I would say definitely thoroughly re-read and think about dialogue you write with accents. While it can be kinda funny it can also be a real pain to read sometimes :P
Just to clarify ('cause that's where the fun starts ;)) - you think there's too much accent expression in that post I made?
"Zink about all vee did für you after zee Fall of zee Dinosaurier Reich!"

How would you reword it to a level you would like?

Also, please keep in mind you have to keep a certain level of "caricature" in order to serve the storytelling. ;D

That one isn't too bad honestly, I was just more so saying give his dialogue a bit more attention to maintain mostly easy readability.

I tried writing with a German accent once. In the end, I ended up toning it way down to make the text more readable. IIRC, one of the main complaints was that non-native speakers were having trouble reading it.

Also, from my experience and also asking other Germans here, the pronunciation of the z's is more of a French thing than German. Not that it matters though. To most people it'll look like a German accent.

As this is need of another bump...

I could see his accent toned down a bit to make it easier to understand. Doesn't bother me but could certainly see how it could get to others.

I've resumed my own playthrough, to try and catch up with our own very tester. I'm only at Ep 06. Here is a memorable moment!





Spoiler:


Gotta love your male heroes! ;D

Yep, sure!
I'll read this as "keep it up, TheMajinZenki", as he's the translator and the one with most work currently. 8)
Thank you for your kind message.

I guess everybody noticed mission 11 (space) is now done? ;D

That's good to hear!

Once that route is done that means we'll be what, a stage away from being 1/3 done with the game?That's a nice milestone to reach!

Hope you guys keep up the good work!

We're currently at 41.1%. By the way - lines of text are counted for that. If you prefer counting episodes, then you'll get 36%. But I think that's less accurate. Also, this is considering the story alone, even though a lot of text has already been translated for battle quotes alone.

Once 12s will be done, the translation of the story should be around 43.7% done.
Around Episode 17's (there are three of those 8) ) is when the 50%, great achievement/trophy will be granted! ;D
So that one is about 6 missions away.
That gives you some time to think about how to celebrate. (What present will you send? ::) )

Fair points. Just looking at episode\mission count I was seeing we were to be at 13 out of 39. Didn't consider text translation wise for all the routes at the beginning. Just caught up in the heat of the moment.

Any case, that's still a lot of progress made. Don't know if I could do anything at all aside from continuing to send best wishes for any future work.

Yes, there are a lot of episodes because of the routes, bringing the total to 58 instead of 39. 8) It looks like it's SRW's way of having replay value. ;D

Keep them coming! (Not too often, and true-to-your-heart only.)
I know there'll be more moments of doubt due to the sheer size of the beast.
Oh - and you can look for translator friends too, just in case you forgot, y'know?  ::)

(I'd also suggest you buy SRW's when they come out if your standard of living allows - that'll keep us translation teams busy for decades to come. It's important to show support to the developers, too.)
