Description

1) Create a new game in French using Abdel pregen
2) Talk to the tutor at 1380.440

Observed

The tutor says "placeholder". The only options for text are "placeholder"

Expected

Text from the tutors should not have "Placeholder" written instead of dialog. If no translation is available they should use the English strings.

Notes

Internal report #22183.

While speaking to pnj, leaving dialog for some party members, one entry with familiar, and looking at some descriptions too I think, some or all are replaced with "placeholder".
As example with all monks tutors in candlekeep at the beginning of the game.
I'm on steam french version of the game, with no mod installed, either with dragonspear and without it before I bought it yesterday.
Didn't happened a few months ago when I last played. Only since one of the last updates.
Is that just some non already translated content ?

While speaking to pnj, leaving dialog for some party members, one entry with familiar, and looking at some descriptions too I think, some or all are replaced with "placeholder".

As example, it happens with all monks tutors in candlekeep at the beginning of the game. Not the most annoying, except for those addicted to achievements since it looks like there is one about this tutorial part. But I fear the fact some more crucial dialogs will suffer from this bug too ... So I won't progress nor even play a little for the moment because of that.

I joined a screen.
Last "placeholder" entry leave the ahem ... the "dialog".

If just a lack in translation, and since the game version is released in other zones than english speaking ones, I'd prefer to have an english text instead of that "thing", even if I could not understand what I would read without a dictionary.

Please understand.
Regards.

Yep. It's well understood by the french community, or others non english speaking localisations if same for them, we are not idiots. But what I'm saying is it's common sense that instead of releasing a NON COMPLETE game, so not entirely playable, they should have either released it later in theses language zones, or better solution : keeping the english dialogs mixed within the non english versions.

French translation is a problem from the start. At least, a game must be playable entirely if released.

For french, there's now solutions from players (merging with english dialogs), but should not have been anything to do.

Hi Anders Svensson. To be exact it's not only tutors. But I know there are more complete subjects now, at least on the forums.

#6 Updated by Anders Svensson over 3 years ago

I mentioned the familiars as well in the internal ticket. I agree that it should be fixed for all placeholder strings.

#7 Updated by Es Deve over 3 years ago

Ok. Thanks.

I'm currently playing with the non official patch which has been made for this dialog problem (+ another one merging SoD with original game since the game was offered to me on steam and no mod works if not doing that, game files organization seams different than with DRM free version).

So I can't report more about other "errors", but I understood from other players that there are others lacks, like in some descriptions and banters between NPC. Well I imagine I will read them into english if the unofficial patch creators found them all.

Regards for the work and transmission.
