Hello!

Interested in translating Silence of the Sleep into your language? Read on! :)

This is not official but I'm trying to release the game 1st of October 2014. This said, it would not be too long ahead and I've still got plenty to do.

So, I've got lots of requests if the game will be translated into different languages. I think it is a good idea! Here is a small list of which languages I've been thinking:
German, Russian, Spanish, Italian, French, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese.

If you think the list is missing some language that should be included, let me know!

Okey, Silence of the Sleep is my debut game and I've been creating it with minimum income. I still need to invest some money to register company and some additional stuff in Finland.
I mentioned this because currently I can not afford to pay for translations.

What I ask is if you would be interested in translating the game into your language? As said, I can't pay but I would be more than happy to include your name in ending credits and once the game is ready send you a Steam key of the game. If Silence of the Sleep can be a success, this would be a good add-on to your portfolio!

There will be around 3500 lines to be translated, so it's not a huge amount of text. I'd say it takes around a day to translate.

But before the possible translations I would need someone to check the English dialogues and texts, when they are good to go the translations would follow!


WHO CAN TRANSLATE THE GAME?

As I can't pay I don't expect you to be a professional. But good English skills and writing skills are necessary to get the best possible translations! I've already a few emails asking if they could translate the game, I'm going to read through these again and contact them soon.

It would be also good to have 2 persons per translation. One to translate and one to proofread!

If you are interested please contact me at jesse@silenceofthesleep.com


ABOUT TIMING

I'm currently starting with CHAPTER 5 which is the final chapter!

Okay this is a estimate as I can't predict things to come.
However if everything goes as planned I'm able to finish the game around end of the August. Then I would start polishing the game and the first thing I'd do is I'd check the English dialogues so I could send them out to be double checked.

Hopefully after a couple of days I'd get the English dialogues back, fixed and good to go. At this point I'd send out the English dialogue for all the translators.

As the schedule is pretty tight I'd need the translations in around a week to get enough time to plant them in the game and check everything works.

Long read but thanks for reading! :)

I am @Big Boss's friend, and I already work with translations, and although my resumee includes mostly articles, I have already translated a handful of games as well.

I'll contact you by mail later on today.
