Help Building a Translation Mod
« on: January 16, 2017, 01:00:59 am »
Hi Everyone!  Member @Zodin has asked for help learning what is needed to translate the TL2 game to another language (specifically to French).

I wish translate some of Torchlight 2 mod in French translation (I'm a translator of skyrim mod from "La confrérie des Traducteurs" http://www.confrerie-des-traducteurs.fr/forum/index.php)

But I dont know how translate Tl2 mod, I've searched a guide but its outdated or too difficult :p

I've not looked at translation mods too much myself, so can anyone point Zodin in the right direction pls?

Thanks All!

The French translation already exists and can be unpacked to reference how it works.

Technically, it's easy to make, but in practice it is difficult.
Each mod contains new strings <Translate> and is necessary to find/collect these strings and translate.
We(Abramoff and I) made a utility for this process.

The French translation mod could use some editing.  There are some incorrect translations.

Unpack mods using GUTS.

Or I can do it if you don`t have editor. In any case, to create a translation mod you need GUTS.

I found my topic.

[UTILITY] Mod translator - Torch2<translate>

Kva, how many ways do you know to be awesome?  :)

I know French translation already exist but I would like translate some mods.

Hi Zodin! If the mod you will translate belongs to someone else, pls remember to get the permission of the mod's author ;)
