Translation
Hey Devs team.

Are you going to make translation on the game?
I'm french, and ok to play in english even if I prefer to play in my native language ofc :D
Will you add that later on, or will you open workshop to add this kind of thing by the community?

Thanks in advance!
Keep the good work :)

I have read posts like this far too often and except for one time the announcements were just hot air.

Sorry if there is confusion about our posts. All we have tried to communicate is that we have not promised and will not promise a translation at this time.

Or is there some technical reasoning? I assumed most of text would be just textboxes, both mechanic and story parts. That doesn't change in updates seemingly, so only one person required to maintain translation after it's done.

Absolutely, it is for technical reasons. If there were not technical reasons, we would have considered this already.

Also, while it may not seem like text changes often, more text is added every single week and often text is changed as well. I am not saying the community wouldn't handle that, but it is changing 1 to 2 times a week.

Interesting, I didn't notice such. You do many content updates especially lately, but hardly 2 per week, which mean some not patched updates happen.
Still, I don't think it's that much text. I bet it's much less than standart sheet of text, which can reasonably be done in couple of hours at worst. Then all you would need is to put it in.

I see. Well, this is something that can't be dealt with from this side.
Again, I do not require translation at all. If publisher does not force me, I always play "english" versions, both speech and text, because commonly they are what was intended by devs. And if that happens, I do my best with tinkering.

But what the man above in commets IS right - you would do better to clarify it from the beginnig - translation won't happen. That would be honest, cause with respect, since you are small dev team - the only real way to translate game on multiple, non-native for you languages would be community help. If I were you, I wouldn't even consider commercial way, cause it's not worth it for small studio. And doing it by yourselves is just way too troublesome. And much better use this time for content work or new games.

If you plan to add at least basic translations to your future games, you should consider adding support for community help really. I bet that you see multiple complications about this system work, I also do. But can't see it happen any other way.
Cheers!

I was going to take it as is anyway :) Good luck with translation.

Hmm, and it should work with another game of yours.
An RPG where there will certainly be a lot more text and will probably also be dynamically integrated.
Either you didn't want to make a translation possible from the start, as I suspected, or you lack the know-how. Which is not a problem if you know that you can get help and are ready to use it.

Keyword community!

Hm und bei einem anderen Spiel von euch soll es dann funktionieren.
Ein RPG wo mit Sicherheit viel mehr Text geben wird und wahrscheinlich auch noch dynamisch eingebunden wird.
Entweder wollten Sie, wie ich vermutet habe, von Anfang an keine Übersetzung ermöglichen, oder Ihnen fehlt das Know-how. Dies ist kein Problem, wenn Sie wissen, dass Sie Hilfe erhalten können und bereit sind, diese zu verwenden.

Thanks for the feedback. Cyber Knights is a new game. If you've worked on large software projects and translation you can vouch for the technical efficiency of including translation from the beginning of a project compared to back porting it. So, we ensured we did the work up front this time. Hope it helps understand the situation. Nothing malicious, just keeping our commitments, priority and time :)

Leute schaut mal wann der Thread erstellt wurde, da kommt nichts mehr und war meiner Meinung nach auch nie geplant! Leider wie so oft volle Verarsche bzw. Abzocke.

People take a look when the thread was created, nothing more comes and in my opinion it was never planned! Unfortunately, as is so often the case, full scams or rip-offs.
