Translating offline

Hi Spider. Welcome to! You can now start translating. You should also check the portal for your language, the link is in the sidebar. Other useful pages are linked in the menu that comes with this message.

Your translations are transferred to the standard product every few days or every few weeks depending on the product. Please notice that it may take longer before you see your translation in the actual product. It can be just a few days before they appear on Wikipedia, but a few months can pass between each new release of FreeCol.

We wish you a productive and pleasant stay. Please leave any questions on Support. Cheers!

Re: Ellipsis

The answer from the audience is rather "Welcome among us grammar nazis!". ;-) (Speaking of which, are you sure it's "uncountable" and not "countless"?) Thanks also for the other info about you. If you care about quality, you should be interested in our quality assurance features. Regards,

Well, “countless” would imply that the number of them is so big that it is inherently impossible to count them (counting itself is impossible). “Uncountable” hints at unfeasibility, since not only there is an abundance of such talks, there is often also the lack of documentation about them, so theoretically they can be counted: nothing prevents the existance of such a count, but it is not feasible for various reasons (e.g., too many; no info; nobody cares). Well, thanks for a warm welcome ;) --Spider (talk) 13:29, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
