Multi language instructables

Hello, As a french user, there is a feature that I feel is lacking on the website: the possibility to translate an instructable to make it available for people who do not speak english. There have been a few times here where an Instructable was the perfect how-to to share with people in my local maker community, but most french people are not fluent in english. So I had to translate it for them. Furthermore, I would be happy to translate some useful instructables here and there when needed around me. But this work is not shared to the community of Instructables and makers that could benefit from it, only to a few people around me. Could there be a functionality on the website so that an instructable could be translated and made available in multiple languages ? I do not mean that everything should be translated in every language and all, but if someone translates something, then it can be made available to other people speaking that language. Well, I hope you consider it, My 2 cents, pol / littlevache

the International-English language guide (v0.4a)

International-English Grammary rules :Rule #1 : "-ize" versus "-ise" In International-English language, we don't speak American-English or British-English. So, we are free to choose whichever ending we want.However, it is recommended to adapt ourselves to our interlocutors. For instance, if you write to an American-English speaker, you'd rather prefer the -ise ending, and when you'll write to a British-English speaker, you'd rather prefer the -ize one.It's also possible to select -isze or -izse endings, and you're absolutely welcome to change all along your sentences.However, it is absolutely forbidden to improvizse excentrical endings such as -izzzz, iszsze, etc.Examples :I realize that we could recognise that he did not organizse this exercisze as expected. (correct)Yeah, I agree. It was a great surprizzszsze ! <------- bad ! very bad ! Don't !Same rule apply to words like civilizsation, coloniszation, etc.Rule #2 : "-our" versus "-or" The rule is almost the same than #1.The alternative International-English ending is : "-oor".On the other hand, the "-ur" ending is not an acceptable alternative !Examples :I love the couloor of yor eyes and the flavoor of yoor tongue ! (correct)Yeah, yur right ! <----- bad ! extremely bad !Rule #3 : "-re" versus "-er" Again, same as #1 and #2.Unfortunately, there is no International-English alternative ending.However, keep in mind that this rule only apply to words that have a different spelling in American-English than in British-English.When available, always prefer international spellings over american-english spellings : litre and metre instead of liter and meter Examples :As I was lost in the centre of this commercial center, I drunk three litre ... (correct)Three liter of what ? Of wine or of watre ? <---- bad ! very very bad ! never do that !I don't remember, so I guess it was not water. (correct)Rule #4 : conjugation :If you forget the -s or the -es at the third person, it do not really matter as long as the pronoun is present in your sentence.By default, every past form of verbs take a final -d or -ed, and it is acceptable to ignore irregular verbs.It is also acceptable to conjugate the verb after its auxiliary : I did not conjugated correctly.Examples : She don't understand because she's a girl ... (acceptable)Yeah, that's because girls have a smaller brain than men. (correct)(and true)Yes, you're right. I have readed that in a magazsine writed by eminent scientists. (acceptable)Rule #5 : plural forms :By default, plural form of words take a final -s, and it is acceptable to write the plural form of words like child and "man" with a final -s (childs, mans), instead of children and men.Also, if you accidentally add a final -s to children, it does not really matter ... as for men with a final -s, it's rather a women's problem that you should better avoid.Examples :I hate childs ... (acceptable)Why did you made childrens then ? (acceptable)Because I wanted to play Lego and Play-doh again ... (immature and stupid)International-English Dictionary and Vocabular :CColoorCoulorCouloorCoulournounSame as color and colour.This is a beautifull coulour, how did you made it ? - Thanks, I simply mixed them all.This afternoon, KillerJackalope cut Cameron just to show him his favoorite coulour.EExcentricaladjective1. strange or unusual, sometimes in an amusing way :He thinks he is an artist, but this guy is just totally excentrical !2. which is not in the centre : The axis of this wheel is excentrical !GGOTOverbTo go to somewhere without possible return.You'll GOTO hell !GOSUBverbTo go to somewhere with a possible return.You'll GOTO hell without even GOSUB purgatory !!GrammarynounSame as grammar, but ending with a y :Why this y ? - Because that's the International-English grammary !HHolyHollyHolllyadjrelated to a religion or a godthis holly book makes not sense at all ... it's all writted in Outdated-English language.Yeah, I agree. It would have maked more sense if it was an hollly manga ...HoolyHoollyHoolllynouna small evergreen tree with shiny sharp leaves and small round red fruitWhere did you go for your Hollydays ?I went to Hoolllyhood ...the holy place of the movies industry ?Nah ...

I don't even know how to spell it !UUnbannableadjectiveimpossible to ban ; that can't be banned :I can hardly believe that Nachomahma got banned from many site : he seems so unbannable !This guy is unbannable because he respects all the rules of the site.VVocabularnounSame as vocabulary, but without the ending y:Why not the y ? - Because it's the International-English vocabular !International-English pronounciation :As we all know :- most American-English speakers emit ducks and cats noises through their nose, and almost "vomit" some vowels- most British-English speakers emits vowels through their nose from the back of their throat, and consonants between their teeth without using their lips- most Australian-English speakers don't pronounce at all (they just make noises)So, you are free to pronounce your words with whatever accent you want. It's your right. After all, English is not your first language. You can be proud to know more than one language, and thus, it's your entire right to customise this second language with your natural accent.However, if, for the sake of compatibility, you absolutely want to imitate an accent, it is highly suggested to pick the Canadian-English pronunciation. They are the only ones to pronounce words like "about" and "house" correctly.For instance, they don't say : "abawt" and "hawse", they say "aboot" and "hooze".(c) all right reserved, aka chooseausername on instructables.comShiver irrrrrelevant Humens !Now that we have assimilated your tongue,You have therefore no secrets for us !

Feature request: multi-language versions of the same instructable

We miss out a multi-language feature in instructable. Some people creates copies of the same instructable in other language and other transalte each step of their instructables. It will be great, once you have entered an instructable in English, to add the same text and notes in other language. So when other person visit your instructable, he will be able to choose the languages. Also, someone that likes so much another author's instrutable could be able to translate it to other language...

What is the correct way to translate an instructable?

I am learning another language and thought it would be a good exercise to translate some of my instrucatables. How do I create an instructable in a second language? Do I have to start from the beginning and make the instructable all over again? Is there a way to copy it so all the steps and pictures are in place? Do I have to set up another account? I thought I read there was separate sites being made for different languages.  I just want to know what the proper way to do this is.  Ideally someone should be able to create an instructable and then have different languages associated with that instructable. Ie. Click a drop down list and Select a language if it is available for a particular instructable.

In my family, we say splazem instead of brain freeze. It's similar to the word spasm, but we added a couple of letters to it and made it a new term for a brain freeze. Recently, I looked it up. In addition to my things that I have done, I see it used in a different language. I have tried looking it up on a translator, but I get nothing.

A question on instructables....

I was wondering, an instructable can be how to do or learn pretty much anything, right ? It doesn't necessarily need to be about building something concrete? I was watching one of the videos I have a fondness for (because of my involvement with "the subject") and thought of something I might be able to put together for my first instructable, before my wife gets around to cleaning her junk away from my work area.

international characters for "Steps"

The rich editor 'comment box' and 'Instructables editor' is able to handle international characters, such as: é, ê, ç, ¿, ñ (possibly others), however the "Title this Step" in an Instructable does not reflect the same editing perimeters. Instead, displays "�" (displays as black diamond with white question mark). This also happens with the yellow description box overlays. This may be user error, but seems weird that I can see certain text in one field but not another. FF v3.6.12 ?? _mike

New proposed legislation to make English the official language of the United States.

There is new talks to make English the official language of United States. Although some states have made English their official language it is interesting to see that sometimes more than one language is recognized as official. I agree that English should be the official language of the nation. As a matter of fact is the de facto language of the land. The problem I see is people trying to push the law in areas where is not necessary. English could be used for government business but the use of any language while engaging in commercial, religious, or personal use should not be prohibited. Imagine someone eating at a restaurant and being told to leave the premises because his or her use of her native language offends other patrons. I see this last scenario the misguided and extreme interpretation that some people will try to give to this new legislation.

&quot;Pattern&quot;, Raw Stats on iblers Who answered My Questions.

OK, Here are the rough results on the questions I asked recently in the forum "Looking for a Pattern Here". Some of the answers were open for interpretation, so there is a margin for error here. THere were 19 folks who helped me out so far, and here's what I came up with. Nothing scientific by the way, just interesting. 1. Grades: 12 had consistently good grades (B or higher), 3 had a C average, and 4 were the whole spectrum (A-F). NOthing surprising there to me. 2. Handedness: Only 3 lefties! 16 Righties, with a couple of those being almost ambidextrous. I know statistically, that 3 lefties is high (compared to average), but I just expected more on this site. 3.Reading Materials: This one was hard to quantify, and there were a lot who read tech stuff, but there were a surprising number of novel-readers (8-9), and one (mainly) comics reader! (Somehow I still respect you Bumpus!) 4. Language: 8 were truly Bi-lingual or Multi-lingual, of the remaining 11, about half had some "foreign language" awareness/experience. 5. Home Life: I was pleasantly surpised to see that overwhelmingly most (16)of the respondents grew up in 2-parent homes. With the current divorce rate, I expected very different numbers. Of the other 3, there were diverse family situations. 6. Optimist/Pessimist: 11 optimists, 6 pessimists, 2 mixed. I genuinely expected more pessimists (You guys are so young!). 7. Religious/Spiritual vs. Agnostic/Irreligious: 8 were religious or spiritual, 9 were not religious, 2 were non- categorizable (sp?). 8. Priorities: Unquantifiable, but there were a lot who's priorities centered around family. The other few leaned towards personal success/enjoyment. 9.Succes of Projects: 10 were some variety of procrastination, 3 were consistent successes, 2 tended to quit before finishing, and the other 4 were some (hard to classify) mixture of the others. What do you think? What does this all mean? I'll be trying to cross-reference the stats to see actual patterns or correlations in the above traits.
