The Chinese cubing community is really big and I imagine there are plenty of people in it who either can't read English or who will be deterred by an English-language program. But I don't think only English speakers deserve to use qqTimer. So the project - and it is meant as a community project, really - is to translate all the text in qqTimer into Chinese. I don't even know how to type Chinese characters so I imagine I wouldn't be able to do much on my own

If you'd like to help, I'd request that you be good enough at reading English to understand typical written stuff and English cubing jargon, and fluent (fully understand grammar, idioms, etc) in written Chinese and in Chinese cubing jargon. I'm sure there are a few people like this here :)

Notes:
- I think I will remove joke scrambles (will anyone in China understand the joke? maybe not)
- If you see someone's name, don't translate it unless they are known as something else in the Chinese cubing community.
- The help file will be removed unless some insane person wants to translate it.
- Do not translate numerals (0123456789), just leave them written out.

This is the list of things that need translating (let me know if something is missing). It is a bit long. If you want to help out, you don't have to translate all of it.

Well, I did a few there, although it would be nice if someone more fluent in Chinese than me could double-check some of them. ;)

By the way, qqwref, there are two types of Chinese, Traditional and Simplified. Hong Kong and Taiwan use Traditional and people from mainland China use Simplified. I'm not sure if you're planning on making two versions or not, but yeah. :confused:

I used Traditional characters btw.

Some things are just too lol to translate. And some translations are just lol. And omgx3's translations are lol, (s)he translated the only puzzles that didn't need translations - they become stupider to read after "translation." I refered to the WCA regulations for technical stuff.

Yeah, I didn't think they needed translating either, cuz stuff like 3x3x5, 2x2x4 becomes weird-sounding once translated and will look cluttered in the timer list, but I did it anyway. :p
