The next release candidate is online, I added a form to request languages, added the iframe for keeping the session alive while the user is on the page, set the session timeout to 30 minutes (before 2 hours), added DuckDuckGo sites to the welcome page!

Hey,

I decided for now against adding this language to the project, cause we talk about a test right now, and i dont want that you have the feeling that this is going live what you translate! Please just use some other language on the project and put in the french or swedish terms, just to test if the workflow is fine and that everything works like you expected. Especially i'm interested that the people use utf8 chars or general special chars from their language, so that we can see if this all works fine!

I add those 2 languages for the live system, then you can directly translate it into those languages when its on! We head to start the live platform tomorrow when today the tests were good and people say its fine to translate with this interface!

Thanks in advance to all testers!!! Please really test this system and try to make it crash! ;)

Right now its there to translate, like I said in the post. And right now its about testing this, and not (again) have the discussion about where this is heading to. Thanks

Hello community,

It's finally there, the platform has arrived! With the primary target of translating DuckDuckGo into all languages, we want to start the beta test of our community platform with the people on the forum and the people who asked us via email to translate DuckDuckGo.

This Beta is independent of the live platform and will stay even after the launch for people to test problems or play around with the platform without touching their live account. You can test the beta under:

https://view.dukgo.com/

You should create an account and get started translating :). No explanation should be required.... we hope :)

If you have suggestions about design, layout, HTML or CSS, please post them publicly in here for discussion. Other issues you may post here, use our feedback form on the platform or give them on our github issue tracker, if you have a github account (link on the feedback form).

If you want to give us new languages, it would be nice if you give us:
Name in English => German in Germany
Name in local language => Deutsch in Deutschland
And a link that shows the flag of the country (and hope that we have it in our database, alternative flags would be appreciated)

Even IF you think your language exists just in one version, it is REQUIRED that you add a country definition, otherwise we can't get a clean locale definition. If you actually know your locale definition (like de_DE) it would be nice if you add it to your request.

Best do this over the feedback form on the platform!


Fast feedback is appreciated :).

Right now, our (sometimes out of the sudden) wizard prepared us something and we think we will go with this!

The first purpose is the translation of DuckDuckGo itself and all sites. We can of course make for every "account driven" thing we make another portal, and give you the option to have several logins for everything, but I felt like unifing this to one portal is just nicer for the user :-). Thats why its bound to the already existing @dukgo.com XMPP/Jabber server. You can later also use the same login/password for your settings on duckduckgo.com itself, and you can even patch your own settings manager, cause all of this is opensource :-)

And of course the community is something new, we talk about a complete new sideshow here, community driven. I just prefer to see where the project can go instead of fixture it to the stuff we defined at some point. Community driven is the future in my eyes, would be sad if we drop this to create just specific subsites fo specific purposes. "Patch it" - is the call.

And yes, it looks awful right now 8-), noone with one spice of good look touched it so far! :-D Thats why I make this call here, it is of course not easy to make a design for something that still is growing, but... lets try :-).
