GEH en Espanol launched

Filed under: Software Updates — by at 3:19 pm on Wednesday, April 4, 2007

We are pleased to announce the launch of GEH en Espanol, the Spanish language version of our site.  It uses the same database of files as our main site, but translated into Spanish.  The complete collection of files (18,000+) has not yet been translated, but it’s well on its way.

Other languages will be coming within the next few weeks.

Sorry, but some of your translations in spanish are not coherents, and some tools (like search) are not working in the spanish page.

Sorry about that. I had been working on some upgrades to the search feature today and messed it up a bit. It should be working properly now – let me know if it’s not.

As for the bad translations, please let me know what to fix (and which page its on) and I’ll change it right away. I don’t speak any Spanish, so I’m relying on others to translate it properly. You can e-mail me at

Yes, the translations have faults.

Gran cosas que usted ha encontrado must be “Cosas interesantes que hayas encontrado”.

Remember that in Spanish, Hello! is writen ¡Hola! Put the ¡ sign.

Google Earth Tajos no son afiliados con Google en ninguna manera -> 😆 The result of cutting an arm with an axe, for example, that is a “Tajo”. º”Google Earth Hacks no está afiliada a Google en forma alguna”

guys i am sorry about the faults I go through a lot of articles a day and sometimes i miss some things. The reason i put tajos is because that is the meaning of hacks.

Thank you
Daniel Arzuaga

Send me an email with the english text that you want to translate and I’ll do the best I can (and when I can).

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and
was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% positive.
Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
