Blynk Babylon project - making Blynk available for all the languages

Dear friends,

Blynk is used by makers from all over the world, you know that. We decided to help everyone understand Blynk better. There were a lot of requests for translating our apps to other languages.

We don’t have enough power to make it on our own, and that’s why we ask our amazing community.
We thought that if every Blynker translates ~20 words – we can make it happen.

Here is the doc. We used Google Translate to make initial translation, but…you know robots are not always the best. You know the subject, you tried Blynk, you are better than robots (yet)

https://docs.google.com/a/blynk.cc/spreadsheets/d/1A0Ngzc3M1QxBkBf-8kYGIRiPqP1cbdvNaZx_2igRT-c/edit?usp=sharing

Support us in making it accessible for people all over the world

P.S.
You can add new languages. Some instructions can be found on the Instructions Sheet

Thank you!

I’d be happy to contribute to this, but wouldn’t you guys also need translations of the documentation?

Polish translation added

@Pavel “GPS not inited” probably translates to “GPS not initiated” in English.

Columns have been created with Hungarian language, translation is under editing. (Partially done.)
If hungarian guys here please check ‘Hungarian Auto’ column and make a proposal or feel free to edit it in ‘Hungarian Edited’ column if you could offer a better expression.
Thank you!

Added Dutch columns, but so far translating by hand, much faster than auto stuff :slight_smile:

Ah, too much, anyway, maybe I should read instructions.

I’ve started working on Dutch, but maybe it’s an idea to add a column “remarks” or something because I see some potential context sensitive issues working with variables in the text. Also I would definitely like to see everything in context before it’s released so I don’t maken an ass out of myself, LOL.

More edit: In Dutch we have two translations for “your”, “you” etc. A polite one and a more common one. Which one would you prefer? The polite one is not used much, except by the government and when you talk to someone you don’t know or is much older than you.

@Pavel, may we should know the character limitations too, to avoid line breaks or any other inconveniences. I mean expressions could too long in some cases after translation. Would be useful to add one more column with maximum lenght limitation of expression for each text.
Thank you!

Korean translation in progress

WE AINT DOIN THIS FOR FREEEE

Italian translation added!!

Thanks for participating!

Looks like Polish is almost finished.

@hjroh0315 Easy!

Dutch is done. I’d like someone else to take a look at it, I’ve seen a couple Dutchies around so if you guys have time … lol.

I would like to see everything in context because I made some educated guesses and don’t want you guys to make a fool of yourself if I put in a little language error :wink:

Preliminary Italian Translationi is done!
Thanks to another Italian anonymous translator who helped me.

Mee to! :wink:

Hi!
Hungarian translation is kind of ready. I tried to guess the contexts in which the strings would be used,

(Great project! Keep on updating!)

I think the only way to see context is to release app with translations :slight_smile:.

That’s fine for me, but I like to know when it’s released asap so I can put in some time to check most of the translations and submit updates if I find anything :slight_smile:

Not very soon I think.

From my point of view at the moment there is no so many words for translating Blynk to our native languages. I think that i didn’t spent more than 2 hours. Paid plans (Blynk business solutions) are too expensive for me because I’m in the middle of prototyping phase so I’m planning to use free app at the beginning. Guys from Blynk give us chance to spend some time to translate app (with unicode characters support) and I hope that everybody will use that chance. Maybe some of you think that you do some very important job for Blynk. Don’t get me wrong, you don’t do that for Pavel, Dmitriy and rest of Blynk team, you do it for yourself, your family and maybe your future costumers.

P.S. Serbian translation is done. :slight_smile:
