[REBOL] Need month names and abbreviations for "All" languages of the world!

From: gjones05::mail::orion::org at: 31-May-2001 11:43

Hi fellow REBOLers, Thorsten Moeller discovered that the FTP scheme in REBOL will not correctly read from his German file server because the month abbreviations are different from the English versions included in REBOL. We are working to patch the FTP scheme so that any ftp file server language abbreviation can be accommodated. I used AltaVista's BabelFish to find possible month names in the languages that it translates between, but I cannot verify these names, nor the expected 3 letter abbreviation. I've included a tentative list below from which to work. Please excuse the likely errors and *make alterations* that are necessary. And, as importantly, please add the bulk of the languages that are not included (I can readily think of the following countries represented on the list: Sweden, Czech Rep., Netherlands, Belgium, Japan, Denmark, Brazil, Slovak Rep., Russia), especially if you know that "Internationalized" versions of OSes use languages other than English. Thanks in advance! --Scott Jones Tentative List of Language Month Names and Abbreviations: English: -------- January February March April May June July August September October November December Spanish: -------- Enero Febrero Marcha Abril Mayo Junio Julio Agosto Septiembre Octubre Noviembre Diciembre French: ------- Janvier Février Mars Avril Mai Juin Juillet Août Septembre Octobre Novembre Décembre German: ------- Januar Februar März April Mai Juni Juli August September Oktober November Dezember Italian: -------- Gennaio Febbraio Marzo Aprile Maggio Giugno Luglio Agosto Settembre Ottobre Novembre Dicembre Portuguese: ---------- Janeiro Fevereiro Março Abril Maio Junho Julho Agosto Setembro Outubro Novembro Dezembro (This tentative 3 letter abbreviation list requires viewing with a fized width font in order for the columns to line up.)
