Dict.cc thinks it's correct... and I assume that DC has heard it somewhere in that meaning and won't just have invented it.

Ok. Also, there was something else, but I forgot. I think it had to do with "at fire" instead of "at a fire".

This will likely be the first of many from me.

"Plums" is spelled incorrectly (the item).
When your bow net breaks and you salvage the materials, the red text is not properly translated.
On the third island in the Adventure the word for "Crystals" is not properly translated.

I know there are plenty more, so I'll keep my eyes peeled and go back through some of the earlier areas to see what I can find.

Figured while I was at it I might as well take a look at some of the things in my inventory. Unless stated otherwise, these are strictly suggestions designed to read better.

* Slime description: "Sticky and disgusting!"
* Scythe description: "Though designed as a harvesting tool, the scythe can be a powerful weapon as well."
* Feather description: "A bird's feather."
* Torch description: "Besides providing illumination, you can attack with a torch to light other things on fire."
* Flint description: "Striking flint stones together provides the sparks needed to start a fire."
* Butterfly description: "Strong little guys, aren't they?"
* Leaf description: "A beautiful leaf. The moisture can be squeezed from these with a rock."
* The word "lumbering" is most commonly associated with the "slow and laborious" adjective. "Logging" would be a better alternative (I should know - I live in a "logging town" that existed mainly to feed the timber industry. It is actually referred to as a "logging town" by many locals).

Just out of curiosity, are these kind of suggestions appreciated? If not, I'll stick to hunting for typo's.

there is no doubt your suggestions are appreciated, but it can take some time, until changes are made, because DC is just absolving his mandatory military service and has very little free time.

I'm actually just going through the INF files and reworking the text myself. I'm also keeping the descriptions narrative instead of 3rd person as I originally wrote them. Additionally, some extra humor is being added here and there. When I'm finished I'll zip the files and put them on Savefile or simply make them available for download from my HTTP file server.

Seems easier this way, and when the developer gets some time he can go through them himself and see what he likes and does not like.

- In the first island of Adventure, the text that appears shortly when you capture the parrot is still in German.
- In the third island, the text about the number of crystals acquired.
- In the third island, the title of the diary entry once you got all 10 crystals.

Nitpicks here but "Here is not enough room" sounds a little odd. "There is not enough room here" sounds better.

And one of the descriptions for the buildings is off... I don't remember but it wasn't translated. (I'll find out on Friday since I can't now)

The map on the first island- the writing near the X is in German.

I noticed one. When a fishing net breaks down, there appears a text "Die ist kaputt!", which is obviously german. I don't know what would be the best translation for that, but I'd guess "It broke down!".

Yes, it means "that's broken".

Found another one. When you catch a parrot for the pirate, it says "Ich hab hin" or something like that. Possibly "I catched it", "I caught it" or "I got it". Don't know german that well

Again one found. Don't remember if it was mentioned by someone else before but here it is:

When you find a crystal on the 3rd island, it says it in german, "1 von 10 Kristallen gesammelt", "2 von 10 Kristallen gesammelt" and so on.

Translation might be "1 of 10 crystals found"

The map that the native gives you when on the 4th(?) island has the texts in German.

some of the stuff in the options menu are bad written, others still in German... when it asks to restart stranded 2 it actually asks you to restarten.
In the editor the help on script making is in german, is it going to be translated? (the form to the script you are writing that shows on lower part of the screen)

Thank you all for your help! I just changed most stuff mentioned here. I'm looking forward to upload a new version of Stranded II within the first two weeks of 2008.
