[ALPHA] Auto-translate Vana'diel

Post by RebirthSephiroth » Wed Feb 17, 2010 2:37 am

Auto-translate Vana'diel

MOD-Title: Auto-translate Vana'diel
MOD-Version: 0.1.0
MOD-Author: RebirthSephiroth (Zeno)

MOD-Description: This mod is inspired by the auto-translate feature in FFXI (Final Fantasy XI) and FFXIV (Final Fantasy XIV) and intends to perform the same functionality (and more). It allows users to pick (from a pre-determined list) a phrase/word to use in a post. So a user posts something like "Nice to meet you!" and it will show up in the other supported languages as that phrase in the language under the user who is reading the post. It will be accurately translated because it was preselected from a list as opposed to being machine translated by something like Google Translate, which does not translate Japanese that well. So if someone posts "Nice to meet you!" in English, and a Japanese user reads that post it will appear in Japanese to that user. The problem with between say English and Japanese is that machine translations barely help. This MOD allows the user to select phrases from a list which will ensure accurate communication between languages.

Demo: http://zeno.biyg.org/ff14/
Also uses MSSTI Quick Language

Screenshots:

English user selected phrase from autocomplete

Japanese user viewing English users topic

phpBB-Version: 3.0.x
phpBB-Languages: English, Japanese
phpBB-Styles: proSilver

Download:
(do not attempt unless you know what you are doing)
- Apply this context output diff (Pastebin) which was done on version 3.0.6
- Import this MySQL table with 2000 phrases using something like phpmyadmin
- Download JQuery & autocomplete plugin and place in /styles/prosilver/template
Recommended add-ons:
- MSSTI Quick Language
- Adding topic icons to represent topic language such as ja and en
- Japanese language pack

Changelog:
02/16/2011 Version 0.1.0: Initial alpha release

Current features:
- BBCode style translate format
- Database stored translation phrase list
- Ignores invalid auto-translate phrases
- White text on blackground style to represent auto-translated phrase
- English and Japanese language support
- AJAX autocomplete textbox
- 2000 pre-installed phrases ("Good bye", "Hello", etc) [from FFXI]

Planned features:
- Better looking style for phrases and option to disable style for phrases
- Add/Remove/Edit auto-translate phrases in ACP
- French and German language support

Known bugs:
- Interferes with censor feature
- Translated topic titles insert HTML into title
- Does not translate in sigs, preview sig, topic review and view your own posts (for now)

Notes:
I would also like to include Spanish and I can make it supported, but unless I get help from a Spanish speaking member I won't be including any pre-installed Spanish phrases (which means the pre-installed phrases will not show up in Spanish). I'm not sure if it'll cause performance issues on highly active forums.

I've come across another MOD with a similar name (Auto translate), so I've renamed this MOD to Auto-translate Vana'diel.

I have also allowed Guest posting on the demo.

A great idea to develop this for forums. I created an Auto-Translate BBcode a few years ago and made these for it, perhaps you could use them.

Image and Image

And just for the heck of it, here's the actual BBcode too.

BBcode Usage:

Code: Select all

[AT]{TEXT}[/AT]
HTML replacement:

Code: Select all

Thanks, I would like to use something like that. I'd have to figure out topic titles and stuff though, as images don't show up there.

Think I should use a font more close to FFXI's font for auto-translate text?

I'm still a bit concerned about the efficiency of my code, so I don't have a date yet.

If you're interested in starting, here is the list I'm starting off with:
