Katawa Shoujo - Latinamerican Spanish Translation News

Post by abscess » Fri Aug 03, 2012 11:05 pm

Making a long story short, we're a group of guys working on a latinamerican spanish translation of Katawa Shoujo. We have most of Act 1 translated and the first two days running perfectly, it lacks polishing. Right now we're looking for people interested in joining the team as translators willing to present an exam to prove their capability. We have a new blog and new forums, we hope that getting rid of the xp-dev ugliness will encourage people to be more active in the translation community for this game. Those interested in checking them out here's a link to the blog and the forum. Of course, it's all in spanish.

I'd add another pic, but the max is 3. You're only missing Kenji, anyway.

The biggest dilemma in Katawa Shoujo:
'Should I recommend this to my friends or do I want them to continue to see me as mentally healthy?'

I wish you all lots of resilience during the process.

And remember, when the words start to blur into one another and you start to unknowingly replace valid vowels with silly ones...it's time for a short break from kicking your own ass over it.

It's just so that you can kick yourselves around moreso effectively when that break ends and you get back to work. :)

I chose a good time to start learning spanish.
Hanako's favorite joke is The Aristocrats, but she never tells it because Lilly finds it really offensive. Instead, she practices her delivery in front of a mirror when she's alone. It's the only time she never stammers.

Just a random question... How would you pull off the "I see" slips in Lilly's dialogues? I once wondered if I would translate it using something as "point of view", but doesn't seem as casual...

"I see." isn't an idiom in Spanish? If it is you could just say "Lo veo." but if there isn't, that's tricky.

I believe you can put "Ya veo." sounds more normal to me.

Yeah, that's what they said when I looked it up. I'm not even close to being fluent, so "Ya veo" just sounds like "I already see" to me.

curious that peeps seem more concerned about Lilly's "I see"s than her "ara ara"s or Misha's "wahaha"s.

I'd like to join into this project!
I've lived in Mexico for 3 years now, so I'm mostly fluent.

Let's do this!

PS: Limones.
Limas*
Believe it or not, limas is lemons and limones is limes.

..Yeah.
Confusing, but true.
