What happens if I don't see my translation online?

Firstly, please be patient :) If your translation have not appeared on Netvibes after some days, it only means that we haven't updated the translation files yet. However, if after 2 weeks, your language appears to still not having been updated, please contact us to report this issue. Another explanation is that maybe you need to reset your browser's cache (see our FAQ).

Is there a way to see the default page of my country with my language of choice without going to Netvibes settings everytime?

Yes. You can use special URLs with locale and language parameters to see what the netvibes default page of your country currently looks like.

The url is in the form: http://www.netvibes.com?locale=xx&lang=zz_XX&reset=1

Replace the codes as follow:

- locale=xx where xx is the 2-letters country code as identified by the ISO_3166-1 standard (countries list here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_alpha-2)

- lang=zz_XX where zz is the 2-or 3-letters language code as identified by theISO_639 standard (languages list here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_639)

Example: to see Netvibes default page in Germany, with German language, first log out from your Netvibes session, then type this url: http://www.netvibes.com?locale=de&lang=de_DE&reset=1

Note: For some locales, Netvibes doesn't use standard codes. Ex: French Belgium (Wallonia): bef http://www.netvibes.com?locale=bef&lang=fr_FR&reset=1

My language has been updated but the strings appearing online have a different translation than the one I made, Why?

It means that another translator have changed the strings you have translated, either to fix a syntax error, a typo, or because he found out that the translation could be improved. If he had done so, he certainly have a good reason to do so, however, if you are not satisfied with the new translation, simply discuss this topic on the forum related to this language. The later can be used to discuss how to enhance the translation in question.
