English:
I have attempted the translation from DW Shadows into german language. I have reached this goals so far:

  • Translated the file "GameText.txt" (the parts, which are english yet)
  • Translated all Tutorials (Directory "Tutorial")
  • Translated all diplomatic dialogs, which are english yet (Directory "dialog")
  • Translated 100 of 277 Helpfiles
  • Fixed other errors in the GameText.txt , which could cause ctds

    Problems not fixed:

  • Whenn beginning a new game, the buttons in the second screen (Kolonisation & Territorium) are english yet, although they are translated in the "GameText.txt"
  • The Titels in the Tutorials are english yet, because there translation causes ctds when starting a tutorial
  • The components can not be translated, because the are hardcoded

    New Version V8 (needs gameversion 1.9.0.13):
    See below in the german section

    Infos to install are included in the Liesmich.txt

    If you use the Translation, please let me know about errors, so i can fix it. The translation will be not perfect. :)

    Deutsch:
    Ich habe mich an die Übersetzung von DW Shadows gewagt und bisher folgendes erreicht:

  • Die Datei "GameText.txt" (die Teile, die noch nicht deutsch waren) übersetzt
  • Alle Tutorials (im Ordner "Tutorial")
  • Alle Dialoge der Diplomatie, die noch nicht deutsch waren (im Ordner "dialog")
  • 100 von 277 Hilfedateien übersetzt
  • Weitere Fehler in der GameText.txt behoben, welche zu Abstürzen führen konnten.

    Nicht gelöste Probleme:

  • Wenn man ein neues Spiel beginnt, sind die Buttons im zweiten Bildschirm (Kolonisation & Territorium) noch auf Englisch, obwohl die entsprechende Texte in der "GameText.txt" übersetzt sind.
  • Die Überschriften in den Tutorials sind noch auf Englisch, da eine Übersetzung dieser zu einem Spielabsturz führt, wenn man das Tutorial starten will.
  • Die Schiffskomponenten haben noch ihre englischen Bezeichnungen. Das wird sich auch nicht ändern, da sie hardcoded sind.

    Neue Version V8 (benötigt Spielversion 1.9.0.13):
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/116692431/DW%20Shadows%20Deutsch-V8-23_03_2014.exe


    Infos zur Installation in der Liesmich DW Shadows Deutsch.txt

    Wenn ihr sie nutzt, und euch Dinge auffallen, dann einfach melden, ich korrigiere das dann, wenn möglich. Wie gesagt, sie wird noch nicht perfekt sein. :)

    The component names may be hardcoded and can't be edited maybe.

    "Smuggling Evasion" - Just a guess but I would think the skill gives the ability to evade trace scanners.

    The translation, guessing from the screenshot, looks fine so far :)

    Oh... I have feared this... This is not, was i want to read. *grml* ^^
    I have searched all relevant directorys with keywords, but without success.

    Skill:
    Okay, this mean, that this Skill is good for Smuggler. Less Chance to be discovered...

    Translation:
    The Translation is not complete and not perfect. Only today i have many things in the GameText.txt corrected... Forgotten translations, to big passages (optic on the screen), formulations that are not good. *g*

    You can find the Translation here:
    //w w w.file-upload.net/download-8522238/DW-Shadows-Deutsch-V4-16_01_2014.7z.html

    EDIT:
    Hehe... this works. Only clear the spaces. :D

    Hey, great project you startet! The dream of a DW complete in German is still alive.
    I have a translatet gametext.txt (Shadows) from a person, maybe you!?! :)

    But there are no ability to change the following:
    - empire Names
    - Ship Names
    - Tech Names
    - enumeration (for example: 1st, 2nd, 3rd...)

    and I dont know if they are translatet in the official German release (DW+RotS) from dtp. It would be fantastic if Matrix Games make it free editable in a text file.

    Changes in the textfile apparently leads to text.string-errors and CtD-events. Maybe that one must start a new game without editing anything in the text files. I´m trying a savegame to play 50 years, after that I play a new game with ready text files and report the results here
    Greets :)

    I have problems with ctds too... The error GxHab. Today i found out, that this is probably a version conflict because i worked with an outdatet GameText.txt. So i must compare my GameText.txt with the newer one from patch 1.09.0.13. I think the error was caused from changed keys in the file.

    Ship Names can you set in the shipnames.txt, the enumeration is hardcoded, the Tech Names too. Empire Names i haven't found too, perhaps in the Races-directory. later i must see.

    So, I have tested the hole gametext up between 'NEW ENTRIES FOR Return of the Shakturi follow... and the end oh the file.

    error search:

    'NEW ENTRIES FOR Return of the Shakturi follow...

    - no crashes -

    'NEW ENTRIES FOR DW Domination follow...

    - no crashes -

    HighTech Research Bonus From Colony Resources

    - no crashes -

    Character Trait Xenophobic

    - no crashes -

    MANAGER OF DEALER OPERATIONS

    - no crashes -

    Pirate Defend Mission Failed Title

    - no crashes -

    GxHab System.Text.StringBuilder-error!
    maybe: Pirate Control Description Sole ;kontrolliert von{0} {1}
    - no crashes after space added -

    GxHab System.Text.StringBuilder-error!

    AchievementTitle SuccessfulRaids

    Document end
    ------------------------------------------
    new Tests from here:

    'NEW ENTRIES FOR DW PIRATES FOLLOW
    ------------------------------------------
    I think, the errors are because the German textes are longer than the English ones. the more you translate, the more violent are the crashes :(
    I will go on with testing with an existing savegame...

    the problem you are probably having is the game still needs the English version of the name to be able to run. It is kinda of dependent on that. Thats how the game knows where to put code. So if you change any files that is dependent on that the game will crash. At least that is what i think.
    Cash on hand ;Cash on hand
    So say you want to edit this the special fuction is ; so that is that the game needs, so the one proir to to that can be edited. and the spacing only needs to be a tab for it to be able to read it. This is according to all the test I have done. I have yet to play around with the Game.txt file yet. When I do There will be a tool for it shortly after wards.

    I am glad to hear this. :)
    Do not be surprised if no update occurs. I'm hard on work and have now already more than half of all help files ready.
    I also have found that some help files are not on the level of DW Shadows, so I have to adjust it. I have also added additional information to some files.

    When you have not installed Adblock+, its better to not follow the link to my file. The hoster will try to foist you with crapware. I must search an serious hoster, i would not support such a bustle. :(

    EDIT:
    I have changed the Link in first post. I use dropbox now. Please told me abouzt errors. :)

    Ich wollte eigentlich noch unzählige Dinge an der Übersetzung verbessern, wie z.B. zu lange Texte in den Beschreibungen oder andere Unstimmigkeiten, die bisweilen noch auftreten könnten. Aber derzeit kann ich nicht. Ich hatte ein... Sehr unschönes Erlebnis und muss mich in psychologische Behandlung begeben. Ich weiß nicht, wann ich wieder in der Lage sein werde, daran weiter zu arbeiten. :(

    I actually wanted to still improve countless things in the translation, such as too long texts in the descriptions or other inconsistencies which may sometimes still occur. But currently I can not. I had a very unpleasant experience ... and must put myself in psychological treatment. I do not know when I'll be back in a position to follow it up. : (

    Kein problem, ich hoffe du kommst wieder auf die Beine. Nimm dir einfach die Zeit die du brauchst.

    No worries, I hope you will recover. Take all the time you need.
