Do game translations get more often updates than game releases?

Recommended Posts

Last translations in my main language was terrible. I'm completed translates and curious to know if i can see translations in game before waiting game release.

In theory, you will need to wait for a release. If you want, you can get the translations from the development version and use them, but they won't work if some strings in the original English were deleted or modified between the last release and the current date.

Offtopic, but I have an idea: what if we add semi-supported languages as a mod?

Follow the steps in this guide: https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/BuildInstructions to get the development version of the game. No need to build anything. Then, locate the translation files (everything starting with your language code) under binaries/data/mods/public/l10n/. There are a few strings translated using files in binaries/data/mods/mod/l10n/ and binaries/data/l10n/. Put them in your "user" mod (locate it using https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/GameDataPaths), in a folder /path/to/your/mods/user/l10n.

Yeah, we could easily package a mod with the incomplete translations on each release. :)

You should be able to drop your translation files into your installation without reinstalling them. Make sure to export them as .mo first.

If any entries are missing, Gettext will simply display the English text, so it won't cause any problems.
