There is an interesting little option on Cloudflare to translate LN pages into other languages by choosing the language from a box at the bottom of the page.  I have this turned on as a test, but can't tell if this is breaking things for our non-english-speaking friends.  Can I get some feedback as to whether this is working, or has it confused everything?  Thanks!  -Markì

This is an interesting option considering the SMF Language Options. Maybe this solves the issue of the majority of forums / post contents being in English, where SMF options page only translates the interface. I think it's a good idea but may make for some hilarious weirdness when some information from posts may get lost in translation. Particularly between languages of unrelated families. That's just how Google Translate rolls ;D

Well, as with every translation programme, the longer and complicated the texts, the more confusing it gets. ;)

It works for German for the most part, i.e. you get the meaning but sometimes the choice of words is a bit off.

Przetłumaczyłem stron na Polski. Wygląda dość dobrze. Ciekawe czy moja odpowiedź zostanie przetłumaczona na angielski podczas odpowiadania.

I translated page to polish. Looks good. I wonder, can it translate my post back to english.

And FAIL. It's only one way translating. Replies wasn't translated.

of course it works, but results can be hard to understand or even funny. Tested on several my posts - all was quite fine, but generally translation to Czech is very often not grammatically correct (blame complexity of Czech language).
I found one funny result: when sending new post, Send button (in Czech: Odeslat or Poslat) was shown as "Psa poslat" (Send the Dog). Interesting, formerly messages were send with help of pigeons, not dogs...

This apparently could break our translation system there, HRH.

It's actually disappointing as almost nothing is translated funnily.

I guess I need to take Norm's advice and start using big words ;)

Edit: I noticed that button down there a few days ago, but didn't mess with it. I tried a couple alternate languages I know enough words in to be dangerous. Pretty interesting.....

I'm not sure I like this. The main problem to me is that it also tries to translate Na'vi phrases, and messes them up  ::) That could be confusing as people may think that is correct Na'vi ...

Yeah that's definitely not good for the Na'vi language related boards. It is probably fine in all other boards
