Hi Olli.
Yes some words we can shorten; others would lose meaning when shortened or could mean something else ;)

Thanks

Anthony

Hello,

This is not an official answer, just telling my opinion.

CanĀ“t you make the words any way smaller? is that possible in your language?

Example in Finnish lang we can use some shorter version of word.

Hi all,

The Bemba Translation Team is in the process of translating tuxpaint. One challenge we have so far is that Bemba is a very expressive language. This means some words are not fitting on the buttons on the left menu. Also the hint/instruction messages are also being truncated at the bottom pane as a result of some long translations (see attached). Do you have any specific ways of catering for languages such as our with long words and lengthy descriptions?

thanks

Anthony
