For those of you who aren't aware, The GTA Place gets huge amounts of international traffic. While traffic from English speaking countries is remaining fairly consistent, traffic from numerous non-English ones is rising. Massively.

What we're finding is a large amount of these users only come here for the downloads, then they leave. In an effort to encourage some of these users to hang around a bit longer, I've decided to translate parts of the main website (into as many languages as you guys want).

Of course this is not something I can do myself. "Why not use Google Translate?" You might ask. Well it's nowhere near perfect, not for paragraphs of text where context is not understood. So, I need your help for this. In the second post is a list of the top 30 or so languages we see our visitors using, if you speak ANY of these, please let me know. The second post also contains the text we need translated, so if you like, just post the translations here and I'll get them up as soon as possible.

To anyone who will be providing translations: PLEASE ensure you've used correct spelling and grammar, and, if necessary, the proper alphabet (accents on letters, Cyrillic characters etc.)

Thanks to anyone who provides translation help, we'll give you some sort of translator honour for this :)

Text to translate

NOTES:
- Please leave the following things in English: GTA, The GTA Place, Grand Theft Auto
- Please use correct spelling and grammar, accents on letters if necessary etc.
- Formal or casual? This should be written fairly casually, as if you were talking to a friend.
- Where [language] is used you can write the name of your language, for example Português if you were doing the Portuguese translation.

By the way, the word "Portuguese" in Portuguese is Português :)

Dammit I just made a slight change to it again before you posted that, sorry! :P

That will still work though, and thanks, I actually meant for you to put Português where [language] was, should probably make that clear in the notes.

Thanks guys I'll have these languages up shortly. It would be helpful if you could guys could underline the words for the links though, especially for the non Latin or Germanic based languages since I can't even guess them, Finnish looks crazy!

@Evo: Google Translate? Is that reliable though, it all makes sense? Also can you write "Hindi" in Hindi where [language] is please :)

@little_homer: Using Google Translate for this but can you confirm Keskustelupalstalla = forums, kansainvälinen palsta = international forum, modaus osiolla = mod database? Because I need to know what to link :P

@Samil, Miles: LOL, I wish I knew enough to translate it myself. But no, I'm asking kokane since she's helped me with learning some stuff already. But I seem to have quite a few Romanian friends so it's no problem finding someone to translate :P

@Ivan: Thanks, Portugal is fairly high on the list so this would be useful.

I did single/couple of words at a time while checking the grammar. So yeah actual language knowledge + google translate = Quite reliable.

I did the underlining,etc. Will do the guest one in the morning, Translating in hard work when you have to do the text part too.

@Evo: lol ok thanks. This is ridiculous to write btw, I have to put in all the HTML entities instead of the actual "letters" or whatever you call them. Look at the source code of your post to see what I mean, luckily I can just copy and paste that :lol:

@little_homer: Ok great, thanks. If you look on the homepage now do you see the Finnish text? I'm currently doing this by IP address so it should detect you're in Finland - not always 100% reliable though.

@Samil: You can do the Romanian one if you want, kokane is kinda busy lol.
