Dear Forum Users,

We need to add a few phrases to our mobile app interface.

Can you help us by translating these phrases into Polish?


"Please wait..."

and

"Cannot load."



Thank you!

Sincerely,

TheFreeDictionary Team

Polish translation of given phrases:

"Please wait..." - "Proszę czekać..."

"Cannot load." - "Nie można załadować." (if talking about a function or a word) or "Nie można zainstalować." (if it's a program or application). It depends on what a phrase will be used to indicate.

I'm sorry you had to wait so long for a reply.

I answered this via PM already.
However, my translation was like this:
"Please wait..." - "Proszę czekać..."
"Cannot load." - "Błąd odczytu."
I translated second phrase like this because: 1] the characters use (approximately) the same space, and 2] the application cannot load something, presumably, because of an error.
Anyway, the result is still the same.

I wrote nnorlen's explanation about the usage of the phrase on the other forum. The message "Cannot load" will be displayed when a new word in the Hangman game cannot load due to an error.

I too thought to translate "Cannot load" as "Nie można wczytać". Indeed, your rendering can save some space. Just like you said, the result is still the same. :)
