French and German help required!

Hi, I was thinking about finally getting crackin' about that french and german version of my site, but everytime I postpone it as my french and german is not very good, but I cannot imagine a better way of practicing a language then by setting up a weppage in those languages.

Anyway I would need help in translating internet words into these languages that I would not find in dictionaries like; thumbnail, download, update, link, homepage, file, compressed archive, kbyte (I know it is something like koctets in french and so on, could you please just overwhelm me with these words and their english translation, (or hungarian, either way works

Well, thanx a lot in advance!

i don't know a whole lot (i'm not a computer person in english, let alone in french), but these are the ones i'm (pretty much) sure of:

download -- verb in infinitive form=telecharger
a download, as a noun=telechargement
update -- verb in infinitive form= mettre a jour
file -- fichier

yea, i think it's best to trust someone who knows what he/she is talking about rather than me, lol

These sound familiar, cuz I lived in Belgium for four years and I had a french Windows for a short time, so thanx again for helping, and don't worry I'm sure it's better to trust you with this than myself.

German? Anyone?

French! Let's take a look...

thumbnail -- WHAT EXACTLY is a thumbnail?? Lol I see that word everywhere and still don't get it!
link -- lien (noun) or lier (infinitive verb)
homepage -- page d'accueil
compressed archive -- fichier zippé/compressé
kbyte -- Koctet that's it (kilo octet or just Ko)

citadelle's right about the rest

Well, if you need something else...

No, aperçu is preview as far as I know, but I could use it on thumbnail. It is basically the same.

I would gladly keep a portugese version up as well of my site, but as I don't speak a word of portugese I would need you to translate all the updates continuously. Or at least up until I get used to the language and can update by myself. ;-)

│ From this very day the xy page is available in portugese as well!

well, ehh, you want me to translate the newest news only and the ones after that? Or this month and the ones after?

its better if ya post the text here you really need.
You want me to translate the other pages too?

Ok, as a test, ill start from the latest news(18 may 2004):

'Mithis Games apresentam um trailer do Jupiter Incident para o E3. Agora que a exposição acabou, o trailer esta disponível online.'

Quote:
There's one text that is for sure needed and it goes:
From this very day the xy page is available in portugese as well!
'De agora em diante a página do "xy"* esta disponível em português também!'

NOTE: I dunno if any of the content have any official translated names here, so im letting it as the original source (english). And the translation is for Brazil portuguese ofcourse.

*xy??

Its fun to practice this

Thank you, I will try to post the news here. I don't think that we would need to bother with old news. Let's just stick to the new ones. I will try to post them here and from tomottow, I will add them to the site. The ones you've already done are perfect. The structure I need now is:

"The Codename: PanzersE3 screenshots are available on Gamer’s Hell’s appropriate site"
"New Road to Fame screenshots were added to the game’s official site."

and also: May

French!: What is upload?
German: Anything would be appreciated.

I opened the French and German site, they are full of grammatical mistakes. I will try to refine them backwards and in the future too. If you help me, it would go faster! Much appreciated!

Oh and stuff like: date, news, homepage, music, programs, links, archive, upload, download, thumbnail and so on... and also something like that you are helping with the keeping up of the portugese version. Or brazilian

Sorry: I forgot about editing the posts. I will try not doing it again!

Yeah, and MBN and all sites available from MBN enjoy an automatic permission of uploading the files to their respective sites. A link to mine would be appretiated too, and if you want, I could put one up on mine as well, just send me the addresses

Well, that's got to suck! Sorry about that! Well, take your time, there's no rush. When you have free time and you feel like doing it, you can start all over. I'm pretty sure up until then these four languages will be enough! I'm ready to go any time!

I mean, almost any time.

Thanx a lot, as soon as I'll be needing something. It will be up here! You can expect the first Spanish version up any day now!

BTW: xy means something substitutable

PS.: I still need something that says that the Portugese version is presented with your aid.

How would you say: "Clevers Software Development is offerenig jobs for developers interested in the creation of a First Person Shooter. For details see the GameStar site!"

"Roy R. (aka SGK) presents the newest feature in Gergerlys website: the portuguese version!"

"Roy R. (aka SGK) apresenta o mais novo recurso do Gergelys webiste: a versão em português!"



EDIT: btw, i think that the links in the news in ur website should appear underlined cos someone who reads it dont know theres a link there

Yes, U R not the first 1 pointing that out, maybe I should consider doing so. Only it looks really messed up cuz more than half of one inscription would be underlined. That's why I wrote it everywhere on thas yellow marquee. But maybe U R right, I should do so. Will be considered!
