No Irish Board
« on: June 20, 2013, 01:20:58 PM »
In the international section there is no irish board. I'm irish myself. Irish is the language I grew up with. I'd like to see an irish support board. Irish and English are my main languages. Kindly, put up, I support.

Thanks.

The vast majority of Irish users also speak English.

Indeed one of our support team is himself Irish.

Then we'd have to have a Scots board too.  'Nuff said  :P

As we have already stated this will be highly unlikely.

Hi Nicholaus, good to see another Irish person around these parts. As has been stated, there is little chance for an Irish board as there would be very little activity as 99.9% of Irish speakers also speak English.

If your willing to help and commit some time here and there maybe you would be interested in making an Irish language pack for SMF, it just involves translating the strings from English to Irish.

Hi Nicholaus, welcome to SMF! :) I understand what you mean, however, before we can create an Irish board, there should at least be an Irish language pack and at least a few Irish-speaking users. In order to become a translator, please take a look at this topic:
SMF is searching for translators!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. :)
