Using Bablefish
http://babelfish.altavista.com

was able to make rudimentary pages in French German and Spanish

See the links here
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/PuppyLinuxMainPage

and if you speak these language (the translations are no doubt only the gist) or would like to add another . . .

- hey Puppy goes International . . .

Smile
Puppy Power!

Wink
looks more like babel than like babelfish.

I'm a native german speeker and understand more in the english version.

I go, and have a look on that in my very few spare time.

edit: This is hard work: I have to stop serveral times to dry my eyes and to take breath. Babelfish seems to be a great fun Very Happy

Another question to that: (because I'm not a programmer):
How will this help to get puppy itselv german (or any other language).

I'm thinking to get my mom puppy, but like to have all puppy (inkluding applications) in german.

I agree, mclien, I definitely want my mother to use Puppy, she is a 70 something, very skilled web surfer, e-mail composer, IM and office tools user from argentina, and she won't go to heaven unless she quits using XP and joins the Puppy community.

Lobster, I'm available from now to translate to spanish as many Puppy aspects been possible to be translated. I don't know what translation plans the development team is considering, but I want to get involved on that.

Would anybody tell me where to find out about that matter?

Thank you.

Hi Lobster,

it's not Espanole, it's Espaol Smile

(I tried to modify that in the home page, but obviously I haven't had access).

eh you are our language development team . . . well for Spanish - though I believe others have also been kindly working on this?

As you have registered as a wiki user you have access to the menu

- Language support and any threads you can find or can be suggested might be of help

Good luck
Cool

Yes, someone has done (a good work with) the first page, I'm working on the FAQs.

Please have a look at the attached image, wiki doesn't allow me to edit the main page.

Embarassed

OK I see what has happened - only two registered users were able to edit the front page - my mistake thanks for pointing it out

Considerable effort has gone into making the front page

    Simple
    Displayable without scrolling
    Comprehensive


That is why it was locked to only two editors . . .

So minor edits are OK but think carefully before making more radical changes

I think it is OK now - post again if not
Hope it is working for you
Great to see our Spanish pages increasing Smile

Yes, it's fine now. No worries, I won't change anything in the front page, except that "espagnuolo" for the right one Smile.

I sent you a private message, about a previous topic, to avoid extending this thread, have you seen it?

It's not about the help pages, but the actual Puppy software in a non-english language. Is there anything going on about that?

Do not know Confused

The language support link on the wiki front page is all I know.
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/LanguageSupport

People translate or work on other language support and if I come across it - I stick it in the language support but I speak english (just about) so it is not of that much concern to me. Puppy was always geared towards being in English.

Those interested in other languages will need to organise and co-ordinate. Perhaps leave a comment for others to contact you (comments can be left on each page - or on the page in a variety of languages . . .

Not sure how best to advise you . . .
Maybe others can help?

I had a look at the link Lobster had provided but that doen't seem to be what I was looking for.

I wanted to know if something is being done to have Puppy Linux translated into other languages. I know that has a lot, if not only, to do with the individual applications (Sylpheed, etc.).
My interest about that, comes from two main reasons:

1 - Having Puppy translated into Spanish.
2 - What'd be the point of translating Puppy's Wiki pages into spanish if the actual Puppy couldn't work in spanish?

I don't mean only locales, because being able to type , or or to see those typos while reading something won't be enough, what I meant is: the whole of Puppy translated into other languages (spanish in my case).

I'm interested in joining any effort (or to start it if necessary) in order to make Puppy Linux fully i18n.

Any comments, references, advices, discouragements, etc., please?

Thanks.

Not everyone shares the same interests - to find those interested in what you propose and organising is not easy.
You are already translating pages to Spanish. I would encourage that. We are spread quite thin. I would like to concentrate on development for Chinese and Eastern European languages and Japanese but I would also like to do loads of other stuff. I suggest you go as far as you can and keep an eye on the languages page and PM those who are also translating (you will have to look at the old wiki). Sorry translation is not one of my priorities, despite the fact it is very beneficial to Puppy . . .

Maybe someone can offer you encouragement? Smile

Hi isn'tfunny.

A small idea that might work in translating to Spanish at least. Rather than starting over, so to speak, by translating Puppy from English to Spanish, why not get another distro that has already been translated into other languages, and cut out those items that Puppy doesn't have or use from the Spanish area, then modify the Spanish items to fit the Puppy equivalent. I think that Ubuntu and Knoppix would be good bets getting started. It would seem that this would cut the time required quite a bit.

I could pass around copies of Puppy that you have translated here in Costa Rica to friends and family for feedback if you like.

I would just have to know where to go to download the copy in Spanish.
