Hello 你好 Hola Bonjour Hallo Merhaba مرحبا

Guts and Glory is now available in other languages! 

It now has human translations for:

  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Chinese (Traditional)
  • Spanish
  • French
  • German

And Google Translations for:

  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Russian
  • Italian
  • Turkish (some human edits)
  • Arabic
  • Estonian
  • Portuguese (Brazil)

Please visit this post, if you want to help revise the Google Translations so they make more sense, or if you want to add NEW languages to the game!

Live Translations

In addition to static translations, I also added live Google Translations for Community Tracks, so players around the world can share their creations with minimal barriers (requires internet connection, of course).

The game should automatically adjust to your computer's system language, but if it does not, just visit the Settings Menu and you can select a language there.

*** Please restart the game if you change the language manually. ***

Automatic Translation Updates

As new human translations / revisions become available, they will automatically sync to the game once per week, as long as you have an internet connection.

Other Minor Changes

  • Concrete Pathways (sidewalks) are now the correct scale. You may need to edit any levels you already placed these in.
  • Fixed FPS Counter on/off toggle when returning to Main Menu.
  • Removed "Change Track" button from Level Editor's Quick Play mode.
  • Moved overlapping checkpoints in "The Main Event" level, which seems to be causing a waypoint bug for some users.
  • Updated Credits List.
  • Added a MPH / KPH toggle in the Settings Menu

Wanted: Localization Volunteers

Multi-lingual Volunteers Needed

Want to help translate Guts and Glory into other languages?

  1. Download this document.
    • Go to File-->Download As... to save a copy.
  2. Add / Edit the language translations you want to contribute.
  3. Email your changes to hakjakgames@gmail.com with a note about what you changed.

That's it!

As I receive new translations, I'll have them verified by a second party as soon as I can and manually added to the master document, which will automatically sync to the game weekly.

NOTE:  Variable placeholders {anything in curly brackets, like these} should not be edited.  Thank you!

v0.4.6 is Coming

Version 0.4.6 will upload to Steam this Thursday or Friday, with an option in the Settings Menu for over a dozen languages, as well as a MPH/KPH toggle.


Google Translate

Current translations in the document above are done using Google Translate.  This works okay for some languages, like Spanish, but not well at all for more complicated translations, such as Chinese.  So I apologize if some translations do not make any sense or say something weird.  That's why I need your help :D

Level Editor objects are currently translated live using Google Translate to save time during development since that stuff changes a lot right now.  Proper translations will be added for that as it gets closer to Full Release.

Community Tracks will always use live Google Translations, since that is the only way.


Current Languages

Below is a list of the languages that I currently have setup and need volunteers to help edit, but new language translations are welcome too:

  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Chinese (Traditional)
  • Korean
  • Japanese
  • German
  • Russian
  • French
  • Italian
  • Turkish
  • Arabic
  • Estonian
  • Portuguese (Brazil)
  • Spanish
  • Spanish (Mexico)*
  • Spanish (Argentina)*

*my understanding is that Spanish can be spoken quite differently in various parts of the world, so please correct me if I'm wrong here and can remove these variations.


Credits

Volunteers who contribute translations/edits that are used in the game, may also have their name in the credits, if desired.

Thank you for your help and please let me know if you have any questions!
