Thread: Russian translation

  1. #1

    Question Russian translation

    Hello, everyone!
    Iím trying to translate Xenonauts into Russian language. Some sort of game modification, you know. And there is a technical problem here. The game doesnít show Cyrillic. I was trying to switch code page from ANSI to anything else but it doesnít work (why donít you use Unicode?). Is it possible to do something with it?
    By the way, Iíve translated your website into Russian (except gallery-pages and elder news). I can't understand haw to attach files to this message so, Iíll send it to you by e-mail. Please feel free to use it any way you want.

    Hi, thanks for this and the website translation. I'll ask the coders if we can support cyrillic.

    OK, apparently the game can support Cyrillic - strings.xml (which holds most of the game text) should support Unicode so you should be able to replace the English names in there with Cyrillic. Let me know if it doesn't work.

    Well, maybe I'm doing something wrong. I open strings.xml with notepad++. I can see, UTF-8 is used. So yes, I think it should support Cyrillic. Replace soldier's short rank is the easiest way to check changes for me - I can find it in the game immediately. Then I change the ranks, save the file and start the game. But only I can see in the game are blank spaces in place of Cyrillic letters.
    Absolutely the same for xenopedia.xml

    I think, I should attach strings.xml which has the strings were changed. Here it is. The strings # 192 # 196 # 200 # 224 # 228 # 232 were changed.

    OK. I've translated the xenopedia.xml file (descriptions only), and now I can't move forward without your help. There are two files in the attachment 1) translated xenopedia.xml 2) .doc file with Russian and English text.

    Unfortunately you're keeping silence. I don't know what should I think.
    Have you confirmed the problem? Or was I so stupid with my trying to use Notepad++? Or you was so scared with my Engrish? (I know, it's isn't perfect, but it's much easier to translate from English to native then write or speak English).

    Anyway, English words usually have too many meanings to translate separate words without context, so I should stop and wait for your answer.

    Maybe he is looking for someone who reads Russian to help him check the translations?

    I don't think it's necessary, cause there is nothing official. Just a modification. Afterwards any one can change these text files. But the game doesn't show Cyrillic, and I can't understand, am I doing something wrong, so it's my fault, or there is a real technical problem?

    Anyway, I don't want to hurry anybody. I know translation isn't main problem now. I'm just trying to show - I'm ready to work on it, it's really interesting.
