By the way.. If you explain to me what 'common data' is, I'd be happy to try and think of a proper translation :)

Thank you for your help!

It's very interesting that "IJslands" begins with two capital letters!

"Common data" refers to "data in common," or "shared data"—data that is shared between multiple dictionary sources and only needs to be downloaded once when downloading multiple dictionaries.

Along with "including {10 Mb} of common data," which is part of a larger sentence, can you also provide a translation of the phrase "common data" by itself?

In Dutch, IJ is considered to be one letter, a variation of Y. It isn't quite clear where this letter goes in the alphabet (under I-j or Y), even dictionaries don't agree. Very interesting indeed.


I think someone with a bit more IT knowledge may have a better translation for 'common data', but I'll do my best.
'common' seems to mean 'non-specific' in this context. Then I'd say it should be translated as 'algemeen' (this means general, common, universal).


Then it would be:
"including {10 Mb} of common data" = Inclusief {10Mb} aan algemene bestanden
and "Common data" = Algemene bestanden


I think this is better than translating 'shared data' (gedeelde bestanden), because this raises questions about who/what is sharing the data (with whom&what) (people, dictionaries, phones?)



& You're welcome!
Have a nice day

@Bowdenii With all due respect it's not 100% correct; a subtle difference there is between data and files. Files contain data (structured as in database or just in a row = 'flat file')

Common data = Gemeenschappelijke gegevens (of gedeelde informatie)

Files = bestanden.

Hope this helps.

So you, ClubFavolosa, were the IT expert we were waiting for! You're right :)

"Inclusief {10 Mb} aan algemene gegevens" & "Algemene gegevens" = correct

Thank you!

Is "Inclusief {10 Mb} aan gemeenschappelijke gegevens" also correct?

Yes it is. but it takes up more characters :)

gemeenschappelijk(e) = shared
algemeen/algemene = common

- which is almost the same in this context -

Correct. Neither Bowdenii nor me are perfectionists. I'm indeed a kind of 'geek' not a linguist :-)
I did send a translation to nnorlen privately. Further discussion if needed with the three of us might be useful.
