German UI translations needed?

Post by kurzkopfgleitbeutler » 19 Feb 2016, 10:10

So.. hi there, I'm a long-time fan of Morrowind, and of OpenMW. I'm a native German speaker as well, and I'm wondering whether I could help with anything like UI translation or some of the sort. Is there a need for such?

Hey kurzkopfgleitbeutler,

as nobody has replied to your introductory post I'll do that:

First of all, welcome to our forums. :)

I'm a bit confused about your offer though. What do you mean by "UI translation"? The in-game interface should be properly translated when playing with a localized version of OpenMW. If this is not the case I would consider it a bug, so you should file a bug report on our bugtracker (if scrawl isn't yet aware of this issue).
--> Bugtracker: https://bugs.openmw.org/
--> How-to: https://wiki.openmw.org/index.php?title ... Guidelines

If you want do help us furthermore, the only other translation-related thing that comes to my mind are the German subtitles for our upcoming release commentary videos. I do these myself - as German is my mother tongue - but anyone proofreading those would be a great relief. Just let me know if you're interested - or simply watch the current video with German subtitles (see viewtopic.php?f=20&t=3381) and PM me your opinion. :)
