1.1 Procedimentos de login e criação de conta. Meu perfil.

Quase todos os atos no LyricsTranslate.com precisam de uma conta de usuário. Visitantes que não tem contas só podem ler o conteúdo adicionado. Eles não podem adicionar traduções ou pedidos de tradução, não podem votar nem se inscrever em conteúdo, etc.

Por isso você deve se inscrever imediatamente! :) É de graça e muito fácil, só vai levar o tempo de ler essas poucas linhas. Só pedimos o seu endereço válido de email, e não o compartilhamos com nenhuma organização nem o usamos para enviar spam e emails indesejados.

It’s even more simple if you’ve already got a Facebook.com account. Then you may use a ‘connect via facebook’ option, and it authorizes you on our site in one click (if you’re already logged in in your FB account).

Depois de se registrar você poderá, se assim desejar, personalizar seu perfil com informações adicionais. Você pode especificar as linguagens em que você está interessado, colocar uma foto no seu perfil, adicionar contatos adicionais e etc. Estas informações serão visíveis para todos os visitantes do site que clicarem no seu perfil.

Você precisa de mais informações? Então aqui segue uma descrição detalhada dos procedimentos de login e criação de contas, além de editar o seu perfil.

  • When you click on "Login / Register" link, you see a login form. If you already have registered LyricsTranslate account, you just fill in there proper information and log in. Otherwise you may chose "Create new account" link, fill in desired login details, decipher CAPTCHA image - and button "Create new account" takes you to your profile page.
  • A princípio, a página do seu perfil é quase vazia. Se você clicar em 'Editar' e 'Editar o perfil do usuário", você poderá definir a foto do seu avatar, mudar os detalhes de login e fornecer suas informações de contato (ICQ, MSN, Skype, etc.). Lá você também poderá especificar as línguas em que você está interessado e sua proficiência - nativo, fluente e aquelas que você está aprendendo (ou que quer aprender). Quando você define essas línguas, seu perfil pode ser achado por pessoas que também estão interessadas em algumas dessas línguas: talvez alguém esteja aprendendo a língua na qual você é nativa - e assim você pode facilmente ajudá-lo. Ou talvez alguém que esteja aprendendo uma linguagem com você e quer ter um conselho em relação ao aprendizado.
  • Todas as informações privativas são mantidas escondidas e nunca mostradas publicamente. Por favor tenha cuidado e não use seu endereço de email como seu nome de usuário, porque somente assim ele fica visível para spammers em potencial.

1.4 How do I change my interface language?

LyricsTranslate is available in many languages, thanks to our interface translators. If you would like to see the list of the languages or to change yours, simply click on the “Select Language” button in the top right corner of every page, and then select a language from the list! If you make a mistake and choose a language that you don’t understand, you can always switch back to English (or another language), as the button stays the same regardless of the interface language.

Topo

1.5 What is Private Message (PM)?

The Personal Message (PM) system allows you to write messages to the other translators on the website. If you want to send one yourself, there are two ways of doing that:
1. Go to the profile page of the user whom you want to send your message to. Underneath the information they wrote about themselves and next to the languages they’ve selected, there is a “Contact me” field. The first option is “Send PM”, regardless of whether they’ve provided other means to be contacted – simply click it and write your message, then click “Send message”
2. You can send new messages from your own messages inbox (the tab is located under your own profile). There is a button “Write new message” in the top menu. Click it, type in the user’s username (the search gives you suggestions), then write your message and send it.
You can even send the same message to more than 1 user – simply divide with commas the usernames in the field “To”.

If you want to reply to a message another user sent you, there is a Reply field just underneath their message. Simply type in your response and click “Send message”. You can also check how your message looks like, before sending it, with the “Preview message” button.

Please note that you should have your PM enabled, in order to send and receive messages. It is enabled by default, but should you wish to change that setting, go to your profile->Edit->Enable private messages (located at the bottom of the page) and untick the box.

If you wish to block a specific user from sending you messages, head over to the message they’ve sent you and click on “Block user”. You can later unblock them by heading over to the “Blocked users” tab in your inbox and click “Unblock” next to their name.

2.1 Como eu adiciono o texto de uma música?

Primeiro de tudo, você deve estar logado para adicionar uma música. E quando você quiser adicionar uma música, é muito importante usar informações de artistas e letras que já possam existir no site.

First, use artist search to find page related to the singer / band who sings the song.

Can you see the artist you look for? If yes, then use "Add new song" button on his page.

Can’t you see the artist you look for? If there’s no such artist in our database, you should:

  • a) use this submit lyrics form.
  • b) there fill in artist’s name and additional information about this artist (if you know any - it’ll be useful for others), along with lyrics text. After that, an artist’s page with lyrics and translation will be created automatically and will be available through artist search form.

If you want to add song lyrics together with its translation(s), see 1.1 How do I add a lyrics translation?

Topo

2.2 Como adiciono um artista?

Please use the search first, to check whether the artist you're looking for already has a page. New artists are added automatically by the system when you open a page with their song. If you wish to add a song by an artist that’s not already present, then go to Actions->Add new song. Write the artist’s name and click Ok. You can add some infomation about them (country, genre, original name, website and wiki), and later on, after submitting the song, you can even add a picture of them.
Por favor note que o nome do artista deve ser escrito no alfabeto latino (Transcrito), mesmo quando o nome original deles for escrito em um alfabeto diferente. Para que ele fique disponível na outra língua, por favor adicione a forma original de escrever esse nome no campo "Nome original".

Topo

2.3 Como adiciono um vídeo?

You can add a video to all songs that you’ve submitted. To do so, either fill in the “Video” field with a link when adding a new song, or go to the page you wish to add video to, and click “Edit”, then add the link to the “Video” field.
If you wish to add a video to a song you haven’t submitted yourself, please use "Report broken data/spam" button on the song page.

Topo

2.4 Eu não consigo ver o conteúdo que eu adicionei

Existem duas possíveis razões:

  • I) Caching. We actively use caching mechanism on our site to improve its performance and increase page loading speed. It may cause delays in a new / changed content publishing. To check if that’s the case follow these steps:
    • a) Log in, if you’re not logged in,
    • b) Press Ctrl+R (Cmd+R for Mac users) to reload the page where the content you are looking for should be published.
  • II) O conteúdo foi deletado por um moderador. Você pode ver 5.1 I do not agree with moderator’s actions. What can I do?

Topo

2.5 Como eu edito uma tradução, música ou artista?

Primeiro de tudo, você precisa estar logado para adicionar algum conteúdo no site. Então existem duas situações possíveis:

I. You want to edit information submitted by you - it’s a translation you posted, an artist or lyrics added by you. Then you should go to the content page - it may be a translation page or an artist page or a song text page and there you’ll see an ‘Edit’ button at the top of the page (just below the content header). Of course, you should be logged in to see this button - double check it.

II. You want to correct information submitted by someone else. Then you may take any (or all) of these steps:

  • a) Write your corrections in page comments. Thus, a correct information becomes available to all visitors, including page author.
  • b) Write a private message (PM) with corrections to the page author, so that he’ll be able to correct mistakes by himself.
  • c) Write a private message (PM) with corrections to someone from a moderating team.
  • d) Post in this forum topic.

Don't write messages like "That's wrong!" Instead, explain why it is wrong, or a suggestion on how to make it better.

Topo

2.6 Como eu peço a transcrição de uma música?

Before requesting a transcription of the lyrics for a song, please check to see if the lyrics already exist under the artist's page on the site. The song you look for might have been uploaded with different spelling, listed in a different artist page (specially if the song's a collaboration or a cover of another song) or uploaded in the forums.

If you can't find the song you're looking for, you should fill in the lyrics transcription form. To reach it, follow the menu at the top of the page -> Requests -> Request lyrics transcription.

Note that most of the fields can be left blank if you're not sure of the artist. The only mandatory fields are a link to a sound or video file, and the language (you may select "Unknown" if you don't know it).

If you're going to ask for a transcription of a song that's performed in more than one language, please add the names of the languages in the comment section or in the title field, between parenthesis.

Topo

2.7 Covers and alternative performances

If there're multiple artists who performed or covered the song, they should be listed in the "Also performed by" field while adding the song. In such a case, translations would be available for all artists who performed the song.

Topo

2.8 Soundtracks

If you're going to add a song that was a part of a soundtrack, please don't add entries for each language the movie/musical/TV show has been performed in. Instead, add an entry with the name of the English (when possible) version of the show. When dealing with foreign language versions of the songs, add the names of the songs in their respective languages and their original English name between brackets. Example: 'Ich liebe dich [I Love You]'. Also take in consideration that movie soundtrack entries must be accompanied by (OST) in the artist name, while stage musical entries must be accompanied by '(Musical)' in the same field. Lastly, notice that all entries that are related to movie or musical soundtracks must have 'Soundtrack' chosen as genre.

2.9 Conteúdo autoral

Você pode publicar suas próprias poesias e conteúdo artístico. Para isso, se adicione como um novo artista e envie todo o conteúdo que você gostaria de ver no site.

Topo

3.1 Como eu solicito uma tradução?

First of all, you should be logged in to request a song translation. Then if you know for sure how an artist name and a song title for a song you’re interested in are spelled, follow these steps:

  • a) First, use translation search by translations database. Maybe the translation you look for already exists here.
  • b) Second, use request search by request database. May be the translation you look for is already requested by someone else. If that’s your case, follow the link and press ‘Subscribe’ on the page of this request. You’ll receive a notification when someone adds the translation.
  • c) Third, if that’s not your case, use artist search by artist database

    Have you found the artist who sings the song you’re interested in?

    If yes, then find the title of your song on the artist’s page, follow the link, and use ‘Request new translation’ button on the song page. If there’s no such song in a song list, use the ‘Request new translation’ button on the page. In this case you’ll be asked to provide the song lyrics - to make it possible for a translator to read and translate the song.

    If there’s no such artist, use the menu at the top of the page: Menu -> Requests -> "Add new request" button. Then you’ll be asked to add artist’s name and additional information about this artist (if you know any - it’ll be useful for others).

If you can’t go through all the previous steps because you don’t know an artist name and / or a song title are incorrectly spelled, first use forum to identify it.

Please note that the number of requests is limited to two open requests per one song.

3.2 Como eu adiciono uma tradução?

First of all, you should be logged in to add a translation. Also, when you want to add a translation, it’s very important to use lyrics and artist information which may already exist on the site.

First, use artist search to find a page related to a singer / band who sings the song you’d like to translate.

Have you found the artist you were looking for?

  • Se sim, então você deveria
  • a) find song name on the artist’s page
  • b) follow the link - you’ll see an “Add new translation” button on the song’s page
  • If there’s no such song in a list, use the “Add new translation” button which is on the artist’s main page. In this case you’ll be asked to add original lyrics text along with its translation.

Can't find the artist you're looking for?

3.3 Como eu uso as formas de 'adicionar uma nova tradução' e 'solicitar uma tradução'?

Adicionar novo formulário de tradução é aqui.

Abra um pedido de tradução aqui.

When you’re adding a translation request or a translation itself, you should specify all related information - song artist, song title and lyrics, song original language and (desired) translation language.

It will make your task easier by lessening the quantity of information you have to fill in. It will also make the site database tidier, by avoiding duplicate information.

If you can’t find artist or song in our database, then you’re welcome to use the form, and after that all required pages are created automatically, i.e. artist / song / translation / request pages.

To use these forms you should have javascript enabled in your browser. See also How to enable javascript in my browser.

Topo

3.4 Traduções duplicadas

Translations that are too close to the original lyrics or previously added song translations are not allowed. Please do not add duplicate translations if you'd like to change a couple of words. In this case it’s better to point to inaccuracies in comments, or contact a translator via PM service.

If you want to add your own unique translation, add a translation as a new one. See 1.1 How do I add a translation?

Topo

3.5 Translation ratings

Every registered user with role Junior Member (and above) can rate translations, added by other translators. Votes are numbers from 1 to 5, 1 is the lowest, 5 is the highest vote. If you leave vote lower than 5 you are required to leave a comment - to explain why in your opinion the translation isn’t perfect.

Para sua conveniência, segue um significado aproximado dos rankings.

  • 1 - terrible, just like a machine translation (see 2.3 What about Google Translate service and other machine translations?). It’s so bad that it shouldn’t be published on this site.
  • 2 - muito ruim. Até faz algum sentido, mas contém vários erros gramaticais e de sintaxe.
  • 3 - mais ou menos. Existem alguns erros, o autor deveria melhorar.
  • 4 - bom. Pode até não ser a melhor possível, mas o trabalho que foi feito aqui é merecedor de respeito. Não contem muitos erros de sintaxe e nenhum (ou quase nenhum) erro gramatical.
  • 5 - muito bom. Tradução excelente, não consigo ver nenhum erro nela.
Traduções que possam ser cantadas são bem-vindas, mas traduções não devem manter a métrica original ou serem feitas para serem cantadas para receber uma classificação alta.

Topo

3.6 Posso adicionar uma tradução feita por outra pessoa?

Se você vai adicionar uma tradução feita por outra pessoa, por favor, esteja certo de que o autor original não se importa com a republicação nos domínios do LyricsTranslate. Uma boa opção é colocar um link como fonte da tradução e as primeiras frases desta, ao invés de copiar todo o texto. Saiba que sua tradução será excluída do site caso o autor original reclame.

Topo

3.7 E sobre o serviço do Google Translate e outras traduções automáticas?

Traduções feitas por tradutores mecânicos (como exemplo o Google Tradutor) não são aceitas em LyricsTranslate.com. Os usuários que publiquem traduções feitas por tais meios podem ser banidos do site.

Topo

3.8 Transliterações

Línguas em páginas de letras devem ser escritas em seus sistemas nativos (por exemplo: as partes em russo de uma letra devem ser escritas em Cirílico). Para ajudar aqueles que não conseguem ler o alfabeto original, outra pessoa pode reescrever (ou copiar) a letra em um alfabeto diferente (normalmente, letras romanas). Isso é conhecido como transliteração.

If you want to upload a transliteration, upload it as if it were a translation to another language, but when asked for a language, select "Transliteration". You may upload more than one transliteration to a single song.

If this was correctly done, links reading "Original" and "Transliteration" will appear above the lyrics, like here. (If there's more than one transliteration, there will be links for "Transliteration 1", "Transliteration 2" ...) Clicking any of the links will change the song lyrics to a different script, instantly and without reloading the page (JavaScript must be enabled in order to do this).

Topo

3.9 Transcrições fonéticas

You can also upload phonetic transcriptions so users can read aloud the text without knowledge of the language. We use the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) for that.

The method to upload transcriptions to IPA is like the one to upload transliterations, but the system doesn't allow to swap instantly lyrics and transcriptions; IPA is treated like a normal language.

Topo

3.10 Línguas construídas, variações e extinstas

Nem letras nem traduções devem ser em línguas faladas atualmente; nós temos letras e/ou traduções em línguas construídas (como Esperanto, Klingon e Quenya), dialetos diferentes (Dialetos da Alemanha Central, Dialetos turcos, Dialeto Torlak...) e extintas (como Latim and e Galego-Português).

Topo

3.11 Línguas que não estão na lista

If you want to upload a song or translation for a language that's not in the list, please ask in the forum or to the adminship to add that language to the list.

You can choose "Other" as a language in the language list: in that case, either include a comment in your song, or change it to the correct one as soon as possible.

Topo

4.1 What are Idioms for?

Idiom is a phrase or a fixed expression that has a figurative, or sometimes literal, meaning. Idioms database is for storing idioms in different languages and, of course, their meanings, translated (or not) to other languages. Some phrases used in song lyrics are difficult to understand, that’s why we added idioms databank to the site. Users can add new idioms, meanings (definitions) to existing idioms, request idiom for explanation, etc. See next Q’s for details.

Topo

4.2 How to add a new Idiom?

There are two ways to add it:

  • 1) Use main menu:  Menu->Actions->Add new idiom.
  • 2) Use Idioms block in the right column of the front page.

You can add a new idiom to explain it, or to request an explanation for it. You can request explanation on any language.

Please log in to add a new idiom.

Topo

4.3 How to add new explanation to existing idiom

To add a new explanation to existing idiom, you can use Add an explanation button on the idiom page.
To find idiom page, use idiom search.

Topo

4.4 How to request an explanation for the idiom

To request an explanation for existing idiom, you can use Request for explanation button on the idiom page. To find idiom page, use idiom search. If you want to know the meaning of the idiom that does not exist in the database, use request explanation form.

Topo

5.1 Pontos

This site uses a point system to determine a user's basic standing on the site. You get points by adding content, and you need a certain amount of points to use the site without certain limitations on sending messages, posting links, adding requests, using profile settings, etc

  • 10 pontos por postar uma tradução
  • 3 points for posting a transliteration
  • 1 point for posting an idiom or a song
  • 2 points for posting an explanation of a idiom
  • 2 points for adding an artist

Points are a good way to judge a user's experience with the site, but take them with a grain of salt: They correspond to the quantity of a user's content, not the quality of it.

Sometimes site administration can manually add points for some useful deeds, e.g. when a user translates this site interface to another language.

  • best voter (user has left lots of adequate visitor ratings for other users’ translations)
  • best video editor (user has added lots of video clips to own and others’ translations)
  • etc.

Como parte das regras, uma medalha para cada nomeação é dada uma vez ao ano para um seleto grupo de tradutores.

Translator’s badges are shown in an “About translator” block. If you want to hide your badges from this block, use a top page menu: Menu -> User Profile -> “Hide your badges from "About translator" block” option.

You can access the list of translation requests 'in progress' via Main Menu.

After three days, if translation is not completed, the 'in progress' status is removed automatically.

One can still translate request, which is 'in progress' by other user. If somebody translates request you marked 'in progress' earlier, it will disappear from your 'in progress' list.

Topo

6.1 Use a busca avançada

The search form you see in a header of every page of LyricsTranslate.com uses Google search. It’s convenient for a general full-text search through all song texts, comments, forum posts etc., but has some restrictions (inconvenient display of result pages).

Try using advanced search because it allows very fine tuning of your search query.

Topo

6.2 Adicionando notas de rodapé

Para adicionar notas de rodapé ao seu texto, use as marcas para abrir e fechar [fn] e [/fn] nos locais em que você quer que a nota apareça - no próprio texto. Entre essas duas marcas você deve inserir o conteúdo da sua nota, para que fique deste jeito [fn]texto da nota aqui[/fn]. A ordem será gerada automaticamente, e você sempre pode editar o texto para brincar com essas e outras marcas. Tente procurar por marcas específicas ou uma 'lista de marcas' (tag list) para ver quais marcas html estão disponíveis, assim você pode também experimentar com elas no seus textos aqui.

You can also use a "value" attribute to a) set the numbering to start from the given value, or b) to set an arbitrary text string as label.
Ex:
[fn value="5"]This becomes footnote #5. Subsequent are #6, #7...[/fn]
[fn value="*"]This footnote is assigned the label "*"[/fn]
Using value="" you can have multiple references to the same footnote in the text body.
[fn value="5"]This becomes footnote #5.[/fn]
[fn value="5"]This is a reference to the same footnote #5, this text itself is discarded.[/fn]
