Parlez-vous français? Du sprichst Deutsch? If so, a place is being made for you in Revelation Online.
The fantasy MMO announced today that French and German localization is on its way for Q3 2017. Up to this point, Revelation Online has only featured an English version, but it looks as though the team wants to break down language barriers and possibly expand the game’s audience.
You might not believe this since the only language Revelation Online is in right now is English, but the team has been working very hard to try and get more languages into the game. As they admitted in a post on their website, this took a lot longer than expected, but they’re finally making headway. By their calculations, they should have both French and German localizations up by this year. They estimate Q3 2017 as the time it’ll likely hit.
As for where the progress stands right now, the team revealed that tests for the localization of both languages are currently going on in closed servers. They want to ensure both a quality translation, as well as the polish that you might expect from a video game. For those who don’t understand the struggle of localization, it’s more than just translating words. In fact, one of the reasons localization takes so long is because some words don’t translate, and they need to find suitable solutions to this problem.
The other thing is that localization is also a programming problem, as they need to go over everything to ensure the proper text shows up in the right language. The team promises to continue the updates for this and other localizations.
“Our QA & Localization teams have already begun testing FR & DE clients via closed servers, giving them a polish and focusing on all the finishing touches required for a quality experience,” the studio posted. “We would also like to give you a small insight of what localization is and how it works. While translating the in-game text is a large localization effort, the project affects many areas of the game that all need to align, this can include: altering art assets, expanding the UI, programing, among other things.”
