Author Topic: Translation doesn't fetch "rounds left" in general  (Read 3169 times)

Hi folks,

I am just trying to translate most parts of the game into German, and there are yet some unsolved things on my mind:

1) you can only translate buffs messages like "Pony Attack (%s rounds left)" but not the "(%s rounds left)" in general as it is in the pageparts with a $n variable. I figured out that the translator uses here only the entire sentence with the $n substituted by its value. Especially when it comes to the marriage module, I am not willing to translate every players partner. Is there any way to make it better without changing the pageparts.php?

2) I've encountered a interesting thing within the translator. it displayed me a sentence involving a phrase like "`%Violet" with an additional % inside, getting me "`%%Violet" somehow. I already inserted my translation for the original sentence, but only the latter worked properly (does anybody know why this extra character appeared?)

Thanks for any comments!

For the second part:

The sprintf-function of PHP uses "%" to recognize patterns which should be replaced by other variables.

So, if you want to really return a "%" character with this function you need to double it.

It's like wanting to give out a backslash with the echo-function:

echo "c:\\windows\\system\\
will look like:
