  1. What's new in this club
  2. You're absolutely right. I was thinking of using anglicisms for a moment, since many pokemon communities also use those to talk, and it's perfectly normal. But as you said, that can be seen as a lazy translation (since that's the very core of the anglicism concept). That's why we tried to adapt some words, actually, there were several sentences that said something like this: "puedes barrer con el equipo contrario" or (in the case of the set up) "mejora tus estadísticas en combate para vencerlo". I think we can work out with those for a moment. Thank you all for your responses, and if you want to collaborate, feel free to PM me or @Fernan100tifiko at any moment ^~^.
  3. First of all, thank you very much for translating Reborn. I know of people who could not play the game because they were not confident enough in their English to be able to enjoy such a text-heave game, so it is great that this is getting done. Now, this said, the main problem with these terms is that you are trying to translate words that only exist in English. For many games, since all the metagame discussion happens entirely (or at least mostly) en English new words are created that only exist in that language, and so they do not have a translation to other languages. If we take "sweep" as an example (and simplifying things a lot because both "sweep" and "barrer" have a bunch of meanings but I don't want this example to go on forever), we could say that apart from the usual meaning of "Clean an area by brushing away dirt or litter", sweep has an additional meaning as something like "to KO all the remaining pokemons of the opponent with a single pokemon, which will usualy be faster than them and KO them with a single hit". This second meaning does not have a translation in Spanish, because such a word does simply not exist. So, long story short, you're in a field of eggplants XD (For the totally lost: the fact that the translated sentence doesn't work is actually the joke). So, what can you do? First, you have the easy solution proposed above by LightningZeno, of just not translating the word, and you use "sweeper" and "sweepear" and whatnot. This does the work, and although I think it's completely fine to find such a phrase in a casual conversation or a forum, the fact that it will go to the dialogue of the actual game I like it less. It reads like lazy translation, and it can be off-putting. Another risk of this technique is that people who rely too much on it end up overdoing it, and making up anglicisims for words that actually exist in the target language, or falling in false friends. Proof check well your translations to not end up writing something of the likes of "librería de javascript" or "gobierno conservativo". It is nevertheless a possible solution that can get the work done. Sor some words you can get away with clarifying what you mean with context or examples. Let's take as an example, "all you need is set up and...", and the translation that didn't work, "todo lo que necesitas es prepararte y...". If you just add something like "todo lo que necesitas es prepararte con movimientos como Danza Dragón o Paz Mental y...", it's crystal clear what you mean. Everybody knows Dragon Dance and Calm Mind, and should be able to make the abstraction to what they have in common, so it works. Another thing you can do is to try to assign new meaning to already existing words. This may need some obvious context the first times, but it can work. Going back to the sentence above: "all you need is set up and sweep". If you go to the RAE's dictionary, you actually find that the eighth meaning of "barrer" is "Vencer de forma contundente a un adversario." For example, "El Barça barrió al Madrid en el partido del sábado". It's not an exact match, but you can make that work. "todo lo que necesitas es prepararte y barrer (a su equipo)" can actually work acceptably well. The good thing of this is that once you have introduced the term and made the reader familiar with it, you can actually use it more without being so worried about the context because the word will start carrying the meaning on its own at some point. It may also be a possibility to try to find a Spanish speaking competitive pokemon community to see how they actually speak, and just use the terms they use. Although this will most likely take you to solution one. So, in conclusion, the problem is hard, and probably whatever you do will feel unnatural for some and will leave someone unhappy. Translating is hard and translating words that only exist in one of the languages even harder. As in all good translation, you will probably need to go case for case deciding what is best for that exact situation, considering the context and the information that has already been given to the reader, so there is probably no exact match for each word that you can substitute always and have it work. I wish you the best of luck, I hope the ideas I give you above provide you with tools for the task and I am looking forward for the final result.
  4. Para Pokemon con movimientos especiales siempre es bueno que sepan Paz Mental, ya que incrementa el Ataque y Defensa Especiales; lo recomendable es que tambien tengan un valor de defensa y velocidad altos, para asi al usar dicho movimiento, puedan durar mas en batalla y tener mejores resultados
  5. Yep, you definitely gave me some ideas, thank you so much. If anybody else has some ideas, specially relating to "Set up" (moves like Dragon Dance or Spikes that can be "stacked" to produce beneficial results), I would be really, really, really thankful.
  6. Hola, voy a intentar ayudar pero hay algun termino en el q no he reparado nunca la verdad (no se si esto deberia estar escrito en ingles o español la verdad) Set up. Me lo salto porq no estoy familiarizado con este termino Sweep. Si te digo la verdad entre mis amigos es muy comun hablar de un pokemon q actua como "sweeper" o hablar de "sweepeo"(cuando usas danza dragon por ejemplo), sin traducir el termino en sí. Como substantivo "sweeper" trata de reflejar que el pokemon se emplea para acabar rapido con rivales, asi que yo creo que lo mas preciso seria tratarlo con algo que refleje esto, quizas, algo como "liquidador" podria servir. Support moves. Lo traduciria simplemente en este caso por movimientos de apoyo porque la verdad es que en este caso creo que ambos terminos son similares, sino iguales en ingles y español. Stall. Como estilo de combate yo lo traduciría como manipulacion del terreno la verdad. Utility pokemon. Yo usaria algo como pokemon versátiles o pokemon adaptables a distintas estrategias/estilos de combate. Wall. Como substantivo (tanto el pokemon como la estrategia de este) yo usaria simplemente, muro, pero en lo referido a verbo como en el ejemplo que pusiste yo creo que usaria simplemente soportar o resistir. Cleric. Lo traduciria como curandera o sanadora, o lo que suene mas pro jajajajaja Lamento no ser de mucha ayuda, pero espero al menos haber dado ideas...
  7. Hey, it's me again with some translation shenanigans. So, you know some common terms that exist in the Gaming world. Tank, sweep, Cleric, you catch my drill. However, there's a catch, and that is because those terms are sometimes related exclusively to the English language. Things like Set-up, stall, support moves are not that common in the Spanish language, because, if you try to translate them, then all the sense made in the sentence is lost. For example: "all you need is set up and take him down". If you were to read this line normally you would think "oh, so i have to use a bunch of boosting moves and utility moves". But, if you tried to read this sentence translated, it loses all sense: "todo lo que necesitas es prepararte y derrotarlo", because now Ame says basically that you need to prepare yourself and beat him. That doesn't make a lot of sense. That's why I'm asking you this. If you may have an accurate translation for these words specifically, not just an adequate translation, it's more like a word, or a phrase that fits into the battling context of Pokemon, please tell me, especially about these terms: "Set up" (I'm referring to as moves like Swords Dance or Toxic Spikes, moves that you can "stack" to be beneficial in battle) "Sweep" "Support moves" "Stall" (basically what Toxapex does 24/7) "Utility Pokemon" "Wall" (as in "That stupid fat blob walls everything) These are the ones that come to my mind, but if you have any suggestions, feel free to drop them down below. Thank you ^~^
  8. Hahah thanks, I thought it was also something Lumi could come up with, SUPER Pokémon, like Eve designs it but it is her sister, iirc the beneficiary of the project, who names it.
  9. "I need a hero, i'm holding out for a hero, till the end of the night" And right there, Kithas appeared as the hero of this translation project. THANK YOU SO DAMN MUCH!!!!!!!!!
  10. I gave it a thought and maybe going by the simple way we could make it about S.U.P.E.R. pokémon, lol, going by Sistema Unificado Pokémon de Energía Redundante? It's just an idea hahah feel free to change it. It could be also kept the PULSE denomination in english
  11. Hey everyone. The title says it all. It's highly important to find an important translation to the 'Pokemon Ultimation Link System Exaggerata', so i want to know your ideas about a good spanish acronym ^~^
  12. Pokémon Reborn ha sido una joyita desde el día en que salió a la luz... -Tiene una historia que te cautiva desde el primer momento. -Cuenta con personajes entrañables con los cuales te podrías llegar a identificar, y no solo eso... También te hacen sentir compasión o insensibilidad al enterarse de su pasado o sus objetivos. Realmente te pone las cosas en perspectiva. -Los líderes no son autoridades significativas ni mucho menos... Son personas con un pasado, con una historia que contar... -La dificultad es despiadadamente salvaje, y cuenta con un sistema tan ingenioso (como es el de la obediencia) para asegurarse de mantenerlos al margen de niveles, evitando el camino fácil de derrotar a nuestros oponentes (por medio del sobreleveleo). Eso impulsa al jugador a crear nuevas estrategias con sus Pokémon y con los Efectos de Campo (Field Effects); un combate incluso podría llevarlo a rehacer su equipo con el único motivo de alzarse con la victoria. -La banda sonora (si bien no es propia del juego) se adapta muy bien a las situaciones en las que nos encontramos, y dan una atmósfera tan real que nos mete en el papel del protagonista. Es por esto que me apena tanto que un juego como este no tenga el reconocimiento que se merece. Y es algo que estoy dispuesto a cambiar... La única razón por la que el juego no es tan conocido es por el idioma, que está exclusivamente en inglés, y eso desanima a la gente hispanoparlante cuando quieren probarlo. Estoy seguro que si tuviera una traducción sería mucho más conocido y aceptado por la fanaticada que aprecia proyectos como estos. Es por eso que creé este grupo. No pretendo que sea EXCLUSIVAMENTE para personas de habla hispana, sino para todo tipo de personas que estén dispuestas a ayudar con este proyecto el cual me hace mucha ilusión. Pueden tener conocimientos del idioma español para ayudar con la traducción, o podrían tener conocimientos sobre el juego al 100% y de esa forma ayudarnos en el contexto de las frases. TODO TIPO DE AYUDA ES NECESARIA Y SERÁ REALMENTE APRECIADA. En lo personal, este juego me ayudó en épocas difíciles (sin bromas ni nada) y es por eso que estoy tan agradecido que lo menos que podría hacer sería darlo a conocer a tanta gente como sea posible. Tengo más que decir, pero creo que eso bastará por ahora... Invito a todos aquellos que les guste este juego, que les guste Pokémon en general, a colaborar con el proyecto. Estoy seguro de que podremos lograr grandes cosas... Se lo debemos, yo se lo debo ...
