[These pages concern interesting correspondence between our translators and project managers at KENAX, mostly concerning the famous Jade Dynasty translation project.]

Tonight it’s not possible, but I could do it tomorrow (if it’s not too late).   —————————-   Hello thank you for getting back to me… It was a shorter task than I expected, I did it myself. Thank you anyhow.   —————————-   Can you contact us via the Open Ticket system, please? There’s […]

Hi ! Sounds good to me! My PayPal accout as usual:[email protected] Thanks, and I’m looking foward to working on some files again soon. They are a lot of fun. Cheers   —————————-   The segmentation does not necessarily stop at meaningful points within the text, so you should try to form the most correct/appropriate plural […]

says that we lost you. If I may ask, is this due to payment issue or something else? If it’s payment, just said that client finally approved payment for first batch of BOI files and he estimates 6 banking days for it to clear. The client still hasn’t paid for the final work on JD […]

Okay I informed about the glossary(ies) butly I can’t say for sure either, I’ve been working only on glossary files for a few days now I must have 50 of them with different names. I think I used glossary 14may to create the capsfix so if she needs to compare it might be the best […]

The example he gives, with ‘coutelas’, is the term showing up in glossary, I found it wrong […]

This capitalization thing is seriously puzzling me. Do people even realize that the capitalization rules advised are simply the French capitalization rules? These are the rules taught to every French kid in elementary school. People marketing themselves as French translators should know this better than anyone else. I have already written 3 different sets of […]

I’m sorry, I’ve uploaded the file 15t twice. The good file is the one entitled : 1275766123-French_JD_100201_Localize_15t – French Proofread.xls   —————————-   Is there something I can help you with ? if so please let me know. Respectfully   —————————-   Unfortunately, no. Unless you can do German too? ‘s in charge of the […]

I believe amulet was a term that virtually never occured in JD, so “Amulett” was “free” as the translation for charm. In this project, I think Glucksbringer is a good solution given the fact that amulet does occur regularly.   —————————-   yes, I will fix up the other two files according to my notes. […]
