Improving the english site Z Earth - Senior - Wednesday 07/06/2006, 05:55
As you know, we are french and we may have made a few mistakes in
our translation of the site. If you see anything that seems oddly
written, bad grammar, or wrong tone, can you help us by telling us
how we should modify?
We want the english site to feels as much "natural" for a english (/
american/australian etc..) player as possible..
And finally Uppers Bob Joby - 'been inviter to attend' should be 'been invited to attend' Gina Glitt - 'keeps uses the marvels' should be 'keeps using the marvels'
Jackie - '19 years f age' should be '19 years of age' Tyler - needs a T rather than a t (see I wasn't caught like I was with general that time!)
I have finally finished. I think I have been through every page on the site but I still probably missed something!
Any reward to make my hard work woth it? Something in the collector card line never goes amiss!
I'm surprised no one saw this, since every time you post you stare at it
for a second or two. anyway, here's the quote:
Your message has been created, he will show up in the list after
validation by one of our community manager.
three (well, two and a half) things with this: First is the use of he. I
know in the romantic languages, everything has a gender, but, as I'm
sure you know, that isn't the case in english. He should be it.
the second problem is a simple missing 's' at the end of community
and the half issue is 'created'. while technically correct, it seems a bit
awkward. I'd suggest 'submitted' instead.
I don't wish to seem rude or nasty in any way but several of the ones you picked have already been mentioned by me or someone else. Also some of your corrections are just plain wrong.
Belong's does not require an apostrophe,
'If you are an addict to statistics' maybe should be 'If you are addicted to statistics'
You did pick up a few I miised and I have noticed new ones in those as well:
'At the beginning of each fight, 4 characters are randomly select from your deck.'
'At the beginning of each fight, 4 characters are randomly selected from your deck.'
'It's up to you to decide wether you want to fight for a cause or be a mercenary and work as a freelance.'
'It's up to you to decide whether you want to fight for a cause or be a mercenary and work as a freelance.'
Sorry if I came across as a bit arrogant but I just have a thing about the misuse of the English language.
New Cards Melluzine - 'cruaulty' should be 'cruelty' Leo - 'Leo find himself' should be ''Leo found himself'
and Perle - 'the cybernetics implants' is either 'the cybernetic implants' or 'the cybernetics implant'. I would go for the first one.
Looking again at Leo 'Reconverted as a Living Dead hunter' does n't quite make sense. Maybe 'Retrained as a hunter for the Living Dead'. At the moment it seems to suggest that he himself is Living Dead. Unless thats the point!
Your Profile page!
At the top it should say 'go to the message boards' instead of messages boards,
At your recent battles bit,
'you made a draw with ...' would read better as
'you drew with ...'
and with the rankings, it says (number)th no matter what number it is. it should read 1st, 2nd or 3rd, and the rest xth. eg... 121st, 1342nd, 2653rd, 166th
Oh, the exception to the rule is 11th, 12th, 13th. Confusing, huh?
