Quick Reference Book for Chinese Translators
« on: June 24, 2014, 04:17:26 pm »
     I would recommend motivated Chinese Estiah players to participate in Chinese translation for Estiah2, through
http://www.estiah2.com/i18n. This will not only contributes to attracting more Chinese players, but also provides you a chance to leave your own footprints in a good game like this.
     For the sake of standardization, we need to fix the translations for some terms, especially basic concepts, items, names and locations. There are two purposes of this thread:
  • List the standard translations for the terms to be referenced
  • Ask for better translations for the terms
So, check this before you translate "charm" into 魔石. laugh
Don't hesitate to suggest better translations on the terms below, especially those yellow ones. Nothing is completely settled, except for the name of the game I suppose.  ;)
Please refer to http://144.76.99.235/#charms for charm name translations if you want

Btw, we set up a QQ群 316674395. Please join and share better translations with us if you don't mind.
