Arabic translation

Post by hermestrismi »

The main purpose of this thread is to discuss the arabic translation of Wesnoth.
Until now, I added only the translation of the wesnoth-editor while I am in the middle of the translation of wesnoth-anl and wesnoth-anl
Notes:
- the units names will be translated as they are in the english version since many mythological creators personification in games can raise issues for some people between who classify them as mythes and who didn't (such as Jinn جن , phoenix (A'nkaa) عنقاء , goblein (h'inn) الحن, ..). this decision is only permanent and can be changed after discussion ,
- male and female adjectives and names will be translated with as a male with sign '/' followed by the female prefixes. the exception of course is 'only female' units, known female heroes and irregular female words. (so 'جميل/ة' means nice man/woman)
- the translation to arabic is a very hard task as you may know especially where no similar languages exist (hebrew, persian, kurdish ...) and so this work will take probably a long time between translation, testing, improving, reviewing feedbacks ...) .
And of course, any contributions will be welcomed
Update
This week: Tale of Two Brothers (tb) is complete and have been sent along with the previous one (anl)
total translated sentences this week: 348 :)

Now, I am working on units' names and I just finished two races
