Translators Wanted
« on: August 19, 2005, 03:52:02 PM »
I'd like to start a thread where people capable of translating small amounts of english text into other languages could indicate their willingness to help out with such translations?

I'm not talking about big jobs like full help files, i'm thinking more like a few critical web pages, and maybe some of key text in our programs.  I especially want to make sure that the people who come to the site to retrieve a freeware license don't end up frustrated with the process.

If you'd be willing to help out please make a follow-up post here stating which languages you feel comfortable in translating to, or email me directly if you prefer (mouser@donationcoder.com).

If you need only occasional, short bits of straightforward translation I may be able to bully a friend into helping a bit for French, Spanish and German. She teaches all three languages but may not have lots of techincal computer jargon at her finger tips.

Hello !

As new member of this forum, I'm discovering the site, the soft, the spirit of the work. I could translate in French and in Esperanto. I'm teacher in primary school, I've not always a lot of time to translate, but if the work can be submitted long before, I'm the right man.

 :)Maybe I'm the newest in the forum and don't know if there's an Spanish translation of the soft & help file, so I can do the job, anytime no problems. Regards. Peace & luck.
PD: I'm just trying Screenshot Captor for the first time.

welcome everyone!

i hope we will soon have some localizable versions of our software and be able to ask for some help translating.

if anyone knows of any website that show how to use our programs in another languages, please post and i will add a link to them; or if anyone wants to write some instructions we would be happy to host them.

I guess I could do a little translation to Danish - I probably have a little more free time than poor ol' Jibz :)

Hm, seems like the forum software doesn't handle unicode properly? Or perhaps I'm missing a font? :)

I'm Chinese,"Unicode" in Chinese doesn't have a local translation,
we just use English,so "Unicode Image Maker" could be translated into "Unicode图形制作" maybe in Chinese,
why maybe?Because I don't know the  exact meaning or function of "Unicode Image Maker". :-[

I'll volunteer to do a program in Korean - well... it won't be 100% perfect, but I'm still darn good  :D I figure I can get at least 95%+

Although I'm an English speaker, I've actually corrected the original Korean in programs a few times, so I should be able to produce something decent.  I can proabably get a friend to help proof-read as well, which should be near picture perfect.

I can't guarantee a timeframe though. What should take a day could take me a month to get done. But at least it would be done...
