Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Update: Translation added for Portuguese. - Sept 18, '11
Translations are now available for the following languages: English, Brazillian Portuguese, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish. If you are concerned about the file size, you can open the new file in SimPE and delete all the languages you do not need, commit and save.


This is another one of those things that I'm surprised no one has done yet. I'm always finding myself going back to the memories panel and counting the promotions to figure out how far I am from the top. That doesn't work when my sims get jobs from the computer based on their skills instead of at entry level. With this little mod you can quickly see what level your sim is at. In addition the number shows up when you are job searching.



The abbreviation 'Lvl' for level and the level number have been added to all the maxis jobs from Basegame, Uni, Pets, Seasons, and Freetime. If you don't happen to have some of those EPs it won't harm your game. If you don't play the game in English, this mod will (currently) change all your job titles and descriptions to English. I'll do languages as requested, just let me know which language you need and the proper word for 'Level'.



Enjoy!

So I've got requests for Dutch (lvl), Swedish and Norwegian (nivå), and Russian (yp). I'd also like to do French, German, and Spanish. Can anyone help me with those words? (Fluent speakers only please; I can google translate just as well as anyone, but I want the appropriate word though) If anyone else wants their language, please pipe up now. I'd love to do your language but I really only want to do one update on this.

Oh, this is so awesome. Since I only allow a certain number of people into certain career levels, I made a huge-ass list of them to reference so that I know when to stop allowing Sims to skill and make friends. Now I can chuck that list. One less text file cluttering up my hard drive!

I'm Spanish and it would be great to have it translated. The word is "nivel" and the abbreviation "nvl".
Thank you for your work!!

I wouldn't mind the swedish one, as i play in swedish. Otherwise i would test this, just don't want my careers all of a sudden after many years of playing in english.

Really nice, but I'd like to get them in Brazilian Portuguese.
The word for "level" here is "nível", abbreviated as "nvl". But usually, in games, we just tend to use "LVL", since we "borrow" a lot of words from English =3.

I play polish version and I know many polish people are here, so it may be useful. It is quite popular to call "level" as "level" in polish like in english, and the short form is just "lvl".

I always used to check the "Careers..." menu on TwoJeffs' SimBlender to find out at which job level my sims were. But this should make everything a lot easier for sure!

Thanks, Phaenoh!

For French the word for level is "niveau". There are no real abreviation really, but I suppose if you want to use a three-letter one , you could use "nvu". "nv" could be good too.

It's easy enough, but its busy work. On top of that there are 20 different languages I could translate it into, making that 15,000 edits. That's why I'm waiting to hear which languages would actually be used, if I have people wanting their language I'm happy to oblige, but how many MTS users use Traditional Chinese or Hindi?


I have already made quite some careers and I know a bit about how to translate them. When I want a translation, I just need to import the languagefile (notepad .txt) and it's done.
Do you need to translate the descriptions too? Otherwise you can tell me how to translate it in SimPE (I mean do I have to change it in this downloadmod or do I have to do it otherwise) and maybe I can help you with it. I can find the translationword of Level by translations.google. I don't mind doing that work.

Does this also work for custom careers?

Thank you for your offer! I don't need to translate the entire career, just adding the word Level and a number to the end of the description. Also, I'm a little wary of using google translate on single words, its entirely possible to get them out of context, for instance, Level can mean a rank but it can also mean to flatten. I'd be willing to bet those are different words in different languages and I need to make sure to use the right one. That's why I'm relying on real people who actually know their language well.

If you are willing to help with some of the typing I'd gladly take you up on that; its busy work and I've gotten swamped with other real life things right now so I just don't have the time to get this done. I can send you the master file to work from and explain it to you all in a PM if you are willing.

In Danish it's just 'level' or 'niveau' - We also borrow a lot from other languages ;D

Edit: It was already said

Could you make a Dutch version?
The Dutch word for level is actually "level", so :')
The same in abbreviation as the english one.

I strongly advise "Niv.", Nv is less frequent on other hand.
"Nvu" looks utterly weird... I've never read such spelling.

Don't forget the order of the word too :

For example, 10 Niv. would be wrong. Niv. 10 is correct.

Niv. 1

Niv. 2

Niv. 3

...and so on

I could also make the whole work for German translation if I knew what files I have to edit...

So send me a PM if you like...

I would gladly download this in danish. It would still just be "lvl whatever-number", but even though I prefer english in most cases, it's just to uhm... "unorganized", if the job openings are in english when the rest is danish. (I'm such a perfectionist).

I'll keep this page in my favorites, thank you ^_^

I currently did the German and Polish version. I'm still working on the Danish one, but I hope to finish it this weekend. I hope you can update this mod already for those languages that are finished when I sent you the file.
