DuckDuckGo, alternative to google, is open for translation.

Postby jan_kale » Tue Jan 03, 2012 7:20 pm

DuckDuckGo is nice because it is open source, they don't filter your results, and they don't track you.

After signing up for their newsletter, I got an email today that let me know they are now open for translations.

Last month we launched the DuckDuckGo Community Platform, which will serve as a hub for community tools. The first tool lets people help translate DDG into their languages. Check it out at https://dukgo.com/ -- it's all open source: https://github.com/duckduckgo/community-platform


If you register on their community site it gives you the option to select which languages you know and at what proficiency you know them. It also gives you the option to add a new language if the one you want is not there.

For myself, I selected English-US and I added Esperanto, as well as Toki Pona. I think if we get many people adding these languages they will be more likely to add them to the possible translations.

I don't have much experience in translating Toki Pona for the internet and computers, but I think it will be fun to try this :D

The languages have been added! I've begun slowly filling in translations, but it would be a much better work if done by many people. There is a system where we can vote on the best way to translate things.

Help! I can't find where the toki pona localization string page (or what ever it is) is located. I was looking in the github repo.

Click on the red box, and then on DuckDuckGo Core.
Make sure you don't translate the sections that have a "Translations of other users" box unless your translation is an improvement.
Please correct my mistakes :)

The creator said that it will take a while to upload the flag or something, he said that he uploaded the jpg's for Esperanto and TP though. No worries!

Yeah, I told them to use these famfamfamy flags I made for WikiLang: Image Image
I've sent them an email asking when they'll appear, but I didn't get a reply yet.
I'm sure patience will do the trick, though.
Please correct my mistakes :)

a, pona. tenpo la toki pona li wilo jo e ilo ISO taso !

ah, good. Then, toki pona just needs an ISO coding !

The flag does look good though, and jumping on duckduckgo could be a fun way to gain more exposure. Although doing the translations I'm seeing the need for practical numbers again, but it's no big deal.

pali pona !

no ISO code yet, only "art" for artificial language
