French Transifex have a lot of errors.

K17K17 Français / French Paris, France ✭✭✭

Hey!

I start a new discussion because I want to notice the bad French Transifex.

The translations have a lot of french errors, or a lot of untranslated parts.

(Like: "Name commenter sur discussion", in french they have to be "Name a posté un commentaire sur discussion" or "Name a commenté discussion")

I've asked to be a French Transifex translator, but i'm not approved by the Vanilla Transifex team.

  • Académie française disproves of this translation. It will disprove of subsequent translations also. Only official translations will be accepted. ;)

    grep is your friend.

    Enfin le français canadien et le français français sont deux choses différentes, pas de beaucoup mais il y a quelques tournures de phrases différentes m. Mais je savais pas qu'il y a fr-CA en pack de langue.

    Yes and it is 100% better than lol... specially because the emotion is transferred as you type hahahahahhaha ha ! It is more genuine than lol , but lmao is good and roflmao is also good. What would the French be for those?

    I am sure there is something...to translate LMAO = RMC= Rire mon cul?

    RMC is a radio station. I see it different now.
    RMC can be :
    Radio mes couilles
    Radio mon cul
    Rire mon cul....
    And more XD
    (je suis désolé pour les francophones qui peuvent trouver ca vulgaire)

    Yes thats because saying ass is not as frowned upon as saying ass in another language. And perhaps LMAO keeps it from reading too vulgar if someone finds the word ass, offensive. Just tell them ass is a donkey. That will make them laugh their asses off...
