Problem translation in french

Postby Targus » Tue Jan 24, 2017 8:14 pm

In the game, by collecting butterflies, it gives :

Thaddeus' Magnifique Magnifique Butterfly (Why 2X (names-butterfly-adjective) ??)
Alexander's Quick Quick Flyer (it's a problem)

names-butterfly-adjective=[Giant|Tender|Artful|Radiant|Glorious|Master|Magnifique|Quick...
names-butterfly-species=[Flyer|Butterfly|Moth|Dragonfly] (Note : Flyer ?? Dragonfly ??? for butterflies)


In french :
Thaddeus' Magnifique Papillon -- instead of : Thaddeus récupère Papillon Magnifique

For the French version, can you make a change?
Thaddeus attrape des (names-butterfly-species) + (names-butterfly-adjective) (ex,: Thaddeus catches some giant's butterflies)

Hey there,

thanks for the heads-up. I can do the change, but it is not the intention of the original version. In the English version the idea is that the butterfly is named after the person. It is not meant to represent "XXX catches YYY". Does that change something?

in french:
"Le papillon (butterfly) géant (giant) d'Alexander (or 'de Thaddeus)" but there are a problem with (d') and (de)
(names-butterfly-species + names-butterfly-adjective + name)
or
"Alexander capture un papillon géant' (better) -- (not problem with (d') and (de) for the name
in english:
Alexander's giant butterfly (but, in game, there are twice adjectives (Alexander's giant giant butterfly)
or
Alexander catches a giant butterfly -- my preference

----
Same problem for 'jungle':
in english:
"world-adjective" + "pck-grass-name"
in french it's :
"pck-grass-name" + "world-adjective"

Hi riadd,
How to translate the popup?
-- For example 'Level +1' ?

How to translate the word 'Mounted' when I ride an animal? or in a fight, the opponent is marked 'enemy' : how translate 'enemy'
