[localization] French translation
Hello,

I am a French girl, and I would like to translate your game for free.
But, before, I have a few questions :
I don’t have Microsoft Excel, but do you think I can use Microsoft Excel Online instead ?
I have made a test with a random file and I can save it into .xlsx file. Is it something you can work with ?
If not, do you think you can Copy/Paste the whole thing into some Google Sheet thing ? I will be able to translate it online.

Regards,
Pom

Hi!
Thank you very much for your desire to translate!

You can try to translate online, and then we integrate it ourselves. Then you have to help us with testing the text in the game. Okay?

Hey,

Thank you for your answer :D:

I already bought the game and uploaded the 2 files on Google Sheet to be able to translate them.
Then, I will try to get Microsoft Excel and I will copy/paste everything into the software and send it to you, so you can integrate it into the game.

If this works for you I will start right now

And of course I will test the text in the game to see if everything is ok

You can use LIbreOffice instead of Excel. This is more than suitable for copy/pastle.
Well, we will expect results :StoryNotes:

Tu as besoin d'aide à tout hasard ? Car je me serais fait une joie de participer aussi ! :)
Pomponeko Mar 6, 2019 @ 10:52am 
Salut !

Merci pour la proposition. Pour le moment je me suis déjà organisée, et j'ai peur que ça soit plus compliqué de traduire à deux au final (niveau organisation et cohérence de la trad), et y'a pas tant de texte que ça.
Je viendrai poster ici régulièrement de toute façon et si jamais j'ai un gros soucis pourquoi pas.
InariKettu Mar 6, 2019 @ 11:11am 
Comme tu veux. Je peux t'aider sur la relecture, au moins. ;)
Pomponeko Mar 6, 2019 @ 11:27pm 
Salut !

Un ami qui a déjà traduit des jeux s'est proposé pour la relecture, on devrait s'en sortir.

So far so good :StoryNotes: :StoryNotes:

Hey,

translation is done, testing the game now. There are a few problems:

- little squares instead of à è ê ô...

- a few notes are longer in french and text doesn't fit in one page

:StoryNotes:

Great!
The game uses two fonts. In what font appeared squares?
What's the name of this note?
Pomponeko Mar 15, 2019 @ 3:31am 
Squares appear in the titles, menu, options. No square inside the notes

Notes too long to fit in one page are:
- Altars mystery
- Monster in the lake
- Scarecrow

Text is sometimes too long in notes menu too like here:

"Rayon de soleil dans le royaume des ombres" last word "ombres" doesn't fit

It happens several times in menu / options too, like for "show crouch icon" or "section selection:"
I can make a list, and play through the game again to check if all items descriptions fit.

We'll need the translated text to adjust the size of the text fields.
Pomponeko Mar 15, 2019 @ 2:16pm 
Hey,

I can send you by email all the french translations and the list of translations that doesn't fit the text fields.

I also found 2 free fonts with all french characters, they are in .ttf and not in .gfx, If I send them to you can you put them in the game ?
