Thanks for the info Khor. I just hope you guys didn't gave up on translating the mod. Frankly, I would happy even with a "speedy" translation as long as the message passes through. Just please let as know once in a while what progress you've made and if we can help in any way. Thank you.

blah

ja2 modmaking ain`t dead. And it is merely a matter of luck if you can find people that are willing to contribute "speedy" or "rough" translations for your particuliar mod. For vengeance, which isn`t out as long as other mods, some people were already contributing nice translations. Maybe it is way more material and also more difficult to do this for shady job or russian mods in general, i don`t know.

most modmakers don`t contribute too much to forum discussions but keep working in the background.
I find this unfortunate becasue often people will think that these projects they don`t hear about are dead. That`s why i repeatedly state that i`m active and working, and that i know that others are modding as well. Just if anybody cares, in my signature there are some screenshots for a mod project that is supposed to base on 1.13 and contian english speech and all. And there are bigger and (maybe) better projects in the making as well. No reason to be so pessimistic

Well, my problem was that I couldn't understand exactly what was being said in the initial documents that were sent. I know Russian does not translate nearly as well into English as - say - German does (English is a Germanic language after all). So I asked for clarifacation before I went any further. When I didn't recieve any e-mails I stopped working.


It's important in any project to have open communication. This is the reason I think many mods teams fall apart.

But in the case of a translation, it is vital for the translator to be able to learn what is meant when something is unclear. I didn't want the wrong dialouge to come out because I didn't get what they were saying so I asked.
I assumed when I didn't get an answer they either didn't like the work I had sent them or they had lost interest in making a translation alltogether.

I stand ready to pick up where I left off if someone answers a few questions.

I agree 100% with you guys, which is why I try to spend several hours a week on several forums, letting people know we're workin on it Smile Because even if I can't get to my code, I can get to the internet almost anywhere. I'm the officially unofficial spokesperson for this project over at TBS, and if I don't post for 3 or 4 days, they start to worry Razz

And I added the mod to my sig on almost every forum I've ever visited, that way (on most forums) my sig is retro-active and people can find their way to the mod even by happening across a very old and completely un-related post Smile

I know, I know, shut up and get back to the source code... I'm going...

Translation is almost ready, but all work in assembling parts in one piece is for one or two person, is a lot of work, so be patient (again Sad )

Okay, Andry, it's been two months. Is this mod coming out for what? I have been waiting for the damn translation FOR AN UNBELIEVABLE TWO YEARS AND TWO MONTHS!!!!

Thank goodness that I hardly give a crap for Jagged Alliance these days... I haven't played the game in a year or more.

you know, it`s a crap job doing translations so asking the original devs to do so is kinda not the smartest thing to do.

most mods will probably never be fully translated (there`s just soo much in there)

i think you were missing out on some ja2 mods during the last year (plain english 1.13 for instance)

You guys don't get it, do you? The only mod I want is THIS MOD. Not my own "frackin mod", not 1.13 (I didn't like it), Shady Job, nothing else! And these guys have been promising us with translations for 2 years, so maybe it's about time they get them done! If they say we're not gonna do them, they're not gonna make me happy, but it's not going to be such a big deal. I DO have other things to do than JA2. BETTER things.

So you just go putzing and rolling your eyes to another dimension, smoker boy.

I want it too as you know. But you cannot force them. They're not a company making money by creating games. They have lives like we have. Yeah it's taking too long, but will you change something by yelling here ? No. You'll have to wait as we have to wait. It's so simple. They'll release it when it's done...

@ Maddog,

Have you thought about asking for your money back?

Cool down and think about it. You are ranting at a group of people who have expressed a willingness to do something for you, for free.

The only people capable of translating this mod don't need the translation for themselves; so what do they get out of this?

And annoying or insulting them provides what encouragement for them to find the time to finish this work?


For my part, I would really like to see this mod translated also. If my only option to get this is through a few foreign fans of the game who will finish their work... whenever...

Well, beggars can't be choosers, eh?

which tools do you have to use to edit the texts?

I don't know any russian but I'm thinking of copying the russian text on freetranslation.com, hit the translate button, paste the english translation in the files... Smile

A word on translations:

How about skipping translation of speech files?
--We get the original speech with undertitles in English.
--That keeps the flair of the original mod.
--The game is fully playable.
--Some messages appear often, usually the shorter ones, and after some time you need not read all the undertitles any more. 'JA2v1.13 Language School' Wink

==> Less work for the translators, more flair for the players!

2 Scooly:

Unless you're using this site to advertise the mod to the Russian speaking audience I see no reason why a new version of the Russian only mod should be announced here. Like most of the people here we've been waiting for a translation (even a very rough one) for the last two years. I'm sorry to join Maddog's style of rant but every man's patience has a limit and I think I have reached mine. Unless you have news about an English translated version don't bother announcing new version at Bearpit. Every time I get an e-mail that this thread was updated I hope some progress was made. So far the only progress seems to be made in Russia for Russians and while I can understand the difficulties of mobilizing a group of people to do a pro-bono job I see no excuse in repeating increasingly empty promises. So please let us know if/when there will be any translation ever be made. Thank you.

Hi!,

Look at the name of the topic - "Ja2UB: Shady Job mod is released" not "English version of SJ". If you like to discuss only about english version, which probably never comes, create a new topic...

I also want to say that I have no connection with SJ group, I don't even know Russian. I only want to informed BPF community about it. Yes, my mistake. SORRY!
