Russian translation of sounds spoken in KTuberling

completed by: Pavel Shashkin

mentors: Alexander Potashev

KTuberling is a picture game for children for KDE. Russian localization (translation of the GUI) of KTuberling is complete. But there and also translatable voice messages: when you select something from the toolbox, the application pronounces the name of the selected thing. Those voice messages are not translated into Russian.


Your task is to translate the words spoken in the messages into Russian and record the sounds. You need a microphone and a nice voice. Please, let the Russian KDE team check the translations of words before you start recording to avoid double-work. You can find the reference English sounds here. This little HOWTO explains how to technically add a new translation of KTuberling sounds. As the results of this task you should provide the files CMakeLists.txt, ru.soundtheme and the .ogg files.
