I've started the process to translate the Silverstripe CMS into Afrikaans. I'm doing what I can, but my native language is English. Any takers, apply at translate.silverstripe.org.

Any help would be appreciated. This is an awesome Open Source (BSD license) CMS that could go far.

Google Translate does English<->Afrikaans, or do they prefer the human element?

I'm guessing the human element would be preferable... AI translation can only go so far... :p

I'm navitely Boer, so maybe I can give it a shot.

EDIT: Ok, registered... Awaiting my login details.

It's quite specific, actually. You get a list of phrases that need to be translated.

Fair enough, was just "throwing it out there".

Google Translate comes in very handy for us non-boer's who have to work with you boer types and keep getting email in that strange language you speak :p :whistling:

Wat sê jy? Ek dink nie ek verstaan lekker nie... :D

Seriously though - still waiting for my login details. Can it really take this long? :confused:

I've translated a few terms during the day whilst sitting at a client on technical support stand-by... Felt good to contribute!
