Hacker News is like a deity sometimes – ye ask and ye shall receive.
A couple of days ago, I had a phone call that convinced me I needed to internationalize my App Store description. To do this, I used the magic of the internet and social networks, most notably Hacker News.
From this post, some wonderful hackers created and even double-checked versions in Dutch, German, French, and Swedish. I also got a version in Spanish from my friend, which the users on HN found a small mistake in.
While it was a lot of hassle getting passed all the scamsters on Mechanical Turk, I also got some useful translations from that service (for $7 each), including Italian and Chinese. However, I am just a little suspicious of the Chinese.
Do you think this document is real Chinese? There is significant variation with the Google auto-generator and it’s way different than Babelfish. I’m a little suspicious because there are chunks that are exactly the same as Google Translate: http://translate.google.com
Can anyone out there confirm this Chinese is good? Here is the document with the translation inline.
