@_discord_1180724353764184138:t2bot.iopapyrusfan8709 Hello, I was trying to translate the recent short conversation in #kotava so I could practice. I got stuck on this message: https://discord.com/channels/379965248565936128/379982186180247552/1195467351664103497
Here's what I was able to understand:
By the means of a certain link at a public conferencing place, I found it. It is at framacarte.org's internet conferencing place, it still being able to be found. I don't know if it is reliable and all-encompassing, nevertheless several (people) are doing ??? individuals already having passed ???.
I started having trouble understanding near the end. Since I don't know French, I was using the Kotava-French dictionary, but then using a French-English translator to understand the dictionary. It is a little tedious, but it has been helpful for me to translate Kotava so far

@_discord_951409236653531176:t2bot.ioworasik Hello, your translation is generally quite accurate. The French/Kotava dictionary is indeed the most complete and accurate. The "correct translation" is : I found it by a link on a private forum. It can still be found on framacarte.org website. I don't know if it's reliable or exhaustive, but several points correspond to people I've already met and/or who are well known. 06:45:20

* grupecken = grupé (to know) + -ck- (suffix for "something normal") + -n (passive participle) ==> which is well known [by me here in context]
* rotrasir = ro- (prefix of possibility, can) + trasĂ­ (to find) + -r (3rd person singular)

@ulriko:matrix.orgUlrikoHi guys! In another channel sb stated that the fact Kotava is less western-centric by its vocab than most other conlangs like Esperanto, Interlingua, Occidental, Neo, Novial, Elefen etc.) is of not much use because all the teaching material exists only in three western languages (EN, FR, EO, are there more?), thus, who does not speak one of them cannot even learn Kotava. Are there activities, or plans, to produce primers in e.g. Arabic, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian, Thai or others? (I know this would require native speakers already performing well in Kotava.)15:33:12

It seems that Tokipona is very active, with lots of people registered on social networks. But what surprises me is that I can hardly find any texts in Tokipona, apart from translations of the grammar or the 200-word list. Why don't tokiponists translate any literary texts or significant articles? I have the impression that Interlingue and Interlingua are quite active and have produced a wealth of significant work.
I'd say that Tokipona is a fun language, but gives you a hard time when you try to translate literature. You can use it to talk about basic things, meet people while voyaging, make friends and have a good time for a short while, but it is not suited to have deeper conversations on your profession or hobbies. The vocab is too small, and it doesn't work if you have to describe many notions by a descriptive phrase. Therefore, if you're translating anything more complicated than Winnie Pooh, the result will be very difficult to understand. Thus, there will not be a "high" literature, and even not a simple do-it-yourself booklet, as all words for every tool would have to be described lengthily.

To my knowledge, no.
