Hi there! I thought it'd be a good idea to restart the project for our Spanish-speaking readers.
I worked with Setsuna on the initial batch of Spanish translations, but unfortunately he became too busy to continue work on the project. I asked him recently if he'd be interested in resuming the project, and he told me that I could lead a new one.
Now, we're translating fifth gen stuff first, since that's the current metagame being played, and I don't know of anyone even paying attention to fourth gen anymore, so it wouldn't make sense to translate fourth gen first at this point.
Since I'm studying for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test N4 that's due this December, I can't start work on the project until December 4th, but that doesn't mean we can't start recruiting translators in the mean time! So those of you who wish to contribute, read this thread
and if you think you've got what it takes, read below to get started.
Let's get this project started again!
- If you have an excellent command of both English and Spanish, then send me a PM in Spanish with the title "Spanish Translation Project" to prove your skills. Make its length considerable so I can have a better idea of your skills if you're not native to a Spanish-speaking country.
- Once you've been chosen, be aware that every private conversation will be written in Spanish, and no one must know what is being spoken there.
- We aim to translate each guide that we have on the site. Moves, abilities and items will be the main priority for now.
- Also, please keep in mind that we need to have writing standards, not only do you need to have Spanish skills, but also composition skills. You can't translate everything literally, so you have to adapt the text to something any Spanish speaker will understand. This also means that we have to use a neutral Spanish in order to avoid feelings of alienation from people that live in the different countries, and we'll use both Spanish and English names, since Latin America gets English versions and Spain has its very own localization, so we can't leave either region behind.
- You don't need programming skills in order to participate, but you'll be asked to use simple and easy to use codes that will relieve our web masters from doing more work than they need.
- Once we're all ready to go (after at least December 4th), I'll give each of you access to the place where every assigned translation will be uploaded.
