My six year old enjoys saying "Merry whatever" this Christmas season. Sounds kind of grumpy, but also cute.

He claims to have picked it up from some cartoon, I haven't seen it.

Anyway, I liked this expression a lot myself :) So, Merry Whatever!

EDIT: A kind person sent me a PM telling it was probably the Grinch:

Looks like that, yeah.

Import a csv-file with translations into Tatoeba?


There are a lot of sentences, which only differ in a first name (e.g. Tom, Jim, Sami). So I exchanged these names to check if there is a translation in the tatoeba database with another first name. (I do this in a local database which only contains the English and German sentences.)

Example:
The sentence "Tom hasn't come home yet." has no German translation, but there is a sentence "Jim hasn't come home yet." with the translation
"Jakob ist noch nicht nach Hause gekommen."
I read this, replaced e.g. "Jakob" by "Tom" and then you have the translation of
"Tom hasn't come home yet." = "Tom ist noch nicht nach Hause gekommen."

With this method I created about 880 new (Eng-Ger) translations. These are stored in a cvs-file (as UTF-8). Finally I have manually checked all these sentences in then cvs-file so there are ready to import. (It is possible that some of the sentences have already been translated in the meantime.)

How or who can import this csv-file to Tatoeba? As a normal contributer I can't do this but I read there is a way. It would be a lot of work to do this manually.
My user id is 73763.

To elaborate:

Indeed, there is a way to mass-import sentences:

https://en.wiki.tatoeba.org/art...ort-sentences#

I believe that Ricardo meant that you could send a private message to Guybrush88 to ask him to do it for you. Alternatively, you can send me a private message.

Hier als Ankündigung, ich habe eine weitere Liste mit 2000 Übersetungen Eng nach Deu erstellt. Dieses Mal habe ich den Vornamen durch sein Subjekt-Pronomen ersetzt (Tom - he, Mary - she) und die passende äquivalente Übersetzung in der Tatoeba-DB gesucht.
Auch diesmal gilt, alle englischen Sätze sind Sätze, die bereits in Tatoeba existieren und keine deu. Übersetzung hatten (zu dem Zeitpunkt, als die Liste erstellt wurde), nur die deutschen Sätze sind neu, wenn sie noch nicht irgendwo anders als Übersetzung anderer Sprachen mal zugefügt wurden.

Bug...

English --> Turkish

I searched for "couldn't help crying" (including the quotes) and there was one result. I searched again with "couldn't help *ing" (including the quotes), and I got no results.

Remove the quotes around the wildcard.

That's not how it used to work. Without the quotes, the order of the words/pattern is not guaranteed.

I notice that this query (including the quotes) finds a result:

"couldn't help cry*"

However, it's not the search you wanted to perform. I did a web search (with terms like "sphinx wildcard quotes not working") to see whether anyone else has any insight on this, but didn't find anything relevant. @gillux, do you have any comment?

When you say "before", what range of time are you talking about? @gillux or @TRANG, when's the last time the search engine or configuration changed?

@AlanF_US, I don't remember the range of time when this used to work, but I know I have searched (and needed to) this way before (with quotes). Do you guys log search requests? If so you should be able to see similar searches I have made in the past.

I notice that a search like "Tom is *ing" (within quotes) only yields sentences where "is" and the ing-word are exactly one word apart.
It finds "Tom is very hardworking" "Tom is just trolling", even "Tom is drawing something" (because there's a second "ing"), but not "Tom is sleeping".

The documentation has the following example:
"Tom * * Mary * John"
This example finds sentences that have "Tom", then 2 words, then "Mary", then 1 word, and then "John."

This works only with quotes. Without quotes any number of words (including zero) can be between Tom and Mary.
So it seems wildcards are treated differently within quotes, and the issue is sort of an unwanted side-effect.

I sometimes have this problem too, nothing is found;
if the "normale" search didn't find something try the "extended" search

Yes there is some issue with the search engine. I disabled it for now. It's unclear what caused the crash and I'm not sure when we can restore the feature. Looking into it.

The search is back! Sorry for the inconvenience.

The website crashed because too many sentences have been updated within a too short period of time. This caused an overload of work for our search engine and as a result, the random sentence selection (which relies on the search engine) was taking way much more time than it should. Since the random sentence is a feature of the homepage, which is the most visited page, everything went downhill.

We should be good now.

Is anyone else experiencing problems on Tatoeba? I mean, I'm not able to post sentences, it takes forever to load the home page and also the "Randon sentence" is not in there. Is this an ongoing upgrade?
