One question:

I am asked a lot to make also the classical buttons for foreign languages. Since the default buttons go from point of color view also for the classic theme and we have several free button generators for the classical style I did not do those so far. Is that OK ?

I definitely prefer 'classic' for the czech language:

a) 'Default' buttons are so tiny and barely readable. The czech language uses lots of accents and they don't fit well (IMO)
b) 'Default' theme renders incorrectly on my computer & Mozilla combination
c) I don't like 'default' theme at all :P

Regarding the free button generators - where is the generator which can grok iso-8859-2 strings and render them correctly?

Hi Andrea,

thanks for the link. I have replaced has you said and it's fine.

To answer to your question regarding classical buttons, I think they are very "elegant". If they can be translated to foreign languages by a "free button generator" (can you say where?), I think you don't need to work on that. But I'll appreciate a lot if they can be translated.

Thanks Andrea. I'll replace the buttons in the portuguese package with the new ones.

My generator is able to handle them correctly - but that is not free.

Indeed - I tested the free online generators - one is not to be able to handle the czech accents, the other does not work currently.

Well - I am willing to create also classical style sets - under these conditions:

  • I would like to create all languages in one step, that means I need
    --  a list of all languages which need this set
    --  the definitive list of buttons needed for 1.0

If possible, could I have the following few strings translated into those languages currently available for SMF?

'subject_english' => 'SMF 1.0 (preview) for Charter Members!',
'message_english' => 'A preview of the final release, 1.0, is now available to all our Charter Members.  Many things have been resolved, and stability has increased.  Please upgrade as soon as possible, if you can.',

'subject_english' => 'SMF 1.0 Final Released',
'message_english' => 'SMF 1.0 has finally gone gold.  If you are using an older version, please upgrade as soon as possible - many things have been changed and fixed, and mods and packages will expect you to be using 1.0.  If you need any help upgrading custom modifications to the new version, please feel free to ask us at our forum.',


It'd be nice to have these all translated into the various languages before the release actually happens.  And, please pm these to either me or Bostasp - and remember to tell us which language they're for.

Thanks,

The English language files for SMF 1.0 (preview) are available currently for public download on the download page.  While this is without context, not much has been changed since RC2.  A file comparison tool should help you update with the changes made, so you can have your language files ready for 1.0.

Language changes from RC2:
* Help
    - Updated $helptxt['removeNestedQuotes'] slightly.
    - Corrected $helptxt['attachmentEnable'], which was way off.
    - Corrected $helptxt['m_queryless_urls'].
* index
    - The forum copyright now opens 'Lewis Media' in a new window (not mandatory.)
    - Added $txt['mail_send_unable'].
* ManageBoards
    - Updated $txt['mboards_moderators_desc'] to reduce confusion.
* ModSettings
    - Changed $txt['queryless_urls'].
* Packages
    - Renamed $txt['package_ftp_neccessary'] to $txt['package_ftp_necessary'].
    - Added $txt['package_no_zlib'].

Posting some questions here which arrived in my mailbox - maybe some other translator could post the replies...

I am testing the translation and I can see that the pm/am indications in  Last post column are not translated. Where  exactly do I have to go to translate them?

and


Quote from: spiros
Another problem with last post. In Greek what comes out is:

Τελευταίο μήνυμα στις Νοέμβριος 18, 2004, 04:59:43 pm
Last message at November 18, 2004, 04:59:43 pm


However, here the month (November) should be in genitive case (Νοεμβρίου) and the correct order for Greek would be 18 November, 2004, 04:59:43 pm (reverse order of month and day).

The same applies to the time indication in user information box.

Should I just change all the months in index.greek? What about the order change?

I think those are controlled by the time and date format which you can choose from the profile or cp.
Really sorry .. real life is demanding my full attention .. will be back soon hopefully :)

CapriSkye

i believe pm/am and order can be changed here:
$txt['timeformat_easy1'] = 'Month Day, Year, HH:MM:SS a/pm';
$txt['timeformat_easy2'] = 'Month Day, Year, HH:MM:SS (army time.)';
$txt['timeformat_easy3'] = 'YYYY-MM-DD, HH:MM:SS';
$txt['timeformat_easy4'] = 'DD Month YYYY, HH:MM:SS';
$txt['timeformat_easy5'] = 'DD-MM-YYYY, HH:MM:SS';
in Profile.*.php

Neol

...and the file(s) with the months name where are?! I have translated the month names in the file of index template (i think)
but it seems that is another one 'cos the translation I have done is only for the calendar :-\

A.M.A

Yes there are in index.english.php
am not sure tho if the lang_locale effects the time and date!
Really sorry .. real life is demanding my full attention .. will be back soon hopefully :)

Anyone who has a complete package from a language listed (or not) on the first page? If yes, check if it's compatible to SMF 1.0 preview (download page) and mail it to user@master-chiefs.de.

Please ask the other users on the list for already completed files of the translation, so that you can save yourself some work. You can also check other translations, but please contact the other authors if you change something.

What alphabet has klingon language? If its some kind of characters then we can probably make also klingon buttons with my translator. Have some sample texts?
