Hello! It is my goal for 2023 to translate LibreOffice into Cherokee.
That's a great goal for you language and for LibreOffice :)
It looks like there are no previous nor current translations in weblate so
I'll have to start from the ground up. I've read a few of the articles on the
wiki and I think the following is enough to get the ball rolling.
For Weblate, pleas let me know your username there, then I can create
the language group. Cherokee already exists on Weblate, we need to
populate the project there:
Do you know any other software already translated in Cherokee? First
thing I could think is having the Romanized form as extended tips.
Not sure what is possible, Christian is currently on vacation, but I'll
discuss with him when he is back.
Native Syllabary: ᏣᎳᎩ
Romanized with phonetic breaks: Tsa-la-gi
ISO 639-2: chr
ISO 639-3: chr
It is polysynthetic language, written from left to right.
It spoken in by the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians (UKB) in Oklahoma,
the Cherokee Nation (CN) in Oklahoma and the Eastern Band of Cherokee
Indians (EBCI) in North Carolina.
There are dialectical differences and I will focused on what is
taught and spoken in North Carolina.
While the native script is supported by Unicode and LibreOffice Writer
(tested on GNU+Linux),
most real life signage typically has both English and Cherokee side by
may bold certain syllables in the Romanized form to aid with enunciation.
If possible I would like to do something similar in LibreOffice.
Hopefully this will lower
the learning curve and give a lower barrier for self teachers.
It would make navigating the menus... interesting. I'm open to
suggestions on how to best to do this.
Perhaps two translations projects/entries would be necessary one for
the native and one for the Romanized?
Both the Tri-Council and UNESCO have acknowledged that the Tsalagi is
critically endangered so anything that would help "learning while
using" would be worth while.
