Translation request: RTMT T-RAM Stations
« on: July 18, 2009, 02:18:54 AM »
This is a request for translations for the RTMT T-RAM Stations, on behalf of the RTMT team. These stations are currently released in interim form, they will be integrated in RTMT V4 - see this Annoucement. If required, the interim stations can be downloaded from here.

In the attached zip file the various LTEXT files have already been assigned the proper offset Group ID for each language. After translating the LTEXT files into the language of your choice please post the file containing the translations to this thread. I will take care of the necessary merging of the various LTEXTs.

The translation into French has already been taken care of. I am not sure that there is a need for US English and UK English but if so please let me know. The translations still to be done are:

  • 0x04  German  done
  • 0x05  Italian  done
  • 0x06  Spanish  done
  • 0x07  Dutch  done
  • 0x08  Danish  done
  • 0x09  Swedish  done
  • 0x0a  Norwegian
  • 0x0b  Finnish  done
  • 0x0f  Japanese  done
  • 0x10  Polish  done
  • 0x11  Simplified Chinese  done
  • 0x12  Traditional Chinese  done
  • 0x23  Portugese

Please note that the texts starting with "Monthly Cost" contain variables enclosed by '#', do not modify the contents.

Thanks in advance to all translators for their help.

Excellent, ussagus, thanks a lot!

Since I just had with ussagus some exchanges via PMs about the Spanish translations, let me place here a reminder about the difference between 'tram in road' and 'tram on road':

- 'tram in road' was modelled after 'tram in avenue' and has similar characteristics: the tram tracks are in the middle of the roadway, and the distinct texture under the tracks indicates that the trams run on reservation; other traffic (cars, trucks, buses) runs on the traffic lanes on each side of the central reservation;

- 'tram on road' features no reservation, the tracks are placed directly on the road texture and trams run with other vehicles.

English very conveniently allows these very 'tight' expressions like 'in road' and 'on road'. It is much less simple in some other languages. Therefore, I suggest that the translation of 'tram in road' should if possible try to imply the notion of a central reservation - even if this means having to use a longer description; on the other hand 'tram on road' can mostly be translated literally.

To illustrate: the French translation of 'tram in road' was defined as 'tram en milieu de route', i.e. 'tram in the middle of the road' - the idea of the reservation being implicit to the location of the tracks in the middle of, but not on, the road. This is of course not perfect, but close enough.

Enclosed are the Swedish and Finnish versions. ;)
I hope vester and ExiLe could get some help from the Swedish version when translating into Danish and Norwegian... ::)

In Swedish I called them 'spårvagn mitt i väg' (tram in the middle of road) and 'spårvagn ovanpå väg' (tram on top of road) in the Item Names.

In the Item Descriptions (those longer texts where the monthly costs and passenger capacities also are) I rewrote it somewhat to give some more explanation:
'väg med spårvagn mellan körfälten' (road with tram between the lanes) and 'väg med spårvagn ovanpå körfälten' (road with tram on top of the lanes).

And similarily in Finnish... I hope this might give some help to other translators as well...

No no it is not too late! Thanks in advance!

Actually I was waiting for the vacation period to be over and I intended to send a reminder this week, for the translations that are still missing. So this is a first reminder and there may be a second one later.

Thanks a lot to all who supplied translations until now. I am starting to integrate the various files into a single master file. There is still time to supply the few missing translations. A new request for more translations in the RTMT area should follow shortly.
