Dzonny:
We answered to all received mails, no matter of our decision about it.

You have an answer now, sorry for the delay.

Illori, actually take a look at that page again :P (just updated, been a bit busy)

I've sent an email.

I am wondering, however, how many people outside the translator team are actually interested in obtaining a "Pirate Speak" language to put on their forum for Talk Like a Pirate Day, September 19th?  I am currently working on this, and hope to be finished with it within the next couple of weeks.  Even after translating phrases, I'm having to do tweaking to make sure everything is good for everywhere that string is used, and I'm being careful to make it as authentic as possible.  The automatic translators online are horrific, and just don't seem to do it proper justice.  I'm writing my own translation program, that will be designed to read in an SMF language file, and output a new language file with the proper translation.  It will make sure it doesn't start translating until after the assignment operator on a line ("="), and will also ignore HTML keywords within HTML tags, and will ignore URL addresses so that links are not broken.  This will make it possible to translate language files that come with mods that I haven't installed, so that people who write mods can make a pirate language easily available for their mod.

Shambles:
Isn't that Pirate Day Talk thing just for.. like.. 12 year olds?

Arantor:
I don't believe anyone is interested in making 'official not-real language' packs available through the site, as there was at least one other language pack that was developed through that sort of method but not allowed on the main languages page.


@Shambles: BELAY THAT, MAN! TALKIN' LIKE A PIRATE BE FER ALL AGES, EVERY MAN JACK O' US.
