@freak Awesome stuff, thank you so much for the effort again!

I'm on a super tight schedule atm, but will try to prep some reward besides game credits for you guys here.

I've been updating context every now and then, but it's quite a slow process, so haven't gotten through it all yet. Will try to get through yours at least later today and will remind you here as well when done!

@freak Actually just added context to all of those smile

Let me know if anything still unclear!

And just in general I wonder, were the contexts I've been providing clear enough, or would context in the form of "this is a noun/verb/proverb" and "singular/plural" be more useful generally?

@slosumo

awesome thank you smile 

I would say overall the context was useful most of the time but a couple of times I still wasn't entirely sure. I think adding noun, verb, proverb and singular/plural would have helped a bit, but I think what would have helped the most is if we would have had a form that we could fill in to ask you what is unclear, but I didn't see such an option provided by Localizer. But overall the translation process was pretty straight forward and I liked the platform.

Ah alright, will keep those things in mind for future smile

For context/asking directly, it's best you join our Discord:
https://discord.gg/ZZDvEuR

Also made a chatroom dedicated specifically for translations there - would just need to give you permissions/group to be able to post there once you join. Otherwise you could also write in general or PM me there smile

Hey all!

I'd just like to let you know that we've uploaded about 85 new keys for translation and did some smaller changes to about 30 old ones.

While we will still be doing some smaller alterations and additions up to launch, this is probably the last big change to translations, so would be awesome if you guys could have a look and get these keys sorted as well <3

After these are done, we'll actually be able to import them in game and see how it all looks grin

Also Slovenian And Japanese languages were added for translation, so if anyone can get started on those would be great smile

* Obviously we can translate Slovenian, but additional help and saving us some time would be greatly appreciated nonetheless!

I've just sent out this email earlier to about 50k PV members (in case anyone here didn't receive it):


------------------
As you may or may not know, we are working on a big strategy/management game called “Simpocalypse”, and it is releasing in about a month!

The goal is to translate the game to as many languages as possible, as that will help our launch and a good launch can help many parts of our business improve!

And that is where YOU come in! Our amazing community has already helped us translate the game to many languages, and we've just rewarded those members with 100k BAP each!

We are still looking for help with primarily the following languages:
Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, French and Turkish

There are no special skills required, other than that you speak one of these languages and can read and understand English really well.

If you are interested in helping and earning up to 100k BAP (depending on how much you help, plus there might be additional bonuses for quickness and quality), please drop an email at andraz@gamex-studio.si where you will receive further instructions.

Slots per language might be limited so hurry up if you are interested smile

We are also looking for other translations, but they are not as urgent:
Vietnamese, “regular” Portuguese, Japanese, Czech, Spanish – Latin America, Filipino, Hungarian and Swedish

In the future we might be looking for other languages – when we will we will make another announcement smile

Also if you haven't yet, make sure to check out and wishlist the game on Steam:
https://store.steampowered.com/app/1351500/Simpocalypse/

Let's make this game's launch a success!
--------------------

I've been bombarded with Emails, so it seems we will be able to get a bunch of more languages added quickly smile

For a sake of general overview, I've taken a snapshot of translation progress (note that those with 35%+ are generally all 100% translated, but it's not counting approved google translates in that count):

We've just uploaded a bunch of new game texts & changed some, as we've done a ton of updates, improvements and extensions in preparation for the full version smile

So even languages that were already fully translated need some more work now. If you are interested in helping out, you can do so on Localizor here:
https://www.localizor.com/simpocalypse

They'd be amazing to have them properly finished by our full version launch on 15th. But If possible, ideally by 3rd December, as on 4th, we are launching our updated demo on various web platforms grin

Early next week the demo will be exclusively available on our website already, as well as we will begin some full version beta tests, where you'll be able to see your work in-game smile

We are so grateful for your help here, this is invaluable to a good launch for our game!

Thank you all smile

We now have confirmed Portuguese and French translations which were added to our store page smile

I've got a request for any Polish, Italian, Dutch translators here:

It would be awesome if you could get at least "early_access" key translations sorted as soon as you can manage. There's just 6 keys for it.

Thing is Steam will start picking up the traffic in the last 2 weeks before launch and having that EA text translated properly would be just immensely helpful smile

To filter the keys out, you can just type "early_access" in filter keys box above the keys like so:


Thank you!

Have you considered Fiver?

I'm sure it wouldn't cost much.

We'll use Fiverr for anything we can't cover otherwise. With the help of people who joined our game discord and some members from PV/MTV we've gotten most key languages translated already.

We used Fiverr for Chinese and will use it for any other big holes -> like Russian, if we can't get it fully translated in time.

Hey all!

We've just uploaded the final batch before full game launch, of another 96 keys/~1000 words to Localizor.

If you could help us get this sorted until 15th December the latest, that would be great! If not, no worries, we'll make do with temporary google translations for these and improve on later smile

I also apologize for the delay in answering any context request, but this last week we're crazy busy with preparing everything for launch! I hope I can get through them in the next few days, otherwise it'll have to wait after launch, simply every hour matter up to that point surprised

Here's the screenshot: The white bar. It's actually there the whole time from the game start. Slowly grows to the size while the game loads.

Otherwise I'm on PC, Steam, Win10, AMD Radeon RX 5700 (a bit behind on update),  2560x1440 screen size.
