Question Please help with translations

Hello guys,

I need your help with translations for the my new app. Will be great to have Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese translations.

About the app: it's very simple "talking watch" app, operated by the voice command. For example, you are jogging in the frosty morning, the phone is in your pocket, and you are listening music on headset. So, if you wanna know what time is it, just press a headset button and ask "What time is it", thats all...

The link to the translations spreadsheet: http://goo.gl/Dk9agG

(update): I forgot to enable spreadsheet editing, sorry. Now it fixed

Thanks a lot!

P.S. I know (and actually using) Microsoft Multilingual App Toolkit plugin to Visual Studio but the quality of the machine translation by Bing... hmm... tried for Russian language, results are... very strange

P.P.S. I can add translators as a beta-testers - just PM me your LiveID email. The app will be available (for beta-testers) at http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=...8-e32d6582a327

[UPDATE] Guys, I don't have plans to localize app for the languages differ than above: there is no reason for that. The purpose of the app is simple: you asking your handset about time on your own native language, and phone tell you what time is it now. If your language has no support of TTS/STT (text-to-speech & speech-to-text i.e. voice commands), there is no reason to localize UI (theoretically, I can build this app UI-less).

[UPDATE 2] C'mon, guys; I saw a lot of people from France, Italia, Spain on xda... It will take just a 5 minutes, not longer - I promise! Please, help!

ngame, I'm really appreciate your help but AFAIK there is no Farsi TTS/STT services for WP8 (I'm using built-in functionality only). BTW, if you want to test it on English/Russian, you may join beta-testing, just PM me your liveid (I'll add you as a beta-tester).

I thought you have files for each language to say the time .
Yes WP TTS System can't read Persian .
You can add Unsupported Languages by downloading a Package file .
For example if some one wants to add unsupported language first download a pack of files to read the clock in that language but they have to use English Speech ! a little mistake .

Thanks everybody for translation, I'll publish updated version this evening (EST).

pdaimatejam, do you have Turkish language for the speech services installed? AFAIK, there is no Turkish STT/TTS support in the phone. What kind of language you are using for the speech (voice commands etc)? And I need your LiveID email, to add you as a beta-tester.

Thanks a lot, I really appreciate! Will add you as a beta-tester soon (need to complete Chinese translation first).
Could you please tell me, how to split 现在几点 (What time is it) sentense to the 2 parts? It's because of MS voice commands API limitation, I need to define prefix (for English, it's "what time" and command ("is it"). Could you do the same with Chinese hieroglyphs? By the way, how voice commands works on Chinese and other ideographic languages?

And (just to prove), "current time" on Chinese is "当前时间", right?

"what time" is “几点” and "is it" can be considered as "现在", and i think the chinese voice commands works fine on wp8, it is better than google now.
for Q2, yes "current time" is 当前时间
