From South Afrika, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovenia or Turkey?
If you're from one of the countries listed in the subject, you might have
noticed that Rockbox' translation to your language is very poor. Less than
a third of the strings used in the interface have been translated from
English, so I can imagine using the translation isn't very helpful.
Additionally, the Icelandic, Galician (Galego) and Walliser German
(Wallisertitsch) translations are also fairly poor.
You can help fix this by fixing up the translation - it's not as hard as
it sounds, but it will take a lot of time. The easiest way to do it is to
go to my site http://rasher.dk/rockbox/translate/, click your language and
follow the directions. Alternatively, you can follow the instructions on
http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/LangFiles (which might easier
in the long when so much work is required, since you can't really pause
halfway through translating with the web interface without simply leaving
the browser open).
After that, submit the file to Flyspray (http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/)
and your translation will be updated if no issues arise.
Of course if your language doesn't have a translation, this goes for you
And now a quick rundown of the current translation status (in percent of
Afrikaans 11.69% <==
Bulgarian 19.62% <==
Galician 57.53% <==
Icelandic 59.95% <==
Romanian 22.45% <==
Slovenian 28.49% <==
Turkish 15.86% <==
Walliser-German 52.96% <==
