Hi Ingvild,

Thanks for helping with the translation efforts.

Yes, we will need sign language translations too.  If anyone wants to 
try, here are some of the details on how to make it happen.

SignMaker currently has an ASL interface for demonstration and testing.  
I created it myself with SignMaker.  It will need cleaned up by someone 
who knows ASL.

Here's what the edit tab looks like.

In SignMaker, create or load a sign.  Then, on the dictionary tab, the 
Formal SignWriting string will be clearly displayed for the current sign 
being edited.  Just double click the FSW string to select it all.  Then 
copy the string.

The translation messages file looks like this for sign languages...

     copy: 'M521x538S14c01492x503S15a20479x511S18501494x462S26500500x484',
     mirror: 'M512x533S15d00493x506S2e100488x467',
     center: 'M522x525S18222503x496S15a36495x513S22a04478x475S20500480x513S2e70a494x477',

The translation messages file can be found online:

The sign language translation is quick, especially when the dictionary 
of the target language is available.  SignMaker online currently only 
has the ASL dictionary available.  The other sign language dictionary 
from SignPuddle will be available soon.  More details to follow.

Hmm.  Sorry to hear that.  Is there anything I can do to help?
