As ya'll know, the is the biggest URU-related project to which I still devote time on a regular basis. And, I'm happy to see that it's still active and translations are still being performed.

German and French are basically complete - they just need to be approved. And, how does that happen? By German and French speaking explorers like yourselves! And, how do you find things that need approval? EASY! Go into the project and at the top of every page you'll see something like "Items to Vote on: 316 Find One" - just click "Find One" and it will (amazingly) find one for you. Of course, the number you see will be different. It will only show you things that YOU can vote on based on what language(s) you speak. As soon as the first language is done, I'll compile it into a localization pack for MO:UL and eventually URU:CC.

But, it's not all German and French. Italian, Spanish, Finnish, Hungarian and Dutch are all more than 50% complete. And, beyond that, Russian, Swedish, Romanian, Portuguese, Czech, Chinese, French Canadian and Klingon have all been started. Yes...I said Klingon. When I rolled the site out I expected to wait at least a year for a language to be completed. Yeah...it's that big of a project. But the progress ya'll have made so far is fantastic! So, keep up the good work!

Part of this announcement is just giving an update. Another part is letting ya'll know that there have been numerous bug fixes and improvements...most of which you won't see...some you will. Oh, and it's about twice as fast as it used to be.

And the other part is exciting. Despite the name, the ULP is branching out and including the first non-URU game: Riven. But why? Well, every translation we do will be made freely available to anyone. That especially includes Cyan. Perhaps Cyan will release iRiven in Finnish one day thanks to your work. We can dream. But if it happens, that's just something else for Cyan to sell. And, maybe if our little project helps them to make a little extra money, they'll be able to devote more time to URU. OK...so I'm sounding a little circle-of-life-ish here, but you get the point.

But, there's another benefit. Have you heard of the project?

So, as of today, the is now called:

Catchy, huh?

OHB, are you lacking in sleep or does somebody need to check your English usage? I've heard of things needing approval but never needing approved.

But this is all good to hear, especially the Riven part. Since Cyan doesn't have the rights to translated content this would be a lovely workaround.

Haven't had a chance to check up on SE lately but it's coming along quite nicely.

OHB, I'd like to request the addition of English (Canada).

Canadian English uses a combination of British English (colour, honour, etc.) and American English (maximize, realize, etc.). Neither British nor American options are wholly satisfactory.

Not a huge deal if you disagree, but I thought it'd be good to have the option.

i think the Canadians should read over the translations for British and American and combine and fix what they see fit.

Sure I'll add English - Canadian. Although if you're gonna work on it - help out with British English too :)
