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 nineteenth 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 74% 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 stumbled upon the biggest file of the project! It will take 5-6 parts to finish this file, if not more!

And his name is... rasdlg!

The longest translation in this session:

It's not huge, but the original string is 98 characters, while the translation is 140 characters. Anything, to make sure the translation is well understood by everyone! :)

Word Count

I translated 1201 words, minus an estimated 8% for duplicates and untranslated words, which brings us to ~1104 words, for a total of 22181 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 1201 words (-8% for duplicates and untranslated words = ~1104 words) for a total of 22181 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 37th contribution to the Davinci-Utopian translation project @dimitrisp and the 19th part of the ReactOS project.

Following the difficult 18th part, this one was a little better for you (and for me, as I had to read your translation). You provided again a very good and accurate text, with proper grammar and spelling and without any mistakes. I am very glad you chose to work on this project, you are the only one on our team that would manage to get this right.

Your contribution post is very good too. You included all the basic details and some of your comments on the current session. You also keep going for contributions above 1100 words, which means you are not afraid of putting the extra effort, no matter how demanding the English text is every time.

In general, your work was great! Keep rocking the ReactOS project!
