Search - "multilingual"
Dear mobile apps devs,
No one's gonna hate you if you do not provide a multilingual support. Just, please, stop using Google Translate and force the app's language to the phone system's. It's just dumb
A non native english speaker11
Why the Fuck anyone who knows programming is assumed to be nerdy ?
Also, this guy's "multilingual" approach backfired strong12

IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A SIMPLE FUCKING SCREWDRIVER!
FUCK YOU AND YOUR ENTIRE FUCKING EXISTENCE YOU USELESS FUCK!9

Bloody scammers and bloody Paypal.
So I bought echo spot just to see how good it's voice recognition is and also wanted to see what the spot does different. So I found out that it was like hello world for AI. So I wanted to sell it on ebay-kleinanzeigen.de. It's a website from Ebay here in Germany where you can easily sell your stuff that you don't need anymore. I put it there and someone just wanted it so badly and he said that he broke his friends spot and he has no money and he need it very badly cheaper. My price was 98€ and I believed him and sold it for 85€. Now he got the device and wants the refund because the device doesn't match the description and the things he mentioned weren't even in the description. The message you see in the pic it says: It doesn't do skype and it is impossible on that device. First It is his responsibility to inform himself about the device features I'm not Amazon to write something like that in the description I've to just say how the device looks. Second it does skype and it is possible but both partners must have the same device and they should connect it to their smartphones.
But that is not the bad part that my money is ceased and got ownd by a scammer. The bad part is that I wanted to reply his message but the bloody paypal design won't let me do that. Remind me how old is paypal now? It's been there for ages and the footer is just stuck in the middle of the page and won't allow me to click on reply button. Of course I later managed to write a reply but paypal shouldn't have these kind of problems.
I'm so upset right now because these things are wasting my time. I've my final exame in a week and I've to develop a parameter based multilingual CMS, just imagine how long would just data structure take.1
I hate Mondays...
So, Yours truly, the multilingual flightless bird leaves his apartment... Locks door... Fucking key gets stuck in lock (had some attempted home invasion attempt last year, left a few things bent).
The last thing I can use today, important project to work on with a deadline close enough to worry about.
I would say that's a classic Error 500 on login kinda situation.
The irony? I fancy myself a pretty good lock picker(A must have for an aspiring pentester) .
Luckily, a quick squirt of gun oil resolved that one... Seriously, how do people manage without a supply of tools and stuff?3
tl;dr i am proud of my universal program but annoyed it won't get appreciation.
i kept in mind that this tool might not only help my personal duties to be done more efficient but also might come in handy to all my colleagues having similar tasks to do. the downside is my colleagues having irrational computerphobia and i know for sure they will proceed to do these repetitive writings manually resulting in inconsistencies and an inefficient time management. while my wise wife tries to convice me that at least i had fun coding this stuff and having it supporting me with annoying tasks, it still bothers me being the only user, as it means no progression for the company. it riddles me how the colleagues, acknowledging us all being craftspeople in the first place, avoid use of computers whenever possible and rather rely on medieval working flows.
i find it quite amusing to be the 'can you fix my printer'-guy, but i just cannot handle this attitude. and everyone complains about having so much to do. get your shit together and start clicking these few buttons goddammit!
Why aren't there more programming languages out there that aren't derived from English?
We're in the age of universal UTF-8 support, if it was meant to be then it should be happening now.
Question for Droid gurus here.
Is there any way to use different fonts in android for different languages ?
I have changed ttf to add urdu fonts but then I'm seeing boxes instead of emoji and symbols. Can I add it to urdu only.
On web we have CSS unicode-range in @font-face which sets a boundary for different fonts to be used for different unicode characters/ranges.
Can this be done in android system some way ?
I'm not talking about using it in an app but in whole droid.1
I will be investigating but I'll let the question here in case someone knows a way and is kind enough to share it...
WordPress site in Spanish, we need a multilingual plugin or something to let the visitor click a flag or something and see the site translated in English (by hand, no online translator service required).
This would be so easy to code, but they chose WordPress over malleability. c:
Any plugin or idea?2
JFC, who thought that handling multilingual menus like that is even remotely a good idea?
When you add menu item in one language it will show up in EVERY language regardless if it's translated or not. Every godforsaken module that's supposed to fix it breaks something else and the only way to make it work is patching the FREAKING CORE.
And what's worse people in issues ticket have the GAL to question if showing menu item only in its given language by default is the intuitive approach.
Plus there's no way to preview menu structure in any language other than default admin language, except adding language switcher to admin pages manually, that shit should show up automatically the moment I enabled menu localization.
FUCK Drupal8+ and its "We integrated that module in the core! Except we shaved off half the functionality!" approach.
And if you want me to use Drupal Console, then FUCKING FIX IT, it's been uninstallable for the past three months!
