Better translations

Post by -MiSHmaSH- on October 7th 2013, 12:33 am

Hello!
I start to be angry by my translation in Latvian. Why?
The translation is not fully complete so it's 40% Latvian and 60% English. The ACP is only in English but some words are translated. And there are a lot of mistakes. So i suggest forumotion to retranslate all languages.

While I do agree some languages are not so greatly worded is because FM require someone who works their and someone who knows both French and the chosen language to translate.

I also don't think self translation would be a good thing as that could seriously mess up the ACP and it honestly isn't a feature we strongly need.

This is correct. The issue of incorrect, or insofficient translations has been brough to the attention of the FM office on many occasions, however as they don't have a communications office for each specific language, they are unable to assertain a full translation.

An option for founders to edit translations is not really a good idea. Each forum in a certain language would not be effected.

Well to be honest the current suggestion can't be implemented unless someone at head office can speak Latvian. So its going to be somewhat unlikely that the suggestion will be implemented any time soon.

Yes, that is not translation, that is garbage.
Why don't you forumotion staff create translation application and send to people who could translate? Like this - forumotion send that aplication for me, I fill it and send back. I would do that for free!!! Every time forumotion create new update just send me what I have to translate! Is it too hard?!
