Dang it, if only I was 18...

16 year old Japanese native speaker going through :P

Summer break now so if I have the chance to work with it I'd have time of about 2-3h or more per day.
Well just in case ;)

CCP Shiny a open a Sticky forum post by language could be a great way of helping in the translation of EVE to spanish there is a very active comunity of PPL that i'm sure can help out with terms that are not that clear on the best way to translate.


Let me tell what happened when I was fan-translating a (large) game mod... There were those 5 fan-translators... who were given roughly similar text files... and ended up quarreling about who had made the best translation of certain words which were very common and appeared in every file.

Multiply that by n translators, add a forum, mix in some LatAm crackpots, drop a pinch of Spanish regionalists and you will get a bloody mess and no translation. Lol


BTW: pulse laser = láser de impulsos (not to be mistaken with a pulsating laser or láser de pulsos, láser estroboscópico); beam laser = láser continuo. Those devices already exist and also there is a translation to their names.



It all depends how you manage your social collective workflow, Facebook translated it site to all spoken languages with less than 5 ppl on the job, just with social collective help. Hispanic community is not that big in EVE we all know each other or are just 1 degree away from someone, CCP knows what there doing and most Spanish speakers are looking FW to this, the right pieces are there. Detaills on specific translations is not the main step ATM is getting a work flow going that delivers results.

At the end Betas will come out to test out. Again CCP good call on this.

There is no shame in saying you don't know something, and there is no glory in keeping knolege to yourself.

Right, at this moment everyone who sent an application should have received a reply in one form or another! If you have not received a response, please re-send your mail.

I also want to re-state the below:

- No, it doesn't mean we are doing EVE France, Spain or Italy. It means we have DUST France, Spain and Italy already and that we don't discount the possibility of doing EVE France, Spain or Italy one day. In fact, it doesn't indicate any change in strategy for our localized clients for any language. We have always had freelancers for some languages to work on some of the content, some content is outsourced to big translation houses and some work is done internally.


However, I am certainly interested in all discussions regarding community localization and the periphery topics so I am reading the discussion in here with interest :)

I have sent my CV and a short application letter almost two weeks ago now, with no answer so far. Could you please take care of it? Or, if you do not need any more translators, it would still be nice to get some kind of reply informing me so.

If you sent it before my post where I said everyone should have received a reply, please re-send it. If it was after that, then you will get a reply - everyone will.

Hi all,

I must admit I got a lot more responses than expected, which makes the entire process longer than I had anticipated. However, I will certainly get back to everyone and I hope to make it before the end of the month.

I realize this is frustrating for those that went through the effort of sending an application and I apologize for that.

Hi,

We are not accepting new translations for French and Russian at this point but are moving to the next stage there.

Thank you for your applications so far!

If you have submitted the first part of the test for French, you should have received the second part today. If you did not, please send an e-mail.

Is this closed already? I read you were taking applications until Sept 20th, but the topic is still open and sticky, so I thought I'd chime in.

Italian EVE (not DUST) player here! I'd love to help, so let me know if you are still searching.

Need more well-formatted linking.
