A Request

Heyo, noticed you have been doing polish translations, so since you are, I have a request. I will be leaving a list of categories that need to be translated in polish. I would ask if you please translate them. Translating categories is the same as translating any other page, Just smaller. Thanks!

Re: Note about Edits

I appreciate your suggestion, however, I do not agree with what you say. The reason for this is that I used to translate articles like you mentioned, namely, „in one hit” but I came to the conclusion that it's wrong, since doing so I prevent the readers from accessing the content I already translated, but still had not published. Why is that? Firstly, because I (contrary to the great deal of other contributors) focus on articles concerning the key aspect of the game that is strategy - which require extreme amount of time to translate (like Community Mann vs. Machine strategy which I translated single-handedly and which as a whole measured more or less 40 A4 pages). Therefore, I believe that my “small steps” technique is much better, than the one I employed before. I think that doing so I make my edits more transparent when it comes to the content and enable the staff, namely, moderators and administrators to see what exactly I translate. I do not think that doing so I can cause any annoyance in other users, since the edit count which you mentioned is limited to a certain number after which the “Recent Edits” page stops showing other contributions of the same user. I believe you were referring to the “Recent Edits/pl” where the situation may be different since the Polish version of the wiki has relatively few contributors and which therefore may present an extended number of editions because there is space for it (contrary to the global “Recent Edits”). I am not trying to acquire attention, as to my understanding it's senseless. Moreover, obtaining anything else here too. Since I haven't received such a complaint from anyone else except you, I believe it's not a “global” problem and continue publishing my contributions in the way I am used to do it. I hope you will understand my point of view. Let me also encourage you to acquaint yourself with the translations I made (a list is available here: User:Canis/Translations) as a proof of my honesty. Canis (talk) 08:37, 23 July 2014 (PDT)

First of all, it's better if the discussion stays on just one page ;)
Anyway, I understand most of your reasons, but I agree with Gabriel that your translation of sections is way to extreme. There's nothing wrong with translating sections of a bigger article (I did this with one of my first articles, Basic Spy strategy/de, too), but your sections are really small, they're often just one entry of a list. Therefore, I can't understand your argument that your're "prevent[ing] the readers from accessing the content [you] already translated".
In conclusion, of course you're allowed to translate pages step by step, but please translate bigger sections, for example in the Spy checking/pl page, each class strategy in one edit. If you continue translating this page as you do now, every list entry in one edit, you know how many edits you'll have? (Not counting all other sentences): 135. On one page. Way too much, espcially when you consider you can do these small edits rather quick so the recent edits contain a them.

Tłumaczenia artykułów

Witaj. W stworzonych przez ciebie polskich wersjach artykułów dotyczących przedmiotów źle tłumaczysz angielski czasownik "to contribute" na "kontrybuować". Ani taka forma ani czasownik w języku polskim nie istnieje. Wyraz "kontrybucja" ma zupełnie inne znaczenie, cytując za Słownikiem Poprawnej Polszczyzny PWN-u "kontrybucja" to danina pieniężna, jednorazowa lub stała, nakładana przez okupanta na podbite państwo. Zatem, chcąc poprawnie przetłumaczyć dany artykuł powinieneś użyć sformułowania "został dodany" a nie "został kontrybuowany" do Warsztatu Steam. Natomiast chcąc przetłumaczyć zdanie typu "He contributed to the Wiki" powinieneś zastosować zwrot "Wniósł wkład w projekt Wiki". Jaki z tego morał? Nie zawsze podobnie brzmiący polski odpowiednik obcojęzycznego słowa koniecznie oznacza to samo. Chociażby "authority" często jest mylone z "autorytetem" a w rzeczywistości oznacza "władzę". Canis (talk) 09:03, 20 October 2014 (PDT)

Na początku faktycznie tak tłumaczyłem, lecz inni użytkownicy także korzystali ze słowa 'kontrybuowany', a więc po jakimś czasie i moja wersja tłumaczenia uległa zmianie. Za dużo patrzenia i poprawiania starych artykułów, które owe słówko posiadają. Początkowe wątpliwości zostały rozwiązane przez wpis na jednych ze stron SJP mówiące o znaczeniu i wersji czasownikowej tego słówka, a znaczenie brzmiało wystarczająco przekonująco, biorąc także pod uwagę użycie go w najstarszych artykułach. Zapamiętam to przy kontynuowaniu tłumaczeń przedmiotów.

Nazwy aktualizacji

Nie musisz pisać ([[Meet Your Match Update/pl|Poznaj Wroga Swego]]), wystarczy ({{update link|Meet Your Match Update}}). A nazwy jakości są teraz z małych liter, podobnie nazwy aktualizacji; "Poznaj wroga swego". User Denied signature.jpg Denied (Talk) 15:21, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
