GDevelop is an open source software for developing HTML5 and native games without any serious knowledge in programming. Developing a game is as simple as setting up an event; gather your resources and start exploring. There are lot of tutorials available on the Wiki for a beginner to get started, and you can also find the documentation there also.
You can choose to create platformers, puzzles, shoot 'em up, strategy, 8-bit games and even publish your games to the web, iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, Linux and even Facebook Messenger.
This is my sixth translation report on the GDevelop project. Check out the previous reports: first, second, third, fourth, fifth. Working on this project is really helpful to me, as there are lots of things to learn, which wouldn't have been possible without this kind of opportunity. With the basic understanding of how to create scenes, events, animations and the likes using GDevelop, it would be less difficult to make use of other basic or advanced game engines though some might require additional programming or graphic skills.
This translation session poses lesser difficulty as there is already familiarity with some terms used in the project.
Some strings to take note of are:
'Path'; due to the different contexts in which this word was used in the project, i proposed different translations for each scenario. These are
- Path (variable), in computing, a way to specify a list of directories containing executable programs. In this case, the word is being translated as 'Atọ́nà'.
- Physical paths such as a footwalk, trail, sidewalk et.c. In this case, the word 'path' is translated as 'Ipa ọ̀nà'.
The words 'variable' and 'element' were quite left untranslated.
The project's translatable texts are a total of 25312 words and in this session I was able to translate 1407 words making an overall translated 8379 words (33% of the total). The project should be completed in 20 sessions approximately (~14 left).
