Polish localization / translations

Ania_i_Filip   June 17, 2012, 06:52 PM

Hello Guys!

There are multiple mistakes in polish version of the site. Mostly grammar, sometimes spelling. Also content of shared link to pictures contains mistake, which is actually read not only by users of this site. Please correct. I can voluntary offer my help if you want.

Yet the service is the one i was looking for the last few months. Keep up the good work :)

Hi Ania -- and thank you for the kind words. We're happy that you like 23!

As for the Polish translation, it was originally done by a Polish 23 user and I unfortunately haven't been able to do quality checks myself. We are always looking for people to improve the translations though if you're interested?

Hi Steffen! I will go through the site to build a list of what seems to be incorrect. Then will send you suggestions and corrections. However, due to busy week I usually have more free time in the weekend. Hopefully will let you know in a week.

Ania is my beloved wife and this is our common account :)

Sorry about the naming, made I quick guess but can see now that it was wrong ;-)

I could let you have access to fix mistakes in the translation directly yourself?


Ania_i_Filip   June 21, 2012, 12:03 PM

OK, if you think it is easier :)

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   June 21, 2012, 12:06 PM

If you do a quick signup on, i'll make sure to give you access.

Hmm...I get the following error message when trying to register:
We had a problem with your input:

Unfortunatelly it does not say what is the reason. If this could help you, I entered login 'FilipO' and hit Submit at about 20:30 today.

Awesome -- I have upgraded your permissions and you can see how to tweak the mistakes on

Thank you so much for helping out!

Hello Steffen!

I went through the site and read all the texts. Then compared translations with english version, which I took as reference. Made 14 screenshots with possible places to fix. Unfortunatelly can't get to translation source through neither of the interfaces. I keep getting message: "Permission denied. You don't have permission to admin Localization." :/

Hi Filip,

Sorry that I'm stumbling around -- I managed to give the translation admin rights over to another Filip in the database. The mix-up has been corrected now though to you really should be able to make the fixes.

Hello Steffen!

I have finally managed to sit and focus on translation. Sorry for delay. Unfortunatelly I am bit disorganized due to vacations period. I saw about 300 untranslated messages in the system, yet left most because couldn't find reference in the website. Context of the sentence is relevent when it comes to polish:/ Also havn't found instances of 3 messages in translation. Provide me with an email if you want to see screenshots of these pages.


Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   July 30, 2012, 06:53 PM

Thanks Filip, we really appreciate the help! I have reviewed the changes and imported them in to 23 itself. Which three messages were you looking for?

Ania_i_Filip   August 02, 2012, 07:05 PM

These are:
- "Your username on Flattr" on photos onfiguration
- "See all the photos on 23"
