Project Details

ReactOS is a free and open source operating system written from scratch. It's design is based on Windows in the same way Linux is based on Unix, however ReactOS is not linux. ReactOS looks and feels like Windows, is able to your run Windows software and your Windows drivers, and is familiar for Windows users.

Development began in 1996, as a Windows 95 clone project, and was continued as ReactOS in 1998, with the incremental addition of features of later Windows versions.

As of July 2018, ReactOS is considered alpha software, feature-incomplete but with many Windows applications already working (e.g. Adobe Reader 6.0, OpenOffice, etc) and therefore recommended by the developers only for evaluation and testing purposes.

ReactOS is released under GNU GPLv2 Open Source license, with some parts released under LGPL and BSD licenses.

Translation Overview

This is the seventeenth part of the ReactOS translation. There are some strings that were already translated. I'm translating the project file by file, so as I'm encountering those translated strings I'm fixing them or leaving them alone (depending on what needs to be done)

Subject to @ruth-girl's proof-reading, the project is now 68% translated. ReactOS translations are split into many files, so I'm going on a per-file translation, aiming to hit 1200 words on each contribution.


The project is being translated from English to Greek. I'm a native Greek and because of my job (programmer) English is a "must learn" language.

In this session

In this session I translated the following utilities/apps:

kernel32 (2nd part), lsasrv, modemui (partial)

"kernel32" was the hardest file so far (and it's not even 100% complete). Also, modemui was somewhat difficult too, as it had a lot of protocols that are not being used anymore but I still had to make sure they are correctly translated!

The funiest/worst auto-translation was:

Odd. For some reason, there was a suggestion of Χάντικαπ which is a betting term translated from Odds. Crowdin works in mysterious ways :D

Word Count

I translated 1335 words, minus an estimated 10% for duplicates and untranslated words, which brings us to ~1201 words, for a total of 19762 words out of 37669 words. All numbers were rounded to the nearest integer (as you obviously can't translate 724.24 words)

Proof of Authorship

tl;dr version

ReactOS is a great project, aiming to help the average Joe try a free alternative operating system, without having to change a lot of his habits. It has a long way to go though, as it is still in alpha development stage. I'm proud to translate this into Greek, as I've always been secretly supporting this project!

I have translated 1335 words (-10% for duplicates and untranslated words = ~1201 words) for a total of 19762 words out of 37669 words. I'm now translating libraries used to power your devices, as well as some internet and hardware related stuff.

Thank you everyone for taking your time to read about my contribution. Big thanks to the @utopian-io and @davinci.witness teams for making this possible, and also to the rest of the people of the Greek Translation Team that I'm proud to be part of. Feel free to follow the rest of them to check their translations!

Thank you for your 35th contribution to the Davinci-Utopian translation project @dimitrisp and the 17th part of the ReactOS project.

Following the “mess” after the HF20 “reboot”, this review comes a little later than usual, but we are all old enough members to understand how in Steemit, nothing is granted.

Your translation was, as always, very good and accurate, with correct formatting, syntax and spelling. This part was quite hard, just like the previous one (#16), but again you pulled it off correctly.

Your contribution post is also very good, presents all the necessary details and your personal comments on the current session.

In general, your work was very good! You are doing your best on this project that is cut out just for you! I am glad you chose to translate ReactOS, because you are the most suitable person in our team to complete such a task!

I hope new contributions will start coming out soon, as I can’t wait to see this project finished!
