Regarding Fan Translations
Hey everyone! A Short Hike now has multilingual support! There are currently official French, Spanish, Japanese, and Brazilian Portuguese translations of the game. I'm not planning to add additional official translations at the moment.

Making Fan Translations

A number of fan translations have already been made for A Short Hike! I think this is really cool, and I'm so happy that people took the time to translate the script (which isn't short!) to new languages. Since version 1.7, you can now easily modify the dialogue files for the game without modding it. However, just keep in mind that fan translations will not be officially added to the game once they are completed.

If you're working on a fan translation, please consider sharing it on the mods subforum. This makes it easier for people to find and collaborate on translations.

Editing Game Dialogue
In the "AShortHike_Data" folder, you can find a file called "_LANG_Custom.yarn_lines.csv"

This contains all the dialogue in the game in the CSV format.

If you rename it to remove the first underscore, it will appear in the languages menu in-game, allowing you to load it. To give your translation a name, you can rename it to "LANG_MyLanguage.yarn_lines.csv" and it will still show up as "MyLanguage" in the menu.

I recommend editing the spreadsheet in Google Sheets, since it will always preserve the correct CSV delimiters.

Other Character Sets
To force the game to use different character sets, you can add a FONT row to the CSV.
Only three other character sets are supported right now:

LineCode - LineText
FONT - Chinese:12:0:1*0*0*1
FONT - Korean:16:2
FONT - Japanese:12:2
FONT - Cyrillic:16

Feel free to reach out to me via Discord[discord.gg] or email[adamgryu.com] for support.

Installing Fan Translations

After downloading a file called "LANG_MyLanguage.yarn_lines.csv", drag it into the "AShortHike_Data" folder, wherever the game is installed. Then, just relaunch the game and the translation should appear in the language settings.

Here are some finished fan translations I've found so far - note that I was not involved in their creation in any way and cannot vouch for their quality.

Gracias :D Too bad I've figured this out now, I just completed the game 100% very recently xD

If you need a second reviser for the French version, I’ll do it for free.

Love your game!

Thanks a lot for beta! and I have one question. I tried to apply Korean Font in csv but didn't know what i should did exactly. I added a FONT row on the csv file, and what more needs to be done?

Hey Eueek!

When you add a new row to the CSV, there's a column for LineCode, where you type FONT, and then in the column for LineText type Korean:16:2

If this doesn't work, then it's a bug on my end and I'll look into it!

Hello! First of all, thanks for a great game =)
But there is a question, regarding russian localisation - i`m actually super excited about possibilty of translating the game myself, but apparently cyrillic fonts are absent.
Maybe there is an easy way to add font in game, and you could point me in the right direction?
grilledcheese  [developer] Jun 29, 2020 @ 10:15am 
Hey Meriado!
Sorry I haven't added a cyrillic font yet. New fonts aren't easy to add to the game without modding it. When I get some time, I'll try adding a Cyrillic font and releasing a beta build.

I've started a portuguese translation (PT-BR), but there's just a small part of it yet.
I'll take a lot of time to complete. If someone is willing to help, I'll be glad.
