Glheþinaziun d'ar friul noveu Update: The infrastructure for the glheþinaziun is now in place (see this post)



(yes, "friul" is not the right word but I couldn't resist using it... for some reason :P)

Right, so azul, estimats amíci Ladintschen. As I mentioned in the feature list, this new forum potentially allows for multiple interface languages to be installed. This clearly means there's room for a custom Talossan translation of the whole interface, if it's a project that people would be interested in.

(I'm also doing my code tweaks in a language-neutral way, so for example the "Latest 59" button should also be translatable by just editing the string file)

Re: Marcel c'è nünc El Duceu Thanks, Marcial. I think your PDF contains a good compromise for a "Provisional Standard" which is "good enough for Government work", as the saying goes.

But it is very crucial that we don't confuse the short term for the long term. We need a CÚG replacement that will do proper language research of the kind Epic suggests. We also need a Standard Talossan right now. The two are not in conflict. In fact, I hope that by establishing a standard that some speakers might not like, you guys will be motivated to organise SIGN properly, do the research, and create a better standard.

I look forward to Epic, Marcel, Iac and others (with my contribution, of course) setting up the rules by which SIGN will operate. Making rules of authority and of decision-making that will allow us to create Arestadâs or whatever in the way that CÚG used to; and carrying out the research that Epic talks about that make sure we make good ones.

In the meantime, I say that Marcel's proposal is good enough for right now.

Re: Suggested Talossan name for Spencer K.
I don't know, it looks to me like /l/ > [ð] / V_V was just a misinterpretation on Hool's part that somehow managed to get into talossan.com unnoticed.

Can I suggest - as a "rule of thumb" - that where KR1's materials and post-2005 CÚG materials differ (on matters other than orthography) KR1's materials should be preferred?

On the subject of pronunciation I have no idea whether the CÚG were in the habit of actually speaking the language and thus would be able to see whether certain pronunciations were "practical".

Re: SIGN rules Yes, they drew criticism at the time for requiring more people than were willing to learn the language. I'm not under the illusion that that'll be adopted, but I do think there are some quality concepts buried in it.

Re: SIGN rules I have now made a Google document for creating a corpus and I NEED THE HELP OF ALL THE SIGN MEMBERS PRESENT OR FUTURE! If you want access to the Google Document, please drop me a line, and I will provide you with a link!

Re: Wittmeister's Feature List Ok done, we now have a shoutbox (which is really just a Discord embed). Further customisation will come in the next few days.

Re: Glheþinaziun d'ar friul noveu (Will add the link to the top post as well btw)

Alright, me and Marcel have kicked things off. There is now a Github repository for the translation which you can access at https://github.com/badinl/glhetg-witt. (Note that I am fully aware that the translation might not begin until that provisional standard thing is settled)

How do I contribute?
Simple:

1) Sign up for a free Github account, or use your own if you already have one

2) Ping me somewhere so I can add you as a collaborator (otherwise I will have to manually approve your contributions)

3) Head to the repository and start contributing! Select a file, hit "Edit" and begin translating the strings like so:
Code: [Select]
$txt['admin_boards'] = 'Boards';becomes
Code: [Select]
$txt['admin_boards'] = 'Scumparts';(or whatever the correct translation and pluralisation is)

4) When everything is translated, I will add the translation to the forum and it will become fully usable.

Re: SIGN rules I officially apply for SIGN membership. When are we going to have a website where the Official Rules are displayed? Or at least a TalossaWiki page?
