Notes

Hi, I just noticed a few errors in you Taunts/da translation.

  1. Add the {{DISPLAYTITLE}} template at the beginneng of the article to show "Hån" rather than "Taunts/da".
  2. Localize the wikilinks correctly. [[Heavy]] is transformed into [[Heavy/da|Heavy]].

Have fun ;)

Welcome back :)

I just saw your page and wanted to wish you a happy return from hiatus. The /da side has been moving rather slowly lately since both I and WikiPan are busy people.

I'm sure you'll do some good work and don't forget that you can always ask us if you have any questions :) (btw if you want to respond then respond on here, don't respond on my page ~wiki rules~)

Hej og velkommen tilbage fra din (forlænget) ferie! Sætter stor pris på din indsats og er glad for at se, at den danske sektion ikke er blevet helt 'forsømt' efter Faghetti og jeg fik andre ting at se til :-). Har taget et kig på nogle af dine seneste oversættelser og umiddelbart er der stadig lidt at arbejde med.
Som du kan se har Faghetti allerede rettet lidt hist og her i nogle af dine oversættelser; her, her og her.
Ellers er du godt på vej! Hvis du ikke var obs på det har vi vores egen lille side, hvorpå der er lidt praktisk information vedrørende grammatisk struktur mv. samt en liste over 'officielle' betegnelser.
Jeg har dog også selv lige et par fif til, hvordan du kan forbedre dig i fremtiden:
  • Sammensatte navneord - mange danskere har en tendens med at dele sammensatte navneord op i to, f.eks. skal "turnings medaljer" og "profil baggrund" kun være ét ord. Der findes en masse kilder online, som forklarer huskereglerne ved sammensatte navneord.
  • Direkte oversættelse - ja, den her er lidt tricky og jeg må indrømme at jeg selv er røget i fælden den gang, jeg startede. Som regl er det bedst ikke altid at holde sig til lige det, den engelse tekst siger, da det kan resultere i en unaturlig oversættelse og dermed ikke er rart at læse. F.eks. vil det være bedre at henvise til klasserne som en person fremfor en ting, dvs. at hvis der henvises til en klasse såsom "The Scout" ville det lyde bedre hvis man blot bare skrev "Scout" fremfor "Scouten".
  • Wiki-formatering - jeg vil stærkt anbefale at bruge en 'link'-template, når der henvises til genstande og/eller opdateringslinks; link-templates såsom {{item link}} og {{update link}} fungerer på den måde, at de returnerer en streng, som hentes inde fra Template:Dictionary sådan så linket bliver oversat i det pågældende sprog, f.eks. {{item link|Force-A-Nature}} eller {{update link|Smissmas 2018}}. Ønsker du at oversætte en streng uden at medføre et link er det nogenlunde samme koncept, men her bruges der bare item name i stedet. Henviser du til en ekstern kilde, hvorpå indholdet er på et andet sprog (primært engelsk) bruges der endnu en gang en template, nemlig {{lang icon|en}} efterfulgt af en parameter såsom "en" (engelsk), hvilket bare er en forkortelse for dets sprogkode.
Det var alt for nu. Håber ikke, at det var alt for uoverskueligt at læse - og husk at du altid kan spørge om hjælp. God fornøjelse :D User Wookipan Golden Strawberry.png Wookipan (talk | contribs) 19:28, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
Tak for de pointers! Jeg har tøvet lidt med at spørge fordi at jeg ikke rigtig var sikker på hvor, men det her er virkelig en stor hjælp, tak for at gøre mig opmærksom på det!
Jeg havde virkelig ingen idé om at den Danske del havde sådan en omfattende måde at gå omkring det på, især med de her 'typiske brugte sætninger' sektion, damn hvis jeg dog bare havde opsøgt det noget tideligere xD Tak igen for hjælpen, håber på at jeg kan gøre det bedre fremadrettet! --Mrsirpotatohead (talk) 20:00, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
Det er jeg glad for at høre! Faktisk har alle oversættelsesteams her på wikien hver deres egen side og 'ordbog' - nogle har bare gjort lidt mere ud af det end andre for at leve op til en bedre standard :-) User Wookipan Golden Strawberry.png Wookipan (talk | contribs) 14:15, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

Thank you! (I hope this is the right way to respond (It wasn't))

I hope this is the right way to respond, lol. I really appriciate the message, I'm glad to know that people are still very active on here!

I'm really determined to make the /da section great again! I'm guessing the IRC channel would be the way to communicate? (You don't need to answer that unless it's wrong)

Other than a few formalities I'm now learning about, I'm feeling more than ready to get back into translation.

Thanks again!

Normally you would just write something beneath the other message, but yeah ;) IRC is great, come say hi! Faghetti V.2 (talk) 09:03, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
Ah, alright, thanks for letting me know! And will do! --Mrsirpotatohead (talk) 10:25, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

A few more things regarding cosmetic translations.

  • Be vary when translating verbs relating to "to be". In Danish it can both be "At blive" and "at være" and they are mostly not interchangable. For example "I was mad at them" --> "Jeg VAR sur på dem" (feeling), but "I was arrested" --> "Jeg BLEV arresteret" (action). Not sure what the exact rule is, but you should be able to see and hear the difference... with that in mind: "Item BLEV tilføjet til spillet." is the correct translation for patch notes not "Item VAR tilføjet til spillet." As you can hear and see the two sentences say completely different things: One says that on this day this item was added to the game (which is correct) while the other says this item was already added on that day (which doesn't really make sense). Same for the "item BLEV bidraget til Steam-værkstedet." instead of "item VAR bidraget til Steam-værkstedet.". It GOT added it wasn't already added so it has to be 'BLEV'. I know I linger on the point, but it is just so I am sure that you understand why the way you've been translating it is off.
  • Categories at the bottom only need a /da and not a translation afterwards. "[[Category:Items with styles/da]]" is correct while "[[Category:Items with styles/da|Genstande med stile]]" is wrong.
  • Don't forget to translate the update link in the item box. And also, please use {{update link}} for linking updates. It is way superior. Same with items on the page when they are mentioned: use {{item link}} (Especially under the "se også" section).
  • Be wary of putting a "den/det" in front of {{item name}}. For "Mønstret Munkehætte" (for example) you make it say "Den Mønstret Munkehætte" which is grammatically wrong since it would have to be "Den Mønstrede Munkehætte". We get around this by saying everything translated by {{item name}} IS the name of the item (which is true - so work with it like you would a regular "proper noun"). so you shouldn't waste time conjugating it or anything. So remove the "THE" and just go with {{item name}} in the future, thanks.
    • EDIT: Two small exceptions to this rule. For names where you can add a "-en/-et" in front and it still looks fine you are allowed to do so (as you have done for "pocket pardner" for example - "Lommepartner(en).) and if you should run across an item name that contains a verb in what we would call "præsens participium" (lang tillægsform) such as "Løbende", "siddende", "spisende" etc. (a name could be "løbende ridder" for example) that doesn't already have "den/det" in its actual name then you ARE allowed to put it there. But these are the only exceptions. In all other cases you should NOT conjugate the verb/adjective or add any articles to compensate. For both these cases you are also allowed not to do it, though. Depends on what you prefer.


  • " "name of style" stil " is wrong, you need to use a hyphen: "name of style-stil". 'Why' you ask? Because when you conjugate it, you conjugate "stil" and not the name in front of it so it has to be composite just like "hårstil" isn't "hår stil". Hyphen are used in the following situations: You got an untranslatable English word (example: buzzcut-stil), you combine a non-composite noun with another noun: (example: 'tegn og gæt'-konkurrence) or you got an acronym or other shortening in front (example: NATO-møde). This mean that you should also stop writing "holdfarvet" as "hold-farvet".
  • Be vary of the wikipedia link format: [[w:France|Frankrig]]. Just putting a :da: in the middle so it says [[w:da:France|Frankrig]] won't link it to the Danish wikipedia. Why? Because our page isn't called "france" it is called "Frankrig" so you have to write: [[w:da:Frankrig|Frankrig]]. If we do not have a translated wiki link (which is often for /da) then you make it link to the English wikipedia and add {{lang icon|en}} behind it so people know it links to something that isn't Danish.
  • In general be more vary of spelling mistakes. It is a "halstørklæde" not a "halsterklæde". It is a "fryns" not a "frøns". And so on and so forth. And be espeially vary on when nouns need to be composite or not

Hopefully this will cut down the things to correct by quite a bit :) Good work thus far and Happy translating! Faghetti V.2 (talk) 14:35, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
