    Feel free to submit a response to the form. We have members who are fluent in French and are able to check through your work when you are finished and help you improve it. :)

    As I said in the thread, we are a team for a reason. We help each other improve the translations we have made so they can have the best quality possible. That being said, you can definitely help us out.

    No offence and all, and I may be very wrong here: but I've had French for 7 years now and just like you I'm not fluent at all.

    Even though we may have been taught different level of French, I'm sure they're not teaching you Minecraft related French

    I've been learning it since I was 2, you can become fluent at it with just a few years of learning, if you have a high enough French education level. And if anything, I could help. \o/

    You've been learning it for 13 years, and as I've been taught in psychology, the younger a child is, the easier it'll be to teach languages and to teach in general

    Since you've been learning since you were age 2, I'm assuming it was one of the languages you spoke at home or spoke frequently (at daycare e.g.)
    All in all, having a couple of hours of French per week at school is not comparable to speaking a language since you were 2 years old

    It really depends on your methods of studying a certain language. For example, a person who actively uses French every day for 5 years is probably going to know this language better than a person who has been barely using it for 7 years. In both situations, you are 'studying' French, but one of the methods is a lot better than the other and will give a better result at the end. So I just don't see what were you trying to tell us with your message.
    Also, I don't see how Minecraft French is so much different than the normal French. I personally can't think of anything that can't be translated using normal French, and that we need to translate on the server.

    If he thinks he is able to translate in French, he's more than welcome to submit a response to the form.
    Please don't get off-topic. I didn't leave the thread open for such things to be posted on it. ;D

    Nah, only ever spoke it in school and the very basics from being taught at home, because my parents knew they were going to put me in a french school. Nowadays I take 4-5 hours of french a week and never speak it anywhere else, e.g. online or at home. I admittedly only take it because I'm supposed to for school, and even then I still speak it very well.
    I mean, I have not spoken French anywhere outside of school in the last 9~ years tbh. Funnily enough, the only language I spoke a lot since I was 2 and I still do, and we use everyday in our household, (Arabic) I still suck at it anyway, especially when you compare it to my French and English. >.>
    ^^ That too.
    When I translated my first thread, I never had learned the word "ban" in French, so that is an example, "piston", "cobblestone", "Depth strider", etc. But, even then, it's not 'Minecraft French', just 'Words-that-are-more-frequent-in-Minecraft-but-in-French.'


    Anyways, again, I have a lot of free time (sometimes) and would love to spend that on helping people with evaluating on their French translations. hmu pls im bored af

    Speaking and translating multiple languages is a skill that is worth money. Cubecraft isn't paying you, so them expecting professional level translation and work attitude isn't realistic anyway.

    And literally the first things you "win" from joining the translation team = A good opportunity to practice skills such as language skills and teamwork skills, while being surrounded by pleasant people.

    Seems like you are the perfect candidate to me.

    Yeah, which is why it takes me literally months to translate basically anything at all. =P I don't dedicate myself to this, I just do it for my own fun. Plus, it's a way for me to evaluate on my
    ---
    I, really, just do it for fun. Takes me a hell load of a time to finish anything, mainly because I don't get paid for it, but when I do it I just do it for fun. Translators (as far as I know) can earn up to 20$/day, do you really expect Cube to do that? Lmao


    Edit: According to this very random site I found, (http://www.translationrules.com/translator-salaries-by-language/)
    A translator can earn up to 34$/hour in some states of the US. *shrugs*
    --
    Also, my French translation, according to this random word-counter website, is ``3,609 words 22,722 characters'';
    Considering I can earn 0.1$/word, that's a grand total of 361$, but of course, Cube can't afford that. They can't even afford fixing the Infected game mode, lmao

    I'm very aware it is, but just because it is pinned, that doesn't guarantee members will be noticing it all the time. They will notice it only if they visit the Everything Else sub forum. After I bump it, the thread appears in the new posts section, and that makes the chances of new people seeing it even higher. (For a short amount of time, but it costs me nothing to try.)
