I think I sent them to Esa S. a couple of months ago when he was still in charge - nevermind, he'll certainly have got it and even if not, it was only a few very minor things. I must say that the German translations have gone way better over time. You should have seen them a year ago..!

The poll (main page)!

Post by Kraftwerk » Fri Feb 12, 2010 2:02 pm

the translation into german on the voting button is incorrect. It says "stimme". This is the translation for "vote", but it´s not the verb. to ask someone to vote is"stimme ab".

But as the poll itself is in english, it may should remain in english.

I´ve already contacted the support,but they didn´t react. So maybe i´m wrong. So i´ve decided to get more opinions.

translation

As far as I am aware WOT translations are available because they link to Google AJAX Language API so all translations are done via Google and not because there are separate coded pages per language available.

But not the choosen languages. The poll is not translated by google, soi think the button is not translated by google also.

I actually answered your support mail and said that I will pass the information to our translators. Our original plan was to update translations on January but it was delayed. It means that I haven't been able to ask their opinion in this particular translation.

Since I don't speak German I can't know which translation is grammatically the best. For this reason I left the current translation intact. Would someone confirm that "Stimme ab" is indeed the best translation for "Vote" in this situation?

Credibility of WOT in serious question

Post by aggro » Sat Feb 13, 2010 4:00 pm

I'm fast getting to the point where I remove WOT from my browsers because of warnings and alerts that are flagrantly false and undeserved. When I check the ratings, comments, etc, I see a handful of posters who consistently rate good sites poorly, who are outvoted many times over by positive comments and votes, yet the miniscule minority rating prevails.

I can see some serious legal challenges in WOT's future if this imbalance continues.

Rate URLs on forums

Maybe WOT should allow rating URLs on forum posts so that you know not to click the URL if the site is shown to be bad.

You could encourage the forum to incorporate WOT's widget or API so that all links show WOT's icon, even to those who do not have WOT installed.
