File Project English Terms

1. It’s okay to translate position info. Just don’t mess with the actual coordinates and codes.

2. Delete the pink stuff. The pink markings tell you that there are some tags that doesn’t get carried over. However, in many cases you actually don’t want the tags to carry over. In a few cases you’ll want to manually add the tags back. Refer to the English original for how the game tags/codes are positioned and use it as reference instead. Remember that the software is stupid and you’re the smart one. Treat the software suggestions as what they are: suggestions.

3. Yes, use the informal Du.

I´ve finished spotchecking. Please find my report attached here. It took me 130 minutes checking all 12 files.

there!

So, it took a while, but I got Transit running under W7, imported the dictionary, inserted all terms and am ready to. However I get no fuzzy matches, and I wonder how to set the min, quality for fuzzy matches to 50% as Karel proposes on on the web site under “Setting up the program”.

I knew I did this on my XP machine, but that was month ago, and I simply forgot. Did I already mention that I’m not a big Transit fan? (((-;

Cheers

” Never mind,
. Found it. Off we go! “To change the fuzzy match minimum quality, go to
Options -> Profile -> Settings -> Fuzzy Index.

The default is 70%, but you can change it to any number.

It’s probably normal if you don’t have fuzzy matches at first. Transit “remembers”, but if you just started the memory will have nothing or very little.

Here is your new assignment:

05_part_270 4,500

Please let us know, when you think file will be done.

Another question: I tried to create a macro for the hyphens. So I put °°° on CTRL-F12. But then I get an “error running macro” message when pressing CTRL-F12 afterwards.

Any ideas?” Try using a letter instead of the F12 key?

Didn’t work. Tried running Transit as an administrator as well. Strange, but what can you do? Will type °°° manually instead. I’m just glad I can finally get cracking. (-; I’m reading the user manual now, as it doesn’t work for me either. Will try to find a solution to this.

I confirm translating file 05_270_DEU and estimate that it´ll be done by tomorrow evening.

Thank you for making it more simple. Unfortunately when I run the Transit.XV.exe I receive the following error messages:

Unable to locate Scripting Xtra “DM’Fade needed by function “DMFadeReg” called from this file.The file may not run correctly.

and: Uanble to locate Scripting Xtra “BudAPI” needed by function “baRegister” called from this file. The file may not run correctly.

Sorry it did not worked out.
Please answer the following question and see our point below:

-What operating system do you have and where did she save the zip file? Perhaps
don’t save it in Documents and Settings because it might be a protected folder
under Windows, but rather into something like C:\Temp, for example.
– Have you got administrative rights to install programs on you computer?
-Did you install file from DS or from the webpage?

Most important is NOT to double left mouse button click on the zip file but to
RIGHT click and expand the contents into a NEW folder, OUTSIDE of the zip
file.

HI everyone!
ok, they are ants… I found out (later in the text)!

Hi

here are my answers:

> – what are the procedures if you are not certain of your translation?
Check the glossary for similar terms.
If possible, translate and mark as Translated, and put a + at the end
fo the segment.
If no idea leave it as is, put a + at the end, and write a separate
note about it.

> – how do we deal with hyphens when translating?
Always use °°° instead of hyphens. A macro can be used in
Transit.

> – how do you attach a glossary to a project and transfer the terms into your translation?
Import glossary. Open Project and attach with Project – Settings –
Termstar Dictionaries. Must be the only dict attached to the project.
Then open first language pair and choose Edit – Insert all Terms from
Dictionary.

> – how do you mark a segment as Translated and what is the shortcut
> key to transfer the text from the fuzzy window? (ALT 2 jumps without transferring the contents.)
Mark as translated: ALT INS
Transfer from fuzzy window: ALT ENTER

> – what is the rule for quotation marks?
Do not use double quotes. If they are found in an English segment they
may be used for that segment.

> – how do you deal with Chinese characters when you get to them?
Do not mark Chinese segments as translated. For mixed English and Chinese
segments translate the English part. Skip Chinese segments starting
with N/A.
