Boardmaster manual.

Post by Braintrash »

Hell-o,

I need your help!

First, I just made a translation of the Boardmaster manual, thank to a fellow member, scopEDog, who kindly took picture of his original one.

You can find the 0.9 version (actually, the first version I made, but it's almost final, so...) here.

My request is that, since English is not my native tongue, I would be grateful if one or some UK native English speakers could proofread it and point any language inconstancy my limited English could have produced. After some proofreading, I would then produce the 1.0 version that would happily take home in the Wiki.

Second, since the previous owner of my Boardmaster changed all screws :palm: , I would also be quite grateful if someone can confirm me the model of the original screws, so that I can order some and fix that.

Third, not really asking for help on this one, but I will also release a French translation of the manual. If someone wants to translate it into another language, I will then happily integrate it into my master file and release it on the wiki. It is layered (one common layer and one layer per language added; I could even do a Japanese version :awe: ), so adding translation is easy for me.

Finally, sorry to all those who thought it is an official Sega product, since it isn't at all. :oops: They bought panels from Sega and mostly took standard parts, but they weren't affiliated at all with Sega.

Still, I love mine. :awe:

P.S. Why can't I connect to the wiki? :cry:

This translation is very good considering English is not your first language. The below are the things I would "fix" but there is nothing that doesn't make sense. Overall, very good job man!

Every page: I would remove the tab at the start of paragraphs. That is very old fashioned.

Page 1 - Volume adjustement - this should be "adjustment"

Page 2 - excepted old games - this should be "except"

Page 2 - desactivate - this should be "deactivate"

Page 5 - careful to not wrongly connect them - this would read better as "careful not to connect them incorrectly"

Page 5 - please refrain to touch it - this would read better as "please refrain from touching it"

Manual have been slighty updated.
If I get no more input today, I will make it 1.0 and send it to the wiki.

I updated the document, adding two lines that I previously forgot. :oops:

You can know find it's three editions here:
- Revolutionary Edition
- Royalist Edition
- More royalist than the Queen Edition

Document is now 1.0 although I would expect a 1.1 and a 1.2 version after some more proof reading. :awe:

Also : why can't I access the wiki? I feel like a STV person... :cry:

1.2 posted.
This should be final revision, unless someone send me an additional translation.
