So... how about having a Chinese section...
« on: July 29, 2011, 08:44:41 am »
I have an idea to translate omnimaga news... And I did some several months ago. Sometimes I gave the link to omnimaga to others. Sometimes I translated. Sometimes I just copy and paste the news and add a Chinese title.

Another idea is a [translate section]. Really hope articles on ti-bank can be translated... ;)

I don't really understand what you want. A Mandarin section? I don't think there are enough Mandarin speaking members for that, but if in a poll you found out that a lot of people actually speak Mandarin here (which I doubt).

If you want to translate Omnimaga News to Chinese, you can already do that. Translate them and then comment the translated text in the topic ;)

If you want something else, please tell us, we'll then think about it and see if it can be arranged or not.

I think it's just him, deep, me, mrmprogram(?), and a few others.  My English is better than my Chinese anyway though.  :P

Sorry, I only speak a very small amount of Mandarin. I wish I knew more though, it is a very useful language. Something like this may help me learn more though.

@ephan, I have trouble reading traditional though.  ;). That might be another problem for a chinese board.

One problem is that some browsers might stop rendering Omnimaga properly on some computers without chinese characters installed. I guess if there's enough demand there could be a survey and stuff, and maybe it could be added. We got lots of Chinese members, although most usually know English better.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I don't think we should support many more languages.  We'll clutter up new posts and such with stuff people won't be able to read.

Personally I don't think there's enough demand for a Chinese section, as most of the members that would potentially post there would use English as their primary language anyway.

我不是中国人,可是我会说一点儿中文。
I don't know much, but I'm learning! :P
Still, a chinese section would be cool.

Seconded. I don't want Omnimaga to become a place where there is a subforum for each language. I think English should be the main language and we'll keep French and German.

^ Plus there's that issue with rendering, as DJ pointed out. I think we all speak English pretty well, but

sounds like a great idea. Is there an app a mod for that?

I can speak Mandarin and read traditional pretty well, but I don't think it's necessary. We have too many language boards as it is.

As I've said before, I think it's unnecessary.
