Favor needed - a small translation job
« on: September 07, 2005, 11:22:37 AM »
Hi guys, I'd need a favor. ;)

I'd need the following paragraph translated asap:

Avast! Antivirus U3 Edition provides comprehensive protection of your U3 smart drive against viruses and malware infections from a host machine. From home use to the office; university or school to an internet café, avast! lets you use your U3 smart drive knowing your data is safe from infection.


Namely, I'd need to translate this to the following languages: French, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese and Traditional Chinese.

(no other languages are needed)


Do you think you could help me out?


Thanks a bunch,
Vlk

Better if you send an email directly to Iso-G.

The german translations are quite bad, I guess they were done thru some online translation utility :-P

Here my version:
german:
Avast! Antivirus U3 Edition liefert einen umfassenden Schutz für Ihren U3 Smart Drive gegen Malware und Vireninfektionen, die von einem Host ausgehen können. Vom Heimanwendergebrauch bis hin zum Büro; von der Universität oder Schule bis hin zum Internet Café - avast! lässt Sie Ihren U3 Smart Drive benützen, mit der Kenntnis, dass Ihre Daten vor Malwarebefall sicher sind.

italian:
Avast! Antivirus U3 Edition fornisce una protezione completa per il Vostro smart drive U3 contro virus e infezioni di malware da pc remoti. Adatto per l’uso domestico o l’uso in ufficio, per università, scuole o internet café - avast! vi permetterà di usare il Vostro smart drive U3 sapendo che i Vostri dati sono al sicuro.


some little changes could anyway still be needed.
