That was most probably me... It is the only word for "drives"; however maybe "recorridos" does sound better. I would be against the use of "Rutas" since we are already using it for the routes given to users, and may cause some confusion if used here.

I agree, it would be nice to test while we translate. I had hoped we have option to install a test version so that we can upload the translated strings there and see how it looks. :(

No it's not because at a certain point one starts looking at the strings and wondering where they exactly come from and how much space is available, hence why it would be nice to test them on the website before finishing the translation - it's a beta site anyway, and the language is not imposed to anyone.

In other words, there are 10 types of people in the world - the ones that looks at a string and tries to translate them without context and then shit happens days later when the translation arrives at the destination, and the ones that look at the client (website) and try hard to understand the context and space available and consistency and translates accordingly. On the client and TTS I can translate locally, on the other ones I can't, so it's a lot of guessing work.

I hope I don't need to be the first kind before I can even test anything.

What I had understood was that for the WME we could not have "branches". That is, there will only be one english, one portuguese, and one spanish.


Ok so I'll stop my time on the ptPT translation until this gets sorted out and I'm able (or not) to test the strings on the beta editor.

That's what I heard too, anyway, for some particular languages, say Chinese, there are Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese. They seem to be "Chinese", but the terminology is quite different. I believe PT got the same situation.

There is no such option for me. Do you have Czech language there, orbitc?


I don't see it...
