We're happy to announce that after months in the making, we have provided translations for Median XL. Though this is still a Work-in-Progress project by the community, we have determined that the following languages below are ready for release.
There may still be bugs or grammatical issues present in these translations, so for this reason this announcement will act as a Bugs/Feedback thread for translations as well.
These translations are maintained by members of the community voluntarily, so these translations may not be completely up to date upon the next patch and mistakes will be expected.
To become a translator (though we are currently not in need of any translators for the currently maintained languages), see Requirements for becoming a translator for more.
Do not post bugs and feedback that are unrelated to translations, post them in this thread instead: http://forum.median-xl.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=23335
Languages updated to 1.8:
Russian translated by Anhe1 and Kambala - Download
Chinese translated by CaiMiao - Download , Alternative Download (Simp only) (Both Simplified and Traditional Chinese)
Spanish translated by Seekers, XanderTheOne, Jforte, Ignacius and Diaco - Download
LANGUAGES NOT UP TO DATE:
French translated by Wasp and Rumblealex - Download , Feedback
Polish translated by MY4SG4, Nasghar and Hubix - Download
Italian translated by Loki86 (testing phase) - Download
Languages under this won't be revived unless there is a community effort in place which updates it to the current patch, similar to what happened with the Polish translation (which the effort was done using a public GitHub repository).
German translated by Gavin_K88, Madtrick, Medifrag, Femigaming and Fbkkrieger
Installation is relatively simple, download your preferred language, put the file (an MPQ, do not open this MPQ) within the Diablo 2 folder where Sigma is installed, and then go to the Launcher Settings and set your preferred Game Language. These are text only translations.
Thanks to CallMeCrazySam for a installation video for translations: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpiKk4xhsfs
Special thanks to:
Wasp for initiating translations as a community project.
Whist for helping code the game to allow better support for translations.
Kambala for his Qtbleditor tool.
CaiMiao for additional tools.
Athudes for providing assistance on the Russian translation
Some parts of the languages (like base items, unique names, rifts, dungeons, etc...) have not been translated to allow for searching in the Docs and minimal issues in D2Stats.
Any non-translation related Bugs and Feedback please report in the Bugs and Feedback thread for the current season or use our GitHub Issue Tracker
