Ukrainian localization: October 2021 (#68)

Greetings, friends, and good health to you!

October has been very intense for the team. Projects old and new, streams, video calls, podcasts, we’ve had it all this month so let’s dig right in.

Ukrainian game localization

Being localized

Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition 97% of the main text is done. Just a tiny bit left.

We’ve also started working on additional content and are 8% done at the time of this report.

Most active members of the team for this project in October were: Anastasia Rantyuk, Solomia Kotyai, Anna Tsvira, Rostyslav Fedorko and Anna Chyrva.

Atom RPG: Post-apocalyptic indie game is 86% complete. The biggest file (containing all the male lines) is complete, volunteers are now working on the last file which is much smaller, containing «only» 128 000 words.

We’re still working on There Is No Light. It’s hard to talk about specific progress, as the text is being released in batches, with 11 000 words in the project total at this time. Yurii Dragon, Dana Vosnyuk, Sophia Shul and Bohdan Peredrii are working on translation and editing.

In the distant past, about half a year ago, the mighty SBT Dragon has besieged several game kingdoms and the lords of one such domain have finally relented and agreed to have Ukrainian spread in their reals. And so we’ve begun working on Tales of the Neon Sea. This project contains approximately 84 000 words, with 22% being done at this time.

Being edited

Editing the Banner Saga 3 is slowly tugging forward. The dialogues part is 28% done, with 66% overall progress (124 000 words total).

Several more files for Kingdom Come: Deliverance have been edited further. The story line is more than half done, we’ve also edited some of the side quests and miscellaneous stuff.

Progress made with Into the Breach as well. It’s completely translated, editing is 36% done.


Friends. The Official Cookbook was released by MAL’OPUS this October.

It contains recipes that will be an excellent find for both the fans of the series and the regular enjoyers.

Video subs

Our fans on Patreon were able to view the Diablo 2 cinematics with Ukrainian subtitles: Act 1: the Sisters’ Lament  and Act 2: Desert journey.



First of all we would like to brag that we’ve had a meeting with Maksym Strikha, where he shared his experience in book translation, especially historically-themed ones. This event was made possible by Roman Hardashuk.

Tetiana Cherednychok and Sofia Shul explained about video game translation:

Ivan Yankovyi has made a montage of various curious moments from the last SBTournament (psst, there’s going to be a new tournament soon, so stay tuned). He also made an article with a little interview with some of the tournament participants, where they spoke about their general impressions, difficulties, expectations and more: SBTournament: aftermath

Yanis Verminko prepared a new podcast concerning the quality of volunteer-made translations.
