123 - Bulgarian Installation Manual

Postby unndomiell » Sat Dec 08, 2007 5:50 pm

Hello, I'm Mira from Bulgaria and I added comment " I claim this task" 2 days ago.
I want to translate the manual in Bulgarian but the status of the task hasn't been changed yet.
I've checked and Bulgarian hasn't been claimed.
Should I proceed with the translation or not?  ???

Hi Amy and unndomiell,

let me share my points about the translation in Bulgarian.
Overall it can be assessed as good.
Although I have some remarks, which I am not sure that are valid for the GHOP:

1. Screenshots are not changed, therefore the installation screenshots are in English. While a Bulgarian user would most probably consider choosing the Bulgarian as an installation language. This leads to that some phrases (mainly buttons) are left untranslated.
2. The translation style used is not the best one and significantly differs from the current translation of Joomla! in Bulgarian. Especially when we talk about transcripting English words, when there is a Bulgarian equivalent. (i.e. account is not translated but transliterated - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transliteration )
3. Some words/phrases are translated directly, which makes them hard to understand in Bulgarian. Re-wording would be a better option.

As I said, I am not 100% sure what part of that is covered and has something to do with the GHOP. The overall impression is good.

Hope that I was helpfull.

Hi,

In terms of screen shots, we have that as an extra credit piece. It would certainly be great to have them in Bulgarian.

In terms of style, I think this is worth looking and maybe you can give unndomiell some specific comments or point to documents that might be helpful.

We are trying to strke a blanace between wanting great work and knowing that these are challenging tasks.
So we must fix our vision not merely on the negative expulsion of war, but upon the positive affirmation of peace. MLK 1964.

Mira -

You can make adjustments, with Ivo's comments in mind, or submit your work on your Google task page, as is.

Please let us know your plans. Thank you very much for your contributions to the Joomla! community.

Amy :)
