M_PLAYER in german: hilfe !

Post by Moulinaie »

Hello,

I'm translating M_PLAYER to german and I need help. Here is a part of my work:
mpl1.png


The hardest is the main interface:
mpl2.png

as this is not text but images. You can see that there is no room for long words, can some of you suggest me how to translate those six menu entries?

vielen Dank !

Guillaume.

Lol yes German has some very long words and sentences.

load and play a video - Laden Sie ein Video und spielen Sie es ab (google)
short - Video laden und abspielen
shorter - Laden und abspielen

How is the word disassemble used in here? Is convert (konvertieren) enough?
Build from images - erstellen

Capture the screen - Bildschirmaufnahme

Set options & paths - Einstellungen

Find videos on disk - Videos suchen

Thanks for your help !

Disassemble in this case means to put the video in parts: you can save the images individually and the sound.

I'd be glad with it. German is my naive language but I prefer english in tools for our old machines, as german is sometimes "cumbersome" ("sperrig") there. No FullHD and therefore not enouph space to display all these barbarian words and sentences :)
On the other side of the screen, it all looks so easy.

That's what I was afraid of when I started translating to german.
Well... dialog after dialog, it appears that the words fit into the original place.

Perhaps "Zerlegen" would be a nice german word that describes that job. :D

Hi!

More than half of the interface is translated now I think...
I have a problem with this box that I want to remain "little", so I need some short words:
mpl1.png
Context: one image of an animation is displayed and you can:
(S)ave: save it as a TGA single file
(A)ll : save all without confirm for each
(R)un : means fast forwards advancing without saving
(Q)uit to quit...
(Spc) space bar for next image without saving

Any idea?

Guillaume.

Hi again,

Thanks to both of you, here is what can fit in the box:


mpl1.png


M_PLAYER is automatically configured with what appears in brackets, so in german the active keys are S, A, L, E and Space bar.

Great! But for the last sentence at the bottom line I'd suggest
"Taste Control um alle zu stoppen & starten Modus"
-or, if it doesn't fit-
"Control um alle zu stoppen & starten Modus"

EDIT:
"Control: Modus alle stoppen & starten"

"Los" is more an imperative (but shorter) meaning of "Start!" or "Begin!". You don't use it normally as a single word, but everyone understands the meaning.
On the other side of the screen, it all looks so easy.

So, I modified the dialog:

Is it okay ?

...IMHO if I would see and read this for the very first time I'd understand and what to do next.

Isn't Germany one of the greatest Atari community (in terms on number of users) ?
I think it used to be true in the past, but is it always true nowdays?

I don't know whether Germany had THE greatest community, but at least one of. There are still many active (more or less) Atari users here, as in UK, US and eastern europe/russia too. Impossible to count, but I'm watching, buying and helping here and there with Atari based projects and hell, yes, there's still something going on!
Highly remarkable after my 40 years with Atari computers (my father bought our first one (A400) in 1981 when I was a pre-teen). Yikes! Anniversary!

Hi all,

On my page, you'll find M_PLAYER 4.10.

I fixed a bug in the drag and drop (more generally, there was a bug when M_PLAYER was lauched with a command line, the anim was opened in "Convert" mode instead of "Load and play").

I added a partial germand RSC file : M_PLAYER.001 with the common dialogs translated, there's still a lot of work to do, particularly with the alert boxes.

Re: M_PLAYER in german DONE !!! RSC available.

Hi,

I took some chocolate and finally translated the whole ressource file to German.
Well... It's "google-german" for a large part ! You can load and try it, I will be happy to improve it !
