Are you a native speaker/writer of Arabic, Chinese (Traditional), or Polish? Please help finish translating the new OnionShare. These languages are nearly complete and I'd love to include them!

Here is the OnionShare project on Weblate hosted.weblate.org/projects/on

@micahflee I have reviewed a bit the Polish translation, and it looks in some places it was machine translated, no?

@copyme it shouldn't have been, all of these translations should be by human translators. If there are bad translations could you improve them?

@micahflee well these are not terrible, but commas are missing here and there (in Polish you cannot really skip them), and sometimes the phrases sound artificial.

@micahflee but over all it does not look bad. Just in some places. Not a big deal.

@copyme I somewhat embarrassingly only speak English, so native speakers like you know best. If you think it's reasonably understandable for Polish speakers, then it's probably fine, but improvements are definitely always welcome

@micahflee I will try to see in depth tomorrow. I guess, it is a bit hard to propose a good translation without seeing the program. So, I should install it first. Now I need to focus preparing my research program :D Procrastination will not help me now 😜

@micahflee got to 107/193. Suggested quite a few fixes. These were mostly around anything related to auto-stop and auto-start timers, for some reason current translations use a rather antiquated term "czasomierz" a lot.

There are two things that need a standardized translation in PL:
- Tor Browser (left as-is, or translated as "Przeglądarka Tor")
- pluggable transports (translated as "transporty wtykowe" but that just sounds... weird).

@micahflee finally, the word "udział" ("share") sounds awkward in Polish, but as much as I try I cannot find a better translation, and in some cases there is no way to work around it.

I'll have a look at the remaining 86 strings later on.

Thank you for making this tool, it's essential to a lot of people (but you already knew that).

@micahflee done with the whole thing. All strings that don't pass checks have suggested versions that should. Let me know if I can be of any more help.

@micahflee
I'm slightly amused at "speaker of traditional Chinese". I know what you mean, and it's not a jab at you -- just unrelated levity. :)

@monsieuricon lol yeah, that's why I wrote speaker/WRITER of -- it was only like a year ago that I realized simplified/traditional Chinese were written languages only
