Bingo, das ist genau das Volk, für das ich mir die Übersetzungsmühe mache! Da kann man wirklich keine Fremdsprachenkenntnisse erwarten. Prost!

Genau! Woher kennst du uns so gut?

Gibt's dann auch "Oberhessisch"?

Prost aus dem Herzen der Natur nach Köln! :lol:

Wenn du es willst, wird es so sein. Du musst es aber selber machen. Mein Ziel ist die Komplettversorgung des Planeten, also darf ich selbst abwegigste Dialekte nicht ausschließen.

Einen gälischen XYplorer würde ich glatt einsetzen. Die Leute gucken immer so schön doof.

I'ld be glad to contribute to the French translation. For those wondering why it's interesting for the users as for Don to translate this applications, the answer is simple :
at first even for the english-speaking users, it's always more easy and comfortable to use a soft in our natural language, then lot more users will adopt this soft among the non english-speaking peoples because it's translated in their languages, so Don will get more money for himself and as motivation to continue developing this great everyday used tool with the same attention paid to his users needs and wishes.

By the way, I also use my first post in this forum to thank all the peoples who have contributed to the XY project and of course my warmest thankful thoughts go to the main developer Donald Lessau. :)

I don't know any french, except maybe Bonjour!! Welcome to forum!
Its amazing that XY will be spoken in many languages soon. It was bound to happen someday and definitely Don will profit from this.
By the way, Don is the ONLY developer on XY, which is hard to believe but is true.
That being said his development is often faster than 2-3 devs combined, no offense to other devs elsewhere but this is true from my 5 yrs of experience. I think many would agree.

While languages will be awesome, the support and help would be harder to handle, if you ask me something in french it will be hard to understand leave alone answer you, :). And hopefully, we english speakers won't miss out on interesting stuff happening in other language specific forums.
Thinking out loud as i answer this, is there a forum where one can translate on the fly?

Thank you, and thanks for your offer!

Maybe not finished setup yet? Got a "Not authorized to read" when attempting to view it.
Still spending WAY TOO much time here! But it's such a pleasure helping XY be a treasure!

Same here. Maybe it detects that we are english speakers?
Sorry, had to say this. :lol:

Don is the ONLY developer on XY, which is hard to believe but is true
A manager went to the master programmer and showed him the requirements document for a new application. The manager asked the master: ``How long will it take to design this system if I assign five programmers to it?''
``It will take one year,'' said the master promptly.
``But we need this system immediately or even sooner! How long will it take if I assign ten programmers to it?''
The master programmer frowned. ``In that case, it will take two years.''
``And what if I assign a hundred programmers to it?''
The master programmer shrugged. ``Then the design will never be completed,'' he said.

The Tao of Programming, Geoffrey James, 1986
:wink:

But as you've said, it's difficult to believe that he did it all alone. More than just respectuous, knowing that fact makes me even more admirative.

I've used Google Toolbar's Translate page function to read some of the German comments posted here...not perfect but gives basic concepts at least.

I hope the Multilingual Support will be mostly about translations and such, because a user who needs help may thus never get it from us who are English-only if they post there.
