Announcing the next major release of Shabad OS! Dhan guru nanak dev ji de 550 salan parkash purab diyan lakh lakh vadhaiyan! (Wishing you trillions of increased blessings for the prosperous, respected, guru nanak's 550th parkash anniversary) ਧੰਨੁ ਧੰਨੁ ਧੰਨੁ ਜਨੁ ਆਇਆ ॥ ਜਿਸੁ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਸਭੁ ਜਗਤੁ ਤਰਾਇਆ ॥ (prosperous, prosperous, prosperous servant's arrival / whose gracious gift saves all humanity from drowning) Features include greatly improved live captions stability, separated settings window for easier management, more natural and effective search result ordering, etc. One of the greatest things is that the hundreds and hundreds of corrections made by our team to improve gurbani's accuracy is finally available to everyone through this desktop app. The Shabad OS database is publicly corrected and has a historical account of all changes made. The latest changes include citations of physical sources, page numbers, and images to verify the accuracy of gurbani between the physical source and digital database. These database improvements will be downloaded to Shabad OS without requiring another major release for the desktop app. Be rest assured that the Shabad OS database is one of (if not the) most accurate representations of Sikh guru's, bhagat's, poet's writings ever! Volunteers have dedicated and will continue to dedicate hours of scrutinizing comparisons between physical sources and the digital database to ensure that we have scholarly levels of accuracy. Beyond this we are now hoping to get as many gurdware using Shabad OS with a full support team to set-up projectors/livestreams. Simply go to https://shabados.com and download for your platform!!!
Hidden agenda on translations given to Gurbani?
Jaggaa posted a topic in WHAT'S HAPPENING?I've come across some wrong translations of Gurbani on apps such as Gurbani anywhere and also on the website searchgurbai.com - From what I understand they all use the same translations as the same mistakes are on a lot of different apps etc. This is unnaceptable and such applications which portray Gurbani in such a way should not be available. I'm going to display 2 examples of worrying mistakes that I have come across recently. Example #1 http://searchgurbani.com/guru_granth_sahib/shabad/3260/line/2 (You just have to read the translations for a few tuks and it becomes clear what i'm on about) Example #2 (A more dangerous example as this is changing Gurbani itself) On the android Gurbani Search app if you search for this shabad : http://www.sikhitothemax.com/page.asp?ShabadID=10073 It changes a word on the 2nd tuk. Instead of Gur Simar, it changes it to Gur Daas. This needs to be checked out, all the Gurbani displayed on apps made available to the public need to be reviewed by 2-3 panthic bodies who take their time to check the Gurbani and make sure its translations and the Bani itself is accurate. If you pay attention to the first example, that seems pretty deliberate. I'm sure many others have had similar experiences, would be great if you could also contribute and hopefully somebody who is in touch with the people who put such Gurbani sources out there can get this looked at.
