Greetings to all of you! May the Ukrainian localization be as fruitful as there is ground after the rain.
While you are getting sun, we are summing up the work done in June.
Ukrainian Localization in Progress
Kingdom Come: Deliverance
Due to some unforeseen reasons, the work on Kingdom Come: Deliverance has slowed down a tad. Nevertheless, we gained control over it: the files are being translated, the translation is being edited, the kicks are being given. That’s what we consider routine and order.
To be more precise, two DLCs are completed, the third is translated by 2/3, the additional text of the interface is completed as well. The fourth DLC, which is around 110 thousand words, is left. The main text of the game is fully translated (660 thousand words), the process of editing is in progress (~60% is completed – 397 500 words).
The most significant contributors: Iryna Makovska, Karina Voloshyna, Olha Sushytska. Special thanks go to Tetiana Cherednychok for editing and organization of work on the project.
Baldur’s Gate 2: Enhanced Edition
The translation of Baldur’s Gate 2 flaws under normal conditions and we have achieved 52%.
The most significant contributors: Roman Hardashuk, Roman Maniachuk.
We have partly resumed working on Banner Saga 3. Yurii Bisyk handles the text as the editor of the project. On its basis, we will create ukrainizator.

Translation of Literature
New Ukrainian pages of Outsider were published in June. If you accidentally missed them, all publications can be found on the project’s page.
The Last of Us Part II
Here is one of little and no more hidden secrets, we have toiled. The publishing house MAL`OPUS will bring to your attention the artbook The Art of the Last of Us Part II. If you are one of the fans or just have the slightest interest in such things, pre-purchase the book to receive it among the first lucky devils and derive enjoyment from each and every picture and Ukrainian translation made by SBT Localization.
Series in Ukrainian
All episodes are free for download.
Translation of Programs
Several members of our team joined RetroArch localization in June. This utility program is pretty tiny yet due to the low priority of this task, the localization may take a long time.
Summer Translation School
Summer Translation School conducted a contest for those, who had made their first steps to pave the way to translation, in Kyiv on the 22-27th of June. SBT Localization was honoured with an invitation for speech delivery.
It may not come as a surprise that the member of our team Tetiana Cherednychok was forced to make the speech online due to the quarantine restrictions. The recording is promised to be published a bit later, so we are anxiously waiting.
The impressions I have after such experience are absolutely amazing since audience members were my future colleagues, who kindled another spark of interest in me for conquering further translation peaks with their enthusiasm. I was surprised by the activity on the students’ side during my speech. Their unconventional and independent thinking, their innovative approach to both daunting and mind-boggling localization tasks – those were the things, which made me believe in their keen interest. I fervently wish all School participants their translational dreams come true, as well as success in professional growth. Seizing this opportunity, I also want to express my gratitude to people, who organized this event for the marvellous opportunity to share the experience with students and all those, who are not indifferent game localization.
