Actual size cataclysm today in master-cataclysm-dda:
Sentences is 55569
A lot of content, the main problem is there are a lot of repetition and for translators (like me) or new languages is a nightmare.
I am readapting all sentences in my native language Spanish and for that i have to read all sentences and compare words etc. I found that in the past repetition was common but lately in new sentences i found that this pattern is repeated and i assume is because there is not a clear explanation how to use sentences inside sentences. I only going to comment third cases but there are a lot.
First one, from (from 2015 to 2648) repetitions of rings necklaces cufflinks tiaras, with almost same description. With variables you only have to add diamond, gold in a variables and clean all that.
Second one, is from basecamps, you need to build … from (metal scraps, wood, etc)
Third one, is from today, the sentences
a voice saying
a confidence voice saying
a gentle voice saying
There are a lot of repetition.
We are wasting memory, space, time and reducing our base of contributors over all translators, that burns because nobody wants to translate 3 hours of rings or necklaces that are the same but change a material. Besides a little change in that sentences multiply for X times because you need to repeated X times.
Note: i have more than 1000 hours as translator in this project and i will need one more year to read and adapt the sentences if necessary, but translating and checking the same sentences with little variation delay me a lot. Please use variables DRY.
Thank you to all for your contributions to make this game fun and great.
