Gaelic - anyone?

Postby FrankA3 » Tue Aug 26, 2008 3:21 pm

I am trying to find someone to make a Gaelic translation of 1.0.15 front end. Apart from special editors are there any other tools available?

If anyone passing understands Gaelic and interested in getting involved just say hi! :)

Hi FrankA3,

Not sure if its Gaelic content translation or actually the frontend core translation you need in Gaelic.

In case its a frontend language package, then you could have a look at the Irish/Gaelic here:
http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/irish/frs/
That file ga-IE 1.0.13.zip will work just fine for 1.0.15

Both but want to start with core front-end, then Joomfish the rest of the navigation... content itself would be a rather a challenge as it is growing fast. I have feelers out in the Gaelic (Scottish) community, so hoping to get a volunteer or two. I need to work out what tools and things are useful and get those into place for when I find someone.

I would upset people if I used the Irish Gaelic, there are significant differences :eek: but it could be useful as a starting point as there are a lot of identical words.

Hi FrankA3
How have you got on with a gaelic language for the frontend? I am also interested in this.
Any update would be really valuable
Thanks

Hi FrankA3,
Sorry to hear that. I can understand how difficult it is to have a good translation. Hopefully we will have it soon in Irish with the help of a professional translator. But it took a lot of initiative, good news and bad news. Finding volunteers is hard, and translating strings from a software is not fun obviously. And our "surviving Celtic languages" had nothing to compare with native languages that are used primarily by a large community!!

Anyway, keep the faith, and all the Best!

Good to hear! Would love to help but don't ken the language myself or I would have dome it myself! I just have a Scottish community and thought it might be popular.

Nope, you have to contact directly the coordinator:
