There is nothing in google. Either it is some "Akelei" or "Amarylis".
I only found some clue in an old botanic book which brought up the "Akelei".

Some description of the flower would help.
As far as I know, the name is just made up. So anything suitably German sounding for a flower name would work.

Hi Firefly.
I'd let the name unchanged here, because it is new.

But let us communicate in weblate or via Mail.

We should translate with 4 eyes, sometimes we translate but not commit, and other times we check translation of others and commit. (or make another proposal)

Like this we get the best quality at good speed - and it makes more fun together

I will start translating too, and maybe Mayweed also likes to help?

Hi, I helped to 100% translation for german today.
But we need some rules like what is gold in german: Goldmünzen or Goldstücke?

Hi romoel,
welcome to the forum, and thx for your surprise present!
I added you to the translator's group, a part of this forum where translators could discuss things without spoiling and in their own language.

But of course you could also post your questions here.
About the gold, I myself tend to use the word like it is in the rest of the game. But I think Goldstücke and Münzen is used both.
In that case you could choose what you like more. It might be also nice to have some variation.
Sometimes translators even decide to go over the whole game content and eliminate such differences. In such cases I prefer that translators discuss this with another one.
Over all the results are best when translators work 4 eyed. One suggests a translation and another accepts or suggests some change. And vice versa.

I have seen the user 'anonymous' in weblate who had translated much of the missing German content during last weeks. Was it you?

Thank you :-) I will read the forum because I like the game very much, but I need time because of job...

I'm not 'anonymous'. I was very suprised because he did a lot of translation work but only as suggestions. My main work was to accept his suggestions.
