So is "Tête d'oeuf" a literal French translation of "Egg man" as in calling somebody "an egg man" or something like that?

How did ... who said ... what ?!

WHY WAS I NOT INFORMED OF THIS ?!!

Where does this come from ?! This can't be ... the Archie Sonic Comic will FINALLY be adapted in French ?

Oh and just to say , the translation is really good compared to what you can usually find ... I just compared the scans to the original american copy , pretty good translation .
And Eggman is still called Eggman , even in the HORRIBLE french version of Sonic Generations , but it's more common to call him Robotnik ... guess it was because of the TV shows at the time ...

Please tell me that this is not a one time thing !

" Tete d'oeuf " is viewed more as a " moquery " rather than an actual insult . Hurts the feelings though ! And it means your head is round like an egg ... " egg head " :)

No, tête d'oeuf is just a common insult that means "egg head". "Egg man" would translate as "homme oeuf"

So I wonder how Antoine is going to be treated in this edition. The joke of Antoine is he's a really bad French sterotype. Maybe not as much anymore, but in Genesis he was like he was in SatAM, back to his roots.

I would not be surprised at all if in the French translation Antoine was made into a really bad British stereotype. ;)

This is news to me - cool news, mind you. Kinda surreal to see my dialogue translated, especially since I don't speak a lick of French.

I wonder if Lea speaks french fluently. If so, she could probably tell you exactly how accurate the translation is to your original script.

Sacre bleu! This is great :D It feels weird that Snively doesn't say his name in introducing himself , This is a rough translation but I thinks he says : "Partially.. I am not but a humble server in this grand project".

I don't know if I would say "fluent," but going off of memory the dialogue does seem to be pretty much identical to the original. Kinda nifty.

This is pretty cool! I bet that there's a zone that's pretty much like the zone we read about, only all the characters speak French and have French accents. I'm sure Antoine's going to fit in well with that zone as well. :wink:

Also, I wonder if there are other language translations like Japanese, Spanish and others of the comic?

You mean you think it's like Antoine voices over all the characters (except for himself I think) in this version of the Genesis Saga?
