App: Voice guidance in Danish

Hi Kurviger,
Could you please add Voice Guidance for Danish?
If you need contributions to make it into the app, I would be happy to assist :+1:

Best regards,

Google Text-to-Speech supports the language, so I can add it.

I will contact you for some extra help. :slightly_smiling_face:

Super cool :sunglasses:

I translated all voice texts in Danish.

@Anders_Winther-Dahl please check your private messages,
for the translations to see if more improvements are needed.

Yes, I’ll take a look this evening and get back to you :+1:

Hi @devemux86,
Is there new texts that need translation?
Waypoint sound strange in Danish :sweat_smile:

Best regards,

Do you mean the voice announcement “Waypoint 1,2,3,…”?
Is there a better translation for “Waypoint”?

Yes, the TTS tries to pronounce it in Danish.
A better translation is ‘viapunkt’

That is like the english “Via point”.

The english word we need to translate here is the “Waypoint”.

You’re right :+1:
The direct translation would be ‘vejpunkt’.
TomTom uses the same translation

It’s fine with me, but I think it would be more natural for me if it was ‘viapunkt’, because I’m using the feature to drag a route in a certain direction.

Maybe we’re talking about two different things.
I’m talking about this via point. Maybe I just confused myself :sweat_smile:

So this seems to be the translation used elsewhere as well.

Thanks, I will update it.

There are 3 terms:

  • Via points
  • Shaping points
  • Waypoints (all of them)

For the voice guidance we use the term waypoint in all languages.
(as it is a term more familiar to users)

The TTS in Danish just pronounce it very strange. It would be nice if you could promote this word to be customizable for every language :wink:
