Need Help With Welcome Message

Post by Tachyon » Sat Feb 17, 2007 8:12 pm

Hello, everyone. I've been noticing a lot of visitors to Gears Online come from Bangkok, Thailand. I had my brother and sister-in-law translate the site's welcome message into Thai but I need help to make sure it's displaying correctly. If you're reading this, please go to:

http://www.gearsonline.net/

Scroll down a bit and look at the text above "Affiliated Sites". Is it in Thai or gibberish? It displays Thai text for me (I enabled Windows XP to display Thai). In Internet Explorer 7 the text is a proper paragraph but in FireFox the paragraph breaks into 4 lines.

Those of you who can speak Thai, would you please read the message and let me know if what it says is ok?

Thanks!

It's in Thai, though a bit formal for anime site intro :D .

This may work better for first paragraph, it isn't literally translation though.

Thanks, Kuruni. So I should replace the first paragraph with the one you typed?

Is the 2nd paragraph too formal or is it ok? I don't know Thai at all. I relied on my sister-in-law.

Yes, go ahead.

The second paragraph is alright in term of grammar, just abit unnatural :wink: . Lets I tweak it abit. I still keep formal tone since it should be more fit for general visitor.

Thanks! I'll try to revise it soon. Today I'm deep in SRW image scanning.

I thought the site was hacked. Thanks for the explanation, and I am glad that i is for such a good reason.

Ok, I put Kuruni's Thai text on the front page of Gears Online.
