[payment in kind] Small amount of translation required

Looking to build a team or have a job to offer?

Post » Sat Dec 27, 2014 11:08 pm

Hello C2 community. I have a very small text-based app on Google Play with some requests for non-English versions.

I'd be interested if anyone could translate the text (400 words only, in sentences) into any popular language for me. This app is not a money maker so I can't justify paying Google, and I can only offer help in return on your project, or whatever I can do for you :)

It's simple, 'conversational' text in Q&A style.

Any of these (or others!) would be great. These are just the ones some people are commenting in.
Portugeuse, French, Italian, Spanish, German, Russian, Afrikaans, Vietnamese

Alternatively, I could online-translate them and you could just fix the silliest mistakes it makes :D

Please PM me.

Thanks in advance.

I know you said 'popular' and romanian is probably not, but if you are interested anyways, let me know!

Well I have about 16% of total downloads from 'others' so I'm sure Romanian is one of them :D

Others 1,428 15.84%

I wouldn't say no if you could find the time! I'm really interested to see how localizing affects downloads. I'll PM you soon.

Hello Codah

I'd like to help you to translate into Portuguese, considered one of the most spoken languages (usualy around 5th-7th place). However, it's European Portuguese, from Portugal, which represent the smallest amount of Portuguese speakers around the world.

The difference is very little (sometimes none) but depending on the text you wish to translate, it can still be relevant.

I can't PM you so I hope you contact me if you are interested.

Cheers
- John

Hi! Actually, Portuguese-speakers seem to be popular in my genre of app, so that would be great! I'm currently thinking about how to do the localization (mainly creating SpriteFonts in these languages!) but I'll send a PM with the text (it's not much.. you can see if it's appropriate for your dialect, if that's the right word) and my email address. Hopefully I can help you in the future :)
