Free & open source game of

Translation complete!

Filed under: News — daniel @ 1:33 am

Good news: I just put the finishing touches on the English translation of FreeTrain! However, since this translation was made without being able to build the modified source to check that the translation fits and makes sense, it is in its current shape without doubt far from perfect.

Right now, I am struggling with getting this to build with SharpDevelop 2.1. Anyone familiar with C# development in general and SharpDevelop in particular, should feel extremely free to give a helping hand!

In the meantime, let’s drool over this gargantuan screenshot of a FreeTrain game in progress…

  1. Awesome stuff Daniel. Next task, making it build/run properly.

  2. Well, with a few tweaks and not without glitches, it actually builds and runs now. Some functions are out of order still, but the good news is that we can see the translation in action now, and embark on the long way of making FreeTrain’s English ‘dress’ fit better.

    Charlie, when you have this up and running on your machine, could you perhaps make post here outlining the progress so far?

  3. Will do!

  4. Hello, everyone.
    I’m one of a contributer in Japanese project.
    I have made several graphics and some souces.
    But in thease days, I left alone the project because Mr. Kawaguchi has left the project and I become busy too.

    Today I found this site by chance, and know your project.
    If I found this project more earlyer, I would be able to help translation (tough I’m not so good at English).
    As I mentioned above, the development of FreeTrain is almost suspended. And as you know, FreeTrain is still not so polish upped game.
    I hope your project will progress successfully and will growth worldwide project. And will implove FreeTrain more attractive game!

  5. Hi C477, nice of you to drop by!

    What FreeTrain may lack in polish, it surely makes up for in charm. I personally adore its graphical style and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere in the game!

    The translation is indeed done, but far from completed. While translating, I stumbled upon quite a few ambiguities that I might or might not have gotten right. One thing that I can think of now (and one of the first strings I translated) is the default ‘name’ of a game: “ななしさん”. First I thought of it as a personal name “Mr. Nanashi”, then as a mountain “Mt. Nanashi”. Then I realized that ‘Nanashi’ itself might not a proper noun, but rather a compound of ‘na’ and ‘nashi’ i.e. “noname” “untitled” (which makes a lot of sense in the context). What is the answer?

    I have a lot of other questions, so if you want to give a helping hand to my translation effort, feel free to join the devel mailing list. It’s just me and Charlie so far, so we wouldn’t mind a bit of company. :)
