Greetings!

I hope everyone has been having a great weekend so far. Happy Thanksgiving to those in the US.

Today we bring you a quick look at what a few of our testers have been up to! We have decided to release 2.3 with a few language packs. For now, the languages we have been able to translate to are Deutsch (German), Suomi (Finnish) and Nederlands (Dutch). Below are a few examples of the translations in action!

Deutsch (By J-co and Skuzzlebutt)

Suomi (By Saunachum)

We hope to have the mod translated into a few other languages in the future. Be sure to join our Official Game Group on Steam to unlock your Part O' The Crew achievement when 2.3 releases!

    What is the achievements exactly? I can't read Finnish tongue.gif
    What do you need to do in 11 seconds? Kill three enemies?

    Also: Why aren't the kill messages completely transparent?

    "Meriros" looks quite stupid as it should read "Merirosvot" but it can't fit in there. I hope this gets fixed before release either by making the font smaller or making the "word box" longer so it will show up correctly or some other fix. ( Nederlands "Vikingen" have the same problem but it's not as bad. )

    Otherwise , this looks great ! The wait is killing me icon_zombieglomp.gif

    It looks really good, nice to know that people of other languages can play easier. Good work on 2.3 looks like A LOT more actually is coming out on 2.3 than I expected. Making me more excited every news announcement.

    I can't read them either but how it looks to me is that you have to kill 3 people in 11 seconds as an Archer. Guessing by the achievement name "Legolas" and theres 3 dead guys with arrows in them

    Nice feature!
    But I will still play it in English, even when Im from Germany. German sounds a bit weird, when you're used to play it in English.

    What I dont like though are the white boxes around the death notices! They really dont fit into the screen and look kinda ugly. sad.gif
    Whats the reason for adding this? :/

    …… How are those two related? I mean, do you think that it was some kind of a choice between doing a translation in either Finnish or Swedish? Why don’t you say that “Why German and not Swedish”? That it was done in Finnish has nothing to do with that it wasn’t done in Swedish, and that it was done in Finnish is nothing taken away from Swedish.

    (Probably only reasons in “choosing” which languages to translate were that the team had a person who a ) spoke some other language than English as his first language B ) was willing to spend time on making the translation. Simple as that).

    Swedish is the official language of trolls, and it's pirates vikings and knights. No trolls to be seen, except for F@G!

    Hilfsttötungen, klingt wie aus dem StGB, aber nicht wie aus 'nem Spiel. Zu ungelenk. Wird schwierig sein, gute Übersetzungen zu finden. "Lunge" vom Skirmisher würde mich auch mal interessieren ...

    Good news, anyways.

    Jack Sparrow: That's not much incentive for me to fight fair, then, is it?

    I am aware of that, ust had to say it is very hard to find an apt translation.

    Wow. The common stereotype I usually get used to hearing is that swedes have blond hair and blue eyes. But that the swedish language is the ´language of the trolls is a new one w00t.

    Although I'm a bit surprised on seeing finnish on the list. But any expansion is a good exansion right? smile.gif

    Might have something to do with Finntroll. Finnish band, but sings in Swedish claiming it sounds so damn trollish.

    Yeah what he said, Finntroll actually tells people they sing in Swedish because it's more troll-like

    because sweden sucks and finland kicks ass of course what other reason could there be

    just kidding ^^

    but honestly this is very very very cool! thanks a ton. not that it is very essential to have the game in finnish, it is certainly appreciated by finnish players, such as myself
    in case you wanted further assistance with the Finnish version please fear not to ask me.

    let me suggest something right away: use "Piraatit" instead of "Merirosvot" and you don't have to abbreviate it and (possibly) make it confusing.

    I can provide a Hungarian translation.

    As again, I know that about 3 Hungarians play the game, but meh, it's always nice to have it on the supported language list. :)

    I just encountered way more swedish players ingame then finnish, actually im so far up to meeting two so far, and im more active on pvkii then 90 percent of this forums ( even though that doesnt say so much) also, finnish is a way harder language to translate than swedish, our language is a lot like german, while finnish is more related to russian

    If we come across a fluent Swedish speaker who is interested in translating the game, we'll be sure to get it translated.
