Not yet translated



  • A few years ago I did some work on the side by creating websites for individuals and small companies who wanted a cheap website. This work

    consisted mostly of just taking a CMS, taking a template and hacking them together. The pay wasn't high, the results were crappy at best but

    both the clients and I were satisfied.

    One day however, a client came to me and he wanted something more. He wanted a website which supported multiple languages. His business was

    in selling parts for machines and he was mostly active in the UK. More recently though, he acquired a German business partner and was

    planning on going more international. So for our nice friends in Germany and the countries that followed, he wanted to present his website

    in their native language.

    With my uber PHP 3 skills I started hacking together the code. He didn't want anything fancy, just to create new pages and fill them with

    content. If he wanted anything more in the future, he said, he would contact me or someone else by that time and get it redone. Not a

    problem. So I wrote a simple CMS system to create new pages, fill them with content and save it to a database. I implemented a feature to

    select a language per page to edit that page in the chosen language. Say you select German, you can then edit the German version of the

    page. On the website there was a prominent and dedicated language selection option, so visitors could easily select the language of their

    choice, and then view the page in that language. Also included for the administrator was the ability to add new languages, so when he would

    make a deal with someone from the US, they could view it in their language (wink wink).

    I had several review sessions with the client and he mentioned it was all perfect and how he had expected it. So after about two months of

    coding, I was done and deployed the website and I got paid. The client started adding content and everything was good.

    However, about half a month later, the client contacted me by phone and sounded furious. He had been had, I had cheated on him and he wanted

    his money back. I tried to calm him down and asked him what was up. Was there a bug in the system? Did it erase his content? Or even worse,

    did it somehow infect his clients with viruses? I could only guess. He invited me over to discuss the problem, so I went.

    When I got there, he showed me the website I made, and some of the content he wrote. All was looking well, so I still had no idea what the fuss was about. He then selected another language. I already noticed then that he had not just added German, but a bunch of other languages as well. I thought he had been busy with a translator probably, to get the most out of the new website and get it translated into a lot of languages, just to be sure. He selected French and a blank page showing up, displaying a message that content was not yet translated into this language. He barked at me "not yet translated!? how long will this take??". I did not understand at that moment, I just thought there was something wrong with the script of the database.

    He went on to select a few other languages and a few other pages, all displaying the same message (I made it so it would display the message also in the selected language, and in English as a fallback when no error message was entered in that language). So I took over, went to the administration panel, selected a page and then selected German. No content was there, so I asked him if he had entered the content in German for that page, and if the problem was that the content did somehow disappear? "Entered the content in German!? I don't even know German!"

    It only took a few seconds from then to realise that it never was his intention to enter content in different languages. He just wanted to press "Add new language" and all the existing content was translated automatically. And that when he created a new page, it would be translated to all existing languages. I explained him that was not at all possible in two months work and £800. He dismissed me, barking at me while I left the building that it was wrong of me to cheat him into this.

    When I visited his website about a week later to see how he had solved the problem, extranous flows of Engrish greeted me in several languages (I happen to know a bit of German and Dutch myself). I guess in the end they found their translator, probably called something along the lines of "Google".

    Uh-huh.



  • People think their magic computer boxes can do anything. I'm curious: was the nature of this language feature clearly specified in a contractual document? That's a huge misunderstanding to make it all the way through a project. I'm surprised he didn't ask about the magical translation feature when you sat down to demo the application to him.

    It's a stupid world, so I could definitely see this exact situation ending up in court somewhere, with some doofus plantiff dragging a poor befuddled programmer into court to try to explain that computers don't run on magical fairy dust.



  •  This reminds me of something that happened the other day that's not worth making a thread about. I called T-Mobile to change my billing address, and they have a voice-recognition system where you just say your address and it deciphers it. I have an address that is very hard to pronounce, and needs to be spelled for anyone (usually multiple times) that isn't familiar with the particular street. Anyway, I did my best to pronounce it clearly, and the system thought for a second and then replied "confirm underscore one".

    I just hung up at that point and called back and went straight to a representative.

     

    (sorry for the thread hijack :))



  •  At least the guy entered some data into the cms; I have written a few websites that were left alone the moment they have been uploaded onto the production server.

    Once I forgot to give the guy his admin password. There were 3 products on the page. He never even called to ask "oh and how do I add products?", or how to do anything at all with it.  

    People are stupid.

    I wasn't even a student back then, I was in highschool, so it was basically just a hack-together job like we all know them from back then. There was nothing contractual about it: he just stated what he wanted, and I simply (and seemingly incorrectly) interpreted what he wanted to have into something technical. There was no 'spec' (which is one of the worst crimes in software development) except the spoken words, much less any documentation reviewed by multiple parties to agree upon.

    The demo was indeed the point where a problem like this would be expected to surface. However my guess is that he wasn't paying much attention to the real functionality, just that notions like "can I add contents in three clicks?". He must have thought by then the automagic translator was under the languages button, even though clearly an input field was visible when I showed him.

    In the end I guess I should be glad there was nothing contractual or official about it, because as you say if I would have been a few years older and we would have a contract, the situation could have been more 'serious'.

    Oops, I didn't see your reply as you apparently posted it while I was writing my previous post. :-)

    Something like this has happened to me as well once, but in that case it was a huge benefit. For that specific client I used Mambo, added an account for myself as administrator and one for the clients as 'author', so they could add, edit and update pages. The client however found it way too difficult to adjust their own website so every time an update was required they mailed me to do it instead. And every time I could cash on the time it took to make revise the content (times one hundred, naturally) and they wouldn't mind.

    I second your last line, though.

    Vor einigen Jahren habe ich einige Arbeiten auf der Seite durch die
    Schaffung von Websites für Einzelpersonen und kleine Unternehmen,
    wollte eine billige Website. Diese Arbeit bestand meist nur ein CMS,
    wobei eine Vorlage und Hacking ihnen zusammen. Die Bezahlung war nicht
    hoch, die Ergebnisse wurden besch.eiden am besten, aber sowohl die
    Kunden und ich waren zufrieden.

    Eines Tages jedoch, ein
    Client kam zu mir und er wollte etwas mehr. Er wollte eine Website, die
    mehrere Sprachen unterstützt. Sein Unternehmen war in den Verkauf Teile
    für Maschinen und er war vor allem in das Vereinigte Königreich. In
    jüngster Zeit jedoch hat er eine deutsche erworben Business Partner und
    wurde über die Planung gehen immer internationaler. So schön für unsere
    Freunde in Deutschland und den Ländern, die im Anschluss an, er wollte
    seine Website in ihrer Muttersprache.

    Mit meiner uber PHP 3
    Fähigkeiten begann ich Hacken zusammen den Code. Er wollte nicht, dass
    alles Lust, nur das Erstellen neuer Seiten und füllt sie mit Inhalt.
    Wenn er wollte etwas mehr in die Zukunft, sagte er, er würde mit mir
    oder jemand anderes von dieser Zeit und bekommen es erneuert. Nicht ein
    Problem. Also schrieb ich eine einfache CMS-System, um neue Seiten,
    füllen sie mit Inhalt und speichern Sie sie an eine Datenbank. Ich eine
    Funktion implementiert, um eine Sprache pro Seite zu bearbeiten, dass
    die Seite in der gewählten Sprache. Nehmen wir an, wir wählen Deutsch,
    können Sie dann bearbeiten Sie die deutsche Version der Seite. Auf der
    Website gab es einen prominenten und engagierten Sprache-Option, so
    dass Besucher könnte leicht wählen Sie die Sprache ihrer Wahl, und
    zeigen Sie die Seite in dieser Sprache. Auch für den Administrator
    wurde die Fähigkeit, neue Sprachen, so dass, wenn er einen Deal mit
    jemandem aus den USA, sie könnten es in ihrer Sprache (* wink wink *).


    Ich hatte mehrere Überprüfung Sitzungen mit dem Kunden, und er erwähnt
    es war alles perfekt und wie er es erwartet hatte. Also nach etwa zwei
    Monaten nach der Codierung, war ich getan und Einsatz der Website, und
    ich habe gezahlt. Der Client startete sie Content hinzufügen und alles
    war gut.

    Allerdings, etwa die Hälfte einen Monat später, der
    Kunde kontaktiert mich per Telefon und klang wütend. Er hatte worden
    war, hatte ich auf ihn betrogen und er wollte sein Geld zurück. Ich
    habe versucht zu beruhigen ihn und fragte ihn, was war. Gab es einen
    Fehler im System? Hat sie seinen Inhalt löschen? Oder noch schlimmer,
    habe es irgendwie infizieren seine Kunden mit Viren? Ich konnte nur
    erahnen. Er lud mich zu diskutieren das Problem, so dass ich ging.


    Wenn ich es, er hat mir gezeigt, die Website habe ich, und einige der
    Inhalte, schrieb er. Alles war auf der Suche gut, so dass ich noch
    keine Ahnung, was die Aufregung war. Er hat dann eine andere Sprache
    ausgewählt. Ich habe bereits bemerkt dann, dass er nicht nur
    hinzugefügt Deutsch, aber ein Haufen von vielen anderen Sprachen. Ich
    dachte, er war besetzt mit einem Übersetzer wahrscheinlich, um das
    Beste aus der neuen Website und bekommen es in eine Menge von Sprachen,
    nur um sicher zu gehen. Er wählte Französisch und eine leere Seite
    angezeigt werden, zeigt eine Meldung, dass der Inhalt war noch nicht in
    diese Sprache übersetzt. Er bellte mich an ", die noch nicht
    übersetzt!? Wie lange wird das dauern?". Ich habe nicht verstanden, in
    diesem Moment, ich dachte, es war etwas nicht in Ordnung mit dem Skript
    der Datenbank.

    Er fuhr fort, um ein paar andere Sprachen und
    ein paar andere Seiten, die alle die gleichen Nachricht (Ich habe es so
    wäre es die Nachricht auch in der gewählten Sprache, und in Englisch
    als Fallback, wenn keine Fehlermeldung angezeigt wurde, dass in
    Sprache). Also habe ich übernahm, ging an die Verwaltung Panel, Auswahl
    einer Seite und dann ausgewählte Deutsch. Nr. Inhalt war es, so fragte
    ich ihn, ob er in die Inhalte in deutscher Sprache für diese Seite, und
    wenn das Problem war, dass der Inhalt hat irgendwie verschwinden?
    "Eingetragen den Inhalt in Deutsch!? Ich weiß nicht einmal, Deutsch!"


    Es dauerte nur ein paar Sekunden aus, dann um zu erkennen, dass es nie
    seine Absicht war, um Inhalte in verschiedenen Sprachen. Er wollte nur
    drücken Sie "Add new Sprache" und alle bestehenden Inhalte wurde
    automatisch übersetzt. Und dass, wenn er eine neue Seite, wäre es
    übersetzt auf alle vorhandenen Sprachen. Ich erklärte ihm, dass war gar
    nicht möglich, in zwei Monaten Arbeit und £ 800. Er wies mich, bellt
    mich, während ich aus dem Gebäude, es war falsch von mir zu betrügen
    ihn in dieser.

    Wenn ich Besuch seiner Website über eine Woche
    später zu sehen, wie er das Problem gelöst, extranous Ströme von
    Engrish begrüßte mich in mehreren Sprachen (Ich weiß zufällig, ein
    wenig von deutschen und niederländischen mich). Ich vermute, am Ende
    fanden sie ihre Übersetzer, wahrscheinlich etwas namens entlang der
    Linien von "Google".

    Some
    years ago I did some work on the site by creating websites for

    was primarily in the United Kingdom. Lately, however, he has acquired a
    German business partner and was on the planning go more international.
    So nice for our friends in Germany and the countries that followed, he
    wanted his site in their mother tongue.

    With my skills about
    PHP 3, I started chopping up the code. He did not want anything like,
    just to create new pages and fills them with content. If he wanted
    something more in the future, he said he would contact me or someone
    else from this time and get it renewed. Not a problem. So I wrote a

    that page in the chosen language. Suppose we select German, you can
    then edit the German version of the page. On the website there was a

    declined.

    If I do, he showed me the site I have, and some of
    the content, he wrote. Everything was looking good, so I have no idea
    what the commotion was. He then has a different language. I've already
    noticed then that he not only added German, but a bunch of many other
    languages. I thought he was busy with a translator is likely to get the
    most from the new site and get it in a lot of languages, just to be
    sure. He chose French and a blank page, displays a message that the
    content was not yet translated into this language. He barked at me ",
    which has not yet translated? How long will this take?". I did not
    understand, at this moment, I thought there was something wrong with
    the script of the database.

    He went on to a few other
    languages and a few other pages that contain all the same message (I
    did it so it would be the message in the chosen language and in English
    as a fallback if no error message was that language ). So I took over,
    went to the administration panel, select a page and then select German.
    No content was there, so I asked him if he's content in German language

    Actually, it's not a bad back-translation, the German text is worse, but if you read it, you'll notice that somewhere "I got paid" was translated into "I've paid". Minor mistake, I'm sure.

    I was hoping to be funny if not slightly amusing by taking that English bit, Dutching it, and then Englishing it again. Hoe broken can we make it! Ha! Ha!

    But what actually happened is that the English improved. O_O

    Vor einigen Jahren arbeitete ich ein wenig nebenher, indem ich Webseiten für Privatpersonen und kleine Unternehmen erstellte. Diese Arbeit bestand hauptsächlich daraus, einfach ein CMS und ein Template zu nehmen und diese zusammenzuhacken. Die Bezahlung war nicht hoch, die Ergebnisse höchst schrottig aber die Kunden und ich waren gleichermaßen zufrieden.

    Eines Tages kam jedoch ein Kunde zu mir, und er wollte etwas mehr. Er wollte eine Webseite, die mehrere Sprachen unterstützte. Sein Unternehmen verkaufte Maschinenteile und war hauptsächlich in Großbritannien aktiv. Kurz zuvor hatte er sich allerdings einen deutschen Geschäftspartner angeschafft und plante, internationaler zu werden. Also wollte er unseren lieben Freunde in Deutschland und den darauf folgenden Ländern seine Webseite in ihrer Muttersprache präsentieren.

    Mit meinen 1337-PHP-Skills fing ich an, den Code zusammenzuhacken. Er wollte nichts ausgefallenes, nur neue Seiten erzeugen und sie mit Inhalt füllen. Solle er zukünftig noch mehr wollen, sagte er, würde er dann mich oder jemand anderen kontaktieren und es neu machen lassen. Kein Problem. Also schrieb ich ein einfaches CMS-System, das neue Seiten erstellen, sie mit Inhalt füllen und sie in die Datenbank speichern konnte. Ich implementierte ein Feature, dass einen eine Sprache für eine Seite auswählen ließ, um sie in dieser Sprache zu bearbeiten. Also du wählst Deutsch und kannst dann die deutsche Version der Seite bearbeiten. Auf der Webseite war eine nicht zu übersehender Sprachauswahlmöglichkeit, sodass Besucher einfach die Sprache ihrer Wahl auswählen, und dann die Seite in dieser Sprache anzeigen lassen konnten. Auch gab es für den Administrator die Möglichkeit, neue Sprachen hinzuzufügen, sodass, sollte er einen Handel mit jemandem aus den USA abschließen, jene das in ihrer Sprache betrachten könnten (*zwinker zwinker*).

    Ich hatte verschiedene Besprechungssitzungen mit dem Kunden und er erwähnte, alles sei perfekt und wie er es erwartet hatte. Also war ich nach etwa zwei Monaten des Codens fertig und setzte die Webseite auf und wurde bezahlt. Der Kunde fing an, Inhalt einzufügen und alles war gut.

    Etwa einen halben Monat später kontaktierte mich der Kunde allerdings per Telefon und klang wutentbrannt. Er sei reingelegt worden, ich häbe ihn betrogen und er wolle sein Geld zurück. Ich versuchte, ihn zu beruhigen und fragte ihn, was los war. Gab es einen Bug im System? Löschte es seinen Inhalt? Oder, schlimmer, infizierte es seine Kunden irgendwie mit Viren? Ich konnte nur raten. Er lud mich ein, vorbeizukommen und das Problem zu diskutieren, also ging ich.

    Als ich dort ankam, zeigte er mir die Webseite, die ich gemacht, und einiges von dem Inhalt, den er geschrieben hatte. Alles sah gut aus, also hatte ich immer noch keine Ahnung, wobei er bei dem Brimborium ging. Er wählte dann einen andere Sprache aus. Ich hatte bereits bemerkt, dass er nicht nur deutsch, sondern auch eine Menge anderer Sprachen hinzugefügt hatte. Ich dachte, er hätte sich vielleicht mit einem Übersetzer beschäftigt, um das beste aus der neuen Webseite herauszuholen und sie in viele Sprachen zu übersetzen, nur um sicherzugehen. Er wählte französisch und eine leere Seite öffnete sich, die eine Meldung zeigte, dass der Inhalt in diese Sprache noch nicht übersetzt worden sei. Er bellte mich an: "Noch nicht übersetzt!? Wie lange wird das dauern??" Ich verstand das zu diesem Zeitpunkt nicht, ich dachte, etwas mit dem Skript der Datenbank sei falsch.

    Er fuhr damit fort, ein paar andere Sprachen und ein paar andere Seiten auszuwählen, die alle dieselbe Meldung zeigten (Ich richtete es so ein, dass die Meldung auch in der gewählten Sprache erschien, oder auf englisch als Ersatz, wenn die Meldung in dieser Sprache nicht definiert war). Also übernahm ich, ging in die Administrationsumgebung, wählte eine Seite und wählte dann deutsch. Es gab keinen Inhalt dort, also fragte ich ihn, ob er den deutschen Inhalt für diese Seite eingegeben häbe, und ob das Problem wäre, dass der Inhalt irgendwie verschwunden wäre? "Den Inhalt in deutsch eingegeben!? Ich kann nichtmal deutsch!"

    Von da ab hat es nur noch Sekunden gedauert bis ich erkannte, dass er nie die Absicht gehabt hatte, den Inhalt in verschiedenen Sprachen einzugeben. Er wollte nur "Neue Sprache hinzufügen" drücken und aller existierender Inhalt würde automatisch übersetzt. Und dann wenn er eine neue Seite erstellen würde, würde diese automatisch in alle existierenden Sprachen übersetzt. Ich erklärte ihm, dass das mit zweimonatiger Arbeit und 800£ nicht möglich sei. Er verabschiedete mich und bellte mir beim Verlassen des Gebäudes nach, dass es falsch von mir war, ihn so zu betrügen.

    Als ich seine Webseite zirka eine Woche später besuchte um zu sehen, wie er das Problem gelöst hätte, begrüßten mich fremdartige Ströme von Denglisch in mehreren Sprachen (Ich kann zufällig selbst etwas deutsch und Niederländisch). Ich nehme an, dass sie schlussendlich ihren Übersetzer gefunden haben, vermutlich irgendwo aus der Umgebung "Google".

    Actually fixed that for you.

    Oh my god, I can't believe I just spent an hour translating this into German to post it in a forum where I'm probably one of a handful people with the ability to understand German... I do need to get a life -.-



  •  Is it meor has google translator's quality increased dramatically recently? I mean the translation isn't exaclty fantastic, but its perfectly readable and understandable. Try to translate anything into anything one year ago just seemed to yield random jibberish.

     I recently read a Swedish blog post translated by google, and the quality was also really good. There was an occasional incorrect sentence, but none of the sentences were unintelligible.



  • @TGV said:

    so I asked him if he's content in German language
    for this page

     "I'm content in German, but in French I suddenly get another feeling, not to mention in Swahili, the whole world turns red in Swahili!"

     "News report: police investigates killing by a crushed head on a computer monitor. Teenage suspect declares: 'I was just trying to get the content on the page!'"

  • Translating to chinese and then back is more fun. Now he has to pay for the male sterile lines that he made:

    A few years ago, I have done some work on the web site set up for individuals and small businesses, it is necessary to cheaper sites. This is mainly a male sterile line, together with the templates and hackers. Wages are not high, the worse the outcome of the best, and my customers are satisfied.

    One day, however, a client came to me, he would like more things. He would like a website to support multiple languages. His company has sold the mechanical parts, he is in the United Kingdom. However, recently he has been Germany's business partners, and plan to more internationalization. As a result, good for our friends in Germany and the state, and secondly, he hopes his Web site in their mother tongue.

    With my ability to PHP 3, I began to cut the code. He does not want something like that just to create a new page and fill them. If he wants more in the future, he said that he will work with me or others from the time and was extended. Is not a problem. Therefore, I wrote a simple system of male sterile lines of the new page to fill their content and save it to a database. I implemented a function of each language web pages to modify the language of choice. If we choose to Germany, then you can edit the German version of the page. On the site has a prominent and exclusive language of choice, so that visitors can easily select their choice of language, the language and display web pages. Even the system administrator has the ability, a new language, therefore, be dealt with if it came from the United States, they may find that their own language (* wink wink *).

    I have several review meetings with clients, and he mentioned it, everything is perfect, as he expected. As a result, after about two months after the code, my Web site, I have to pay. Clients began to increase and that all is well.

    However, about half a month's time, customer contact by telephone and sent me angry. He, I deceived him and his hope that he will make a come back. I would like to calm down and he asked him if he knew. Are there loopholes in the system? Do they delete the contents? Or more, some infected with the virus and their customers? I can only guess. He invited me to discuss this issue, so I went.

    If I do, he told me that I have a Web site, and some, he wrote. Everything looks good, so I do not know what the commotion. Then, he has a different language. I have already noted that then, he said, not only German, but a group of many other languages. I thought he was busy with the translation may be up to the new location, so many languages, but in order to determine. He chose France and a blank page, showing the contents of the message have not translated into the language. He shouted to me ", which has not yet been translated? How long this?." I do not understand, at this point in time, I think what is wrong with the script's database.

    He was also a small number of other languages and a number of other pages, contains all the same information (I have done, this information will be chosen English as a language and an error message if there is no back-up language). So, I took over, the management team, select a page and then select German. All content, so I asked him if he deposits in the German page, if the problem is that I do not know the content has disappeared? "In Germany by the content of? I do not Germany!"

    Only a few seconds, and then to realize that this is never intended to, the content of different languages. He only wanted to "new language" and all existing content has been automatically translated. If a new page, which will be available in all languages change. I explained that he can not be considered to be the work of two months, 8,000,000 pounds, he directed me to my door, and my building, which is wrong, I cheated him.

    When I click on its Web site about a week to see how he solved the problem, extranous mobile Engrish in several languages to welcome me (I happen to know a little bit, Germany and the Netherlands box). I think they finally found their own translation, may be more or less what the so-called "Google." In fact, this is not a bad back to the German translation of the text is bad, but if you read it, you will find a "I have to pay" is "I have to pay." Small mistakes, and I'm sure.
