  1. 1. Translation to which languages should be a priority in your opinion (in addition to English, French, German and Spanish, which are already confirmed)?

I'm portuguese and I would specifically order the game in English if it was translated into Portuguese. I hate translated/dubbed games and movies. But I understand many people don't know enough English to be able to play a game with a lot of text, so I hope everyone gets their needs satisfied.

 

I'm sure you'll have the choice of playing the game in the language of your choosing.

 

Anyway, I'll gladly be part of a Polish translation team. I already have experience with translating games, and I'm sure working directly with the developer on it (as opposed to a Polish publisher, who is in contact with original publisher, with pretty much no contact with the devs to help out with ambiguities) will help make it much better than usual.

 

I'll be thrilled to participate in Polish translation too, if of course Obsidian decide to give it a green light. I have some experience in translating pen&paper RPG's and will enjoy to be part of localization team if ever assembled :no:

 

Well, I'm responsible for Polish Planescape: Torment, BG2, NWN, and over 200 other games, and I'd be delighted if I could work on the game. Let's keep our fingers crossed so that Obsidian adds Polish, Russian and Italian to the next stretch tier.

 

As for PST Polish translation, It's the only case I enjoyed it even better than English original. It was truly magnificent work You guys have done :bow: BG1 and BG2 translations was also excellent. Having such profs ready to handle PE localization makes me even more eager to join such team if it will be ever possible. So as Ryslaw said let's keep our fingers crossed :no:

@Gerardo That's true. It's hard to get from people where they are from though. However, we should have something cool to announce on Russian and Polish really soon.

Where they have written? No Italian? I'm really disappointed. :(

True :) Polish translation of PS:T was the best translation ever seen.

I voted Russian and Polish for two reasons:

 

One because the switch of characters is going to make the translation a bit trickier than from other Romantic alphabet using languages so it may be best if this is done with official support so our Eastern European friends don't need to worry about characters not fitting in boxes right et ketra and having to mod a whole lot more than words in if they'd like to translate themselves.

 

Two because I've seen many Russian forumers talking about and asking for translation/localization, and Polish is also often mentioned in the discussion. Going off the poll I'd say there's definitely an interest or at least a shared perception that that's something a number of fans will want.

Thanks for your support for Polish translation, mate. Although I'm not expecting too many problems with Polish alphabet. We are using latin script. Same as English, more or less.

Nonsense, that's just a communist ploy!
