Please help translate the UniLang website to many languages!

Postby proycon » 2008-11-21, 18:25

The old UniLang site was available in quite a lot of languages. The new site though has a lot of new pages with new text that requires translation. We intend to once again support a wide number of languages, but we need you to help us out here! So please go to the new Translation & Development Center and help translate the UniLang website to your language!

In addition to translating the website itself, you can also translate language resources such as phrasebooks, vocabulary lists, and stories. Everyone's welcome to do so!

If anybody is having problems with the Translation & Development Center, then you can report so in this thread. The system has been silently operational for over a month, so most bugs should have been eliminated already, but some small issues might pop up still.

In the time the system has been online, various people have already contributed, you can always see who updated what on the news page.

For those who are curious, here is a small screen-shot of the Translation & Development Center in action:

Thanks to all those who have contributed thus-far ! Several languages have considerably more translations now! German progressed a lot thanks to Kubi, Núria Harket did a lot of work on Spanish, ILuvEire and noradlf on Italian, and others contributed too!

But we're not there yet! We need more people and more languages still! Portuguese, Polish and Turkish are most notably lacking, considering the fact we have many members from those regions. Russian would also be a desirable language to have at this stage. But of course all languages are welcome! We for example already have a lot of translations in Catalan and Slovak!

If you have some free time, consider contributing to UniLang and making it available to a wider public by translating pages to your native language!

It would be really cool if someone could add to and/or fine tune the Swedish translations :). I'm native but not that native, and I'd like to view more of Unilang in Swedish.


(On a completely unrelated point, I just found an yhdys sana virhe in the phpBB translation in Finnish, and it's annoying me to death as I can't easily fix it, grr! :lol:)

I have added a few new strings to the "Home" set , because I am preprating a new and better front-page for UniLang. It would be great if these few strings could be translated to at-least the following languages as soon as possible:

- German [Front-Page done! thanks kubi!]
- Polish [Front-Page done! thanks Ilayde!]
- French [Front-Page done! thanks kilobug!]
- Spanish ]Front-Page done by me, but please check!]
- Italian
- Russian [Front-Page done! thanks voron!]
- Bulgarian [Front-Page done! thanks bibienne! ]

I prefer to wait to launch the new front page until at lease these are available. Go to the Translation & Development Center and help translate the website!. The set is called "Home" and can be found in "Website translations"

And preferably also to these, as these languages are very complete already thanks to some avid translator, but they don't have the new frontpage texts yet:
- Finnish [Front-Page done! thanks Varislintu!]
- Slovak
- Latvian [Front-Page done! thanks mak!]
- Esperanto [Front-Page done by me, please check]
- Catalan [Front-Page done! thanks Knag!]

Of course any other language is very welcome too!

I'd love it if you added the Salvadoran dialect (Español de El Salvador) to the list of variants in Spanish. I'm willing to make some recordings, but not until I can specify my babbling. :D

To my Brazilian ears the word "recursos" sounds strange. It means more "finantial resources" than "learning resources", I would like to change all ocurrences to "material".

I'm not sure if it will be well accepted by other Portuguese speakers here, what can I do?

I made a reasonable stab at the Welsh translation, I think. I probably need to proofread it again, but the basis is there.

Hi! I almost have translated the whole site's sections. Now I am facing a problem with capilizing some Section's names in Kazakh still left in small letters, like "шығу". There are also some things not translated into Kazakh, yet, like "Register" tab, etc. I would be very glad to render my assistance in translating entire components of Unilang into Kazakh. Some works have been allready done in Unilang Wiki. In perspective, I will maybe approach to create some resources here. Cheers!

Sorry guys. The Translation & Development Centre still has too many bugs to be easy to use. :?

It's really bothering my OCD side that half the site is left untranslated in Finnish. :l Country names, language names, all of these posting buttons like "quote", "list" etc. and then the front page with the names and descriptions of the different forums. If no one else has the intention to translate them I'd really like to so I don't go crazy. :)
