[FIXED] That's 正體中文, not 台灣語!

(roc) #1

Traditional Chinese is 正體中文 in Chinese, not that 台灣語.
Hope you guys will be correcting this stupid mistake.

I think the misunderstanding here is in referring to the language of countries (正體中文 vs 台灣語). For the written language, we should refer to either Traditional or Simplified Chinese characters, the latter being the official system in Mainland China (PROC).

The common variations appear to be:

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traditional_Chinese_character (正體字 / 繁體字 / 全體字)
  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simplified_Chinese_character (简化字 / 简体字)

We apologize for the error in our translation. We work hard at Piwik to ensure the translations undergo many checks for accuracy and completeness and any corrections are welcome.
This was not a ‘stupid mistake’ on the translator’s part. Roc, if you feel as if there is a misunderstanding, I would ask that you email me at translations@piwik.org and we can work it out. Our translators work very hard and their work is much appreciated.
As for this issue, we have both a Chinese and a Taiwanese translation at this time. It is my understanding that the translation for the Taiwanese language is 台灣語 and the translation for Chinese is 正體中文. Even though Taiwanese is a variant of Chinese, we still feel it warrants a separate translation. The only change I can see would be to use 臺灣話 instead of 台灣語, but that is left up to personal preference. At this point, I don’t think a correction is necessary.
If you have any more information for me, please email me at translations@piwik.org.
Thank you again for your input and thank you for using Piwik!

I am the Taiwanese (台灣語) language translator!
In fact, Taiwanese is really old Chinese language in China before 2000 years ago, in the era of Confucius!
Not too many people know that!
I use the Taiwanese (台灣語) language the name of this language, because my country is Taiwan, I am Taiwanese, not Chinese!
Will be complaining about this issue should be Chinese, not Taiwanese people!
