Hi all,

This is an open call for volunteers to help translating my English subtitles on my upcoming SC Camera Controls Tutorial video into other languages. For those that don't know, YouTube allows you to enter subtitles/CC for a HUGE range of languages that help the content reach a much wider audience (other languages AND hearing impaired) while also improving the videos ranking in search results. I've already input my English subtitles manually (from my script) so the subtitles are accurate. And yes, YouTube will automatically translate existing subtitles into any language the viewer wants, but it uses Google Translate which struggles, especially on sentence fragments that are broken up to match the video timing. Ideally, I get a few languages manually and accurately translated from my English subtitles.

This new SC Camera Controls tutorial is replacing my very old video I created back in alpha 2.6 that people are still using to this day. I've even had CIG devs tell me it's how they learned the camera system. My HOPE is that CIG includes this on their WELCOME TO STAR CITIZEN page inside the video tutorials section.

So, here are the details:

I'm accepting ANY language anyone wants to accurately translate but I'm hoping for:
  • German
  • French (in progress by vahadar)
  • Spanish
  • Russian
I have:
  • Dutch
  • Slovenian
Aside from the subtitles, I'd also like accurate translations for the video TITLE and part of the DESCRIPTION. If that's all you care to do, I'll gratefully take it! If you help out in any way, I'll add your name to the list of translation help at the end of the video.

TITLE
Star Citizen Camera Controls Tutorial
DESCRIPTION
An in-depth guide to the Star Citizen in-game camera system or "Advanced Camera Controls". I go into great detail on all the camera options & controls including Depth of Field (DOF), Field of View (FOV), Offsets, Zoom, and Freelook while referencing real-world photography terms & techniques & pointing out restrictions & oddities along the way. This is meant to be a definitive guide on the entire camera system.

FAIR WARNING: the video is 30 minutes long so it's a lot of text. If you're interested in helping, download the attached "SC-3.9.1_Camera-Controls-Tutorial_captions_ENGLISH.srt" file... it's my English subtitles file that contains timestamps and text. It's a simple text file that can be opened by any text editor. But, some find it helpful to use a website like this:

https://www.syedgakbar.com/projects/dst

Drag and drop my SRT file onto the giant DROP FILE box:

then select the language you'll be translating to on the top left of the page:
1592964564442.png

and you'll get a line by line English/*** comparison complete with the timestamps. And you can edit each row individually.

And when you're down, click the SAVE AS button in the upper right part of the page to download the final SRT file:

This is a HUGE request and there are NO obligations

Thanks Lordgarrett99! The responses and help are definitely coming in!!

PM sent.

edit : 1/4 translated for french, will continue later this week and update post when done
THANK YOU SO MUCH @vahadar!! I appreciate the help.

ah wish ah could help

ah only speak 'Murican
Mayhaps maynard, we done need more than one 'murican language to choose from?

I'll see if I can get a Hungarian translation done. I'm terrible at my own language though lol, so I can't make any promises, but will gladly try!
If you're willing to try, I'm happy to include it. Thanks Lorddarthvik!

The video sounds awesome! I have been trying the camera controls using GameGlass, but still can't figure out how to get better shots. Let us know when it is all live. And good luck in the translations! :like: :o7:
Chip Hazzard: This version of the video has been about a year in the making. Partly because I get busy or distracted, and partly because CIG makes subtle changes to the camera system. GameGlass is great of getting the controls out of the confusing keybindings and right out in front of you... but it doesn't so much to teach you how to use the camera system. You're welcome to watch my old video from 2.6. It's mostly still relevant but some things have changed. The biggest is that shortly after I made that video, CIG dropped the "chase" camera from the system AND removed the "Director Mode" from the game and started called it "Advanced Camera Controls".

Yeah. Their timing on camera system changes have been unfortunately timed as far as my tutorials go. My new video is done... just waiting to finalize these multilingual subtitles now.
