    How do I know it worked? Do I actually have to cut and paste from the Original to the Translation or is it really as simple as picking another language and submitting it? I tried translating and English article into Spanish and Japanese but in the 'Translation' side it still appears, even after picking a different language, in English.

  16. reneg88
    reneg88 ·

    hmm... the 'translate this article' button is not doing anything for me... it doesn't take me to the Backend page to translate...

  17. spoeker
    spoeker ·

    if I translate my own, will I get 15 piggies till monday? 10 for the translation and 5 for the article? Just wondering...did one today :)

  18. fash_on
    fash_on ·

    nothing happened at my end either ??

  19. fash_on
    fash_on ·

    I think I misunderstood? There is no button that does a magic translation, we have to manually enter our translated text into the Translation side of the tool?

  20. spoeker
    spoeker ·

    hmm "@cyan-shine - if an article has been translated already into a language that language will be taken out of the drop down so it cannot be translated twice. "
    I translated an artiel of mine, and my friend told me today that she tried the same in the same language..bug?
    So you know got 2 english translations for one german article....

  21. ritamiguel
    ritamiguel ·

    how do i know if the article has already been translated? and also, how do i know if i've won the piggies?

    I've done 4 piggies, where are they? I want to trust lomography but I need to know if I'm going to get my piggies!

  31. reneg88
    reneg88 ·

    well i put my full heart and soul trusting lomography as i translated many many MANY locations... but the piggies are supposed to be awarded when the articles get published... but we don't know how long will it take until they get published nor how we will know... so for now it's all a big fuzz... until the good lomo web people get back from their lovely weekend and give us some light! =)

  32. trashpilotin

    the ones I translated are still there in the language i translated them into... hm?

  39. -alia-
    -alia- ·

    LSI, i can see that you don't even check the translations before publish...a lot of grammatical errors, english basic errors, please... ~.~

  40. gabrielasoares
    gabrielasoares ·

    I translated over 6 articles and none of them were published yet -.-"

  41. a_kep
    a_kep ·

    still waiting..

  42. katzpe
    katzpe ·

    How do we know if our translations have been published?

  43. syyip22
    syyip22 ·

    no one care to answer our doubts here? i submitted a translation but i dont see it at anywhere but something like "we already have translation in ___ language" ... :(

    and also, 10 piggies promised but i only got 5 after i sent an email to request for it. should i continue to support??
