General Guidelines

I think it would be a lot easier for the translators, if there was clear rules what to do when translating the names of the objects and quotations. For example, some of the Russian pages have the quotes in the Russian language and some are left in English (eg. here in English and here in Russian). It's easy to get the translations of the quotes from the gamefiles but since I don't know what to do with the quotes... And there is a problem with some of the names of the objects. Portal 1 does not have any translations since there are no subtitle options. I'm struggling to find out the correct way of translating the Weighted Storage Cube, since it is not mentioned in Portal 2 by it's full name (not to mention the High Energy Pellet, ASHPD etc...). And if we manage to get the translation, do we leave the English name inside brackets or something? Wormhole 14:42, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
