I won’t take it the wrong way, but I don’t think you actually understood what I was saying. Also, your question about spellcheckers shows that obviously you have never sat down and translated any serious amount of text with a deadline. Yes, I had spellcheckers, but they are just programs and they are not 100% mistake-free.
What I was saying with “typos will happen a lot” is that when you translate the text the first time, there is no way you will make it perfect and without typos. If someone says to you they can do it, they’re lying. You will read material several times and you will still miss things, especially when you have a close deadline. That is why I said that translators also need to have proofreaders. They will check the translation and spot the typos or grammar mistakes. Obviously, the developers of this game decided that they are not going to pay additional people to make sure the translation is adequate. I don’t understand that kind of thinking but it is what it is.
As for your not spotting typos, that is because when translations are done by a company, translators translate text, check it to the best of their ability and then send it to proofreader who will check it again. Usually, the proofreader is fellow translator who works on the same or similar translations. When I was translating The Walking Dead, my translations were proofread by other translators from the same pool, so they knew exactly how stuff should be translated. That gives you consistency.
After proofreader makes corrections, file is sent back to the translator who then decides if he will accept corrections or not. Sometimes, translation goes to second proofreader who then checks both translator and first proofreader. Then the file is sent to the subtitling department where I suspect subtitles are checked the last time before creating the finished subtitle file that goes to video. There are 3-4 checking steps (and yes, spell checkers are involved too) to make sure there are no typos. When you go with just one translator and then release the translation into the game immediately, of course there will be mistakes, and not small ones either.
@Kafka okay here’s my last attempt to change these two cards in German, though the translation error lasts since years:
Gaard’s Avatar says (English): Burn Undead and silence Daemons
In German it is just the other way around, which is wrong! It says: Silence Undead and burn Daemons
Queen Aurora says (English): Give all other allies barrier and life
In German it says (which is wrong!): Give all allies barrier and life
I can see now why you would be upset about this. It’s not just a typo or poor grammar, this is blatant mistranslation which affects your gameplay. If devs don’t think THIS is a big deal, then I don’t expect anything to be solved.
