Yes, and OldBoring, once you're done, please send your translation to Ser and me so I can translate it into Tamil! :)

Because we believe in you and your abilities. Don't take it as a negative thing, see it as a vote of confidence! :P :D

What's happening with this game? OldBoring, were you able to finish your translation? If so, did you send it on to Vijay? If not, when do you think you will be able to finish it?

Nope.

He said on the FUBAR thread on the 14th that he'd try to finish it, so hopefully within the next few days?

Just FYI: it's going to be very difficult for me to complete my translation in a timely fashion if I don't get it before the end of the week. After Friday, I won't have regular access to a PC with a full keyboard again until the 3rd. (I didn't think this would be an issue when I accepted since that was over a month ago now.)

Yeah the game is definitely going a lot longer than expected. I'm not sure if you'll get it before the end of this week (unless OldBoring has already given it to Vijay), but that's ok. At this point I expect that we'll go into the New Year. I also don't expect the 5-day rule to be strictly adhered to during next week considering that it'll be Christmas.

It's already been more than ten days, and I still haven't gotten a Mandarin translation yet.

I'm fine with translating from Portuguese to Tamil instead if it's more convenient and there are no objections.

I have no objections. I'll send you the Portuguese text.

Okay, thanks! When should I expect to see it in my inbox? I haven't gotten it yet.

I was waiting for any objections to my post. None came. I just sent you the text.

I'm sorry... but that's Italian punctuality! :twisted:

What about Chinese punctuality?! Also, if you have finished the translation, what about sending it to Vijay? That way we can still include Mandarin in the game.

Just sent my Tamil translation to dEhiN. I have a few days (or more!) left before the deadline, I'm not really sure about the quality of the translation (it could well have a ton of mistakes), and we need to allow for what linguoboy said about difficulties he faces in getting his translation done in time. That being said, I have to be honest: I have plenty on my plate as it is, and today and Thursday are the only days this week that I won't be working, plus I have a cousin over, so I don't really have time to check it thoroughly. Sorry, dEhiN, but good luck all the same!

I feel like this text has a lot of really Indo-European constructions in it that are kind of hard to translate into a Dravidian language.

Thanks VIjay; so are you working on Christmas too?!

Could my 5 days start on January 2? I'm going to very busy this week and am not planning on doing any language related stuff at all until the new year (except for thinking about my 2019 TAC).

Edit: Updating the chain for Ser.

Yes, precisely because a lot of people are not. They have to have staff working 24 hours a day with no exceptions, so they assign people to different shifts like this.

I think I'll leave that up to Ser to decide.
