Czy ty mówisz po polsku? Looking for a Polish translator

#1 Post by Jerry3904 » Sun Dec 07, 2014 2:25 pm

We welcome translators who can work in any language, of course; this appeal is in response to the great interest in MX-14.4 in Poland, see this post.

We would like to have at least the first two applications that any MX Linux user sees available in the local language. Here are the percentages for Polish and Russian:

bootloader -- produces the opening screen from the downloaded ISO, allows things like language selection, time, etc.

Polish: 42%

installer -- enables the user to make a hard disk install

Polish: 79%


If interested, please post here, or send a PM to Adrian or me. Thanks very much!

You could always try an online translator--people are just living with the English strings, but something in their native tongue that's a hilarious mistranslation is much more likely to get a response.

You can try asking at the Forum Linuxiarzy (http://linuxiarze.pl/forum/index.php#c4). It has a very small Mepis, antiX, MX subforum.
Filling the registration form is probably difficult, even with Google translate.

I am very pleased to announce that we now have most of the MX applications translated into Polish, thanks to the efforts of a volunteer who is a Linux user himself.

With all the new users in Poland, it is terrific that we can provide these things in their own language.
