Default English Translation mod for the impatient

I recently got a copy of the Russian version of KB:AP, but my Russian skills are pretty negligible. However, after glancing at the files included, many of them are named similarly to the files in KB:TL.

After about 12 hours of work mucking around with Google Translator, the modding forum, and a bit of homebrew Java code, I've made a workable translation mod.

Here's the link:

http://rapidshare.com/files/244267391/loc_ses.kfs

Install it in the /sessions/addon/ directory, replacing the one already there. (And back up your old file, for the love of all that's holy!)

A couple disclaimers:
- This is a Google Translator job, so the quality of the English grammar is pretty bad. (But it's fine for understanding the plot, at least.) I do not intend any harm toward the fine work 1C will eventually do on the "real" English version.
- Many aspects of the combat engine have been translated by copying the ability text from KB:TL rather than accepting Google's version. I may have screwed up in this and squelched something that should have remained untouched; several old abilities do not work precisely as you remember them. (For instance, scouting in the Mind tree now also boost Int. The mage multicast spell now only works when the first spell cast that turn was sufficiently cheap. Holy damage now hits demons harder as well as undead. Lots of stuff has changed.)
- I have not played the game all the way through, or even close. I believe that the translation mod will endure all the way through, but Murphy's Law has a funny way of sneaking up on you. You may find some unexpected behavior.
- This mod was only tested on v1.0, not with v1.1.

Thank you very much. I will give it a try. I am one of the impatient one.

Wow, only 12 hours and you already did a decent job....by just one person. Now I wonder why it is taking the game developers so long to get it done. I know that the 12-hour job is not very detail and as accurrate as when the final version that is fully translated but "relatively" speaking, the game should be translated in at most 2 months time.

I agree with CyberGuy, why is it taking too long!!!
Looks to me like some marketing ploy to increase sales by making the final product desirable by delay...

It takes so long because they are translating it simultaneously in many languages. english is but one of those languages.
anyways, thanks for the mod, unfortunately I decided to wait for the final game, maybe they add something new.

DOH! I deleted the Russian Demo because I couldn't complete any of the quests! TOMA MAI! (Vietnamese people say this a lot...) I don't want to re-download it again as it took me nearly 2 hours to do so last time, so I will wait for the proper demo, at least that will make it bearable until the full game is released.

Hah! I started playing with this mod and it works pretty well. The translations are a bit loopy, but it adds to the charm, IMO.

When a unit avoids a melee attack, in the Russian version it says something that looks like NOMAX. In this translation, it says BONER!

Having great fun with this regardless.
