A reader sent in some proposed changes to the Spanish language
translation for Geeklog. I'm not sure who's in charge of the Spanish
translation, but I thought these might be relevant.  I (fairly
obviously) have no idea if what he states is correct or not...

Dear Sir,

First of all, thanks for the site. Perhaps, the best OS X site on the 
net!! I'm registered as urcindalo.

Second, as a spaniard, may I suggest you a correction for some of the 
translated text?

* "Next" is not "próximo" in your case, but "Siguiente".

* "Previous" should be "Anterior"

* When it says "N comentarios Envío más reciente" it should read "N 
comentarios El último es del..."

* "Preferencias de Noticias" should be "Preferencias de comentarios", 
as shown when you click on the link. Then, "Modo de visualización" 
should be "modo de presentación". The translated options are 
"Seguidos",  "Seguidos con jerarquía", "No se muestran", "Sólo el 

* On the same link, "¿Primero los más viejos o los más nuevos?" should 
be "¿Primero los más antiguos o los más recientes?" (viejo and nuevo 
are only for material things). Translated options are "Más recientes" 
and "Más antiguos".

* "Limite por comentario" should be "Límite por comentario" (note the 
accented í). Then, "El valor por defecto es 100" should be "El valor 
por misión es 100". Finally, "Grabar la información" is as simple as 
"Guardar" ;-)

* When you click on the corrected "Guardar", it now reads: "Sus 
preferencias para Comentarios han sido grabadas con éxito". But, 
instead it should read: "Sus preferencias para los comentarios se han 
guardado correctamente".

* "Enviar a un amigo" should be "Enviar a alguien".

* There a lot to be translated, yet. If you want, I can help you.

Again, thanks for a magnificient site,
