Languages of the CPC!
« on: 22:07, 17 April 15 »
Hi all friends of the CPC!


I'm curious to find out how much different languages CPC owners do speak. So best thing is maybe to make a poll and then see if we miss somebody.


Please participate! It will help the development of future multi-lingual games and out of curiosity anyway.  :) :laugh:

Nach bhfuil mé vótáil toisc nach bhfuil mo theanga liostaithe.

Bryce.

= I didn't vote because you haven't included my language (Irish, Celtic, Gaelic, Gaeilge, or whatever you prefer to call it)

P.s. We also have Danish, Norwegian, Belgian and Swedish users that probably won't be impressed with the list either, not to mention the fact that you forgot Greek!!!

Thanks Bryce, it's easy to forget languages. Any other idea appreciated.


I just wrote "Irish". But if there is a big difference in slang in Ireland, then let me know, and I will add.  :)

Ok, voted. Irish isn't a slang, it's a language, it just seems to have many names :D There are also several dialects, depending on whether you come from the east, west, south or Donegal (what the hell are you guys saying :D ). Then there is Scotish gaelic (probably several versions also) which are very similar on paper, but spoken completely different. Old languages = complicated.

What about people speaking more languages? as i understand more than one language, my games can also be in english, spain, french, netherlnds, suaheli, Afrikaans, php and perl 5. So maybe a multiple choice will be better to get the best "language" for use at games and programms.

@villain & Rolli Radio: It's about mother language, Bavarian is missing too. And Switzerduitsch and Austrian. Let's keep it a bit easy.  :)

It's about mother language.

That's what I wanted to point out. ;-) BTW, there's no Belgian language. They have a chance of speaking three different languages, depending from the region.

Belgian here... you know that Belgium at least has 2 different languages, all coming from neighbour countries, right ?


I mean flemmish is basicall Nederlands variant (just some strong accent) and Wallon is basically french with strong accent as well...


I suspect some poorly chosen choice of choices when you chose the options to choose from in the survey. remove your shoes when you use keyboard with feet.
 :laugh:


jokes appart, where are Cobol, Basic, C, Java and Python ?

also I love where the list Finnish.
