I remember several volunteers for a French translation of KQ1VGA back in the day. The first volunteer abandoned his endeavour after his computer crashed. The others received the translation file and eventually dropped off the face of the earth.

KQ1VGA was a small game with easy-to-translate factual background description and only wordplay/puns in the occasional death message and easter eggs, but doing a complete translation still took between three and four weeks, if you spent between 6 and 8 hours a day on it. (which most people didn't) A larger game would take most people between 9 months and a year to translate completely, if one worked on it consistently. The endeavour is like a fan-project in itself and just as many people underestimate the workload when jumping into it.

hi, i,m new

i,m spanish, and also a king´s quest saga fan. :D

i,m not excellen at english, but i´ll try to do my best.

i,ve thought that you can do a webpage in other languages, like spanish, because i understand engish, but noy all words and expresions :-\, and there are other people who like king,s quest, and they don´t know anything of the international language (english).

this would be a good idea, i think. ;D

there are other spanish web pages that are in diferent languages.

what do you think of the idea?

Unfortunately, I don't know spanish so there's no way I would be able to translate this site to it.  :-\

If you have problems understanding certain english words and expressions, feel free to ask us and we'll be more than happy to help. :)

Because the first game is near to be release (hopefully this Winter), I want to list all people that "said" to help to translate subtitles for the game:
(and to remember to Yonkey (see replay #9 in this thread) somes of the list are still alive)

Real Languages:
- FRENCH: prince-de-rien
- GERMAN: Luisa, Deloria
- DANISH: Jeka
- SPANISH: franzrogar

Fiction Languages: ;)
- PARSELTONGUE: Rosella

Hello Deloria,

Any help in translating the game is welcomed. Note that the translations files will be huge, so if they're 2 or more persons working on them, the people will be able to play the game reading the text in their native lang soon.

Another thing: the subtitles haven't been released yet, so no one is working with.

You're welcomed if still want to help this great project to be *almost* perfect ;)

A bit outdated thread but....

If you still want to add localization to the Web, I can translate the web (including all info and legal advices, even incrusted text in images) into Spanish.

Note: I'll never never never translate the forum!  ;)
