[Closed] Poll: Usage of Dutch translation for IDE

<< < (2/10) > >>

As I can remember from WinXP onward there is a display setting which is different from the regional setting.

See below.

So using the regional setting is definitely the wrong setting to use (for Windows XP though to Windows 10). The regional settings are only to be used for currency, date format and news location. Not for language.

Aside: I believe I posted about the same problems rvk had and even filed a bug against it, which subsequently got massively ignored on purpose by dev's:
Lazarus makes/made assumptions based on the wrong locale. (I didn't check for some time) Which is a pain. >:D

But on topic: a Dutch translation of the IDE is imho a waste of time. Most users I know have the IDE firmly in English.
I do not even know of one that actually uses Dutch, except by accident after installation, that is.
And because it is also - in places - silly Dutch with contrived Dutchifications most would like to turn English on anyway. And google translate wasn't even used! (probably did a better job)

The current translation is good to have a laugh, then turn it off.... :D ;) O:-)

I wouldn't mind to see it go. So my vote is NO.

Maybe the language itself would be useful:

--- Code: Pascal  [+][-]window.onload = function(){var x1 = document.getElementById("main_content_section"); if (x1) { var x = document.getElementsByClassName("geshi");for (var i = 0; i < x.length; i++) { x[i].style.maxHeight='none'; x[i].style.height = Math.min(x[i].clientHeight+15,306)+'px'; x[i].style.resize = "vertical";}};} ---{$mode fpc}{$macro on}{$define voor := for}{$define tot := to}{$define schrijf := write}{$define gebruikt := uses}{$define einde := end}{$define programma := program}{$define doe := do}{$define heel := integer}programma mooi;Gebruikt crt;var i : heel;Begin  voor i := 0 tot 9 doe    schrijf(i);Einde.

Hi Bart,

I might be able to help out, if you don't mind waiting a few weeks. Currently my agenda won't allow it, but as soon as this project is finished I am willing to make some time to help you with the translation. I do translations quit regularly for work (course materials), but I am a novice when it comes to Lazarus. So I don't know if I would be a help or a bother. On the other hand, I almost never use Dutch language files for any software. It just feels weird to me to use Dutch on a computer.

Grx HdV

That's what Bart would like to know: are you actually going to USE it? What's your vote?

For me also a NO.
