  • RomGuyony mentioned in the summer about having an information box with translations, for cars and series in RR3. Similar to the one used here:

    The question is:

    1. Is there interest in other languages on the English RR3.Wiki?
    2. Is there interesting in creating or expanding other language wiki?
    3. If there is interest, who is willing to add the foreign language translations?
    4. Who will confirm they are right?

    History

    Kuzz tried to promote other language Wikia here: Thread:17151 - Foreign language RR3 Wiki's!

    Officially Supported Languages

    According to the iTunes release notes, Real Racing 3 is available in the following languages:

    1. English
    2. Dutch
    3. French
    4. German
    5. Italian
    6. Japanese
    7. Korean
    8. Portuguese
    9. Russian
    10. Simplified Chinese
    11. Spanish
    12. Traditional Chinese

    Possible Methods

    1.InterWiki Links

    As Kuzz had already tried to create links to Foreign language RR3 Wiki's, this has been taken a step further, if the same page exists on the other language wiki, a link can be placed on our wiki, which will display the Language the page is available in, for example at the bottom of on the NISSAN SILVIA (S15) page, there are links in French, German and Russian, to the equivalent pages on that languages' wiki.

    Languages

    This method would be easy for our wiki, it would be a link to the other language wiki, in source mode it would look like this [[fr:Nissan Silvia (S15)]]. That is providing the equivalent pages existed; most of the other languages are incomplete. A team of contributors would need to copy the English page and translate it on the other wiki, as Kuzz mentioned, this is considerable work.


    2.Language Table

    Alternatively a table, similar to the one below could be created on the 167 car article pages, 118 Series and 8 special events, in career.

    See an example on how this could be displayed on the NISSAN SILVIA (S15) page here: NISSAN SILVIA (S15)#In other Languages

    Language Title Meaning
    English NISSAN SILVIA (S15)
    Flag Germany German Nissan Silvia (S15) Same as English name
    Flag Russia Russian Nissan Silvia (S15) Same as English name
    Flag France French Nissan Silvia (S15) Same as English name
    Flag South Korea South Korean 닛산 실비아 (S15) Google translation of English name
    (Page does not exist)
    1. Adding the empty tables would need some work, but could be done.
    2. The tables would then need some commitment from contributors, to translate the car names or series names into their languages.
    3. The translation would then need to be linked to other language Wikia, if the page existed.
    4. The translations would need to be confirmed.

    Some example are:

    • "Speed Barons" is "Les Maîtres de la Vitesse" in French
    • "Shelby '67 Cobra GT500" in Spanish, is "Shelby Cobra GT500 del 67"

    Polls

    To gauge interest and commitment please fill in the following poll:

    1. Wikia in other languages

    Is there an interest in other language wikia (e.g. fr.realracing3.wikia)?
     
    75
     
    91
     

    The poll was created at 16:17 on December 10, 2016, and so far 166 people voted.

    2. Table with languages translation

    Is there an interest in a Language Table on this English wikia?
     
    60
     
    70
     

    The poll was created at 14:22 on December 7, 2016, and so far 130 people voted.

    3. Translation to languages

    If there is interested in a different languages, which languages would you be willing to translate (if more than one, vote for the primary language you could translate to)?
     
    16
     
    12
     
    14
     
    21

    1
     
    7
     
    47
     
    3
     
    21
     

    The poll was created at 16:33 on December 10, 2016, and so far 166 people voted.

    Based on the answers to the above polls, the options will be considered for the future. Feel free to leave any comments below.

    • Like any new website, we need to draw attention to this page, promote it somehow in order to generate traffic and interest. Like many pages on the wiki, even the built-in search engine doesn't find these articles.

    • I wonder if I should restrict myself from taking the poll as I speak only English. Are the "No" answers intended for other than English speakers?

      I agree, I've added two texts with links from the home page, highlighted the thread, and added information in the community page. Traffic is normally high on the home page, especially when thee is a new release.

      @Racer KCain10r
      Yes, if you feel this Wikia doesn't need a translation table, then you are welcome to vote No, in poll 1. The other two polls are intended for ppl who vote yes.

    • I don't feel the need for a different language, but I am willing to help with the translation to Dutch if needed

    • I think we better focus on maintaining a good wiki site in English. It is already difficult to follow and memorize the topics of all threads. I don't feel the need for a French wiki. I was even not aware of the existence of that French Wiki. I had a quick look to it. Obviously some people are adding info from time to time, but it is far from being fully updated and very few traffic.

      So I confirm that would be better to stick to English language, as long as all are indulgent with the non native speaker like me.

    • There's no need that all pages and information be available in all languages, just those where the translation is not direct, in example, events where the translated crew speak create dificulties.

      The proposal is either a simple table with translations of the car or series name, or a different language Wikia, a hybrid of partial translations of text, like crew quotes, isn't being considered. Some example are:

      • "Speed Barons" is "Les Maîtres de la Vitesse" in French
      • "Shelby '67 Cobra GT500" in Spanish, is "Shelby Cobra GT500 del 67"

    • I think that no car has its name changed in portuguese. Some of the Series were translated, as "Endurance Kings" and "Endurance Champions" that became "Reis da Resistência" e "Campeões da Resistência". But most of these cases are direct translations.

      [By the way, one thing always took my attention is that the portuguese translation of the game is uncommonly cood. Even some hard-to-know rules were  respected. One could say that EA/FM speaks portuguese better than the average brasilian player. :D ]

    • I think that there certainly is an interrest for a Dutch site, I am in a Facebook-group with a lot of Dutch people who play RR3. For me, I'd love to do the translation.

      I think so too.

      German is my mother tongue, but in an english speaking world, nearly everybody can use the english wiki. Translating this wiki is just a huge amount of work. Maybe 5% of the Players speak German, 5% Russian and so on, but I think 90+% can work with this wiki.

      For example wikipedia: there is an english and a german one, but the english one is much bigger. In our case, the english wiki will grow, and when the time limited events are over, somebody has time to translate it? That makes no sense for me.

    • I haven't seen this page yet, so good idea or not, not enough volunteers or too much work for a real interest ...
