Greetings, friends! We are finally poking our head out from beneath all the workload. We’re extremely proud of the books and games releasing now with our translation, and we hope you like them as well. So let us quickly do an overview of SBT Localization’s work throughout the summer.
OFFICIAL RELEASES AND UPDATES
Tales of the Neon Sea was updated and some errors in the translation were fixed. Now this cyberpunk detective game featuring robots and cats is even more pleasant to play.
Developers rarely go back to their old titles, but it happened in this case: The Testament of Sherlock Holmes, released 12 years ago, received a Ukrainian language patch this July.
Baldur’s Gate 3 received Ukrainian localization at release, on August 3rd. This was an enormously difficult job for us, and we are proud of the work we did. It is worth noting that the translation was released without full editing, so small fixes are still being applied.
If you wish to notify us of a mistake, please provide a screenshot with the mistake’s description. You may use the #baldurs-gate-3 channel in our Discord or just contact us through our website by choosing the “Repoer an error in Baldur’s Gate 3” topic.
More about this project:
MAL’OPUS released the “The Art and Making of Hogwarts Legacy” art book. In it, you can learn different interesting titbits about the game’s development and gaze upon marvellous detailed illustrations.
You can also pre-order the official Fallout cookbook.
And that’s not all our work, some things are releasing at the same time as this report, so let’s keep the suspense alive. Just follow our socials and support Ukrainian translators.
EDITS AND TRANSLATIONS
Unfortunately, we have precious little time right now for volunteer projects, although some progress was made after all:
Liftoff: FPV Drone Racing translation is being edited and tested while we’re also translating some additional text. The Ukrainian localization is already available in the game.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is 47% through the editing process. The Ukrainian localization is available in the game.
Into The Breach is 76% through the editing process. We are preparing a mod with the Ukrainian language, but still hope to have the developers add it in an official capacity.
Atom RPG: Trudograd is 82% translated.
Planescape: Torment is 13% translated.
In June we translated the Diablo IV trailer subtitles for the game’s release. This happened just because we have huge fans of this franchise in our ranks.
Bohdana Vozniuk wrote a review for the God of War lore book – Side by side with gods.
Our members visited Games Gathering 2023 Kyiv in August. How it went and what was different about it, in the article.
Welcome to the new members!
We wish them boundless inspiration, interesting projects, sharp translations and decent pay to boot.
