Anyone knows how/whether RtCW was distributed or spread otherwise in the oriental (chenese/japanese/etc) and arabic language zones? Have you ever known for instance a chinese clan or server? Or seen a 100% arabic or cyrillic RtCW site with more info than just an offer to buy the game?

Just wondered.. Smile tia

I knew 4 vietnamese players also iranians, russians, serbians and many bulgarians but in the past, when RTCW was widely played, now not really.

The original CD comes with so many languages, almost all languages. But anybody who knows some reasonable English will choose it during installation, most probably.

Even the very few remaining Iranians, Serbians, and Polish players use English. Some Germans still use the German interface.

Sure Pink, but I also know many russians read english as good as I read russian.. But I also can imagine for instance quite some ppl from the east won't have had english education enough to understand websites (about superb games that still live after 10 years)..
About the RtCW interface I know that spanish and polish were also hot picks in the past, and even voice packs and such. And informational websites in english can easily be translated to 'more or less' understandable text for these people.

But ever tried to translate longer texts to chinese, japanese or arabic language and asked someone what you really wrote afterwards? I mean for me it's just hoping I'm not offending anyone with something like this..
عودة إلى قلعة ولفينشتاين



Edit: And besides language barriers, also political filtering and local selling/distribution points can have isolated whole countries 100's times as big as mine Embarassed which maybe also has to do with the fact that in 2001 many people did not even own a pc or internet. (Yeah I had this dream again about dragging whole continents to RtCW.. Maybe has to do with my holiday to Africa soo and my fantasy to drop 100 cdroms with the game between the Malinke and Susu people. Including mapdownloader.. Smile )
(Hahah I won't.. But did think about it. Hey we need to do sómething aight!?)

It is too difficult to translate from/into certain languages, especially if they are rich with synonyms, eponyms and such etymological stuff. Take for example the 3 Arabic words in your post, Whatever....Wolfenstein is written in a way that mimics hybrid pronunciation of the word according to German/English salad.....but if you take the American way of pronouncing it, you'll get a totally different Arabic script.....so, many words can be written as anything and all that anything is correct, but translators can't cope with these languages.

Wolfenstein can be pronounced as VolfenShtayn, Wolfensteayn....each is written differently...

If not going English, we'll need a UN translator Smile

@ Fredw, Polish is one of the genuine installation language....Dupolina (from Gdansk) uses it.

option 1: go to Dupolina's GT profile and watch the language. Polish. It is there on his game interface and the few screenies he has posted.

Option 2: email Dupolina and ask him...or Inflameous or maximus or...they all are Polish friends....you must know them, or heard of their nicks at least ...First 2 nicks are admins of the Polish clan aka [EQ]

Option 3: try a fake install of the original CD, and at the "language" options, you'll see Polish. Siema, mate Very Happy

@Ali: hahaha..possible...I only know one word, thought .....lol Very Happy

Yes you are promoting veggies Very Happy

lol, no, the game is not all about headshots, jumping, tweaks and such stuff, but people get to know each other a bit, and they exchange some stuff Cool

Sometimes players become real friends...bah...you know that ..

Maybe he translated it himself? It's not difficult. And the language options on the CD apply only to the installer i think.
