Translation system

http://translate.uservoice.com allows anyone to contribute to adding translations or improving existing translations, with absolutely no coding knowledge necessary. This system is in beta – how can we improve it so it’s easier for you to translate our product?

How can we improve our translation site?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Show context for words/phrases on translate.uservoice.com

    When translating words/phrases on the translation portal, you don't have context for where those words/phrases will be used.

    This can result in wrong translations. For example, a word like "comment" could be translated different ways depending on how it's used in a sentence.

    • Ability to disable translations

      If the app or web-app doesn't support some languages, it will be interesting to disable them. Since support will just not be good enough, plus, it is a way of discouraging users of posting ideas and comments in their own language.

      • Error in date text in comments (Korean)

        As in screen shot 'Month' in Korean appears '월월'.
        Correct translation is '월' but I can't find where to in 'translate.google.com'.

        Also Timezone appears JST when change account language setting to Korean. It should be KST.

        Hope this help.
        Thanks.

        • Please add Armenian translation/localization

          My website is in English and Armenian. It is not released yet. If you add Armenian language my Armenian users also would be able to leave a feedback.

            • Errors in spanish version

              The spanish version has next wrong details:

              1) the click on "Todos los artículos" in column Knowledge base leads to the page with header "All artículos". I think it should be header "Todos los artículos" on the page.

              2) in the contact form window when the user clicks on the most popular question there is opening window with english link on the top - "open new window". I am pretty sure it should be nice to translate it in spanish. http://gyazo.com/64d685b84af19d0297213c8108351165

                • Create a page with a name of the localizers, per language

                  It'd be great to give some credit to people who already did a big contribution.

                        • Add Thai to translate.uservoice.com

                          Customers who speak Thai (or who's users speak Thai) would like the option to translate our tool into Thai.

                            The translations for Portuguese are not formal. Could you create a translation file for formal Portuguese?

                            • Provide better context information / Live Edit

                              First of all: We love uservoice (we use it ourselves) plus we really think that your translation center is a great idea. However, when browsing the admin panel (e.g. in German) we find a lot of translations that simply don't match their meaning.

                              We built https://phraseapp.com, a service that provides real context information for translations by allowing a live edit right on the site.

                              We would be glad if we could integrate our software with your translation center for you, to improve the translation process for uservoice even further and assist your translating user base with their great job!

                                The translation into Dutch is not good. I keep adding correct translations in the tool, but they are not implemented. Let admins choose their own texts and the problem is solved.

                                • Guidelines??

                                  If many people work on a translation, there should be some general guidelines. Those will greatly improve the quality. Topics to cover are:

                                  * Some languages have a formal and informal translation for "you" (french, dutch). Which one to use? Is looks very clumsy if they are mixed (which is happening right now).

                                  * Translations for application specific concepts should be standardized. For example, the translation of "sign in", "case", "ticket" etcetera should be used consistently throughout the translation.

                                  And I guess, 5-10 more. But I'm not a professional translator.

                                  • Easy switch between languages for feedback site

                                    For admin console I can switch between languages easily.
                                    https://domain.uservoice.com/admin/dashboard?lang=de
                                    https://domain.uservoice.com/admin/dashboard?lang=fr

                                    Would be very nice to have the same for feedback site,
                                    http://domain.uservoice.com/forums/11-general?lang=ru
                                    http://domain.uservoice.com/forums/11-general?lang=en

                                    This way it will be possible to redirect people to forum depending on the language they use.

                                    • Using Crowdin.net for Uservoice translations?

                                      Would you accept translations if I'll initiate translation project of Uservoice in Crowdin.net?
                                      Where do I get language files to setup new project?

                                        • Enable partially translated languages

                                          I see some translations done for russian languages. However, russian language is generally not available (probably because it is not fully translated yet).
                                          There are 486 untranslated and 147 reviewed.
                                          I would highly appreciate if I could use already available 147 translations for russian language and the rest to be english.
