Here you can find the internally used terminology that has been or still needs to be translated.
Some terminology doesn't have to be translated anymore or has to be translated and adapted. This will be indicated. Although we focus in a first phase on the languages ces, deu, ell, eng, fra, hin, ita, nld, pol, por, rus, slk, spa, tur and zho, we certainly appreciate translations into any other languages.

Translating input forms
If you want to translate an input form, you can do so by putting your translation of the elements from the list below into a spreadsheet file. Use the numbering of the list in the first column of your file. Please do not translate the list, but click on the links per element as some elements need not be translated anymore or need a special format, which you can see on the respective pages. You can choose any of the existing languages as source language.
If you just want to see how a form looks like, don't log in and click on one of the Add terms links in the left menu, type in any term and click the button. You'll see the form, but won't be able to save anything. Please note: some elements of the following list are not part of the form itself, but still need to be translated.

How to check and test a newly translated input form
Once you have translated the form elements, we will create the form and link it to the forms in the other languages. Then we'll send you (and/or another person) a link to the newly created form, a log-in and a password. Then follow the following steps:
- Log in with the log-in and password provided (This user has the status "specialist" (you'll see what that means)).
- Go to the provided link for testing the form
- Check whether everything is correct in the form language in this first part of the form
- Type in a term in the form language
- Click on the button
- Check whether everything is correct in the form language in this second part of the form
- Check the checkbox for eng and/or deu and/or nld (and of any other available language you want) and fill in the translations for the term you want to add in the fields of the languages you selected. Use capital letters if and only if that is the correct spelling in the respective language!
- Type in the Add section(s) field (that is the big "word processing" field) in the form's language == Internal comment == and then (in English): FORM TEST + your first and last name (or the first two letters of your first and last name = 4 letters in total).
- Click the button save page, or first preview
- Check whether everything is correct in the new form language in the resulting page
- Let us know:
- whether you found any mistakes
- whether everything would be clear for a contributor speaking the new form language
