(Special thanks to Shilorius, who is working on the German translation, I borrowed a little from his main post, it just looked so nice! All quotes are from his post) This is the comunity project to translate our favorite game into the Spanish language!
Seeing a community driven German translation going up made me wonder about the languages. After chatting with some of the devs, and understanding that they really don't have the time or resources to do that right now, I figured it was time for the community to give back.
The biggest problem with this translation is the tightrope walk between a good sounding translation and keeping the translation as close as possible to the English original.
I appreciate any and all help. We can only achieve the accuracy and solidness of a good translation with hard work and community input.
I have the current version in my Dropbox, I did it this way so it will be easier for me to keep track of those of us working on the translation. If you'd like to participate you can either pm me or just reply to this post. I will reply to any and all posts or PM, please make sure to include your email if you'd like to particpate so I can send you the invite to the dropbox.
How to make the translation work in game: 1. copy the file to the folder ...\SteamApps\Common\Natural Selection 2\ns2\gamestrings 2. delete the old deDE.txt file 3. rename the new file to deDE.txt 4. start the game and type "option locale deDE" (without the " of course) in the console 5. Exit the game and start again
**Note** If it is plausible and doesn't sound like sh**, we will also try working with some of the voice acting. So any native speakers with an excellent accent and an amazing microphone and sound room would be appreciated in this project =)
