Community efforts: Game Translation - Let's fix improper translations

Post by Schwanzenstuck »

Since there are several issues with the current translated versions of the game, we the community offer to fix the bad translation practices used in some of the other language versions.

Versions with improper translated content that we heard of already:
German, Russian, French, Spanish Version and even the english version has some mistakes the community is able to fix.

As a community project we could gather all occurrences of mistranslated content here in this thread.
The dev's have been notified of this thread and the issue in general.

We are therefore looking for native speakers with proper grammar and orthography for the following languages:
  • German
  • Russian
  • Spanish
  • French
  • English
  • Portuguese
  • Simplified Chinese
How to participate:
  • You can apply here for taking care of the whole translation in your language. Since the devs might offer us game files for translation, this would be the easiest and most efficient way.
  • You can also just post the incorrect part of the translation and the corrected version within this thread (In this case include where the translation error occurs (Story [Mission], Inventory, HUD, Tutorial)
Everyone's help is welcome!
