Hi,

Does anybody doing translation into Russian now? I found some strange names in relationship in Russian like:
Relationship: wife’s uncle’s brother
and
Связь: тёщаой деверь
Also any other non-straight relationship looks weird.

If this is the relationship, what else can we call it?

Russian translation sound like English rules used for generating the words, but not Russian analogue.
Thanks for link. I'll definitely participate in the project as I did with PGV translation a couple of years ago.

The relationship translation needs redeveloping.

Until then, other langauges solve the "gender needed" problem by using symbols such as

uncle » brother » cousin

Does it generates relationships on-the-fly, or there are full strings available for correct translation?
An examples:
great-grandson’s wife’s uncle’s mother >> some Language analog
Or reversed
son’s wife’s nephew-in-law’s great-grandfather

And another example:
great-grandson’s wife’s aunt’s grandson
Or reversed
great-aunt’s son-in-law’s great-grandfather

There are translations for all "simple" relationships. e.g. ones that have names - "great-grandfather", "brother-in-law", etc.

For complex relationshpis, webtrees will try to find the fewest "simple" relationships that can be combined to make the relationships.

In most complex relationship in Russian language combination doesn't work. I believe it's doable to change such complex translations from combination to raw strings in future version. I'm not sure about other languages, but most close to Russian has got it's own pronunciation and rules, even strange sometimes, without any rules.

I guess I found getRelationshipNameFromPath function, which is generating such string. I will analize it and make some suggessions how to change it to have proper transtalion into Russian.
