rest of the changes so i can modify the files accordingly :p

 

Also, can you please post as a new post instead of editing? that way it'd clearer for me :p

 

Thaaaanks!

Between v12 and v14, there vere very minor adjustments in the existing content, and no lines were shuffled around the place. So you just need to check that your translated files have the same length/number of lines as English ones(and make sure that you've translated the latest additions, such as Bardic Reputation adjustment or Xan's last lovetalks).

There are some files that are a nightmare, for example the setup... id REALLY like some help with that one...

 

And others that dont appear here yet, like addial ?

 

Some others change what its said in the line, so its not only a matter of having the same amount :p

 

Thx!

I'll take a look -

 

the changes with setup.tra and the _tmp.tra series, I will have to do an explination for you (and it will be easier if those simply get a whole new translation) I will take a look and see when i can get you a breakdown of changes, but for may of them, look for the "X#" and "P#" versions of older files - ADDIAL -> X#ADDIAL, etc.

Hello,

 

The d'Oghmatiques have beginning the french translation of BG1 NPC Project. I guess you recieve a pm from Kratos in this way, cmorgan. :help:

 

We didn't succeed in contacting Mathrim Cauthon who began the translation two years ago and then disappeared. So we're starting from the beginning.

 

----------------------------------

 

I've just one question : Does someone identify all the intervenings per .tra files ?

Because, even if it's easy for some .tra (like x#viconia.tra which owns its .d file), it's more difficult for others. I saw there's a BG1NPCVarIndex.html in documents' directory, but I'm wondering if it's useful for translators.

 

Can someone tell me in which .tra files Viconia talks for example ?

Unfortunately, due to the way the project has been built over time, there is no good way to do this :help: I am afraid that the strings are liberally mixed together.

 

The good news is that there are not likely to be big .tra changes ever again, and there are ways of handling this issue. One is to use the Untraify feature of WeiDU, and be able to see untraified .d files, so you can see who is talking. Another is more painful, opening code vs tra file and jumping back and forth - and I believe the third uis to look at the .tra tools that ClanDLAN has set up.

 

Which reminds me, I need to update this thread. Not tonight, i am afraid...

Trep seems to do the job, and it matches the ClanDLAN tool (though you will want to investigate which one will feel more comfortable to you).

 

I appreciate any community work on this, because it is a bit of a challenge, in terms of sheer volume. 3.54 MB in 126 .tra files uncompressed (on a 260GB FAT system drive, it works out to 6.03 MB).

Sorry folks - more .tra changes. The bad news - I can't do much about it. The good news, the public v15 about to ship has a lockdown on .tra changes except for spelling from now until eternity. So you can count v15 as a completed set of .tras. Any further coding changes necessitating adding or moving dialogue will be resolved by either removing the content in question or coding around it using small independent files as mini-patches.

 

Immortality, if you want to, you can contact me privately, and we can set up an online meeting this summer (or a series of emails) to assist in salvaging all your hard work so far. Most of the changes we made were simple movement from one file to another, and we should be able to keep what you have done. Others involve finding any .tra strings that are journal entries and moving them from

 

@0 = ~My text goes here~

 

to

 

@0 = ~My Text

 

My text goes here~

 

so that journal titles show up correctly.
