View Full Version : german web user required to IP detection test code

11-18-2007, 06:14 PM
I am looking for someone based In Germany to test something for me. I have tested this as much as I can on my local machine, but would really like to check it with someone ACTUALLY connected to the Internet in Germany.

I'll probably widen it out to Austria as well.

If you go to http://www.ayrshireminis.com/ you should be automatically forwarded to the German version of the website, (the /DE dir).

There should also be a PHP Session set to keep this setting throughout your browsing, so that if you move between page the content will still be in German. You should also be able to override the IP detection code by selecting 'English' from the drop down or clicking the British flag.

If someone could try it I would be very grateful.

Oh, and also if you spot any German spelling/grammar mistakes let me know. My german is basic and alot of the translation was done with Google Translator :-)

Really bad mistake. Do not use a machine translator other than to get the 'gist' of a text.

i know..... ;-(

I have changed around some words and phrases that I can, but I am not that fluent in German to be able to write say three or four paragraphs - like the front page.

You don't happen to know anyone on your MSN/GoogleTalk/ICQ/AIM/Skype that is in German.

This sounds like a work request, which costs money.

And no, I don't.

But using those kind of translations just sets yourself up for a giant failure.

a German proxy server could possibly help here maybe? just can't seem to find one that works :-)

they are scarce on the sites i've been loking at.......
