Translations for v10

Recommended Posts

Fixpack 10 features a number of new or altered strings that are relevant for translations. With the exception of @156, all strings differ in a few numbers. Fixing them should be straightforward, since you can simply take the existing string in your language and alter the corresponding numbers. @156 differ in one or two sentences and can also be adapted from the existing string. The original string number (from a ToB installation) is provided in all cases, to make it easier for you.

 

There is plenty of time until Fixpack 10 is due.

@156 = ~Teleport Field (Alteration)
Level: 4
Range: Visual sight of caster
Duration: 1 turn
Casting Time: 4
Area of Effect: 30' radius
Saving Throw: None

With this spell, the wizard may create a random teleportation effect as far as the wizard can see. All enemies caught in the area of effect are randomly teleported for the duration of the spell. This spell is best used against multiple enemies, serving to confuse them, and allowing the wizard to concentrate on activating his or her defenses.~ []

@179 = ~Strong Arm +2
This massive bow was the property of the ranger Bearpaw, who reportedly received it from a strangely benevolent ogre.  The reason for the gift was never discussed, but he earned the respect of everyone he met, and likely befriended the creature while patrolling the Cloakwood Forest.  Bearpaw could draw back the bow without the slightest effort, but when he died it was bequeathed to his wife and sons, and not a one could draw the string even halfway.  They eventually sold it to a merchant heading South.

This was the weapon of Thorvin Dukal, one of seven self-proclaimed Dragonslayers who spent years railing against what they called "an insidious dragon infestation that threatened Faerun."

The Dragonslayers met their match in a cantankerous ancient red who slew the entire group in an epic battle.  This weapon did not end up in the beast's hoard however, as the creature returned to its lair to recuperate and when it emerged the field of combat was well scavenged.

This staff was the culmination of a cycle of seasons in which Cernd meditated on his role within nature.  His perch for this personal journey was next to a sapling, a young oak that was a particular interest of study; it seemed odd, and yet somehow wonderfully ordered.  At the coming of spring Cernd examined it one last time, and it came loose in his hands, a living staff, granted as boon from nature herself.  It has grown to fit his grip, and few others may wield it.

@199 = ~Staff of Air
This staff seems to draw from eleven artistic traditions, though tied less to the forest than is usually customary.  It was apparently designed to control air elementals, being able to summon one as a servant to the wielder, and potentially destroying creatures of the same type in a single blow.

The simplest of staff weapons is the quarterstaff, a length of wood six to nine feet in length.  High quality quarterstaves are made of stout oak and are shod with metal at both ends.

Bala was a foul-tempered prince of a gully dwarf clan, which was enslaved by a cruel elven mage in Thesk. Though Bala managed to escape the more cowardly traits of his race he was even more filthy and obnoxious than the average gully dwarf. Sickened of his enslavement, Bala crept into the mage's lair and cracked the elf's skull open. Although rumor has it that it was the dwarf's stench that overcame the mage, it was, in fact, his enchanted axe that dispelled the elf's magical defenses. It is obvious from the poor workmanship that Bala himself crafted the axe. The mystery lies in where its power originates. After a lengthy career of mage-slaying, Bala died, never having revealed his secret to those who were willing to risk a lice infestation by approaching him. Some say that the axe was powered by Bala's intense hatred of wizards. The axe gives the owner the ability to dispel magic once a day.

Level: 4
Range: 0
Duration: 1 round/level
Casting Time: 4
Area of Effect: 5-foot-radius sphere
Saving Throw: None

This spell creates a faintly shimmering magical sphere around the caster that prevents any 1st-, 2nd-, or 3rd-level spell effects from penetrating (i.e., the area of effect of any such spells does not include the area of the minor globe of invulnerability). This includes innate abilities and effects from devices. However, any type of spell can be cast out of the magical sphere, and these pass from the caster of the globe to their subject without affecting the minor globe. Fourth and higher level spells are not affected by the globe. The globe can be brought down by forms of magical attack such as Spellstrike and Pierce Magic.~

Level: 4
Range: Visual sight of caster
Duration: 1 turn
Casting Time: 4
Area of Effect: 30' radius
Saving Throw: None

With this spell, the wizard may create a random teleportation effect as far as the wizard can see. All enemies caught in the area of effect are randomly teleported for the duration of the spell. This spell is best used against multiple enemies, serving to confuse them, and allowing the wizard to concentrate on activating his or her defenses.~ []

@159 = ~Find Familiar
(Conjuration/Summoning)
Level: 1
Range: n/a
Duration: Special
Casting Time: 1 round
Area of Effect: 1 familiar
Saving Throw: Special

This spell enables the caster to attempt to summon a familiar to act as his aide and companion. Familiars are typically small creatures. A creature acting as a familiar can benefit a wizard, conveying its sensory powers to its master, conversing with him, and serving as a guard/scout/spy as well. A wizard can have only one familiar at a time, and he has no control over what sort of creature answers the summoning, if any come at all.
(Note: This spell may only be cast by the protagonist.)

The creature is always more intelligent than others of its type (typically by 2 or 3 Intelligence points), and its bond with the wizard confers upon it an exceptionally long life.

The wizard has an empathic link with the familiar and can issue it mental commands.

The caster receives half the familiar's total hit points as bonus hit points. However the caster must take care to treat his familiar well, for if the familiar should die, the caster loses the bonus hit points and half the familiar's hit points again as damage. Also when a familiar dies, the caster loses 1 point of constitution PERMANENTLY.

Example: A mage has 12 hit points and casts find familiar. The imp summoned has 18 hit points, so the caster gets a bonus of 9 hit points. The caster now has 21 hit points. If the familiar dies the caster loses those 9 hit points (putting him back at 12), 1 point of constitution permanently (which may cause additional hit point loss), and takes 9 damage.

Here is a list of the familiars that the player receives according to alignment:

Cette arme était celle de Thorvin Dukal, l'un des sept autoproclamés 'Tueurs de dragons' qui passèrent des années à vitupérer contre ce qu'ils appelaient "une infestation insidieuse de dragons menaçant Féérune". Thorvin fit enchanter son arme à grand frais et s'en servi assez souvent, quoiqu'en matière de dragons, seul un jeune blanc ait péri sous ses coups. Les Tueurs de dragons tombèrent finalement sur un ancien et grincheux dragon rouge qui les tua tous au cours d'un épique combat. Cependant, l'arme ne finit pas dans le butin de la créature, car celle-ci rentra dans son antre pour se remettre de ses blessures, et quand elle en ressortit, le champ de bataille avait été consciencieusement pillé.

On dit que Torm fait apparaître ces objets pendant les périodes de grands troubles, les confiant à ses prêtres qui soignent les blessés, les malades, et les empoisonnés. Il ne faut cependant pas le tenir pour acquis, car quoique très utile, son enchantement est fugitif. Il faut l'utiliser avec la plus grande précaution.

@197 = ~Bâton du Mage

Quoi que très rare, ce type de bâton est parfaitement lié à l'image du lanceur de sort. C'est l'un des outils les plus puissants dont un mage puisse disposer, la culmination d'enchantement complexes et d'études interminables. Celui-ci est efficace en combat de mêlée, peut rendre invisible, offre une protection contre les charmes et le mal. Il peut aussi piéger un sort, lancer une combinaison de boule de feu et d'éclair magique, et dissiper la magie. C'est la quintessence d'un objet de mage.

@198 = ~Bâton de foudre et tonnerre +2

Certaines histoires racontent comment ces bâtons auraient poussé dans la végétation autour des bosquets aux druides quand la forêt était menacée. De folles légendes, mais qui ne doivent pas nous faire ignorer que ce bâton est un outil puissant. Il absorbe l'énergie des tempêtes, et il peut déclencher un coup de tonnerre capable de renverser les adversaires chaque fois qu'il est utilisé en combat. Il peut aussi projeter des éclairs, et si les circonstance le permettent, il peut invoquer une tempête de foudre pour réduire les ennemis en poussière. Certaines de ses capacités sont limitées par le nombre de charges.

@199 = ~Bâton de l'Air

L'aspect de ce bâton semble venir des traditions artistiques des elfes, bien qu'il soit moins lié à la forêt que ce qui est courant. Il a apparemment été conçu pour contrôler les élémentaux de l'air, étant capable d'en invoquer pour servir son porteur, et potentiellement de détruire d'un seul coup les créatures de ce type. Quand c'est nécessaire, il peut aussi émettre un nuage de gaz qui plonge tous ceux se trouvant dans la zone d'effet dans un profond sommeil. Certaines de ses capacités sont limitées par le nombre de charges.

@200 = ~Bâton de la Terre

Lié au Plan élémentaire de Terre, ce bâton a pu être façonné par une ancienne secte druidique. Il peut invoquer un élémental de terre, bien qu'il ait également le potentiel pour détruire ces créatures d'un seul coup, ce qui est peut-être un indice de la difficulté qu'il y a à les contrôler. Il peut aussi libérer une personne de l'emprise de la terre en transmutant la pierre en chair. Certaines de ses capacités sont limitées par le nombre de charges.

@201 = ~Bâton du Feu

Ce bâton porte une rune antique qui pourrait constituer un lien avec les mages de la lointaine Halruaa, mais rien n'est sûr. Tirant son énergie du Plan élémentaire du Feu, il peut s'entourer d'un bouclier de feu qui endommage les assaillants, invoquer un élémental de feu sous le contrôle de son porteur, et peut potentiellement aspirer toute l'énergie d'un élémental de feu qu'il touche, le détruisant instantanément. Certaines de ses capacités sont cependant limitées par le nombre de charges.

@210 = ~Hache de Bala, Tueuse de mages :

 

Bala était le prince au caractère exécrable d'un clan de nains. Il avait été capturé et réduit en esclavage par un magicien elfe de Thesk. Moins couard, mais plus malpropre et sale que ceux de sa race, Bala en eut vite assez de l'esclavage. Il se glissa furtivement dans l'étude du magicien, et lui ouvrit promptement le crâne d'un coup de hache. La rumeur prétend que c'est l'odeur pestilentielle qu'il dégage qui a achevé le mage, mais il s'agit plutôt de la hache enchantée de Bala. De par sa facture rudimentaire, il est évident qu'elle a été créée par Bala lui-même. Par contre, personne ne sait d'où en émane la magie. Après une longue carrière de tueur de mages, Bala mourut, sans avoir révélé à quiconque, même à ceux assez téméraires pour risquer d'attraper des puces en l'approchant, l'origine de cet enchantement. Certains suggèrent que c'est la haine de Bala pour les magiciens qui en est à l'origine. Cette hache donne à son porteur la capacité de dissiper la magie une fois par jour.

could you send me or post here the files to translate, please?

If you click the 'Show' button in the OP, the strings that need to be translated will be revealed.

The actual file can be viewed here, but a large portion of it has already been translated, so doing it that way would involved a lot of manual labour sorting out which strings are missing from the Spanish tra.

I've completed the German translation for all current strings, up to and including @215. So as of RC3, the German setup.tra I'm submitting is equivalent to the English file. From now on, if we are adding more strings in the future, I'll do my best to instantaneously provide the additional strings in German.

 

German setup.tra.rar

 

To other German translators: Besides adding the new content, I also went through the trouble of rechecking every single of the existing strings. I touched up a lot of them, but it's mostly minor corrections and improving consistency.

 

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

 

Now the fun part. While updating the German translation, I found dozens of mistakes in the English setup.tra. Here we go:

 

- My notepad counts 14 instances of "THACO" that I'm not gonna list individually. Should be "THAC0".

 

- 109, 110, 111, 112, 113: line begins with a blank

 

- 146: then >> than

 

- 153: The image of the wearer become blurred >> becomes blurred

 

- 154: the comment preceding that string says "originally string #12164", should be #12146

 

- 155: the comment preceding that string says "originally string #12164", should be #8064

 

- 159: Find Familiar description says Saving Throw: Special, but the effect called by the spell (spwi123.spl) certainly has no saving throw, so should't this be None?

 

- 159, 170, 171, 174, 175: 6 instances of "Can cast cast" >> "Can cast"

 

- 165: Description of the ToB imp's poison attack says "save vs. death OR DIE". This is BS of course. Tested it in-game, it turns out the imp is NOT a secret instakilling machine. The relevant item (imp's attack) is impclaw.itm. The item only has the poison effect. What's more though is that this effect has duration = 0, meaning in-game, when the opponent fails the saving throw, the "Poisoned" string is displayed, but that's it. There is no poison damage (due to the lack of duration), and certainly no instakill. Leaves me wondering what we should do about it. Any ideas? In any case, if we activate some poison damage, we additionally have to add the appropriate display portrait icon effect to impclaw's melee header as well, since this is currently missing.

 

- 167: excess word at the end

 

- 181: must making >> must make

 

- 183: protection of still remains >> protection still remains

 

- 185: excess linefeed at the end

 

- 188: then >> than; after the latest revision, the bow25 now has thac0 +4 instead of +3

 

- 197: is thoroughly linked of the image >> to the image; as noted previously, the speed factor is 1, and the description needs to reflect that

 

- 198: summon a lighting storm >> lightning storm

 

- 199: eleven >> elven

 

- 204: remove "not usable by: thief"

 

- 207: excess linefeed at the end

 

- 208: The Harmonium is an faction >> a faction

 

- And finally, after CamDawg's valid intervention, string 209 is no different from the original, since Bruenor's Axe does 1D8+3 damage now. The setting of "STRING_SET 1764 @209" can be removed. Maybe remove the whole string as well?

 

 

Additionally, I'd suspect that gtu.tra and gtul.tra share some of these mistakes, so they would need to be weeded out there as well.

- 109, 110, 111, 112, 113: line begins with a blank

This is not an error. It's one of the game's conventions. Also, there are at least 2 million strings with trailing newlines; fixing the current two won't help.

 

I've fixed everything else but this:

- 159: Find Familiar description says Saving Throw: Special, but the effect called by the spell (spwi123.spl) certainly has no saving throw, so should't this be None?

 

- 165: Description of the ToB imp's poison attack says "save vs. death OR DIE". This is BS of course. Tested it in-game, it turns out the imp is NOT a secret instakilling machine.

In any case, if we activate some poison damage, we additionally have to add the appropriate display portrait icon effect to impclaw's melee header as well, since this is currently missing.

 

Edit: the changes to @188 and @197 will need to be made to the translations when they are included.

I've added the French, Chinese and Russian translations. Edit: also German, sorry.

 

I've fixed the THAC0, Speed Factor and strref-comment errors in the French and Russian translations, as applicable.

 

I did not make any alterations to the Chinese translations for fear of fouling up the character encoding. The translation for Simplified Chinese seems to use Microsoft's code page 936, but the one for Traditional Chinese does not seem to be properly expressible as either code page 950, big5 or big5-hkscs. Possibly there's some stupid hack on Microsoft's part ("code page 951") that prevents non-native systems from getting it right.

MephistoSatanDevil, if you want to post an updated translation, I will be happy to include it.

Concerning the texts in the final v10 release, I have 3 issues to report:

 

1. In the final version of the tp2 of v10 it still says:

ACTION_IF ("%LANGUAGE%" STRING_COMPARE_CASE "english" = 0) THEN BEGIN // english only for now

 STRING_SET  6526 @215 // flame tongue: descript missing thac0 bonuses, +3 bonuses are against cold-using not cold/fire
 STRING_SET  7345 @214 // kondar: descript not mentioning extra thac0 vs. shapeshifters

END

 

But when I submitted the German setup.tra three posts earlier I explicitly said I've translated all lines there are, all the way up to @215. For the German setup of v10, these new strings are now available in German but are not being used yet due to the check above. What gives?

 

 

2. See Github's diff stats on gtul.tra for v10: Somebody reverted the change "must making" -> "must make" back to "must making". Is there a reason for that?

 

 

3. English setup.tra in the final v10 release: What the hell? Most of the errors I posted above, which were then corrected in the file by Wisp, are now present again? What happened?

Okay then. Let's also use this as an opportunity to settle the remaining issues:

 

I've fixed everything else but this:

- 159: Find Familiar description says Saving Throw: Special, but the effect called by the spell (spwi123.spl) certainly has no saving throw, so should't this be None?

 

- 165: Description of the ToB imp's poison attack says "save vs. death OR DIE". This is BS of course. Tested it in-game, it turns out the imp is NOT a secret instakilling machine. The relevant item (imp's attack) is impclaw.itm. The item only has the poison effect. What's more though is that this effect has duration = 0, meaning in-game, when the opponent fails the saving throw, the "Poisoned" string is displayed, but that's it. There is no poison damage (due to the lack of duration), and certainly no instakill. Leaves me wondering what we should do about it. Any ideas? In any case, if we activate some poison damage, we additionally have to add the appropriate display portrait icon effect to impclaw's melee header as well, since this is currently missing.

 

Edit: the changes to @188 and @197 will need to be made to the translations when they are included.

 

@159

At least I can't detect spwi123.spl having any kind of saving throw attached. Therefore it seems to me we should really change the description to "Saving Throw: None". Maybe this "Saving Throw: Special" is somehow supposed to complement the description text saying "... and he has no control over what sort of creature answers the summoning, if any come at all." Although I don't know what exactly is meant by that, either.

 

@165

No new insights here. As I said earlier, impclaw.itm doesn't slay opponents who miss the saving throw. Its only melee ability effect is a poison effect with zero duration. All ToB familiars receive mild improvements over their SoA versions, such as changing the melee damage from 1d3 to 1d6 (the ferret) or gaining the ability to drain dexterity (the quasit), for instance. I don't think being able to kill an opponent like a vorpal sword is in line with your typical familiar's ability. Interestingly, the SoA imp's attack (imp.itm) already has the poison effect but with zero probability and zero duration, and for ToB (impclaw.itm) they "activated" the poison effect by changing the probability to 100%, but they left the duration at zero. My idea would be to let the ToB imp do some actual poison damage by changing the duration to non-zero.

 

@188

As of v10, the generic longbow +3 (bow25.itm) already has its +4 tha0 bonus instead of +3, thanks to the "bows are a mess" revision here and here. Description needs to reflect that.

 

@197

The Staff of the Magi has speed factor 1 already as of v10, initially thanks to CamDawg's intervention, which was then supported by my explanation of two-handed items' speed factors. Description needs to reflect that.

 

New

Minor correction: In the English setup.tra, some paragraphs *within* a description end with an unnecessary blank (e.g. @159). These could be removed.
