I have two issues with the current system:
The Tiki language naming scheme does not work well with languages that use more than one script. For instance, Serbian language uses cyrillic as a primary script and latin is also fairly common. Therefore, at least two language.php files need to be provided. The usual conventions in Gnome and KDE, also compliant with ISO recommendations are:
sr — serbian language, cyrillic script
sr@Latn — serbian language, latin script
this one is obviously bugged
Why does the "Completion" remain zero?
We, people using simplified Chinese, should work together for the simplified Chinese translation.
The completion "0" is represented for languages like eu (Basque).
Chinese is undefined, waiting for a Chinese TikiWiki administrator/translator to evaluate the completion.
I have corrected the /hebrew/language.php files (strange encoding) for the version 1.8.3 (installed here).
I wasn't able to use Unired (as suggested here) under Windows XP hebrew enable. I have used Babel Stone (free http://uk.geocities.com/babelstone1357/Software/BabelPad.html) and it was ok.
After corrections, i'll try to find someone fluent in hebrew (i'm not) to complete the translation work about hebrew...
At least i have contributed in Tiki and i'm very proud !
PS : I attach here the correct language.php file.
Hi: Catalan version of language.php file is 100% finished, finally, for 1.8.4. How should I proceed to enable having it installed at tw.o? And also in future releases for tiki1.8.x
(for 1.9 I know that we have to submit it at modstw.o)
1.8.5 will probably be modular as well, if it ever gets released.
Register a project for the language at mods.tw.o and you can upload it to your files space. From there it will appear as a mods available install for use on tw.o and other 1.9 sites. It can be marked for 1.8.x too and so be available for all 1.8 based sites.
All language files will be moved to mods.
I have just installed tikiwiki 1.9 on my website and tried to see how to do a Romanian translation of the interface. I created a ro directory in the lang directory, then copied the language.php file from the en directory, then made some changes. But it didn't seem to work, even after clearing the cache and using the exterminator: nothing happened after choosing the new language (I also edited the langmapping.php file). And unfortunately I couldn't find any documentation for tikiwiki 1.9.
Is there anything else I have missed?
Thanks in advance,
Hi Filipok, check that you are not facing the typical problem of site vs. user lang. selection. Let's assume you initially had english language selected for your site and as your user prefs. If you are logged as admin, for instance, and change the language of the site to romanian (through Admin > General, ...), you won't see the changes until you log out, because the language of the interface selected by the users admin is still english (if you haven't changed it manually through "MyTiki > Prefs." ...).
If this is the case, then change your user's (admin) lang to romanian to see the changes.
Just in case you were facing the same problem I had long ago, when I was starting to translste Tiki...
By the way, note that there is the feature "use db for translation" + "import language", whcih would allow you and the users with "tiki_p_edit_languages" permission to cooperate translation the interface strings, etc. However, it's still buggy (1.9.0, and changes from end of july'05 from rlpowell didn't work for me, so the feature "use db for translation"-etc. might be still a bit buggy)
Good luck, and use the users forum to have a wider response to your questions.
I'm trying to translate TikiWiki into my native language.
Just I'm wondering if and how I can upload my tranlated files in order to be used by others.
Any help would be appriciated.
Come on IRC to meet everyone! Which language? Do you know how to use CVS?
