Is there any effort to release Language pack for 3.1.x?

by hamasaki_takeshi » Thu Jan 08, 2015 1:59 pm

I'm working on translation for 3.1.x . Is there any effort elsewhere? If so, I want to collaborate within.
A few days ago I applied to be language pack contributor.

I'm not sure those who privided language pack for 3.0.x are working on 3.1.x.
I'm newbie on this site and not allowed to send direct PM to them yet.

Hajimemashite, hamasaki_takeshi sama.
I'm ocean=Yohsuke, the official author of language pack of Japanese.

To tell the truth, I have already finished translating ver. 3.1.2 entirely into Japanese and uploaded the translated at Github.
Honestly speaking, I'm hesitating whether I should submit my Japanese language pack to phpBB Limited or not. I'm hesitating even whether I should keep translating or not.

I have two reasons to hesitate.
First, the name of phpBB-community-group, which is displayed by default at the bottom on every page of all the forums using phpBB, was altered from "phpBB Group" to "phpBB Limited" on ver. 3.1.x. If this alteration means that the primary activity purpose which phpBB-community-group conceives was altered from doing volunteer to doing a kind of business, I'm sorry to say that there is no reason for me to cooperate anymore.
Second, though this is merely my personal problem, now I don't have much interest in PHP than I used to be. The same holds for phpBB.

If you would like to be the official author of Japanese language pack in order to keep translating new versions of phpBB into Japanese, I would hand off the baton to you with pleasure (although normally long ago I should have been demoted from the post of official author).
You can utilize my Japanese language pack, which is at Github, for your translation if you want (I don't want to cooperate a kind of business though, as long as it helps others I have no reluctance for my work to be utilized by some volunteers like you.)

Ocean=Yohsuke sama, Konnichiwa.

Thank you for your reply and sharing the URL of japanese translation.
It is great honor to receive the baton from you if I'm approved as a Translator.

According to about page phpBB Limited haven't stopped to provide phpBB
as open source software. If they stop to do so, neither I don't want to contribute.

At a glance, phpBB Limited is doing some kind of business, too offering advertisement on their site.
For me, it is OK.

I'm just able to guess the reason of the changes of credit lines seeing what other open source software did.
Linux and Debian also changed their holder of IP(intellectual properties) including copyright to guard from 3rd parties who want to get easy cash through legal law suit.

(I could not read much about actual reason from changes of credit lines in this commit pushed in May 2014 to the repository.)

Hajimemashite, I'm running a site written in Japanese. I've been searching information on the latest Japanese translation pack and stumbled upon this topic. So relieved to find this!

Could I use the translation on github by ocean=Yosuke san, for my forum?
Or should I wait for hamasaki_takeshi san's translation?

Any reply would be greatly appreciated.

I have already handed off the baton, the official author of Japanese language pack, to hamasaki_takeshi-sama. However, hamasaki_takeshi-sama's translation might not be available for a while.

I think that any craft created with work(s) of volunteer, such as my translation and MODs, should be available only for people who never have any certain intention to bother or injure someone, deceive ordinary people, or earn money with excessive commercialism. I hope my works will be used only by people who have even a little bit of intention to help others.
Though, feel free to use that; I have no reluctance for you, a mannerly person.

Thank you for your reply, ocean=Yohsuke sama.

I understand your feelings. My site is for talking about baumukuchen and our activity partly leads to charity for the Eastern Japan earthquake in 2011. Please be assured, goanshin-kudasai.

I sometimes visited your Japanese site when it was available and it helped me a lot.

Thank you again.

Hello all,
I’m Takefumi, using phpBB 3.2.2.

Here might not be an appropriate topic though, I’m trying to update the old version of Japanese language pack for my forum.
However, I’m not familiar with programming aspect, app.php and cli.php, the new attached files are hard to translate for me.

Are there any volunteers to help with it here?

Besides, I would like to provide a language pack of my update Version based on 3.0.5 when my translation is finished.

Hi Takefumi,

While I don't know Japanese, my wife does, and I also would like to have a Japanese language forum on my site once I get it running. I will take a look at app.php and cli.php and see if we can figure out a translation. Are those the only two files you need help with?

Hi ErikatKam4i-san,

Sorry I didn’t check this thread long time.

Still I have stuck on translation for cli.php, but app.php was finished.
I’ve found another file, migrator.php is hard to translate.

I will finished the whole of translation except mentioned two files in this month.

Slow work but the goal is almost there.

If you would like to contact me, please email to tk6904@2-1b.com .
My posts are still very few, so I can’t use private message option.

Thank you,
Takefumi Tenshima
