Re: Friday Facts #365 - Future plans

Script for downloading translations from Crowdin

The idea for this came up during the long drought of updates after 1.0 which left a lot of strings (especially the spidertron-related ones) untranslated for months even though the strings were already translated on Crowdin. The script uses the Crowdin API to pull all the strings for a particular lan...

Re: Improve translation pipeline

As a workaround I have come up with a script that downloads all the strings from Crowdin using the Crowdin API.

Re: testing translations locally

I have come up with a script that downloads all the strings from Crowdin using the Crowdin API. It works well and doesn't actually need the text conversion, although it does need to sort the strings into files and then match the file names and locations with those in the game directory. https://gith...

Improve translation pipeline

Currently the build pipeline seems to work like this: Pull strings from crowdin Build the game Publish new version to steam Push new strings to crowdin There is a glaringly obvious flaw in this process. Whenever there are new strings, translators don't get a chance to translate them until the build ...

Re: [1.1.0] Language change from main page does not work

Doesn't work for me - 1.1.1 (build 57050, win64) In fact the language selector in the options dialog also doesn't work, I have to quit the game to make it take effect. EDIT: I noticed there is a little icon that says restart required... That's hard to notice, usually programs tend to bombard me with...

[HU] many strings need review

I just finished going through all the strings in the Hungarian translation. I found that many strings have more than one upvote despite being grammatically incorrect, these should be fixed. The common errors are incorrect comma usage and using "noun trains" which exist in English but not i...

Re: crowdin download doesn't return latest state

Thanks for the reply. I just tried downloading it today, after going through the entire list of translations and adding lots of new ones and fixes. The URL is https://crowdin.com/backend/download/project/factorio/hu.zip . But when I look in tutorial.ini inside that file I still see level-01=baleset ...

[1.0.0] Logistic networks

The following strings are problematic to translate into Hungarian: gui-logistic:network - I suppose this is put before the "#xxx". It should be replaced with a string that has "Network #__1__" so it can be translated correctly as "__1__. hálózat". gui-logistic:cell and ...

Re: testing translations locally

Turns out it's not a simple rename and overwrite. There are minor syntax differences in the files downloaded from Crowdin that Factorio chokes on: unconfirmed-mod-changes="__1__ __plural_for_parameter_1_ {1 = mod | rest = mods} __ megváltozott. CONTEXTREQUEST" This two-line string is repre...

crowdin download doesn't return latest state

I just tried to download the Hungarian translations from Crowdin and apparently it doesn't return the latest state of the translations. For example in tutorial.ini: level-01=baleset Yet if you look at the corresponding string in crowdin (https://crowdin.com/translate/factorio/124/en-hu?filter=basic&...

Re: Translation update process implements a forced push of English locale into non-English locales.

This problem is very much real with the Hungarian translation. When 1.0.0 came out I was surprised that the language has automatically switched to Hungarian (it was always English before) but lots of strings were still in English. Then I looked up how to actually do translations and noticed that (ap...

[1.0.0] trains-basic-signals.ini / label:block

This string just says "Block" but in game it is suffixed with a number to produce "Block 1", "Block 2" etc. In Hungarian the natural way to write this would be "1. blokk", "2. blokk" etc. Please change this to the format "Block __1__" such ...

[Klonan] [1.0.0] Tutorial buttons broken in half / might be hidden with localization

English is such a compact language. When the texts of these buttons are translated to Hungarian, they take up much more space. Here the text of the last button is cut in half, and I can imagine that if the texts were even longer, the whole button could be pushed out of the visible area, making it im...

testing translations locally

Is there a way to download the translations and inject them into the game to save the waiting for the next release and also allow for a more interactive workflow?
Crowdin allows download but it gives a zip containing .ini files, and there are no .ini files in the Factorio directory inside Steam.

I agree with this. Elevator music is optional, since I play with music disabled.
