Dothraki Facebook
« on: March 22, 2012, 02:13:43 am »
New community project! :D

This will put a lot of your Facebook text from English into Dothraki (once it is translated). It works by just pasting over the stuff using Javascript, and not by using an API or the Facebook translators bench. In essence, this is much quicker, easier, and glitchy. This script is also being developed for the Na'vi community (as well as for other, real language communities, actually, but I'm not connected to those).
==================================================================
The File

Dothraki Facebook

I did not create this. Neskie Manuel did originally, and then Kevin Scannell pointed it out on a list I follow, and I downloaded Neskie's old code. I wish I could take credit, but I can't. However, I do hope to improve the code if I can. I did do most of the Na'vi translations, but that doesn't really matter here, does it? :P

This thing is super-beta. It's very iffy in places, and it doesn't work for everything. BUT it works for some things, and I think we can get the rest going, I hope. What's important is that if you know JS, get in touch. I am going to keep all of the code in the dedicated github, along with the Na'vi stuff. PM me if you want push/pull access. If you don't know JS, but know Dothraki: post translations below, or join the Git if you want to post them directly.

If you download and use it, let me know! Post here. Please. It'll be good to know how many people are actually using this thing.

==================================================================
Installation Directions

(Directions lifted from here)

So far this only works on computers where you can download and install a little Greasemonkey file. It won't work on mobiles etc.

1. Make sure your Facebook account's language is set to "English (UK)". (To check, go to the down arrow in the top right hand corner, then "Account Settings" and then "Language")

2. What Internet Browser do you use? So far, I only know how to make this work on Firefox and Google Chrome. If you don't have these browsers, then you can download them very quickly and easily here.  If/when you have Google Chrome, you can go straight to Step 3.

If you use Firefox for your Internet browser, then go here and install the "add-on". Then go to Step 3.

3. Follow the link above and click "install" in the top right hand corner. You might need to close the browser and re-open it, but basically that's all there is to it. Your FB should now have whatever Dothraki translations we've done.

=================================================================
Current Translations (May not be as up-to-date as the code itself)

Green is for words which have been translated and (should) work.
Red is for English words to translate.
And orange is for words that don't currently work with the script, either because they aren't grabbed, or because they break something.

This is just to say that I've re-evaluated the amount of time I have for this. I won't be able to help translation (largely because I don't know the language), but I'll keep it on my github in case anyone wants to help out, or if anyone wants to fork it and host it themselves.

Ya, this does feel like a project that would take a lot of time and effort especially since it would require a lot of imaginative inventing rather than just adding extant translations.

Well, the cool thing is that not all of these have to be translated at once. If you have ten minutes, have fun, and eventually we'll get there. That's the approach we're taking with Na'vi, and it's working so far. Just give what time you have. Numbers, for instance, should go fairly quick. Like, ideally, this project isn't huge at all. I use the Na'vi one already, even though half of it works and half of it doesn't.

OK. Some of the very easiest ones:


Unsorted
No = Vos
Yes = Sek
Maybe = Ishish
Female = Chiori
Male = Mahrazh
Tomorrow = Silokh
Today = Asshekh
Yesterday = Oskikh
Where? = Finne?
Children: = Yalli
Birthday: = Asshekhqoyi
Help = Rhellaya
More = Alikh
About = Qisi
Wall = Gref

Now = Ajjin

Sidebar
and = ma
and = ma
MORE = ALIKH

Map page
Country = Rhaesh
City = Vaes

About page
Men = Mahrazhi
Women = Chiorisi
Men and women = Mahrazhi ma Chiorisi
Birthday = Asshekhqoyi
Languages = Lekhi

Family
Wife = Chiorikem
Husband = Mahrazhkem
Neice[sic.] = Janise
Nephew = Siera
Grandmother = Kristasof
Grandfather = Simonof
Family = Rhojosor
Brother = Gaezo
Sister = Inavva
Father = Ave
Mother = Mai

Event page
By  = Ki
Maybe = Ishish
When = Affin
Where = Finne


I don't even use Facebook, so I might be getting the context wrong, but those should be such no-brainers that most should work. I tried to avoid even such simple questions as whether to use yer or shafka, or whether to use verb infinites or informal imperatives or something else.

Thanks, Qvaak!

Well, it certainly works.  :D Now we just need to keep populating it. There's some stuff we can do down the line, like make it work on some of the forms and the sidebar, but that involves actually, you know, coding, and I haven't been able to get to that myself yet. Anyone else is welcome too, of course.

Keep them coming! The more we get, the more we can use it.

Hahh! And immediately I start second-guessing. In that context I believe the standard long form Ma mahrazhi ma chiorisi [of capitalization I have no opinion] would work much better than Mahrazhi ma chiorisi. "I'm interested in 'mahrazhi ma chiorisi'" sounds more like "I'm interested in this men+women thing" rather than "I'm interested in both men and women".

That happens. Well, keep the code coming if you wish, these already work. :D
