After having a successful time using google docs for localisation of osu!stream, I have decided to push osu! over there. pTransl was a great system, but I don't actually have the time to maintain one more system, and therefore this is the best way forward in my eyes.

The document is publicly editable. Feel free to make any changes you see fit for languages you are proficient at.

Ask any questions in this thread.

It seems to be more convinient than localisation v1. Good idea for using spreadsheet.
Shortened url = http://bit.ly/osulocal

Got my friend to do some Italian Translations.

I'll take care of Thai translations.

Once the existing translations are repopulated, we will begin adding new ones.

I mostly took care of Polish translations and rewrote some to new page.

peppy, you realize that making this available for everyone to translate is crazy, right?
I can already see someone screwing up a lot of italian translations and i'm sure that if someone fixes them some other undoubtly-smart guy will come and screw them up again.

I hardly see the benefit of this whole thing.

Contributed :) I tried to make sentences as natural as possible, avoiding word for word translations.

I also made sure to shorten some sentences, since they could be cut by a possible lack of space ("Online Ranking" in song selection -> "Class. en ligne" instead of "Classement en ligne").

edit: I couldn't find entries for:
  1. "Always show key overlay" (Options/Input)
  2. "Enable joystick support" (Options/Input)
  3. "osu!mania layout" (Options/Input)
  4. "Symmetrical" and "Left to right" (Options/Input)
  5. "Automatically log private messages" (Options/Online)
  6. All entries in drop down lists and tabs in the song selection list (top of the screen), except for SongSelection_All

Is that normal?

Contributed by doing about 50% of the Dutch translation. Good idea, localizing osu! like that. :)

The wiki is also publicly editable. There's this nice thing called being able to roll-back changes which ensures this won't be a huge issue. The benefit is that anyone can collaborate.

I know that.
What i wonder is how you're going to know which is the correct change to roll-back to (if there's the need to), because i don't think you know all the languages the document is being translated into.

Which is bad because translations need consistency to be good.

We can deal with such issues when they arise. First of all we need a base set of translations so they can be loaded into osu!, then we can work forward from there.

Fair enough, I guess.
Thanks for the replies.
