Translations: Take the day off to play Grand Master
« on: September 06, 2010, 06:20:26 am »

Update By: Pennywise

Enjoy a little Grand Master this labor day. It's a cool little NES action RPG that deserves your attention. In other news, not to boast but this is my second major patch within a months time. Incredible, isn't it? Also I am looking for a website designer and welcome a nicely designed website that isn't incredibly simplistic/obscure/hard to read at times.

Awesome, I've actually really been waiting for this one.  It'll be nice to finally play this one in English.

I haven't actually played the game yet, but I do certainly intend to; however, there is an obvious grammar error right in the middle of one of the uploaded screenshots of the game.

The dialogue shown in the screen is:

Quote
Man: That's the stuff hero's are made of!

Rody: Who are you?

It should be, "That's the stuff heroes are made of!"

While I highly admire the work of anyone who has gone through the effort of completely translating a game to another language, I do certainly hope that there aren't further cases wherein plurals are turned into possessives.

Another error is shown in the screenshots on translator's page.

In this somewhat spoilerific shot of the ending: http://yojimbo.eludevisibility.org/GrandMaster/22.png the word gratitude is misspelled as "graditude".

I hope I'm not being a pain in the rear end by pointing this stuff out, but I do strongly care because the game looks like something that would be right up my alley. I'd just love to see it as error free as is possible. If it would be at all appreciated, I'm more than willing to note any other script errors that I run across while I play, and I also volunteer myself as a proofreader for any future English translation hacking projects on the NES, SNES, or Genesis.

Alright, you got me. I got kind of sloppy when I was editing the script. They'll be fixed, can't have errors and such.

But what can you do, eh?
