Instructions for translators

Overall, I recommend following these guidelines, but I also recommend branching away from them if necessary:

  • Try not to translate phrases word by word (transliteration) and be faithful to the intent.
    • This is an endemic issue on YouTube, so we can learn from their mistakes.
    • Easy ones are things like 'views', in languages like Bengali, there's no clear way to describe views with one word, but when YT translated their webapp to Bengali, they wrote it as "22,23,669টি ভিউ" (Notice the lack of Bengali numerals and the literally writing ভিউ i.e. view, don't do that).
    • When I translated this to Bengali, I made it so that you'd get ২২,২৩,৬৬৯ বার দেখা হয়েছে এই videoটি কে (i.e. 22,23,669 times watched this video was). PM also uses the relevant numerals of the locale.
  • In some cases, since languages differ in subject structure, positioning of arguments may need to be changed. If that's the case, feel free to email me or message on the below IRC/Matrix channel. In vast majority of places this shouldn't be a problem since I have already added support for this, but if you do find a place, we'll make the changes.
  • Sometimes languages require special font attention, since in many cases the default system fonts are suboptimal or don't exist at all. YouTube, Piped and friends don't include fonts per language, but PM has per-language font support. Currently, as of 2022-01-24 it's as follows:
    • Latin & Cyrillic-based languages: Inter
    • Bengali: Baloo Da 2
    • Traditional Chinese: Noto Sans TC
    • Simplified Chinese: Noto Sans SC
    • Japanese: Noto Sans JP
    • Korean: Noto Sans KR
    • If you do feel like your language needs support, feel free to get in touch
  • Also, P, PM and YT have novel concepts and words that haven't yet been appeared in many lexicons, try to use verbose but understandable words or phrases in its place but don't be afraid to use new neologisms.
