Title: Language File Translations...
Post by: [Unknown] on July 31, 2003, 03:04:19 AM
We at the Simple Machines Team would like to be able to have as many translations available for SMF as possible.  If you have the skill of a foreign language, and believe you can help, please post below.

This includes wanting to create a new translation, correct an existing, or anything else related.

Some of the language files will contain comments.  It would be best if you left these untranslated.  They will also include this, on a line before a block of untranslated strings:
// Untranslated!

Please do not change the spacing of the language files, except removing the entire line one of the above untranslated warnings appear on.

Thanks,
-[Unknown]

Daniel D. volunteered already for german translations in this thread:

http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?threadid=42 (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?threadid=42)

Case further assistance is needed in german lng then I can help in around 2 weeks.

I'm ready to do the Norwegian translation right away, as soon as I get my YaBBSE1.5.4 converted to SMF1.0 Alpha.

You mean Urdu (which covers a wider spectrum)?

On that note, A.M.A (Arabme) did translate it to Arabic, so is that gonna happen again?

Post by: dennis on August 05, 2003, 03:19:49 AM
I wonder if the language file will be similar to the YaBBSE 1.5x?

I don't know if you guys want to include the asian language in early release or sometimes later.

I can help translate into Vietnamese, just give me a shout.

Post by: Skoen on August 05, 2003, 03:47:48 AM
As they said in the chat session there will be different .lng files for each section. The files will be separated with the _norsk.lng, _english.lng after the name of the section. Example: admin_english.lng, profile_norsk.lng.
Little more advanced, but easier to compress when we are supposed to publish our translations.
Title: Re:Language File Translations...
Post by: [Unknown] on August 05, 2003, 04:00:01 AM
Actually, it's more like index.spanish.php, Search.dutch.php, Admin/ManagePermissions.english.php...

The Dutch translation of 1.4.x/1.5.x was quite bad, hopefully you'll do a better job. :)

And I'm willing to review your translation, by the way.

SPAWN, ask David for access to the CVS... he may likely not give it to you. (and he won't give it to anyone else.... I'm almost sure :P.)

Since it is still Alpha, most of the language changes aren't done.  So if I send it now, you'll just have to retranslate some of it in a week or two.  So just hold on to your typing fingers and wait.

Also note that I will be bothering EVERYONE who has offered/offers help so.. don't offer what you won't give.

And some more questions.
I have login system on my site using login and password from forum (yabb SE), and if I install SMF should i change my login system?
And is there an option in SMF to turn on sound or pop-up notification about IM (PM).
What about hidden users option? MemberMap very useful. Who's online. Calendar edit. vBulletin smiles style.

What about Greek?
I have a translation for YaBB SE and I'm using it on my forums. I guess the SMF language file only has some new messages more, right? So, I could do it.

P.S.: I had sent an email that I have the greek translation of YaBB SE so that it will be available on yabbse.org, but never got a reply  :(
Title: Re:Language File Translations...

Alright... I'm planning like two "waves".  I'm going to give the language files to you guys soon, and then again in a few weeks... and the they might be ready for beta...

So far.. Spanish, German, Dutch, Norwegian, French, Hebrew, Swedish, Arabic, Vietnamese, Italian, Russian, Finnish, Danish, and Greek.

Wow, that's quite a few.... I'll get them off... soon.  Don't bug me, though :P.

Is it possible get smf source files too? It would be easyer to translate, if u can see admin panel and other not public features. Another solution; put test board somewhere and give admin rights to all translation dudes. It could be behind password or something.

It isn't publicly available, but we've made a Japanese language pack for YaBB SE by addapting a file meant for the original YaBB. Maybe we can bring it up to speed for SMF.

Post by: [Unknown] on August 18, 2003, 02:25:43 AM
Sorry, I'm not going to make a public testing area quite yet.  It's alright if you don't know what something means - just don't translate it and leave a note.  You can come back to it when/if you have the testing area.

Could someone please tell me the contexts of these strings in the language file?

$txt[176] = "on";
$txt[194] = 'reminder';
$txt[507] = 'Preview'; (Is it the noun or the verb?)
Title: Re:Language File Translations...
Post by: Gobalopper on September 12, 2003, 06:25:28 PM
146 - verb
176 - $post['member'] $txt[176] $post['time'] OR $txt[712] : $row['subject'], $txt[176] $mbname  $txt[713]
194 - $mbname $txt[36] $txt[194]
507 - verb
Title: Re:Language File Translations...
Post by: Daniel Hofverberg on September 12, 2003, 06:42:39 PM
Thanks for the information. That usage of $txt[194] is a problem though - With that order, it is impossible to have it make any sense and be grammatically correct in Swedish...

$txt[176] doesn't make much sense either - There is no way that string can work correctly in both those occasions...
Title: Re:Language File Translations...
Post by: Gobalopper on September 12, 2003, 07:45:41 PM
176 is used for quoting so it would be:
Quote from: username on Today at 04:56:48pm

and 194 is:
yourforumname password reminder.

I can and most likely will change 194 - thanks for bringing it to my attention.

176 is for use with dates.  For example, I posted this on September 12, 2003.  You posted that on September 12 as well.  It has nothing to do with turning on/off or putting on a table.

Case further assistance is needed in german lng then I can help in around 2 weeks.

Okay... obviously, I ran out of free time to do this.  And for that, I am very sorry.
(for clarification, this = coordinating the translations... not actually making them, just getting all of it taken care of.)

So, here's what I can do - if someone will volunteer to head it all, I'll send all the files I've received, as well as the current language files to them... and they can handle getting them translated.  It would be of great help to me, and would in all likely make the public beta come faster.

Anyone up for the challenge?

Just post here or send me a pm.

This is similar to an idea I proposed yesterday in the smf team forum, however with a forum instead of email:
What I would find great if happened before a public beta: setup a "language translation" board that means a board where all languages which have been translated so far are activated. Let only the language translators access this board and check if their translation is fine and complete.

I volunteer for coordinating/uploading the upgraded language files into this board.

I have holidays from today on and am at home with my girl. We are curing both our flu and havent the money to travel away for winter holidays. So spending some time in front of the computer right now...
I find it better to activate the language files in a language forum (which I volunteer to admin) such that they can be viewed in action. In addition I would prefer to have the language files attached to posts in that language forum instead recieving many emails. I personally would have better the overview think (and others could access the file, they would not be on my computer only). I still volunteer to do this job, of course my offer is meant to start right now during these xmas holidays where I got time to do it.
Title: Re: Language File Translations...
Post by: [Unknown] on December 23, 2003, 04:43:43 AM
(for the record, I missed that second sentence!)

Still, I'm sure if someone wants to help it would be a good thing...

But, when you say forum - wouldn't it be simpler to just make another board on this forum?

Title: Re: Language File Translations...
Post by: andrea on December 23, 2003, 04:53:06 AM
But, when you say forum - wouldn't it be simpler to just make another board on this forum?

Depends on some security issues. The most efficient would be if I could right upload the corrected files into that language test forum. In order to be able to translate the admin menu the translators would need admin rights (security?) - otherwise they can only revise the user area translations - which of course also would not be bad.

However somehow I think would be fine to also do the admin area from the beginning - I feel the time which I would invest in that language forum will be shorter than the time it costs if the public beta goes out with untested language files. Incomplete language files cause so many support requests and to many people start to translate and post their language version...
Title: Re: Language File Translations...
Post by: Tomer on December 23, 2003, 05:49:01 AM
[Unknown], I have free time, but can you please describe the job deatails again.

You will send me all the launagae files and I will list them all and see what is missing and whatever is missing to post here to ask people to make them, is that right?

The language file is 1 file right? That you add to the forum database and that gives you an option at Profile to change language, right?

And are the language files also including the buttons (are the buttons also translated) and lets say if I get to be head of this to I also have to make sure the buttons are also tranlated or only the forum.

If this is all correct I will be honored to do this, I have a week vacation and nothing better to do.

Post by: andrea on December 23, 2003, 07:05:46 AM
Amacythe that is a good table. You could add a separate column for the buttons. I recommend to use my button generator instead of creating them manually, this will spare lots of time. I can do the button gifs in all languages with the exception of arabic (and not sure maybe also not hebrew). I will do one or maybe 2 button styles, probably the classical yabb se style or the new default style once it has been selected. I have done (with the help of some language translators of course) these languages so far:
Buttons which are done:
arabic, german, dutch, english, french, finnish, hebrew, italian, norsk, portuguese, spanish, swedish

All the language translators have to do is to pass me over the texts which are on the buttons, I will modify this post later on and post the array which needs to be translated.

Edit: text file containing the button text array is attached to this post. Translators please pm or email me the translated strings.

Edit2: translators to languages with non-latin alphabet please pm me your email address and request the " button translator file and the special instructions for languages with non-latin alphabet".

So I just have to edit that .txt document with the hebrew tranlation to it:

example:

home= &#1489;&#1497;&#1514;(house in hebrew)EDIT- HEBREW DOESNT WORK IN THIS FORUM

but you wil not be able to understand the hebrew font cause your comp is not configured to hebrew.

Let us try this out. If you are able to translate into unicode then my computer will understand for sure. My question mark re. hebrew is not at all referring to the character representation but if with hebrew happens a similar issue as with arabic namely that the characters change the representation depending on their position in a word... Written arabic written is always handwriting thats the reason why my button translator cannot do arabic. My button generator can only do machine writing. I dont know the hebrew language enough, is there a similar phenomenon?

Still not sure if we talk of the same thing. I have no problems to represent arabic characters. My computer and my button generator can make single arabic characters without problem. However an arabic word is not made by simply combining single arabic characters... That is the problem.

andrea you can use a Unicode font like Ezra SIL for Hebrew:

In Hebrew there are only a few letters that will change and it is only if they are at the end of the word. If you need any help let me know.

No problem with the representation of hebrew (or arabic) characters, also not with the right to left direction.

Here are some sample hebrew buttons. Please check and feedback if that representation is correct. I do not speak hebrew so copied the text strings from a hebrew language yabb se board. My question is not if the precise text on the buttons is precisely right or not, but if the words represent hebrew in the correct way.

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fhubacher.net%2Fbuttonbuddy%2Fhebrew-button-samples.gif&hash=9982f7d2634dd74c8c5969844c1f53cb)

The problem with the arabic buttons is that each character has at least 3 different shapes (depending of the position in the word). With the current technique which I am creating the buttons this cannot be done.

Maybe my table should list up to date instead of complete then?  Let me know how you want this handled please.

Hmm... still thinking about some things...

A Hindi translation would be nice...

You mean Urdu (which covers a wider spectrum)?

On that note, A.M.A (Arabme) did translate it to Arabic, so is that gonna happen again?

-Behr

You should have both, Hindi and Urdu, though it's the "same" language. While the vocabulary is mainly identical so that Hindi speakers understand Urdu and vice-versa (the chief differences being that legal, religious and philosophic terms tend to be drawn from Persian and Arabic in Urdu against Sanskrit in Hindi), the scripts are completely different, Urdu being written in an adaption from the Persian script and Hindi in Devanagari. Offering only Urdu script would be considered a disregard to the Hindu communities and offering only Devanagari a disregard to the Muslim communities. Furthermore, having only one of the scripts would make it unaccessible to the communities using the other with the exception of intellectuals who are conversant with both scripts.

I don't know if anyone has answered about this, but I can translate from English to European Portuguese.

I have done so for YaBB Gold and adapted it to our currently YaBB SE version.

If you are interested please be free to say so!

PS. I am qualified and do frequent professional work as an English - Portuguese translator.  ;)

Post by: [Unknown] on March 03, 2004, 07:19:27 PM
Just an update to everyone...

After looking at some things after the first translations, I decided that it would be best to wait until the public beta to ask for translations - primarily because of the number of language file changes happening all of the time.

We'll get back to you guys shortly though ;).

I'm here! And I will do it, I swear! :) I started translating a language file that I_don't_remember_who gave me, but maybe it's old now.
Can anyone give me the latest english language file?

I can do the button gifs in all languages ...

Can you check if greek works for you? Take the greek alphabet:
αβγδεζηθικλμνξοπρστυφχψω
If you don't see it, try character encoding: Greek ISO-8859-7 or Greek Windows-1253

Sure, greek works fine (see attached sample button below, containing greek alphabet). Please pm me your email address, will send you the translation file and instructions for languages with non-latin alphabet.

I translated the default buttons into 9 languages (arabic, dutch, english, finnisch, french, german, italian, portuguese, spanish), and passed these last week over to the SMF team.

For some languages I need the 3 new button texts translated:
- User info
- News box
- Key stats

Can anyone who is interested in helping with translations please PM me, so I know what everyone's doing?

I've PMed most of the people that have volunteered only, according to Amacythe's table, so, if anyone I have PMed can let me know if they're still interested in translating for SMF, that'll be great :)

I'm going to lock this topic, since it's gotten long and bloated.

I'll let Bostasp decide how to handle things related to language files from now, because he is the person in charge of that ;).  Please message him as he asked if you would like to help.... the Simple Machines Team as well as the community really appreciates it.

Thanks,
