Follow-up Comment #3, patch #3836 (project freeciv): Not being a native speaker makes you more qualified to identify potential confusions. While "...on a tile in the city" is gramatically correct, that it is potentially confusing significantly increases the chances that translations will be poor, which is undesireable. "...on a tile within city range" is very technical: works great for those who think about ruleset concepts, but I'm not sure it is very accessible to players who don't consider rulesets in such detail, moreso if they have played some of the civlike games where cities can attack units within some range (perhaps differing from working range or vision range) without a unit.
How about "...on a tile within the city radius"? I feel like it is important to link to the concept of tiles that can potentially be worked, but given that rulesets specify whether individual tiles can be worked with reqs, that may not be precisely correct (a ruleset author could not let mountains be worked by cities, but let bases on mountains allow certain things to happen). I'm not sure precisely which terms would be considered general, or which have sufficient other discussion in the help to be clear to the player. _______________________________________________________ Reply to this item at: <http://gna.org/patch/?3836> _______________________________________________ Message sent via/by Gna! http://gna.org/ _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivfirstname.lastname@example.org https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
