If Lufia DS had a Dutch version

Postby SinReVi » Sun May 20, 2012 5:12 pm

Since Lufia II was released in Dutch, I thought, what if Lufia DS also got a Dutch translation?
So I translated a bit of the beginning into Dutch myself.
Well, more like rewriting it into Dutch so that it fits within the character limits used in the dialogue of the English version, so I left out some little things. Edited a ROM with a hex editor, since I don't know any better.
May or may not continue... since I already did what I wanted to, which was to translate a few scenes into Dutch.
Though the parts with the switch and when they meet Ruben weren't translated until after I made the video, so they're screenshots only for now. I'll make a video of that after I clean up the text from the tutorials, since I'm not satisfied with them right now.

Screenshots

Image
Original English: Destroy the earth? Yer gonna have to get by me first!

Image
Original English: Well, this isn’t something you see every day... Maxim! What should we do?

Image
Original English: Let’s go Professor! I’m sure something amazing awaits us!

Image
Older version. Ran out of space to write =P

Image
And this didn't fit either

Image
Original English: Whoa, really? You mean this ship can fly?

Image
Original English: Whoa! What a creepy temple!
Also had this as "Whoa! Wat een enge tempel!" first, but that seemed a bit out of character for Maxim, since that means he's calling the temple "scary", and not necessarily "creepy".

Image
Original English: Oh, I don’t know. It’s got a certain volcano-y charm to it.

Image
Original English: I don’t see anything else we can do here. Sometimes you’ve just gotta trust your luck!

Image
Original English: Whoa, this place is bizarre! What kind of temple is this?

Image
Original English: Hey, are you alright?

Image
Original English: Ruben, what happened here?

Image
Original English: What do you think? I’m going to kick his butt!

Image
Original English: Careful, Doc. You’re a little old to be fighting.
Had to be a bit creative because of the character limit, so now Maxim just asks " Uh... aren't you a little old to fight?"

Image
Earlier version. Didn't have enough space for an extra character so I could add a space after Maxim's question. Besides it sounds a bit weird, Maxim asking two questions like that.
Maybe I should change it into "Pas je wel op? Je wordt al oud, prof!" if that fits. But the one from the previous screenshot is funnier IMO.

Image
Original English: Let me also tell you about the “Level Boost” option.

Image
Maxim's title

Image
Item names

Image
World Map



Image
Gades is talking nonsense for now. (I didn't translate the intro, except for Guy and Tia's line)
He's calling Arek a monkey =P
