German Translation

Hi!

Thank you for developing Octane Render!

But the German translation of the Sketchup exporter is terrible. If you like (and I think it would be really much better!) please use the corrected/improved translation attached to this message. I am a native German speaker and can assure you that it is much better. E.g. to translate "face" with a human face is very confusing when Octane Render Exporter say "Exporting faces" but there are no humans in the scene! ;-) I think you shouldn't translate faces, it is a special computer graphics word. Please see the attached translation file.

Kind regards

Dominique

Thank you.

As I said when I published the lingvo files... I knew they would be far from perfect!
I don't even speak German!
I need native language speakers such as yourself to help improve them.
You could even write your own lingvos by following the guidance in the Help document - if for example you a were Russian!
I shall add your translations to the next release.
Meanwhile any German speakers who want your translations now can simply download your zip file and replace the equivalent files with yours... :geek:
PS: Presumably there is a word for 'Face' in German that you can apply to a 'Face' that forms a 'Surface' or 'Facet' in Sketchup ? That is the word we'd need...
know in French translations there is great debate about the correct word for Edge/Line as there are several alternatives too :roll:

Yes, you are right, I thought about it and the correct translation for "Face" is probably "Fläche".

Face = Fläche
Edge = Kante
Vertex = Ecke

I made my diploma thesis in computer graphics (C++, OpenGL, QT) so I might be a little too much used to use the English words for these items. If you would like to translate it, you are right, there are German translations as stated above. :-)

I will see if I can find any "Faces" in the lingvo files and upload an updated ZIP file to this thread later.

Anyway it is great that it is so easy to correct these translations!

I have translated another Rendersoftware and it is not easy to find the sense inbetween.
Some words are dependent from what you mean. You can say Edge = Kante, but sometimes it is usefull to say line if you describe something.
Same for Vertices = Ecke. Scheitelpunkt could be also the right therm. Face is Fläche, but sometimes you can say Ebene.....
But dom is correct here.

Oh yes, you are right, the translation of edges and vertices is probably not easy. My translation is also just a suggestion, if anyone wants to improve it, please don't hesitate to do it! It was just that I could not bear the existing translation ;-)

Luckily there were no edges or vertices in these files and I think "Fläche" is good for the one place in the octane plugin. I have translated the file of the "FixReversedFaceMaterials" plugin now, too (see attachement). I included also the changed "Fläche" translation in the attached ZIP file so you don't need the previous ZIP any more.

"FixReversedFaceMaterials" was already a very useful tool for me, thank you for this plugin!
