EP Translation Projects
Hey everyone, I'm trying to get a grasp on where various fan-initiated translation projects for EP are at. Aside from the French translation that Black Book is working on and a Portuguese translation of the QSR in the works, I'd like to pin down what else is out there. I believe at various points I've also seen mention of efforts to translate EP materials into German, Italian, Polish, Russian, and Spanish. Links would be good. Maybe we can bring some attention to these efforts and get other people involved to move them along. This might also help our efforts to score some foreign-language licenses.So if you know of anything, please post it here!

Re: EP Translation Projects
what I'm also wondering is if the fans in other countries are taking active part of the translation of the publishers' forum on the French forum of Black Book, there is an active thread for the EP translation. the current project is the translation of Lack. We do it for fun and to help the companies (BBE and Posthuman) to have the book translated more easily and faster. We don't know if BBE will use the offered translation -if they're even allowed to use it, actually - but it's a good exercise for our language skills and writing muscle

Re: EP Translation Projects
I'm trying to do a translation to german, since it's my mother language and (native speaking) people tell me that my grasp of english is that excellent. I need it for my group too, i don't want to use english words when there could be a good german equivalent. But some things just have to stay english.

Re: EP Translation Projects
I translate the QSR into Japanese and upload its non-spoiler part(Introduction and charecters at start) on my site. Though EP isn't known in Japan (at least, as far as I know) and I have yet play it, I'll upload other parts, if I get positive reaction. http://janus_.at.infoseek.co.jp/EP_index.html (Sorry, this site is written in Japanese)

Re: EP Translation Projects
I've already translated the QSR and introductory adventure (trechriron is helping me out with the layout), the GM screen, the "Lack" introductory fiction and "A People's history of an unfortunate universe" to give my players, and JMobius' (and now Kindalas') spreadsheet, v 0.84 so far. I've not uploaded any of it yet, but let me know if you want me to.

Re: EP Translation Projects
Also, for those of us willing to help out in the layout department, would Adam be willing to share the files for layout on the Quickstart? It would be immensely helpful keeping the look and feel. I am glad to be a "junior" and submit my work to Posthuman for oversight, sign an NDA, keep files confidential, et al (as wished by the Posthuman peoples). I know it gets busy, and it's a great learning opportunity for me, so I have no problem volunteering my time to help with the translation products. It's a good cause for our Eclipse Phase fellows across the globe! :-D

Re: EP Translation Projects
I know German, I work in localization. I totally want to do this. I'm in SoCal, working for Games and I absolutely love this game (writing fanfic, but busy, due to dayjob, boo). Seriously, let me help, don't care about money, just credit...errr... @rep.

Re: EP Translation Projects
I worked as a professional english/spanish translator for years, although I put that in the backburner for law school (which I'm at right now, drowning in cases on a daily basis). I can gladly work on translating stuff for EP into spanish on my spare time, since I absolutely love this game. I spread the EP name like the plague to every gamer I meet. Let me know what you guys need, and I'll see what I can do.

Some unofficial Spanish Translations-Traducciones no sancionadas
Hiyas! DISCLAIMER: I believe this is the wrong forum for this post, since it smacks of a "whole translations of book & posting reports on what's going on" thread. Heck, I'll post here anyways... It seems like there's no other place! (lol) I've only translated most of the various books' terms to Spanish. Mind you, I'm a bit Hispano-centric so I've "Spanished" most of what I could reasonably do (eg, changed most of the last names to Spanish sounding last names where reasonable)! If there are some already "real world" established terms, please, by all means resort to the original (I'm not very keen on cutting-edge scifi or real world avant garde science)! There are also some basic word translations included in the text, mostly to remind myself of simple terms, when in doubt, in the middle of a session... Please, feel free to ignore these. ...Hmmm... Seems I have no idea on how to upload stuff here too, so I'll just cut & paste the whole text.

They probably won't, or they would have asked already or talked about it. It's a shame. Ombres Portées (the guys behind the French SR4) did it, asking for feedback and ideas on some of the glossary before finishing the SR4 Core Rulebook (and various sourcebook since). To my knowledge it was a first, and it was a great idea and a great help. To bad it's not done again and in a more open way for the French EP. Some words are incredibly difficult or downright impossible to localize, and having 50 or 100 minds instead of a couple is always a good thing.

Re: Some unofficial Spanish Translations-Traducciones no ...
While I can't read Spanish at all, it is very interesting and encouraging. Why? because I am working similar translation, to Japanese. It is my translation of "A People's history of an unfortunate universe", if you are interested. http://janus_.web.fc2.com/EP_History.pdf

Re: EP Translation Projects
http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/into-the-eclipse/wikis/lexikon Translated the terminology into german, most of it. Some friends glossed over it and helped me proofreading. Feedback is wanted :)
Tessai Tessai's picture
Re: EP Translation Projects
If it is feedback you want, I will gladly provide it. Just for your Information I am also a native german *waves from hamburg*. First of all very good work, there are however a few entries that may need to be changed or could sound better, in my opinion of course. Basiliskenhack: Ein Bild oder anderer sensorischer Input der den visuellen Cortex des Gehirns und die Mustererkennungsfähigkeiten so beeinflusst, dass eine Störung auftritt und möglicherweise den neuralen Code des Ziels umschreibt. -Might need to be changed a bit as with your explanation an aural basilisk hack does not seem to be possible. Ghost-riding: Einen Infomorph in einem speziellen Implantat in deinem Kopf tragen. -You refer to the act of carrying another being with you, however the term Ghost-riding seems to infer being carried by someone else to me. Netz: Das omnipräsente kabellose Datennetzwerk. Auch als Verb benutzt („vernetzen“) und adjektiv („vernetzt“) -Technically fine, however I feel that in the english version the term mesh was picked to differentiate it from the now commonplace use of the word net. Preferably I would suggest to stick with the english term mesh, otherwise if it really needs to be translated I would suggest using the word "Gewebe" to achieve the same seperation in german. Randser: Exilanten, welche am Rand des Systems leben oder in anderen isolierten und gut versteckten Ecken und Winkeln leben. Auch Isolationisten oder Drifter genannt. -The word just seems unwiedly to me. Ender would be my suggestion. Reinspringen: Dank XP Technologie zu einer ferngesteuerten Drohne „werden“. -Very colloquial, I personally do not like the sound of it. My suggestions would be "abtauchen" or "eintauchen". Scorching: Feindselige Programme welche ein Cyberhirn beschädigen oder beeinflussen können. -Explaning a word that indicates an activity as an object is quite confusing. Skin: Ein biologischer physischer Morph. Aka Meat, Fleisch Skinning: Deine wahrgenommene Umgebung via AR Programmierung. - These two are too close together and might lead to confusion. Also for Skinning see my comment on Scorching. These are the ones that stood out the most to me on the first pass, will read it again later.

Re: EP Translation Projects
Hi there. I'd be willing to help in the translation of EP to italian (my mothertongue)...is there any other which could help out? I'm going to do it on spare time though...at the moment I'm backpacking across australia but I tend to read EP a lot. Just bought ego hunter ;) What would be the best way to start? The "quick start rules" would be any good? I'm leaning towards those since they may give some sort of a sample of what the game's about...what do you guys think?

Re: EP Translation Projects
I would be interested in helping out with a Spanish translation project. I was born and still live in Latin America so Spanish is my native language. I also studied for twelve years in an English-speaking school so I can speak English fluently. I've never been part of an official translation project, but I like the idea. If there's enough interest, we could get a group organized and working together in the translation process, maybe set up a private wiki or forums. Please reply to this post if you're interested in this undertaking.

Re: EP Translation Projects
I'm interesting in polish translation. I have problems with translating from polish to english but not vice versa. If someone want to help me with the polish translation of QSR i'm waiting for PM. I'll try to start translation on 4th july, when my exam session will end.

Russian QSR dirty translation will be finished in about a week. Fancy pdf will be ready a bit later, in a week or two. I will post a link here then for anyone interested.

Cool! I'll be looking forward to it. It'll be way, way beyond my almost nonexistent Mandarin, but it'll be a fun resource to look at as I start my studies again next month.

I'll be looking forward too. While I can read Chinese very little, it is fun to see what Chinese characters are assined to EP-original English words(like "Exsurgent").

Ok, I have lost my fight with Adobe's definition of usability. There will be no russian pdf with QSR fan translation by me, sorry.

Re: EP Translation Projects
EP's Quickstart was released last week in French ...but the pdf is watermarked AND protected! I can't even edit out the adventure before handing it to my players! Seriously, BBE?! the style and tone are well respected, but some of the translated are just... well, look at it yourselves: Biomorph= Pellis Bouncer= folivore (leaf eater) Reclaimers: ReclamaTerre (ReclaimEarth) Skinethics: Hypeauthétique (hy-skin-thetical) Ruster: Oxydé I liked Audace for Moxie and Ecumeurs for the Scums and "animaux surevolués" pour uplifted animals. Ultimistes for the Ultimates is cool too on the BBE forum, an errata thread has been open to help with the corrections, because as it is, it's quite distracting from the setting!

Re: EP Translation Projects
I don't understand why they didn't assigned the translation of EP to the Ombres Portées collective. Those folks did such a great job with Shadowrun, and EP doesn't have as much books as SR does. I'm thinking of mixing the official translation with Okhin's. I've talking with Mandragorus and Blythe, two of my players, and they both agree with the idea of keeping proper nouns such as Morphs' brands, locations and hypercorps names, and the Mesh, as it is, untranslated. (btw, that reminds me to ask him if someone has translated his games, Chroniques Uchroniques and Excidium, in English. It would be funny to make some crossover.

Re: EP Translation Projects
I am currently working on the translation to Traditional Chinese. The QSR is almost done, with about 100 page of the full rule scattering around. It is not exactly a faithful translation, as I prefer melting local culture within, as well as to translate the meaning, rather than sound or literally. https://sites.google.com/site/eclipsephasezh/ This is where I host the almost-finished translation of the QSR. It is almost done, sans the characters and the examples.

Re: EP Translation Projects
I have a question regarding the core book. At some points of the book (I'm right now looking at the Echo IV description) the term "billion" is mentioned. ...Are we talking here about "american" billions (as in, a thousand millions) or "european" billions (as in, a million millions). Because that would be kind of relevant ;)

I'm pretty sure they are going on American billions. As American writers, I presume that the developers are using the terms as they are commonly used here. Besides, the latter would make the math absolutely ridiculous... that would mean the extremely large population of Earth pre-fall would be 1,000 times larger than the overcrowded estimate they already gave.

Re: EP Translation Projects
My translation of the QSR is done (save the examples, actually). Currently I am translating the main rule book as well, with the Skills translated, and currently re-working on the translation of the character generation. The link can be found at my sig, or my post not too far from above. :p

That's a pretty solid translation, and apparently you have done more research that I did! :D I've skimmed through your translation, it is quite nice, although the usage of words is understandably different than mine. Though, I believe that Agoniser (used by Gavin) should be translated somewhere closer to "苦痛者", as it is closer to both the meaning of the word and its function. :) Otherwise, keep up the good work! You are welcomed to visit my Chinese translation too. :p

Thank you for the correction. I must have rolled a critical failure in language test.:( But since I have published the rule on a forum I am quite familiar with and it has been downloaded over a hundred times, it may be too late to make the change, though I will post a thread and explain the mistake anyway. Besides, unfortunately I can't visit your web site here. Perhaps you can share it by some other ways if it doesn't bother too much? I am really looking foward to read the Traditional Chinese version.

Upon a quick wiki search, it appeared that the site that I used to host, Google Sites, was unfortunately blocked in mainland China. I am planning to host it on a mirror site because of it. Currently, I am thinking of reusing my old translation wiki [url=http://www52.atwiki.jp/eclipse_phase/]here[/url] to host it. It was a bit broken as I am in the process of tearing down the draft for my new one, but I will restore it once I have reorganised the content. It would be great of you if you can tell me whether you (and people from mainland China) can access it, or better yet, suggest a site for hosting my rules! :) In the meantime, I have downloaded the html of my QSR translation and packed them [url=https://rapidshare.com/files/3133516212/QSR.zip]here[/url] for download. The sidebar and pictures would not work, but since I haven't done anything to them (I didn't buy that skill or have the gear. :p), I guess it is good enough as a makeshift solution for now.

Your old translation wiki works just fine here, but right now I can't download the QSR on Rapidshare, maybe you can try 4shared instead.

I tried to upload it on 4shared, but it asked for e-mail verification, which I never received despite asking them to send again. I think once I clean up all the old translation, I will mirror my translation at the old wiki. Damn, even though we are technically in one country, it sure is a lot of work to get us connected. Give us the mesh already! :D

It works, but with some character corruption. I changed encode setting to "unicode (UTF-8)" in IE8 for Japanese.
