Why has PoE2 been sold so badly? in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire General Discussion (NO SPOILERS) Posted April 18, 2020 2 hours ago, Boeroer said: You can tell that the translation studio didn't have all the context it needed. I guess you'd have to know the lore and play the game first (and I mean thoroughly) in order to be able to translate it properly. If translations take place in a vacuum (so to speak) you'll end up with weirdness, especially in a complex fantasy (or scifi) setting where you have oozes, sporelings and whatnot. I agree the translation studio didn't have what they needed to work, obviously. But it's part of Obsi work to 1- give them the right tools to work and 2- at least look at what have been done. We're talking here of main menu mistranslation, false tooltips, different skills having the same name, bad traduction in the story (especially vaccum)... Immersion is realy important in a crpg game, and reading is a lot of time in POE. The first feelings are very important and once you have done so bad, it is difficult to make the way back. I made 4-5 people buying POE, 0 buying POE2. One good thing, the main story plot was not so badly translate, but if you can't understand a game and the mechanics, you don't realy care of the plot because you can't enjoy your game.
