How does one say hotlink, download/save, and hosting provider in French, German, Japanese, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, and Hindi?
I'm preparing a graphic to redirect hotlinkers to via .htaccess, and, instead of the universal language of an offensive image
, I thought I would use something a little more polite. I would like to say, "Please do not (hyperlink/hotlink) to this (image/graphic). Please (save/download/copy) the (image/graphic) to your own hosting provider."
The problem is that you can't literally translate link or host, because they don't use the same concepts as in english. For example, the french word for for link, lien, isn't used to refer to the things you click on to navigate web pages. I saw "liason chaude" used on a canadian page, but my french isn't that good and I want to make sure I'm not asking people to refrain from steamy sexual relations with my images.
I could just use the literal string "hyperlink" or "hotlink" and would probably accomplish 99% of what I'm trying to do, but I figured since I'm trying to be all culturally sensitive and polite and stuff, I might as well at least attempt to do it right.
I'd like to do the 5-7 languages most commonly found on the net, and to have a good spread of alphabets, too. I'm guessing a good selection would be (I don't know in what order)Swedish, French, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, and maybe Hindi, but if someone has actually done the research on which ones are best to cover, I'll use those.
