    mistranslations/grammar errors/typo's(dutch)

    I've been noticing some various mistranslations/grammar errors/typo's on the Dutch server i play on

    To help Playa 'polish' the game i thought i'd make this thread where users can post screenshots of such mistakes, so if and when a dev starts working in these specific text they might fix those along the way

    PLEASE READ:

    -NO i do not have trouble with these things
    -NO i am not COMPLAINING
    -NO i did not post this thread to troll, offend or claim someone's incompetence
    -NO this thread is NOT meant for offtopic posting, ONLY post the errors/mistakes you have found in the INGAME TEXTS. If you don't have anything to say DIRECTLY relating to POSTING ERRORS or REPORTING A FIX please refrain from posting here at all
    -NO i am not trying to wage war in this thread
    -NO i don't want to hear "that is almost impossible to fix", "such things will take years", "i am not bothered by it, stop complaining, it's fine as it is" and things alike

    CoMa's/Moderaters feel free to remove pics/posts when a certain error is fixed


    Ok i will start off:

    Dutch server, upon completion Guild Battle the text under "Held van de Dag"(Hero of the Day):



    (10 doodt)
    is incorrect

    There are a few ways to say this right
    Correct would be:
    (10 gedood) = 10 killed
    (10 doden) = 10 deaths
    (10 dood) = 10 dead
    or even (but awkward!) Playername (doodt 10)

    There are much more, but i will only post them when i made proper screenshots

    Hope it's of use to Playa

    On page 33 of the book, there are 2 scorpions. One called 'schwaduwschorpioen'. That should be 'schaduwschorpioen' without the 'w' after the h.

      That should help them a lot this is something that Playa needs to work on first then tweaking arena so soon after doing so we should have a thread like this for each language on this forum. This way they have what each what is needed to fix grammar errors and I for one say screenshots with the bad grammar circled and corrections is the right way to go u did right with this one
      have fun, fight hard, die honorably

        | Well thanks
        -- But may i suggest that you use something like what i did with your quote, snipping out my quoted long text and screenshot, for the sake of readability of this thread

        Let's try and keep these threads as clean as possible by sticking to just reporting issues

        For other languages, yes to keep things clean and organized anybody can follow this example and start this thread for their server language(s)

        I will also remove above screenshot and replace it with a better cropped version, because this one was kind of big
