Dia daoibh, I’m trying to set up a ga_IE locale option on my website, and one task I have is setting up the abbreviated month names (Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec). I’ve looked in several places and I can’t seem to find any established standard for these abbreviations as Gaeilge. Do I just take the first three letters as in English, or would that look weird to a native speaker? Is there a standard?

As a follow-up, here’s what I’ve used so far (with English for reference)

  closeText: ‘Dún’, (Close)
  prevText: ‘Roimhe’, (Previous)
  nextText: ‘An chead eile’, (Next)
  monthNames: [‘Eanáir’, ‘Feabhra’, ‘Márta’, ‘Aibreán’, ‘Bealtaine’, ‘Meitheamh’, ‘Iúil’, ‘Lúnasa’, ‘Meán Fómhar’, ‘Deireadh Fómhair’, ‘Samhain’, ‘Nollaig’],
  monthNamesShort: [‘Ean’, ‘Fea’, ‘Már’, ‘Aib’, ‘Bea’, ‘Mei’, ‘Iúi’, ‘Lún’, ‘MFó’, ‘DFó’, ‘Sam’, ‘Nol’],
  dayNames: [‘Dé Domhnaigh’, ‘Dé Luain’, ‘Dé Máirt’, ‘Dé Céadaoin’, ‘Déardaoin’, ‘Dé hAoine’, ‘Dé Sathairn’],
  dayNamesShort: [‘Dom’, ‘Lua’, ‘Mái’, ‘Céa’, ‘Déa’, ‘Aoi’, ‘Sat’],
  dayNamesMin: [‘Do’, ‘L’, ‘M’, ‘C’, ‘Dé’, ‘A’, ‘S’],
  weekHeader: ‘Seachtain’, (Week)
  firstDay: 1,
  isRTL: false,
  showMonthAfterYear: false,
  yearSuffix: ‘’,
  timeOnlyTitle: ‘Am amhain’, (Only time)
  timeText: ‘Am’, (Time)
  hourText: ‘Uair’, (Hour)
  minuteText: ‘Nóiméad’, (Minute)
  secondText: ‘Soicind’, (Second)
  currentText: ‘Dáta inniu’, (Current Day)
  ampm: true,
  month: ‘Mí’, (Month)
  week: ‘Seachtain’, (Week)

Athbhliain faoi mhaise! What about using “ar ais” (backwards) and “ar aghaidh” (forwards) for prevText and nextText, respectively? The problem with “An chéad ... eile” is that you’d normally have to specify what it refers to, e.g. “an chéad téacs eile”, “an chéad lá eile”. In timeOnlyTitle, there should be a fada on “amháin”. As for abbreviations, I have no idea whether they’re used in Irish. Anyone got an Irish-language calendar? smile

Go raibh maith agat, I knew there were better ones for next and back that I had seen on other Irish language sites, I just couldn’t think of them. Thanks for the help!
