#8392 closed patch

BASS, German translation

Description

There's a brief thread on one of Revolution's forums - http://www.revolution.co.uk/_forum.php?neuron=1&topic=2820&open=1&page=0 - that mention a translation error in the German version of BASS. When activating Joey at the beginning of the game, he says "We're ONE-TWENTY METRES above the GROUND!". In the German translation he says "Wir befinden uns EINUNDZWANZIG METER über dem ERBODEN!" which is off by a factor ten.

We already patch around some strange and/or missing translations, so perhaps we should fix this one too?

Well, the factor is ~6, not 10, but yeah...

Fine by me!

comment:2 by eriktorbjorn, 16 years ago

English "metres" and German "meter" aren't the same?

comment:3 by fingolfin, 16 years ago

Oh, they are the same, but 120 / 21 is about 6, not 10. Remember, I am a professional nitpicker -- that is, a mathematician ;-).

Ah, you meant the patch description. I blame that on late lunch.

Anyway, I assume that means the text itself is correct, so I'm applying the patch.
