What languages would you like DKC Atlas to support?

Postby Qyzbud » November 3rd, 2009, 2:28 pm

(Sorry about the size of that poll! I'm working on a way to make polls less obtrusive...)

Now that the Atlas has successfully migrated to its new server, I'm looking for ways to improve our services for all users. One feature which has been suggested to me in the past is the support for multiple languages on our forum, which I think is a nice idea to make things a bit easier for those of us who speak a language other than English. I've worked out how to add languages, and have installed support for Español (Spanish), which I know is a popular language among DKC Atlas users... you're welcome, Kiddy14. ;-D

Now that I know how to add support for other languages, I thought I'd also create a poll to see which languages users would most like to have available... so be sure to vote for any language(s) you would like to use with DKC Atlas, and I will install language packs accordingly. Comments are welcome below, as always. =-)

Note: Language packs do not translate user-written content. Only the forum's menus, labels and navigation links, etc. are translated. Most languages include language-specific button graphics, too.
Another note: I've left Spanish and UK English on the poll because I'm curious how popular they both really are... I would have put Australian English on the list, but there's no language pack available for it (see here)... maybe we could make custom ones - pirate, bumpkin, etc... ;)

lol =P

Well, in my opinion the most common languages (Spanish, French, Italian, German, Portuguese, Japanese, etc.) are top priority in the list... My question would be, will it be applied to the site too? =D

I'd say Kiddy's suggestion works, go with the most common languages, and if any one that isn't on that list is suggested multiple times, add that one.

In addition to British English and Spanish, I have provided support for seven more languages:

  • Dutch - casual (Nederlands - Informeel)
  • English (United States)
  • French (Français)
  • German - casual (Deutsch - Du)‎
  • Italian (Italiano)
  • Japanese (日本語)
  • Portuguese - Brazil (Português - Brasil)

Language choice can be selected from the Board preferences menu.

This is something I would like to do at some stage, but I can't make any promises. ;)

I voted for Croatian, but I'm satisfied with English. I really don't like to talk about games in Croatian. :ugeek:

Voted all. We can slowly make progress on those languages (doesn't have to be instant). It would be cool to have 45 different languages though, but it is my opinion. You guys don't have to do all 45 (I just though it'd be nice).
