Forum Languages...

Post by Henri da Flipper on 8/11/2011, 8:36 pm

Alright, hello people, welcome to a mini rant on the forum languages, as you may know I speak almost every descendent of latin AND latin, and being my first language, I decided to try out the forum in my language so I could complain, and maybe mods would see this(they certainly will >:D) and agree with my angryness or whatchumacallit.

Anywho, I was walking through my neighbourhood the other day and thought "Epá o site tá meio doido, de vez em quando podiamos arranjar ai umas restricções ou o Catarino e talvez podéssemos enviar o Empire pa Marte para termos um representante intergaláctico e talvez eu devia arranjar mais coisas no site sobre as quais possa mandar vir! ... aquilo é pastilha no chão? YUM!"(I don't think in english Morons... -.-)
Anywho, that roughly translates to Three main ideas I had:
1: Make restrictions for the forum, including post-lenght and making a paper to fill out in order to enter(simple questions and whatnot)
2: Get an intergalactic representative for TBH
3: Get stuff to complain about.

I went with number 3(it's when you go number one and number two at the same time... I'm reduced to toilet humor) and decided to change the forum language to my own...

LET THE RANTING COMENCE!

1: they call topics in the main page(recent topics) "Subjects" yet in the new topic page I'm in it's called "New Topic"... gnarly, duuuuuuuuuuuuuude

2: the world replacing search is a wrong one, which usually means "fetch" it's mostly used in brazil... IT'S OUR LANGUAGE, SO WE DECIDE HOW IT'S WRITTEN IN THE WEB, GOD DANG IT!(I've been having that problem since the ortographic accord was revealed as stating the portuguese language used in portugal is going to change massively yet the one used in brazil ain't gonna be changin' at al... WUT UP WIT DAT?)

3: Private messages is translated correctly, in a way so I can't make "private" jokes... it also ticks me off how it looks...

4: FAQ isn't translated... (I'm assuming FAQ means Fake and Qu#$r... assuming)

5: it has a little thing in the top saying "current date/hour"... it's translated into brazillian not portuguese, seeing as "current"(actual) is written with no c, becoming "atual", which is stupid...(this happens with many other stuff...)

6: they use mixtures of languages, "close tags", for example, is half translated, leaving "tags" intact...

7: "view more emoticons" isn't translated...

8: nothing under a user's profile pic is translated... seriously? o_o

9: actions(right up there next to "share") is translated as "More!"... I kid you not, they literally added an exclamation mark...

10: foes(in friends and foes) is translated to "ignored".

I could go on and on but I'm sleepy, I volunteer to translate if needed, but crap, I know this isn't the forum's fault so much as it is forummotion, but STILL!

I'm uber irritated, and I hope it showed... xD

Cheers, ma nerf-herders.

Sorry, Octan, I think I should have made this clearer.

THIS TOPIC/RANT IS FOR ENTERTAINEMENT PURPOSES ONLY, HENCE THE JOKES.

After seeing that message about entertainment purposes, I re-read it, and now I say "lol"

Well Henri as you know we aren't running on a major server, we have limitations and things won't translate correctly. I can fix some things but not much because it deal with whatever translating service you are using.
