Subject description: a word of praise for open-tran.eu
 

Perhaps all you translator-colleagues know about this one..If not, I cannot but share this beautiful project:

Open-tran

It really is a helpful tool, showing what other translators have come up with as translation of same word(s) and how common the translation is in the open source community.

From their website:

Quote:
Why Open-Tran.eu?

Proprietary software vendors may (if they can afford it) use CAT or TM software in order to ensure the consistency of their applications' terminology. Unfortunately, there are many different software vendors who are not willing to share their knowledge (which includes translation memory databases) with the others.

And this is where the open source software could prove to be better than the proprietary. It could, but is not. Although everybody has full access to the translations of many open source programs, this opportunity is hardly ever used. The knowledge of hundreds (if not thousands) of people translating applications into their native languages is not centralized and thus hardly available to the others. This is the reason why the translations of even the most popular programs are not consistent with each other, which discourages people from using them.

I'd like the Open-Tran.eu service to fill this gap and to provide the translators with a useful tool, which may improve the quality of their translations and increase the consistency of terminology in the open source software.


Give it a try, many many languages included!

Thank you, I have tried it Very Happy

One word I have always been too lazy to look up: legacy
Now I have found it is mostly superfluous in use like in

Legacy grub config.....

grub is a good old name
grub2 and grub4dos are others
Legacy grub is ....superfluous
I have simply cut it off in my translations IIRC.

The opposite of lecacy is something like new
The world is full of Newtowns, Neustadts, Neufvilles, novgorods.....

My regards and
Thank you again Bert Very Happy

Legacy spot (at the moment after being fido)

You can add local databases and online search.

Much appreciated you gave us that good suggestion
typical of my noobness I failed to translate from English to Swedish
it always gives the English word back as the best translation so
I must do something obviously wrong. No hurry you guys suggest things

I have no difficult text at the moment to translate Smile

so maybe send a PM to not derail this thread.

or test translating the word derail from English to Swedish
and lets see what comes up
