Help with Translations

Hi,

A few month ago I launched a bike route planning site: https://bikeroll.net After posting it on bikeforums (https://www.bikeforums.net/general-cy...-planning.html) I received a lot of useful feedback and improved the site a lot.

Some days ago, the multi-language feature was introduced and now I am looking for bikers who can help me to translate the site to more languages - at this point only German, English, Hungarian, and Romanian are supported. Fortunately, the site does not contain too much text, there are less than 450 words to be translated.

So, if you speak a language different from the above and you can help me with the translation of ~450 words, please contact me on Bikeforums: https://www.bikeforums.net/members/bboti-441038.html, Email: bikeroll@bikeroll.net, bocsiboti@gmail.com, or Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bikeroll.net/

Many Thanks

Cannot help, I'm living in English dominated USA.. but that did not stop me from traveling to countries I did not know the local language..

And that was way before all this smart phone dependent, website making, era .. I use paper maps and compass ..

Invariably found someone , conversed in English with them..

Traveled Solo, sent the occasional post card/ letter/ mailed Parcel to my Parent's house.



Dont Over think pre planning.. just pack up your bike and gear and Go.

I even bought round trip tickets but did not use the return , bought another RT from where I Left, cost difference is negligible.

How is this even remotely helpful to what the OP is asking?

Aren't there automatic translation features you can activate? For example, some of my friends on Facebook speak (and type) in a different language. If there's a part of it I'm not sure about, I click the automatic 'translate this' link.


And what is the deal with the large white block covering half the map?

Agree partly. I could do the Dutch translation, but a Dutchman who doesn't speak enough English to navigate the site should stay safely in his hamlet where his inbred family will make sure he won't die alone. For Spanish, French and Italian it is different, but I wouldn't bother about Danes, Swedes, Norvegians, Fins and Swiss either.

You can always use that automatic translation, but personally I do not like it. To Hungarian many time it sounds ridiculous. Furthermore, the Google search engine likes properly translated sites, thus, it will show it for more users.

I guess it is on the bottom. It should be an elevation profile. If you gave permission to access you location, a random route around your area will be shown (if it is possible). Otherwise if you create your route, its elevation profile will be shown there.

I agree that not Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, ... should not be my first priorities. Unfortunately, so far I got translators mostly for these languages (Dutch and Swedish).

I totally agree that Spanish, French, and Italian would be the most important. I am waiting if someone can help with them
