Hi guys,

i've searched the forum for threads, but all i found was specific language support for achievements etc.
Is there any possibility of implementing site languages ? I can imagine that this is probably a lot of work to code or even translate.

Sites like Google can provide some machine translations on the fly, but with a site as jargon-heavy as TA, those will likely fail frequently. Adding true language support is an enormous undertaking and there would likely need to be a significant player base to encourage that.

I was thinking about that. So i thought the community would even help to translate. But it is fine with me, i just asked for someone who was interested in registering, but unfortunately his English skills aren't that good enough.

I have to admit that sometimes i need some dictionarys to understand the jargon here laugh

I recommend at least asking for a specific language support. TA can't make a decision to add the support unless they know which languages are in the most demand. The site has a lot of folks who provide volunteer support and certainly main pages could be added by those volunteers with language skills so that core functionality would be up.

Getting the forums going would be almost impossible, but maybe the rest would be enough?

I was thinking something similar but for solutions and walkthroughs only (at least to start). Something like small flags representing the available languages for that specific solution/walkthrough so it changes to that language when you click on it (kinda like the sales articles).

I thought this could be implemented like porting walkthroughs so you can pick the top solution and translate it but the credit for the solution is for the original owner.

At least probably the menu could be translated or the feed. I don't know how many German players are here, or which of the ethnic minorities are active here, who wish to read the page in their own mother language, but yeah if the site owners really think about that, i would happily be a volunteer translator for German language.

Yeah that'd be great! We could also translate the news articles and stuff like that. I'd volunteer to translate whatever is needed to Spanish (Mexico).
