Hey all,

There will be a lot more work involved in translating L2, Profound who helped me out on N.Ops has offered to help me on this too. Any other volunteers are welcome, especially someone interested in Hex editing.

Well, what i noticed with N.Ops when was there was such an amount of things to translate i settled for "it will do" translations.

What i would have liked is a more fun and inventive english translation. E.G. I tried to keep vanilla weapon descriptions in mind, informative with a sense of humour.

Some things are lost in translation also, the dialogue of Sergey in N.ops at the moment even though profound did a great job translating doesn't exactly match the feel of the other Mercs. In time i hope to rectify this where i can.

It would be a help if people who like a character and have a feel for what their given personality might say could take the time to offer suggested speech. The same goes for new weapons, if anyone plays and knows something interesting about a new gun etc... if they let me know i will incorporate it.

At the moment i am just translating new npc/rpc speech. If you want to add some colour to the dialogue be my guest, you'd have to be playing a game though to know the characters. I'm going to do this slightly differently to the N.Ops translation, i'll only be giving out the files to a small amount of people interested in fleshing out the translation. I'm going to do one character at a time so if you are still interested pm me.

You'll need a text editor to get involved or you can just test in game and see how it goes.

Sorry lads,

Don't have time to fully translate this for the next while, might get back on it some time but for the moment the effort isn't really worth the hassle. Maybe 100 people tried the N.Ops translation so it strikes me as though i'm whipping a dead horse.

Sorry to anyone whose hopes i raised.

I think you'll find that it's because in the English speaking world there either aren't a huge amount of us left or that most don't know about it. Even though you have worked hard at it it may need a bit of a boost in advertising like maybe a review on an indie game site or such like. Maybe even try to get Yahtzee from ZeroPunctuation to review it Wink

When i started this translation i realised quite quickly it needs more than one person to tackle it, preferably someone who could speak both English & Polish.

I would be interested in coordinating a translation team of 3 or 4 people who could put in a small amount of effort on a regular basis. There would be no deadlines and the tools are quite easy to get to grips with.

I would only be looking for one file translated at a time from any volunteers. Go on, get involved.
