Na'vi navigation voice
« on: September 02, 2016, 04:51:37 pm »
As I mentioned here I'm trying to make a Na'vi-language guidance voice for TomTom navigation devices.

I have translated all sentences, except for the distances (pending the discussion ;)) Corrections are welcome!

I'll record these sentences next week and pack them into a voice that you can actually use (I've done this before, so it should work fine :)) Does anyone else have a TomTom device here?  :)

IMHO quite good translations!

Some nitpicks:
- in the first four sentences I'd probably change  (Take the second left) Yak si ne muvea fya'o aftär to Yak si nìftär ne muvea fya'o . But as it is it looks correct enough. Nìftär is just first what pops in my mind when I read English version
- in (Ahead, keep left) Ye'rìn, yak si nì'it nìftär and similar I'd use Ye'rìn, makto nìftär
- (You have reached your destination) Ngal tok ngeyä tìkanit -> Tìkan awawno or Tìkanit wolo. Or something like that.
- (Keep left) Yak si nì'it nìftär -> as above: makto nìftär
- ( Leave the motorway) Hum ta fya'o apxa -> can be also Txìng fya'ot(i) apxa
- (Turn around when possible) Txo tsunslu, tätxaw -> Should be Krra tsunslu, tätxaw
Oe lu skxawng skxakep. Slä oe nerume mi.
