Any news on Vietnamese mini stories?
No, sorry. Nothing in Vietnamese so far.
I know that you here this a lot Zoran, for every language… but I would LOVE to study Vietnamese on lingq with the mini stories,
I’ll do my best to make your wishes come true as soon as possible, guys. I promise.
you are amazing!
How does the development work usually? After how many mini stories do you start to develop the language on the site, or what milestone do you need to reach, in order to add the language to the “beta” section?
I’m trying to gather some help in translating the stories to Vietnamese, but I also like to know, that after this is done, how long do I need to wait until I can finally learn with them on LingQ?
This is a similar question I had for Georgian (the mini stories are ready…I think it’s been more than 2 month but the developers have not yet decided when to put them onto the site) I guess there is more work involved than one imagines.
@tuzogep We need at least 40 Mini Stories before we can add a language. So far 20 stories are delivered in Vietnamese but some volunteers are working on more so we should hopefully have enough soon.
At the moment we are working on our major site/apps update (LingQ 5.0 version) which takes most of our time. Once when we release this major update, we will start adding new languages again.
Any Vietnamese news
@MarkE 25 stories translated and recorded so far. However we won’t be adding new languages before we launch site update. Hopefully in June the new version will be up and we will continue.
I’ve just sent the last stories and recordings (46-60) to Zoran. From this perspective, everything is ready to have Vietnamese (northern) on Duolingo, but as far as I know, it will only come after the new platform of LingQ is done. And that will be… no one knows when.
I was looking to study Vietnamese on lingq when all the new languages are added with 5.0. Comments below say all 60 stories are ready however, in one of Steve’s recent videos he said there are only 25 ready. Does anyone know why this is and if we can expect to see Vietnamese in the near future?
That’s good to know. I was a bit confused after Steve’s latest video when he listed which languages had all of the mini-stories.
Still really looking forward to this
Can we expect to see it before spring?
Not sure yet, sorry.
Which new languages are being added and what is 5.0? How can we see the new languages?
A few languages are on the waiting list, but we’ll talk more about it once when we actually get back to adding new languages.
LingQ 5.0 is new web/app version of LingQ that will be released very soon.
I remember that Mark said that in LingQ 5.0 it would be more transparent to the users the status about the Languages in Alpha. I hope that you guys are thinking on having a website endpoint with Coming Languages listed and what are the requirements lacking, then it would increase community awareness on how to help “LingQ Librarians” to meet all the requirements.
