Making translators busier Feb 25, 2011

And non-English translators will be busier translating those words to their own languages, if they happen to meet those words while doing their jobs. Will they be able to translate them?

Where are the translations? :) Feb 28, 2011

What I noticed above was just "(de) scareware" in the French text and "(El) scareware" in the Spanish one.icon_biggrin.gif

Try to translate all those words into Russian, Ukrainian or Chinese insteadicon_eek.gif .

Will that be "No problem!" too?icon_wink.gif

Transliteration Mar 9, 2011

In Thai, careless translators transliterate new words. I feel that their social responsibility are not sufficient.
