Adrift in Danish

Postby P/o Prune » Fri Feb 21, 2020 6:51 am

Not sure if this should be posted here or in the WIP thread :wink: or maybe even under news and anouncement...
Anyway. As mentioned in another thread the Royal Danish Library is currently in contact with Denk and myself in order to gather and save IF games made by Danes.
I looked into the matter a little and found that there are some interest in Denmark towards IF games so I thought that maybe it would be possible to make Adrift "Viking friendly" 8)

So, I am now trying to convert/translate the standard library to Danish so Danes, with no no, or very little, knowledge of English can play Adrift games. (This means, of course, that someone should make games in Danish :whistle: ) But I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

(Raises hand to ask a question) Err... don't you mean "little knowledge of English"? :haha:

Here is a link to a technical detail in the wiki, which can be useful when translating the standard library to another language:

http://wiki.adrift.co/Locations#Changing_Direction_Names

It explains how to change the name of directions, e.g. "North/N" to "Nord/N".
