Title: Arabic translation in progress on Transifex
Post by: sherif on February 12, 2017, 12:13:59 am
Example:
English : We would love to let you peek at Who's Online, but unfortunately right now it's disabled.
Key : who_off
so I read then translate then do the shortening
Arabic : DISABLED (in Arabic of course)
what a waste of time and effort !! looks like the developers were in a good mode
:P

My arabic is a little bit rusty or otherwise, I may be able to help translate arabic as well.

So how do you right the above in arabic? Does this sounds right?

You can also sneak a peek over at http://download.simplemachines.org/?smflanguages;lang=arabic

Not sure what the license is though.

I was actually joking , ranting against these long phrases that take longer time to deal with it , while it could be shorter , making it easier for translators :)

@ahrasis thank you for offering your help , but you are already doing great job with developing and translating to Malay, i will let you know for sure if help is needed .
as for the Arabic translation of that phrase  , yours are very close , but could use some improving :)

@Frenzie thanks , I already did before, many parts of it look like translating a book for geeks , not for forum users , but honestly it is a good source

lol

That was... Norv's faul I think, the idea was to be a bit less formal and have a more casual approach.
