New language additions
On 29 May 2007 | By Thuan Huynh | Permalink
Our last weekend was devoted to retooling the site to welcome eight new languages. You'll find the new view in wikipage header section and on clicked, you'll see the new list of languages that now includes Russian, Greek, Turkish and Chinese among others.
Why and how did we choose those languages? There's no secret, by user demand. People keeps writing to us about the language restriction and to be clear on this, if you find that a language is missing — like Hebrew that we're working on —, just drop us a message with the contact box. We will include them in the next batch of new additions.
Adding new languages also implies a reformated layout of status pages. We opted for a list that could provide the following advantages:
- Users should and could scan the version list faster.
- Jumping to a language should be possible within a click.
- Display a dozen languages while keeping the layout clean.
The result yield in a list that looks like the previous one. All the languages show up by clicking on the [...] icon. Some visual enhancement effects are on their way to Traduwiki. They will help you to navigate faster. We're taking some times to implement, are cautiously working on them as we don't want multiple scripts to slow the download time of some pages, and above that, as we think Traduwiki is your site.
Thanks for all the users who support us. We hope you like it as much as we do!
