Re: [libreoffice-l10n] New video subtitles for translation: Join the LibreOffice community


Hi Mike;

I have prepared my own .srt for Icelandic with proper timings.

As I said in another post:
Many languages have different length of those sentences; at least in my case I had to split the segments differently from what you'd do for English.
I'm pretty sure there are other languages having this problem.

Proceeding now to fill in the wiki.

Best regards

Sveinn í Felli

P.S: not sure the list gets the attached .srt file. Hope you get it safely.

Yes, it's much better to translate the hand-written text on the wiki
rather than YouTube's attempt at automatic subtitles. Also, if you put
your translation on the wiki, others can see it and make any necessary
changes too!

There are other hilarious parts later in the file.
Imagine if you had, say, a Scottish accent?

Believe me, I had to tone down my northern English accent quite a lot as
well... In real life I sound a bit different :-)

Cheers,
Mike
