SlayerGames is a french Kerbal Space Program player. After discovering the game through YouTube videos, he decided to give it a try and loved the game, mostly because of its infinite possibilities and very active modding community. Real-life, Slayer is very interested by rocket science, and is excited by the recent SpaceX achievements.
Involvement in the Wiki Community
After using the Wiki for a while to learn KSP, Slayer decided to help the creators by translating articles to French, thus hopefully helping the french players who don't understand the English articles.
Here's a list of the pages which Slayer currently translated :
- Kerbal Space Center: Vehicle Assembly Building, Spaceplane Hangar, Tracking Station, Astronaut Complex, Flag Pole, Launch Pad, Runway, Crawlerway, Research and Development, Mission Control, Administration Building.
- Kerbol System: Kerbol, Moho, Eve, Gilly, Kerbin, Mun, Minmus, Duna, Ike, Dres, Jool, Laythe, Vall, Tylo, Bop, Pol, Eeloo.
... and the list is hopefully going to grow more!
How to translate efficiently?
During all those translations, Slayer developed a few techniques to be faster at translating :
- Start by copying the English article.
- Use Google Translate to do a first translation of everything.
- Improve that translation (fix sentences, translations of KSP-specific words...).
- Add links to french articles
To find the official translations of KSP words, these pages are useful :
- KSP en-us dictionary to find the ID of a specific word or sentence.
- KSP fr dictionary to find the translation of that ID in french. You can also find the dictionaries for other languages here.
Pages to be deleted
I'm keeping track of pages that should be deleted here. If an admin visits my page, you know what to do :)
