What's New on Tatoeba? - Your weekly (+1 day) recap °6


UPDATES

※ The implementation of the new design continues, this time with the addition of the "Add to list" functionality. Thanks to TRANG for her work.

※ Improved the way to add languages on the profile page. The addition of a new language has been made more dynamic and it should now be easier to use and understand. Thanks to Ricardo14 for reporting the issue and gillux for the improvement.

※ The terms of use are now displayed in the selected interface language if their translation is available. This is part of a more global improvement on how we deal with Transifex. Thanks to gillux for his work.

※ Fixed an error occurring when checking "Owned by a self-identified native" for English sentences. Thanks to CK and others who reported the issue and gillux for fixing it.


ON THE WALL

※ CK gave some stats and links to search sentences https://tatoeba.org/fra/wall/show_message/34292

※ sharptoothed gave use his usual Stats & Graphs :) https://tatoeba.org/fra/wall/show_message/34300

※ Ricardo14 gave an updated feedback about the translations on Transifex, the tool we use to translate Tatoeba interface. https://tatoeba.org/fra/wall/show_message/34306

Indeed. That's because I used the raw difference between the two files, which is not the same as the number of added sentences. Thank you for pointing it out. I will correct it for the future recap.

*User Interface (UI) Translation: A "thank you", updates and invitation*

Hi there, everyone! How are you doing? Hope you're doing? Hope you're doing great.
It rained a lot here in Rio (too much, actually. Many streets got flooded, many people had to wait like 10 hours to be able to come back home, etc. Sorry for my delay)

Updates:

Some new languages has been added to Transifex (the platform we use to translate the UI from English into another languages):

= Luxembourgish - https://www.transifex.com/tatoe...e/language/lb/

= Central Dusun (Kadazandusun) - https://www.transifex.com/tatoe.../language/dtp/

= Kirundi - https://www.transifex.com/tatoe...e/language/rn/

= Gronings - https://www.transifex.com/tatoe.../language/gos/

= Klingon - https://www.transifex.com/tatoe.../language/tlh/

= Berber - https://www.transifex.com/tatoe.../language/ber/

= Chinese (Hakka) - https://www.transifex.com/tatoe.../language/hak/

= Interlingue - https://www.transifex.com/tatoe...e/language/ie/

= Norwegian Bokmål - https://www.transifex.com/tatoe...e/language/nb/

and

= Persian = https://www.transifex.com/tatoe...e/language/fa/

For now, most of them won't be at the drop-down menu (available to be used) until it gets about 70% translated. You can get all status here - https://www.transifex.com/tatoe...ite/dashboard/

► Thank you!

Thanks for everyone who already joint the project and help us A LOT by translating and proofreading. It means a lot.

New members who have joined us last days

fathe - Romanian
Dusun_Les - Dusun, Malay, Hakka Chinese
MarijnKp = Dutch, Gronings, Icelandic, Norwegian
Jepang = Indonesian
Eunhee = Korean
Amastan = Berber, French and Arabic
small_snow = Japanese

► Invitation

Everyone is welcome to join us. Everyone.
We're able to use Tatoeba in multiple languages because people (us) made it possible.

You should create an account on Transifex - https://www.transifex.com/ and PM me - https://tatoeba.org/eng/private...ite/Ricardo14. Also, visit the Tatoeba Project on Transifex - https://www.transifex.com/tatoe...ite/dashboard/ and choose the team(s) you'd like to join once you have set up your account.

You have to keep in mind that you should do that in your free time and feel like doing so. It's a way to promote your language, to improve your skills but please, never feel pressured to do so. We need more languages here, we need more languages but "no stress" ;)

» What if my language is not supported? It's not listed on https://www.transifex.com/tatoe...ite/dashboard/ ? Am I forbidden to contribute?

You can contribute! We just need to add the language you want to contribute in the platform or even request it to Transifex as we did for Gronings, for example.
In this case

1 - PM me - https://tatoeba.org/eng/private...ite/Ricardo14 . Tell me the language(s) you want to help us to translate into
2 - Create an account on Transifex - https://www.transifex.com/
3 - Just wait for updates. I'll let you know once it's available and so, you can start contributing.

That's it. Sorry for the long post. Please, do not hesitate to ask me anything. :)

We (should) have this error for English only. The bug was reported 5 days ago:
https://github.com/Tatoeba/tatoeba2/issues/2166

We're working on a fix.

gillux gillux March 2, 2020 at 12:36 PM March 2, 2020 at 12:36 PM link permalink

The problem should be solved now. Thanks for reporting it to us!

*User Script Requests*

I was browsing the Tatoeba Wiki and I found this page - https://en.wiki.tatoeba.org/art...cript-requests .

I'd like to know how can any of us ask a script. Thank you!

** Searching for Sentences Including Beverages (Drinks) **

I noticed that someone was tagging sentences with the word "beverage."

Note that it's fairly easy to find such sentences using the advanced search with the "or" operator and a list of drink names. Drink names with spaces need to be quoted. I also did not include the single word "water" since this would get too many results unrelated to beverages.



►► Here is an advanced search that will give you many English sentences with beverages.

► Query:
liquor|brandy|ale|absinthe|daiquiri|margarita|sangria|wine|tea|soda|smoothie|milkshake|milk|lemonade|juice|coffee|espresso|cappuccino|cocoa|grog|cola|beer|whiskey|bourbon|tequila|rum|cocktail|cider|martini|vodka|gin|"white russian"|"bloody mary"|"tom collins"|"hot chocolate"|"piña colada"|"soft drink"|"soda water"|"black cow"|"mint julep"|"egg nog"|"tonic water"|"mineral water"



►► All these searches will produce results limited to the 4,000+ sentences on my List 907.

► Random order:

https://tatoeba.org/eng/sentenc...m&trans_to=und

► Shortest first:

https://tatoeba.org/eng/sentenc...s&trans_to=und

► Longest first:

https://tatoeba.org/eng/sentenc...rt_reverse=yes



►► Or, further limit to just the little over 3,000 sentences with audio

► Newest first:

https://tatoeba.org/eng/sentenc...s&trans_to=und

► Random order:

https://tatoeba.org/eng/sentenc...s&trans_to=und

Tämä taitaa toimia lähinnä englanninkielisiin lauseisiin. Tunnistetta voi soveltaa muihinkin kieliin.

**Five new projects (languages) which have no translations**

I've asked Trang to add some specific languages to Tatoeba UI. That said, they have no translations (yet) [[February 22nd, 2020 6:40 a.m. BRT (GMT-3)]}

- Interlingue
- Klingon
- Lithuanian (Lithuania) (lt_LT)
- Norwegian Bokmål
- Persian

If you speak any of these languages and you feel like translating strings from English in any of these languages, please let me know!

» https://tatoeba.org/eng/private...rite/Ricardo14

You'll have to create an account on Transifex and ask to join the respective "team" (teams)

What's New on Tatoeba? - Your weekly recap °5


UPDATES

※ Correct red warning icon position so it doesn't overlap with the copy icon. Thanks to gillux for reporting and Aiji for the correction.

※ Added an arrow on the side of sort criteria to indicate in what order sentences are displayed. This is the first step to a bigger redesign of the sort criteria. Expect more in the future :) Thanks to AlanF_US for reporting and AndiPersti for the implementation.

※ Following last week update about cleaning Unicode characters, sentences are now normalized in a better way. Sentences already in the corpus were also normalized. Thanks to CK and TRANG for noticing the problem and AndiPersti (on GitHub) for the fix.

※ Improved Pinyin transcriptions. Thanks to Yorwba for his work.

※ Improved the flow between Transifex and the dev website. Following the huge contributions in translating the U.I. the last few weeks, thank you all for that, some problems have been taken care of. Thanks to small_snow, Aiji, TRANG, AndiPersti, and gillux for their contribution at some point (if I forgot someone, my apologies!)
