Boundless Translation Excel parser


#1

This parser is a one-button solution to convert any Boundless translation to Excel file.
The main purpose is to provide an user friendly and very flexible environnement for translators.

Requirement:
Microsoft Excel 2013 or later.

Setup (do it again if you shut down your computer):

  • Open “Boundless Excel Parser.xlsm” to run the macro. Be sure to allow macro!
  • Don’t do anything yet, save and overwrite this file over the “Boundless Excel Parser.xlsx”. Accept the warning message about scripts.
  • You can now edit the data and use buttons. When you are done, save the document as macro embeded again.

options:

  • Use the “Update original” button to reload any new version of “english.json”
  • Use the “Update translation” button to reload the “translation.json”

Saving in Json (experimental: Im still looking for full integrated solution):

  • copy column A and C, put them next to each other in a new document.
  • copy both columns at the same time and paste them on this page: Mr. Data Converter
  • choose “Json Dictionary” as conversion method. Your translation is now boundless compatible.

Working with future updates of Boundless: quick fix
Some lines in the “english.json” have been altered and must be fixed manualy each time Boundless got a new release. It’s still pretty simple: search and replace 3 series of arrays with [ ]. They must be encoded in strings like this ‘[ ]’

Mr Data converter is not 100% accurate. Be ready to fix some conversions errors (use “translation.json” and “english.json” to compare different version)


Will the game be translated?
