Greetings to you, all the gameaholics out there!
SBT Localization presents last month activity report.
Video Game Localization
So how are our projects doing?
In July, 16 Summer Catchers by Ukrainian developers FaceIT released! SBT Localization helped to edit Ukrainian text. We are proud to male such a contribution and grateful to developer for such an opportunity.
We also streamed Summer Catchers. Interested? Keep reading.
The Curious Expedition
Rivals part is still unedited but we will fix this very soon.
If you notice any mistakes please feel free to contact us in Discord.
We have overcame the third part of the common text of Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition — 33,31%. This is almost 400 000 слів. That’s a lot, huh?
We are grateful to the most active translator of the project — Nazar Kompaniiets.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance
The localization of Kingdom Come: Deliverance has quite a tempo. Now we have translated the main plot and a lot of side quests. The total figure is 80%.
We already have Ukrainian build, you can check screenshots out on our Facebook page.
Unfortunately, the editing process will take some time and now we have 10% of edited text. But we are sure that we will be just in time with official Ukrainian localization release.
We are planning to finish translation by the end of this year, also we will translate DLC. The biggest contributors to Kingdom Come: Deliverance project in July are Yanis Verminko, Iryna Makowska and Bohdan Peredrii.
The Banner Saga
Localization of Banner Saga 3 slowed down for a little. But we keep working on this project. Common text is translated on 70% (edited 6% ), dialogues translated on 24% (edited 20%).
We are grateful to the most active translators at this project in July especially to Yevheniia Babchunetska, Oksana Ryvko and Yurii Bisyk.
Tales From Windy Meadow
Tales From Windy Meadow localization goes slowly but steadily though. We translated 78% and edited 38%.
The most active translator at this project in July was Oleksa Mormor.
TV series and comics
We are grateful to Yanis Verminko for translation and to AdrianZP for great dubbing.
In July, new pages in Ukrainian of Outsider comics are available as well. The first chapter is comes to its end so you will be able to download the whole chapter in Ukrainian in a single file.
Other activities at a glance
Besides our intense translational activity SBT Localization has time for other interesting and useful things.
SBT Localization Holiday!
In June, 12 SBT Localization celebrated its 7th anniversary! It’s so exciting to see how much we’ve grown! In order to celebrate we organized couple of video games giveaways (Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, 7 Days To Die) and lots of other nice presents (stickers, cups, T-shirts).
We also gave away Surviving Mars as we promised on Patreon. We thank Yanis Verminko for making this happen.
