Solved English Terms of Service

Post by adukes_007 on April 19th 2011, 10:07 pm

The TOS on the registration page seems to be poorly translated. It is easy to see that it was written by a non-native English speaker. Is this someting that Forumotion might fix in the near future?

Edit: I made my suggestions at the following topic- http://help.forumotion.com/t7455-help-us-spelling-grammar-structure-errors-in-english

We already know about this. I have no idea what the status is about it.

Dunno? remember forumotion is a french host too, So guess it's not perfect, but then again who speaks or writes perfect English this day and age...i sure as heck dont.. have you heard the way the majority of inner city Americans talk these days.. lord get me out of here.

It all be bout Ebonics dog.. ya dig lol! banana lol!

just kidding but for real considering how bad some Americans talk and write,i think the french did very well with there translation.. alot better then most would do it where i am from blackeye

"Internet is neither an anonymous space, nor a space of no-right! " is the phrase that bothers me the most...it sounds like a French version of Ebonics. "You thus admit that all the messages posted on this forum express the sight and opinion of their respective authors..." I understand the opinion part but the "sight" part is strange. I'm just saying that it needs some tweaks. I'm originally from the south, so proper English is a second language too me. lol

the sight part, i think they mean incite? lol dunno i dint really think into that one.

But i noticed the french and other non English Europeans use thus alot.
I actually find my self useing that word more then i ever did before as a habit from being here for a few years... lol I was raised in the city, so i still tend to have some ghetto in me at times. rambo

The British are the ones that realy have proper English the way it's supposed to be...

Anyway it is what it is,i am sure forumotion will get a round to tweaking it sooner or latter, but it's been that way for as long as i can remember, so i guess they are happy with it that way? It still has everything pretty much clear and to the point.

Anymore questions with this or is it safe to mark and lock now.
I dont want to start going into a full blown discussion, unless you want me to move it to the discussions board.. but i doubt typlo would like that very much with us picking on their french interpretations..LMBO. Razz
All the same ,I think it's fine and to the point.
