Translators: thanks for both translating the screensaver description page and for helping keep it up to date.

I've just corrected the English version and I'd like you to propagate these changes to the translations:

1) At the Hanford observatory the 4km interferometer is H1,
while the 2km interferometer is H2. I had it backwards.

2) I've listed the rotation speed keys as Ctrl-up arrow and Ctrl-down arrow,
since the > and < keys are in different positions on various
national keyboards.

Thanks for your efforts,

I have somebody I might tap if we don't get any other volunteers (my nephew).
But I don't think we need a translation to every language there is, but only those actively used in the BOINC community. If there is an active user base then we well get volunteers for a translation for that group. And I will add a section to the World Community forums. Someone just needs to ask for it.

Polish translation available at:
http://www.boincatpoland.org/einstein/starsphere.html

Got to refine some details (find Polish equivalents for RA and such), but it seems quite well for me.

Found something strange...
In both the german and french translations, there's a link to an italian translation that points to the original english text.
Is there an italian translation on the works for soon?

No, nobody has yet volunteered for Italian, which is why I removed
the link from the original English page.

Hi,
from the english html-source found the (commented) prepared link for polish and italian. The Polish has been done, my bad was thinking/hoping/guessing, an italian translation is on the road.

OK, will remove the "italian link" in the next few hour.

Edit?

Hmm. the initial version have been edited by so far 4 persons, two of them french native spoken. Word by word was cleared up..

Well I'm ready and open for suggestions. What I find a bad thing, when several people are doing the same..

Fellow Pirate [AF>France>Est>Lorraine] where is his contribution to the translation? everybody can take a already translated page, rearrange the items and propagate, this this or that is better..

Was reading the so called "edited" version, sorry was not finding something new to add.

It's on the way to move the pages to the teams server.

===============================================================

The change for the russian link is done on both pirates sites

AND as a pre pre preview, the both pages, changed a bid for Einstein

Please take a look and put HERE the suggestions, please ;-)

german link

french link

Good idea. I've made the changes, though I still want to get a screen shot showing the galaxies.

Well,

1) someone might choose to save the page before it's gone.
2) I need to do this anyway as a draft for E@H if/when the additions
go into the production version.

Can't you just backup/transfer the website to a safe place?
