    Translation into Russian

    Hello, my name is Vladimir Yurkin
    I will be happy to work with you to translate your CrewChief, if you will allow me. Is it possible? Many Russian racers will be very pleased. We will make the most effort to realize this. Sincerely, Vladimir.

    Privet Vladimir,

    This is awesome news. Just one suggestion, before beginning, check out how many sounds are there and see if you can commit to project of such a scale. c:\Users\[user]\AppData\Local\CrewChiefV4\sounds\

    Programmatically, we'll need to do some special changes because as far as I imagine it won't sound natural in Russian to say "last lap was at one fifty six", but it shouldn't be enormous change (of course, we need to check with our CEO).

    There's Italian translation somewhere already.

    I found his page:
    https://forum.simracing.su/topic/438...mitry-eniseev/
    He's got some progress.

    I was thinking to make to make the same with professional speakers, but with the names it will be a big project. I don't know how much money it will require.

    But there will be problems with translation. The rules of the English language are very different from the Russian ones. In addition to another sequence of words in Russian, we also have cases. There are 6 of them.
    And the difference is in the ending of the plurals.
    For example, the word "percent" is translated as "procent", "procenta" (plural), "procentov" (plural).
    Example of phrases in Russian:
    1 procent
    3 procenta
    5 procentov
    13 procentov
    43 procenta
    etc

    We cannot say "43 procentov" instead of "43 procenta" etc

    A Russian-speaking person will understand what is at stake. This is not critical. It just doesn't look pretty.

    Maybe if you could give me the source code of the application or where I could fix it.

    I know what you mean. There are cases for numbers. In Russian there are 4 (as I remember), but, for instance in Arabic there are 5.

    I guess, you may try to find a simple way but make it understandable, not correct. To make it correct it will require changes in base framework.
    I'm not sure that's the way.

    Anyway, it worth to highlight that to devs, there are might ability to use different cases.

    Wish you strength to finish the pack, Dmitriy.

    Possibly this is the source code what you are looking for, Dmitry
