The Norwegian site

  • funkdoctor Top 10 Forum Poster Sunday, May 24, 2015 8:23 PM Reply
    Hi, just passing through and noticed the banner for the new norwegian and finnish sites. Pretty certain it said norwegian and Finnish, anyhow.

    So I clicked on it, and entered the Norwegian site. And soon left.

    A quick look showed that even simple words, such as black, were left untranslated. Yet looking for raspberry pi stuff brought a translation to the world renound bringebær pi. Though I'm pretty certain that a raspberry pi goes under the name of raspberry Pi in both english speaking countries and norway.

    It was difficult to read in this format and seems like a very half assed attempt. entering the site on DX.com again then prompted a toolbar adamant that I wanted the whole thing in norwegian once more.

    Anyhow, I'm sure it's great that you're trying to cater for what I can imagine to be a fairly small percentage of a country of only 5 million people who can't use english proficiently enough to navigate their way through this site in its original format. So kudos for that at least!

    Thanks for the message, I checked Finnish too and the translation is strange. I can understand that product titles & descriptions must be machine translated BUT I'd expect high quality translations for category names and other strings which are same throughout whole site. But they aren't, unfortunately... Also I can see truncated strings which are quite annoying.

    Not satisfied with the "Finnish" site...

    I thought that one was supposed to end on a positive? ;)

    I finally managed to watch Trollhunter recently. Quite nice, even in French with English subtitles. I picked up a few swear words that weren't translated.

    You should drop in more often, funkdoctor.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.
    The multi-language on our site is automatically translated by translation software. At present we are short of hands to revise and correct.
    Please give us some time. Thanks.
    I'll have my maternity leave from next week(my baby will be born in a mo
    nth), and I may be back to office a
    round mid-December.
    If you have anything to query, please contact Maye_Tao.
    Thank you. :)

    Unless I'm missing something, and theres a good chance I am. But it seems a pointless job for you to do it IMO, olli. fairly large and time consuming task to do it without going back end and sorting it out there.

    You could spend your time, a lot of time going through all their amatuerish work, give them human translations of words, someone is going to have to duplicate the work on their side. Where would that end? I can't see it being cost effective.

    The thing that I was surprised with most was that they have had a few years to sort out the ESP/PT sides of this that rolling it out to other languages should have been fairly straight forward. It would have been the reason to do it. The work done and the lessons learned would have shown. vladlennin hinted that the earlier alternative languages sites are poor, and it shows in these new sites.

    It just looks cheap and tbh, not far away from one of those sites that look just that little bit too dodgy for you to part with your cash.

    It's noble of you to offer your services, olli. Just know your worth.
