Translate the Web Site

Download and translate messages_bundle.inc.txt from http://www.aevumobscurum.com/original/download-tool/. The file is a text file. Translate the right-hand side. You can open it in Notepad or any other text editor. Then email the translated file to contact@aevumobscurum.com.


Translate the Messages

If you would like to translate the messages in AO to your own language (+country) please follow the instructions below.

0) Make sure nobody is already translating. Also, make sure the newest files are online to translate. => ask here in the forum.

1) Go to: http://www.aevumobscurum.com/original/download-tool/

2) Download:
  • attesoro_1_6.jar
  • MessagesBundle.properties
  • PayPalBundle.properties
  • Optional: MessagesBundle_??.properties + PayPalBundle_??.properties
3) Run attesoro_1_6.jar (double click the file) and open the MessagesBundle.properties file from within attesoro.

4) Create a new translation for language (and country). E.g. "it" for Italien. Or continue an existing incomplete translation.

5) Translate the given texts.

Optional 6) For testing on ... copy your MessagesBundle_??.properties to
  • Windows: "C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\aevumobscurum-or2game\scenario\MessagesBundle_??.properties"
  • Linux: "~/aevumobscurum-or2game/scenario/MessagesBundle_??.properties"
  • Macintosh: "~/aevumobscurum-or2game/scenario/MessagesBundle_??.properties"

Optional 7) Rename the file so it uses _xx. E.g. Rename it from MessagesBundle_de.properties to MessagesBundle_xx.properties

Optional 8) Launch AO

Optional 9) Choose the L33t Language (skull language icon)

Optional 10) Your language file should be shown now.

Optional 11) If done, email the MessagesBundle_??.properties and PayPalBundle_??.properties files to contact@aevumobscurum.com


Translate the Manual


We are talking about the in-game manual here!

0) Make sure nobody is already translating. Also, make sure the newest files are online to translate. => ask here in the forum.

1) Go to: http://www.aevumobscurum.com/original/download-tool/

2) Download: Manual.html or Manual_??.html depending if you are translating from scratch or extending/updating an existing translation.

3) Translate! IMPORTANT: leave the <strong>, <br>, <p>, <h1>, ... tags in there! Otherwise the formatting will look really bad!

4) If done, email the Manual.html file to contact@aevumobscurum.com



Note on Translations


You will get a free account upgrade/extension if you go through the hassle of translating AO if you desire - just bug me about it! Thanks!

Great! There is just 6 pages to translate (probably Babelfish can help?):
-> First six pages linked on the left-hand side menu!

Also, can you translate the "PayPalBundle.properties" at:
http://www.aevumobscurum.com/original/download-tool/

Just email the files to me :gott:

If you could do the MessagesBundle.properties_?? file, that would be great! The manual won't show if the messages are not translated first to Russian!

:gott:

The German translation is little out of date! Please download the MessagesBundle files (the newest versions are online) and go ahead with the translation! Thanks. :gott:
