Amiga C Kurs in translation

Well. I've contacted the author of the "Amiga C Kurs für Einsteiger" (or as I would call it, "Amiga C Course for beginners") about translating it to English. For no other reason than that for 15 years, I've not contributed much to the Amiga at all, and at the same time, "everyone" says it's (one of) the easiest platforms to program for.

So far, I've not done much work, I've tranlated the introduction and parts of the first chapter, but then I'm using Babelfish for the rough quick translation, then hand-editing that to make it "proper" English.

Another reason for this, is that I believe people who don't speak German could benefit from the course.

And, ALL credit to Norman Walter, he's done ALL the hard work, I'll just be translating it.

I hope to get some encouragement from posting this... Zetro, keep out :P (J/K, mate)

Cool, good work! Is there a table of contents and what AmigaOS (1.x/2.x/3.x) it is mainly written for? My main problem while coding in C on the Amiga is various examples are all written for different OS versions (or compilers), so using what is appropriate is sometimes a bit of a mess. And not all examples follow the correct guidleines.

The original is using the StormC v3 package, which is on the Amiga Developer 2.1 CD. Which is for OS3.5

Actually, I've got some feedback from Walter, he says something along the lines of "apart from some strange grammar....." which I believe, in part due to Babelfish, and partly due to me being Norwegian, is to blame. I'm therefore hereby requesting ONE person to proofread a bit for me. This will mostly involve just correcting my typos and bad grammar, I don't think it'll be much worse than that.

The finished translation should then be sent back to Walter for approval.

Any takers?

btw, the original can be found here. I will take screenshots of my english installation to confirm with the German version, and have an "identical" version for the non-german-skeaping population of the world of Amigafans.

oh, and I'm working on the FIFO principal: First In First Out.

Okays, I've been slacking the past week, mostly due to me mom visiting from Norway and I've been kept busy with that.

However, now that I'm "free" again, I'll start translating the rest of the course.....

Bippy, do you prefer chapter by chapter, or section by section? (chapters are divided into subsections). I igured, if I do a chapter by chapter basis, the Norman could put each chapter up as it goes through the process of translating, and the poor sods following the course would have a new chapter to work on every week or there abouts (or however quick I manage to translate, of course)

Well, you'll have to.... I'm not excactly going fast with this... and sometimes, how Babelfish translates from German to English causes me more of a headache than I'm willing to admit

Amiga C Kurs translated to English..
Don´t know if already was done before but I did it and uploaded the English translated version to the zone.
Don´t call me names if the translation isn´t the better, at least it´s the possible one
Hope it will be useful
