Facebook…in Navajo. Interested?
Found something amazing from @indigenoustweet on Twitter. This is what I saw:
So I responded. And @indigenoustweet responded with a test version after I had given him the Navajo word for “like”. I actually gave two words (shiłikan and shił ya’at’eeh) and I don’t think either were 100% correct. But, correct or not, I wanted to see what Facebook would look like with a Navajo makeover. This is what I saw from the test:
I’m not at Facebook often, but I know quite a few Navajos are. So now I want to see what the interest is in helping to get the words and phrases translated to get a solid Navajo Facebook layout. There are not a lot of words and phrases to translate. Here are a few examples:
There are actually some simple words for those who don’t know as much Navajo. What will be interesting is finding the right Navajo word or phrase for certain words and phrases on Facebook.
I want to know if there is anybody interested in translating. Once everything was translated we could filter through the translations to see if they are the right fit.
So? Who’s in? Comment or email me (NavajoNowBlog at Gmail dot com) and I will let you know more in the coming week or so. At this point I want to know if there is an interest. If there are enough responses, then I’ll continue to set up a document to enter your translations. Even if you can translate one word, go ahead and email me. No contribution is too small.
