I hardly believe that one has large chances with a pure babelfish translated application.
I hardly believe that one has large chances with a pure babelfish translated application.Well that's why I suggested that if it's a good application but you don't speak/type/code in German you could call upon some of the German speaking people who frequent these forums to help you out with the translations (and perhaps come to some sort of 'arrangement' if you win one of the prizes ;)
Sounds like a feasable way to go for all non-german speakers.
In the rules you will now find elaborations of the discussed topics:
Es gibt keine Einschränkung hinsichtlich der Nationalität der Teilnehmer.
No restriction in respect to the nationality of the participants.
Die Sprache der Anwendung muss Deutsch sein.
Language of the application must be German.
this competition was initiated by the Oracle General Business Technology Sales Business Unit and acts in our point of view as a pilot for other countries. With this award and the applications from the competition we like to strenghten your and our partners position in the midmarket through awareness. For smaller German SMB-customers who are often not acting in an international environment it is essential that the language of their applications is German. If a customer uses one of the freeware APEX Award applications in combination with Oracle XE sooner or later he might come to you as the original developer to get more functionality and/or potentially he will buy a DB license. I think a good win-win situation for everybody.
Can you think they would do something like that with ADF? ;-)
In my point of view a good idea and could be initiated on a local or international base.

I was joking about the ADF contest. I can't see somebody would do a freeware version in ADF.
It would take them ages ;-)
And now? Does someone already participate in the competition?
this award is a cool idea (especially for me as a german apex user). Only problem i have is that i'm lacking of a cool idea for a usable business application.
But if someone needs help in translating your application to german, send me a message, i'm willing to help.
The award rules say The application must be useful in business environments. Applications with a private use (for example: DVD management) are not allowed.
So why not make a DVD management system. A record store is business isn't it ?
Unfortunately I already have to finish an application, so I don't have the time to participate myself.
But for anybody how needs help in translation: I'm native german speaker and can give some help in this case.
Hope this award will take place again next year :).
a very negative aspect on this competition is, that you have to sign a statement that you give oracle the full rigths to use your code for whatever they want... - for free...
for freeWell technically if you win (or in the first three places) then you do in-fact get paid for your work ;)
Even if it will be a free application, can we use Oracle 11g EE functions and the BI Publisher?

I am not any representative of this contest, so this is my personal opinion. As an Oracle shareholder, I definitely say YES. :)
you're right - but if you do not win, you totally loose - not only the contest, but also the time you invested in the application...
