I noticed a lot translation have been changed for Chinese Simplified during recently discourse updates.
Not sure if it’s a result of the mentioned agency.
Those updated translation are not very wrong, but genereally we use specical set of words to describe behaviors in a forum.
For example, for
js.topic.suggest_create_topic, the translation used to be like “ready to start a new topic?” and after the update, it’s more like “ready to start a new conversation/chat”.
And, the word
category, used to be much like the word itself in English, now became a more formal word like “classification”.
I feel the change is very strange and should not be applied, also doubt if the agency is aware of the translations are going to be applied on a forum.
