Translating offline

Hi {{{1}}}. 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!

Hi Wōdenhelm. I have given you translator rights, so there is no need to request them anymore. Have fun on Special:Translate! Siebrand 13:24, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Old English

Hi Wōdenhelm. I don't know Old English, but as far as I understand this, I think you are changing infinitive to imperative (sorry if I am wrong). Please use infinitive (see this edit). Greetings, SPQRobin 15:04, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

With the context of the phrase, shouldnt the phrase be in the imperative? Or is there a guideline that everything should be in the infinitive, even if grammatically awkward? If it's required to be in the infinitive, I'll go ahead and revert it. —Wōdenhelm 15:08, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
In the link I gave you it is good explained: infinitive if the user asks something of the computer, and "protect this page" seems imperative, but is infinitive because it is of course optional to protect a page. Imperative should only be used when the computer needs something from the user (such as "retype your password"). But, this is only advice, I don't say you need to do this.

For now, I'll simply leave it as imperative, solely for the grammar of the phrase (but I'm not gonna be hard-bent towards it). The imperative can be used even as a question, in Wearda þisne tramet?, but the infinitive would come into play if weardian were acting as a secondary verb, such as Willst þū þisne tramet weardian?Wōdenhelm 15:25, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

OE User Page

Hi Wodenhelm, I do have an OE user page, I'm sure you've found by now :) - I'm slowly getting back to OE and the wikis, as real-life issues took over for a while, so I couldn't do much online. But I'm back, mostly correcting grammar/spelling (no one uses genitive somehow...) and if you've got any questions, comments, etc., feel free to ask. I appreciate all your work there so far, and the only think I ask is to double-check grammar and spelling before submitting a page (I still hit 'preview' before going for it).

If you're up for it, perhaps we could tag-team getting some more plant articles together? There's a list of plant names in OE on the web, we can set up some easy pages with those, under the Latin names, and get those together for future expansion. Let me know if you're up for it. --JJohnson 01:15, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
