Should the name of the game be translated? Arduventure would be something like Arduventura in spanish. (and I think it sounds pretty awesome in spanish). BTW, I am not sure if this applies to English, but in spanish using words for small numbers is prefered: i.e.: 2 years -> 2 años -> dos años

Can’t it be something like Ardubenteuer ? :thinking:

I mean if they decide on translating graphics and text that would be nice :smiley: or maybe crappy. When I was a kid I used to watch Captain Tsubasa, but with the latin american name “Oliver Atom” xDDDD so… sometimes translation mess too much with the original content


(Kevin) #10

Nah lets keep the name the same, better for branding and searching the web. Thanks everyone! Really could use Japanese… @akkera102? @inajob?

I have a question. What does “hidden lairs” mean?
I translate “hidden lairs” to like “hidden hole”. Does it correct?
Could you please rephrase that?

Edited: translate “hidden lairs” to “hidden dungeon”


(Kevin) #15

hidden lairs = hidden dungeon

or maybe: hidden underground


(Pharap) #16

lair (plural lairs)

  1. A place inhabited by a wild animal, often a cave or a hole in the ground.
  2. (figuratively) A place inhabited by a criminal or criminals, a superhero or a supervillain.

In this case it’s supposed to be the 2nd meaning.

So ‘dungeon’ (ダンジョン) would also work (assuming it’s used in the same way in Japanese), or maybe 洞.
Basically, just use whatever you’d call the places that Link explores in the Legend Of Zelda games. このこと:

(Jordi Bayó) #19

Hi! I fix some mistakes… marked in bold.

:wink:

Cheers from Barcelona.


(Erwin) #20

Thanks for the fixes, but I am not sure of all them:

which fix?

wallet = billetera, pocket = bolsillo

Maybe es-LA vs es-ES preferences?


(Jordi Bayó) #21

Hello!

In Spain… we don’t use “billetera” for reference to a “small thing”… It’s more “located” this:

“Hecho para la consola Arduboy, este pequeño RPG cabe en tu bolsillo.” (yes, pocket)

About “Maybe es-LA vs es-ES preferences?”… ¿¿¿???

This are correct: “Recoge objetos, armas, escudos, amuletos y magia para completar tu aventura.”

:wink:
