Title: Website and software translations
Post by: HostFat on May 24, 2010, 11:56:41 AM
Can I help to translate the official homepage ( and main others ) into italian language?
Is there a way to make it easy for many other random people that want to do the same?

Translations are very welcome! Translations show that there's a big community behind a project, and are of course helpful to those who don't speak English. You can post your translation in this thread as an attached txt-file. Please use the same html tags (h1, h2, h3, ul, li, strong, em, img, a) as in the English page. You can translate the front page and the FAQ, or just the front page if the FAQ feels too long. Trade page changes too often to be translated, and contact info is unnecessary for people who don't speak English.

German, Spanish, Chinese and Russian translations would be especially helpful, as they're big language areas that have a lot of people who don't speak English. Of course other languages are good to have too.

Attached: the English pages with html tags, to be used as a template for translation. Download notepad++ if you want syntax highlighting :)

Edit 6.1.2011: You can add and update translations at https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Bitcoin.org_translations.


Update 9.8.2013: Bitcoin.org translations: https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/bitcoinorg/

Eh, me too... this post finally got me started, actually. I'm using Google's Translation Toolkit, so if you want in on the fun, PM me with your Google account name, and I'll invite you to contribute to or comment on the translation.

Italian homepage :)

Sorry, I ninja-edited my post while you were translating. Realized that an attachment is better than a long code block that makes the thread difficult to read (I'll remove it from your post).

Thanks for your translation, I'll add it!


Title: Re: Website translations

Title: Re: Website translations
Post by: D҉ataWraith on May 24, 2010, 02:44:08 PM
Even though I've started using Google's Tools now, it would probably be a good idea to put all of this under version control. That'd also make it easier to see when the original page changes and you need to update the translation. I especially like how http://whygitisbetterthanx.com/ (http://whygitisbetterthanx.com) does it -- with one branch per language in a git repository (see bottom of page).

Edit: Bitcoin front page is done. Would be good if someone else could proof-read it though. SmokeTooMuch?


Title: Re: Website translations
Post by: SmokeTooMuch on May 24, 2010, 09:04:57 PM
In my opinion your translation is fine, DataWraith.

Just two things:
1. I think the "f" in Sourceforge should be uppercase. At least that`s what wikipedia tells me.
2.
Quote
Abhängig davon, wieviel CPU-Zeit im Leerlauf Sie beitragen können, kann es einige Tage dauern bis die ersten Münzen erzeugt werden &endash; haben Sie also bitte etwas Geduld.
It sounds better when you write it like this:
Abhängig davon, wieviel CPU-Zeit Sie im Leerlauf beitragen können, kann es einige Tage dauern bis die ersten Münzen erzeugt werden - haben Sie also bitte etwas Geduld.
(the &endash; doesn`t get resolved correctly, you better check that again or replace it with a normal comma)

Title: Re: Website translations

My pleasure. :)

I've fixed the problems SmokeTooMuch mentioned (thanks!) in the attached version. I also should have the FAQ translated soonish (first draft is done).

We also might want to update the numbers. Even though the FAQ explicitly states that it dates back to October 2009, claiming 500 generated Bitcoins per day as achievable amount might give rise to disappointment.

Does anyone want to translate the Bitcoin client itself?  It would be great to have at least one other language in the 0.3 release.

All you have to do is get poedit and translate the po file I'm attaching to this post.  It's less than 750 words.

Updated bitcoin.po attachment for 0.3.1

Title: Re: Website translations
Post by: D҉ataWraith on May 27, 2010, 10:06:29 AM
I'm done with the FAQ, it's attached to this post. I've also attached the front_page again, because the "Advantages:" before the list of bullet points needed to be in its own paragraph (I assume from the structure of the files that three blank lines serve as paragraph-break in whatever  CMS is used for the homepage).
 
I'll also take a look at the .po-file, but it'll probably take a few days.


Title: Re: Website translations
Post by: HostFat on May 27, 2010, 11:03:36 AM
Here there is the italian translation of the software.
There can be some mistakes, but it's just ok for the first version :)
I hope that someone will come to do something better.


Title: Re: Website translations

Hurray!  We have our first language.  I uploaded it to SVN to go in with the 0.3 release.

Here's the German translation for the client.

It may require some modification, because, on average, German sentences are a third longer than English ones and thus may not fit the available space. Also, I couldn't test the access keys (e.g. E&xit) properly, so I may have introduced collisions there...

I got the simplified and traditional Chinese translations of bitcoin.org front page from my friend Michael Chen. Thanks Michael!

The simplified page still says "page not found" for some reason, I'm trying to make it work.

For the record: the Dutch translation is by giik.

Sirius, Can you update the German translation of the frontpage to the last version I posted? It contains the fixes proposed by SmokeTooMuch, foremost for the screwup with the – HTML entity. I'll attach it to this post again, for your convenience.

Thanks to Jonatan Lehtonen for the Swedish front page translation.

I recommend to remove the download links at the bottom of the main page.
As you can see the links on the English page points to the new 0.3 release, but the other languages only contain links for the old 0.2 version.
There's a download box with the current releases on the right anyway, so why not remove the links from the translated pages.

Here is the spanish po file. When I can see it into the program, I'll check the translation errors and I'll try to fix it ;)

Tomorrow I'll start to traslate the main web and the last will be the faq  ;)

PD: Can anyone post the last versión of the main web and the faq in txt file? The txt's that I've downloaded are older. Thanks!

Edit: I'll check and update the spanish po file  ;)

Title: Re: Website and software translations
Post by: aidos on July 15, 2010, 12:49:11 AM
Ok here is the .po file for French. While I'm at it, I noted a couple of issues:

1. The "About" box didn't take the translation into account, it still displays the english version to me, even though the rest of the software is using the translated strings, and the .po file contains the translation string of the "About" box message. Same problem with the "Apply" button in the Settings window.
2. If an transaction's description in the list of transaction in the main window contains a diacritical character (such as "éŕčç"), it's not displayed. I suppose the string is not being properly handled as UTF8 somewhere.
3. Some translated strings don't fit in the dialog box anymore (French is a bit more verbose than English). Some cases can be solved by inserting a "\n", but that's not always possible (window titles for example).
4. About the .po file :
   - There are a few strings in the .po file that don't needs translation (ie: "Bitcoin"). Maybe those shouldn't be inside _("...") ?
   - Others shouldn't be split. I can remember one message about transaction fee where the string is split in two to insert the fee value, where you could simply have put a %s. It makes the message harder to translate as I had to go in the source to find exactly what was going on.
   - Some strings have whitespace at the end or start, which necessity is very debatable, and it's easy to miss in PoEdit.
   - Many strings have all their words capitalized, which just looks strange in French. I checked, none of my other software do it, so I've used normal capitalization everywhere.
   - There are a couple message strings that are almost identical, maybe using the same string for each of those messages would be better ? Example : "This is an oversized transaction that requires a transaction fee of %s" and "Error: This is an oversized transaction that requires a transaction fee of %s  ". It's the exact same text except for "Error:" at the beginning and an extra space at the end (which is probably useless ?).

Finally, The provided .po file is not up-to-date, as one of the settings string has changed, and is not getting translated (the one about starting Bitcoin at login).

Otherwise Bitcoin seems like a great concept, good work !

I need to give an updated .po file.

2. If an transaction's description in the list of transaction in the main window contains a diacritical character (such as "éŕčç"), it's not displayed. I suppose the string is not being properly handled as UTF8 somewhere.
OK, this must be a problem somewhere, I'll have to take a look at it or one of the other devs can.

   - Some strings have whitespace at the end or start, which necessity is very debatable, and it's easy to miss in PoEdit.
Many of the strings are in code automatically generated from uiproject.fbp where nothing can be done about these things.  I have a program I use to find all the spacing inconsistencies at the beginning and ending of strings in your .po file and manually fix them up before I upload them to SVN.


Title: Re: Website and software translations
Post by: satoshi on July 15, 2010, 06:37:13 PM
I uploaded an updated bitcoin.po for 0.3.1 attached to this message:
http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=151.msg1259#msg1259

please use it if you're starting a new translation.

If you already have a po file, poedit can update it. 
- Get the src directory from the 0.3.1 release candidate posted in the development forum, any version will do:
http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=383.0
- Make a subdirectory under src: locale/??/LC_MESSAGES
(?? could be anything really, "en" or your language 2-letter code)
- Put your .po file there
- Open it with poedit
- In poedit, Catalog->Update from sources

The key is that the src directory with the sourcefiles needs to be 3 directories up from the .po file.

I updated them to 0.3.0.

I am tempted to remove the download links from the other languages and only keep it on English.

They will need to be updated for 0.3.1 soon.  Perhaps there's a way for someone to manage the updating of the translated drupal pages.

Title: Re: Website and software translations
Post by: eurekafag on July 16, 2010, 11:42:15 AM
BTW, there is a bug with translating this string:

#: ../../../ui.cpp:634
msgid "From: unknown, Received with: "

Russian translation doesn't show in the main window, only colons and comma appear. So it looks like: « : , : 18RRVv...» (cut the address) Looks like unicode problem, although there is correctly translated string in the first column (confirmations ⇒ подтверждений). Despite this the translation is almost complete but I have to be sure that everything looks like it should.


Title: Re: Website and software translations
Post by: d1337r on July 16, 2010, 02:43:08 PM
BTW, translated the wiki page "getting started" to Russian. There should be a DokuWiki add-on or setting which displays the 'translations of this page' combobox like the home page of dokuwiki.org. For now, it's just a link in the getting started page.


Title: Re: Website and software translations
Post by: eurekafag on July 16, 2010, 03:02:01 PM
Looks like the translation is nice, except the already mentioned bug. File attached.

Fix: I reuploaded the file with some corrects. I don't really get what does "Net amount:" mean so translated it literally.

Your traduction doesn't seems very good.  For instance, we can't use 'kriptmonunuo' since the word 'kripto' doesn't mean 'to cypher' at all.  The correct esperantist world is 'Cxifri', I think.

:O Grondilu, you are correct. I didn't know that kripto meant that. I thought it was a synonym for ĉifro!

Anyway, that's fixed now. Are there any other errors? http://ompldr.org/vNW83OQ/index.html

By the way, the English word for 'traduction' is 'translation'.

Cxifromono seems much better, I think.   I'm not a very experienced esperantist, so I'm not much confident about my skills to judge your translation.  I suggest you post your work on soc.culture.esperanto or something.

Pretty cool, hum ?  :-)

But I'll feel much better when someone edit the current page and change the horrible word 'Kriptomonunuo' to 'Cxifromono'.


Title: Re: Website and software translations
Post by: LZ on September 30, 2010, 08:03:58 AM
Yeah, it would be very funny. :D

I also have a claim to the translation but to the Bitcoin's Russian localization.
We have historically two variants of the word 'transaction'. One word is used
in banks and business when it comes to money transfer, and another word is
used in computer science: words 'трансакция' and 'транзакция' accordingly.


Title: Re: Website and software translations
Post by: eurekafag on September 30, 2010, 08:08:39 AM
I updated the translation and replaced «транзакция» with more neutral and casual word «перевод». Also made some corrections on other phrases.

Hi guys,

I only heard about the bitcoin project a few days ago from my friend and really liked the idea. Since then my PC has been trying to generate some bitcoins. :)

I am going to translate the page to Polish. I assume all I do is just view the HTML source of the original page and replace English with Polish?

Thanks and regards.

In addition to the kriptomonunuo problem, there's another problem that the righthand side menu for all languages is English no matter which language is selected!

Maybe you should pm sirius-m directly.

But please first make sure that the translation is correct now, because I guess he won't be happy if we disturb him twice for a translation, especially with this language !

Seriously : could anyone replace "Kriptomonunuo" by "Cxifromono" in the esperanto page ?   "Kriptomonunuo" is very ugly for it means "the money unit from the crypt".   In esperanto, "kripto" is the underground cell where we burry dead people.

Please !

Where can I find the latest English .po file to keep the translation up-to-date?
poedit does it.  Either get the src directory from a release, or download it with SVN.  Place your .po file 3 directories deep under the src directory.  Open it with poedit and do Catalog->Update from sources.

So for example, you have:
src
src\base58.h
src\bignum.h
...
src\util.cpp
src\util.h
src\xpm
src\locale\ru\LC_MESSAGES\bitcoin.po

Open bitcoin.po with poedit, do Catalog->Update from sources.  It looks for the sourcecode up 3 directories (..\..\..) from where bitcoin.po is.

This updates your existing .po file you already worked on and adds any news strings.  It may try to match close strings, so check things over and make sure it didn't make any bad guesses.

Make sure you use the .po file I uploaded to SVN or in a release, because I always fix up at least a few things.  I'm attaching your Russian one to this message.


Title: Re: Website and software translations
Post by: eurekafag on October 05, 2010, 07:50:48 AM
Shame on me, I haven't know about this useful tool before. Thanks for the clear explanation I've updated the translation according to rev160. How often should I review and update the translation? That's not a problem to do this for every revision but I don't want to spam this topic with translations every 2-3 days. Maybe it's good to make an announce that new release is coming in a few days so translators could update their files in time?


Title: Re: Website and software translations
Post by: satoshi on October 06, 2010, 03:42:39 PM
poedit reorganised the file for some reason.  I re-ran update from sources and it put it back in the original order so it's fine now.  Did you run it on a drive where files aren't sorted alphabetically, like a FAT drive or USB flash drive?

Strings aren't added or changed very often.  It's months before enough changes build up.

I uploaded the changes.

This Windows build has the Russian translation in it:
http://www.bitcoin.org/download/bitcoin-0.3.13.2-win32-setup.exe


Title: Re: Website and software translations
Post by: eurekafag on October 06, 2010, 07:39:36 PM
Strange enough. I ran it on my usual XFS and new untranslated strings appeared on top. Is the order so important? I guess it's not for the program and for translators because when one use poedit he can always check what the particular string belongs to. By the way, there are some similar lines that possibly may be replaced by one. They are very close by meaning and differs only by 1-2 words. Just a suggestion of course.


Title: Re: Website and software translations
Post by: satoshi on October 21, 2010, 10:50:47 PM
The order matters not to the program, but it matters to me maintaining it.  If it jumbles the order of the .po file then I can't diff for changes.  I have to update all 7 translation files when I change the English text in the program, and it's easier when they're all in the same order.

I can still put it back into normal order by making poedit rescan it.

It is normal that untranslated strings are shown on top.

By the way, there are some similar lines that possibly may be replaced by one. They are very close by meaning and differs only by 1-2 words. Just a suggestion of course.
I know, but not easily without complicating the sourcecode.

Bitcoin  p2p waluta kryprograficzna.


Bitcoin jest opartą o sieć peer-to-peer (p2p) cyfrową walutą. Peer-to-peer (P2P) gwarantuje, że nie ma centralnej instytucji która miałaby wpływ na nowe pieniądze oraz nikt nie może śledzić tranzakcji. Rolę tej instytucji przejmują węzły sieci które współpracują  wspólnie w sieci.
Zalety:

Transfer pieniędzy przez sieć jest łatwy i prosty, bez ingerencji osób trzecich (np. Banków)
 Osoby trzecie nie mogą zapobiec ani kontrolować tranzakcji
Tranzakcje Bitcoin są praktycznie bezpłatne , podczas gdy karty kredytowe oraz płatności online zazwyczaj kosztują od 1 – 5% od tranzakcji plus inne dodatkowe opłaty manipulacyjne nawet to kilkuset dolarów
Jesteś zabezpieczony przed niestabilnością rezerw banków oraz złej polityki banków centralnych. Ograniczona inflacja systemu monetarnego Bitcoin oraz równomierna dystrybucja pieniądza (przez moc CPU) w obrębie sieci bitcoin, nie zmonopolizowana przez banki.

Bitcoin jest projektem open source stworzonym przez Satoshi Nakamoto, a obecnie jest na etapie rozwoju. Rozwianie projektu jest wspierane przez SourceForge.

Zrzuty ekranu: (screenshots)

 

Jak używać bitcoin:

Przejdź do Options->Generate Coins  by wygenerować kilka monet oraz wspierać działanie sieci. Bitcoin działa w tle kiedy twój komputer jest w stanie bezczynności i nie powinien spowalniać innych programów. Generowanie bitcoin może zająć wiele dni, więc musisz uzbroić się w cierpliwość. Czas generowania może być różny i zależeć od tego ile czasu procesora jest efektywnie wykorzystane. Docelowo całkowita ilość pieniędzy w obiegu nie przekroczy 21 milionów i nigdy nie będzie więcej monet powyżej tej wartości. Pieniądze będą wprowadzane do obiegu stopniowo i równomiernie przez wiele lat przez węzły tworzące sieć, proporcjonalnie do wniesionego czasu pracy CPU.

By program mógł odbierać połączenia musisz odblokować port 8333 TCP na twoim firewallu/ routerze. To znacznie zwiększy liczbę węzłów z którymi będziesz się mógł połączyć.

Bitcoin może używać sieci TOR. Opcja ta dostępna jest z linii komend:
bitcoin -proxy=127.0.0.1:9050

Jeżeli chcesz pozostać anonimowy, nie wyjawiaj żadnych informacji łączących twój adres konta bitcoin z twoimi danymi osobowymi. Zamiast tego powinieneś użyć nowego adresu konta dla każdej płatności (tranzakcji) którą otrzymujesz.

gavin maintains a git repo with a clone of the svn repo synced almost realtime.
he also maintains some feature branches and a merge of the aforementioned.

It would indeed be very nice if commits took place on git in the first place, i'm sure pull requests would flow.

But then again, git is scary when you're used to svn.
I once migrated a project i was working on with another dev from svn to git, i got loads of insults the first week, questions the second week, and the third week everything was going much smoother. This particular dev now has like 20 projects/forks on git :D

I`s hard to say. If you feel, that currrent translation variant cant be done with respect to the rules of Finnish language, you should post that case loud and clear.
Label word  is used for :
sticker, tag, mark,  marks, marking, ticket, tally, docked, designation, etc.

Now, Ukrainian translation of client is available here (http://www.transifex.net/projects/p/bitcoin/resource/tx/).

Some issues:
1. Decimal mark in Ukrainian is comma. And "Fee 0.01" in Ukrainian looks like "Комісія: 0,01". I don't know if Bitcoin-client care about this, but if not, "0,01" may be a bad example for user.
2. I don't see where my translation in client is, and don't know in such cases "&" may duplicate letters ("&Export...", "&Encrypt Wallet") and in such may not ("&Options...", "Open &Bitcoin"). I tried to use unique letter in each case, but it's impossible. My translation may contain duplicated "&"-letters. How can I fix it?

What else can I do, for including Ukrainian translation in official client?

Dear all.
I've added a small portion of serenata's greek translation for completion(el_gr). A member on transifex noted that a translation like this would not work in Cyprus and was absolutely right. An el only version would work (if greek was the desired language) or an el_CY. if there is a member that lives in Cyprus and would like to contribute please respond and take appropriate actions.
You could either download the greek el_gr and rename to el_CY (for greek) or download the default english and rename it to en_CY.
I am not a resident and i feel its not my call to make.

As for the bounty, I can't give anything myself as I'm 100% volunteer. However, there is a lot of people on these forums who could be interested to give some tips (if you are reading this and are interested to give a tip for this job to be done, please do!). I may also ask for a bounty on the forums to give a tip both for existing and new translators. Meanwhile, nobody is paid, everything is done for free, thanks to everyone who contributed so far.

Can I help to translate the official homepage ( and main others ) into italian language?
Is there a way to make it easy for many other random people that want to do the same?

Translations are very welcome! Translations show that there's a big community behind a project, and are of course helpful to those who don't speak English. You can post your translation in this thread as an attached txt-file. Please use the same html tags (h1, h2, h3, ul, li, strong, em, img, a) as in the English page. You can translate the front page and the FAQ, or just the front page if the FAQ feels too long. Trade page changes too often to be translated, and contact info is unnecessary for people who don't speak English.

German, Spanish, Chinese and Russian translations would be especially helpful, as they're big language areas that have a lot of people who don't speak English. Of course other languages are good to have too.

Attached: the English pages with html tags, to be used as a template for translation. Download notepad++ if you want syntax highlighting :)

Edit 6.1.2011: You can add and update translations at https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Bitcoin.org_translations.


Update 9.8.2013: Bitcoin.org translations: https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/bitcoinorg/
thank you for sharing this very useful information

Translations are very welcome! They help people that don't speak English. I'm italian, too.
Personally, I'm using Google Translate at the moment, butI know enough well English and
verbal tenses as simple past, present continuos, present perfect, the futures...
I get along with English, so I've no problems!

Google translate can not do a good job sometimes. The translation is too stiff and does not explain well.

I use Google Chrome and it lets me select the option to translate the page in English to another language. It is the best way while there are other sites as well which you can try to translate as Google does not translate every word.

I think Translation facility must be present on website because many local or International businesses need translators to translate marketing materials, contracts, manuals, and other documents, while law firms with multiracial or multinational clients also have lots of legal agreements and documents that need to be translated.

Not all of time the google translator is correct, If you notice its only translate it word by word. So your sentence will be wrong. If you cant understand the english language, just practice until you know what is the correct grammar and also the correct word that you must use in the sentence. He/She will not thank to you because you are wrong. ;D

But is better to practice english so that you dont need the translation. Sometimes the translation tools are incorrect because its translate only the sentence words by words not the whole sentence.

thank all! I am new here, very helpful you are.................
If the english language is your second language i suggested to you that keep practicing so that you may know what are the correct words or your grammar. its ok to have a mistake or having a wrong grammar and if you dont know what is the correct spelling, you may ask google.

Its okay to use translator. But don't translate the whole sentence because sometimes the translator is wrong .
And practice without translator so that you will be good in english.

I suggest using one-language translator that shows you HOW to use an expression besides WHAT is means. In addition, these tools could come handy in many cases. They do not replace your knowledge, though. They help you use it in an easier way.

Yeah its always have a error if you translate sentence by sentence, it must words only and try to use that word into your sentence you will notice that its correct. because google translate software is created to translate words not your statement.

I would like to know the method of translation...Please share more details.
To check any translation from any language to English or your mother tongue language, I always use Google, but there are several softwares developed nowadays, which makes you easier to know the sentence in your own languages with one click.you don't have to ask anyone or seek the meanings of other's language.


Title: Re: Website and software translations

I uploaded the 97% complete Dutch translation to SVN.  Thanks!  ;D
Wow its nice to know about it, hope you are feeling comfortable using this software to translate any language or german languages. I simply use Google, which really helps with the full translation of the line required to know about it. Adding lots of software in mobile or computers slow the speed of working condition of your mobile or computers.
