Re: Regional languages and Spanish (Latin America) translationsby
From Venezuela we want to offer some help for this translation. We are in a process of bringing together as much people as we can around odoo development, so it's a good oportunity to contribute in this project. So, count on us.
We'll wait for more detailed instructions.
Hello, As it was already announced a few months ago, we will not publish anymore the regional languages (e.g. fr_BE, de_CH, es_PY,...) on Transifex. The main reasons are that the behaviour is usually unclear/unknown (as a reminder, these languages uses the translations of the reference languages, it should only contains the differences) and the changes of plan on Transifex forces to remove some languages. Moreover, having everyone translating all over again Odoo in it's regional language is a waste of efforts and don't usually lead to a better translation quality. This does not mean that we no longer support regional languages in Odoo. For these few terms different from the reference language, we will now ask you to submit these terms using github. I will try to publish a guide on how to do so in the following weeks. We will however accept a few exceptions to this as the Portuguese from Brazil that differs a lot. The Spanish from Latin America is also a language we would like to add due to the big demand. This language Spanish Latin America (es_419) however was never present on Transifex so the progress would start at 0%. To avoid wasting the existing translations from es_CO, es_EC, es_DO,... our plan was to use one of them as the base for this new translations. Our question today is which one should we use? Is there a translation that you know has a higher quality or is closer to the "standard" Latin America Spanish (even if I am aware it is not always clear)? (and try to be neutral with your own language please ;-)) Is it better to start from scratch? Please let me know your thoughts.
