Hi, Dev-Team of Thrive!

My name is Simon Koller and I'd like to apply as a translator.
I'd like to help translating this games to German, which is my native tongue.
I can speak English fluently since I've been studying it (in school) for just over 11 years and I'm graduating HS this year in English in both text and speech.
Sadly I only have a very basic knowledge of HTML, PHP and C# so I won't be of any use when it comes to programming.
I hope you'll consider me as a possible translator.

Regards,
Simon "Simelineon" Koller

Hmm, well, we wouldn't really be able to make good use of translators until we code in proper internationalization support, and until we have a large amount of text that isn't likely to change all the time. The second constraint is likely to not change for a while yet -- that is, the game isn't mature enough for translation efforts to not be wasted. Maybe someone else might have some other idea on how we could use a translator, I dunno.

I know it's not much, but perhaps you could translate my tutorial video for 0.2.3 to German? I used Movie Maker (the pinnacle of technology for sure) to create it, and could send you the video. You could then translate the text. It may help get a German audience.

Honestly I wasn't expecting to be needed as a translator at this stage. My main goal was just to get a foot in for when the game is in a stage where a localisation is possible. When the time comes feel free to message me.

Sure thing! I'd be glad to help. Maybe you can send me the raw video file or the WMM project file so that I can use it to create a translated version.
