    Hello everyone, KeyboardGecko here. You may know me as the guy who translated Fallout of Nevada. No, the other guy. Yes, really.

    In the last year I had several people here showing interest in Olympus 2207 english translation. So, long story short - I'm doing it.

    To make things more interesting, I've set up a twitch account, where I'll be periodically streaming the translation process. Yes, it's gonna be boring as hell. And pretty stupid. But also, you'll see the job being done and maybe drop by to chat a little. Also, if it's fine with moderator team, I'm gonna use this topic for informational purposes.
    So good luck to me, I guess, yay.

    Onto the questions!
    Q: Why are you doing it?
    A: Personally I consider Olympus a pretty solid game, although I was never very amused by its dialogues (unlike the FNevada, for example). Still, I had a pretty gread time with it, as some of my friends. And almost 10 years have passed since its release, so it would be a shame to have it forgotten, considering amount of work put into it. And no one actually does it, unlike F:sonora, for example. So, why not?

    Q: What's the progress report by now?
    A: Maybe around 12%. I'll have something like a progress bar some time later, here or on twitch.

    Q: Nah, talkie-talkie project. It won't work out.
    A: We'll see.

    Q: What the hell is FNevada?
    A: FFFFFFffffff

    Unfortuneatly I'm temporarily out.. as far as it goes for any internet activity (translating Sonora included).. some strange twist of fate caused me to shit with blood, so I'm currently in the middle of the process of finding out WTF is going on with me.

    On a side note, here's the translation progress. Because it's all about metrics that matters!

    Thanks to everyone coming by on twitch, that's actually pretty funny)
    If someone has any suggestions, put them there.

    Got that)
    I'm doing streams at random, when I'm translating. Really helps to actually do something. I don't know why)
