Linden Lab Viewer Update

Linden Lab has updated the community on progress being made with localisation with the SL viewer. The full story can be read here.

I'll let LL continue:

Localized Viewers:

As promised, the viewer is now available in ten languages. It has been translated into German, French, Japanese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, Hungarian, Simplified Chinese and Polish. It is still partially translated into Spanish and Danish. Next version (1.23) will feature fully revamped Spanish, further improved Brazilian Portuguese, Simplified Chinese and Danish. We will also add the following languages: Italian, Dutch, Russian, and Ukrainian. We may be able to squeeze one more (fingers crossed).

Over the past months, the localized French, German and Japanese Viewers have all been improved through collaborative glossary compiling, translations, internationalization and localization testing completed by Resident volunteers.

A similar effort is now under way for Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Italian, Dutch and Danish where our residents have collaboratively developed glossaries, determining style and register guidelines. They are now collaboratively translating and editing viewer strings.

In the meantime, our Engineering Team is working hard to fix the internationalization issues that prevent full localization of the viewer.

Other Localizations:

Thanks to the collaborative work of our wonderful community translators, editors and testers, the registration section of our website is now available in nine languages: German, French, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, Italian and Dutch.

Multilingual For Sale Sign

Verballis continues to develop a line of products offering a multilingual solution. The latest product created by Mark Lock is a for sale sign in 6 languages - German, Spanish, Dutch, English, French and Italian.

Set-up is simple and is available in these six languages. Features include displaying the for sale sign in a single language, a combination of languages or all six languages in a cycle. You can also set the time interval which determines how quickly the language displayed will change.

This is perfect for those who may wish to display alternately a “For Sale" and "Te Koop” message in a Dutch oriented sim but “For Sale" and "Zu Verkaufen“ in a German sim.

For only L$50 you can purchase a COPY / MOD version of this stylish red and black sign which also incorporates a notecard giver. The item is listed for sale on XstreetSL or if you prefer you can tp and view before purchasing.

Just send an IM or email if you are a creator and would like to offer additional languages for your creations. Verballis can offer a number of options in meeting your requirements and we are particularly interested in partnering with SL creators to create new multilingual products.
