Change of language

Postby Johannes3641 » Fri Sep 11, 2009 2:32 am

Hi,

I am from the Netherlands and I want to translate all the necessarily text into Dutch, so that my clients are not confronted with English text on logon etc.

Which files has to be translated or is there a possibility of language files.

Thank you.

Hans

Many of the email messages sent out and the List HTML screens can be either customized and translated on a per list basis or globally.

Per list, you'll want to log into your list control panel and go to:

Manage Copy -> Email Templates

and:

Manage Copy -> HTML Screen Templates

Globally, you can edit these in the Config.pm file:

http://dadamailproject.com/support/docu ... _templates

http://dadamailproject.com/support/docu ... _templates

There are other separate templates that control the rest of Dada Mail:

http://dadamailproject.com/support/docu ... _templates

basically, you'll have to edit the files in the,

dada/DADA/Template/templates

directory.

There's a lot of files.

Hi Justin,

Thank you for your reply.
The absence of a language-file means that I have to start all over again after a update.

I will look into it to see how many files have to be altered.

Regards,
Hans

Can you give me an example of another program where it's easier to translate? Something that has a language-file? I can use it for inspiration for the next version of Dada Mail,

It could be many.

The files in the,

dada/DADA/Template/templates

aren't ever changed, except for a major point release, so for minor point releases, they've stayed relatively the same between 3.0.0, 3.0.1, 3.0.2, 3.0.3, etc. That spans a full year and a half. When 3.1 gets released, these template files will be changed.

Hi Justin,

I am using on my website ( http://www.campinglamaillardiere.nl )a guestbook called Lazarus Guestbook, which is available in many languages. On the website of my daughter ( http://www.jmvoile.com ) the guestbook is multilingual.

The translation was done by users of the guestbook.

The website of Lazarus Guestbook is: http://carbonize.co.uk/Lazarus/download.php

Regards,
Hans

Thanks.

I'm not sure the way the Guestbook program works, would work well with Dada Mail, just because Dada Mail is a much larger program and there would be different problems to address, but thank you for the URL.

to download magento go here :

http://www.magentocommerce.com/download

you can add french translation after install magento (it s very easy to install) with this link :

http://www.magentocommerce.com/extensio ... guage-pack

you will see that magento integrate a module to install directly all extention! for exemple after magento install, you can go in "magento connect" in the back office, in magento connect you just have to copy past this sentence "magento-community/Locale_Mage_community_fr_FR' and click "ok" and magento connect automaticly install the french package...

If you want some details about the translating method of magento you can contact the autor of our french package here :

http://www.meliweb.fr/index.php/contact.html

his web name is "SEL" it's a professionnal of open source i m sure he will help you about this translating system!

you don't need to install magento to view the system because by default english is include like other language (whith language files)

Hi there,

For an example of program that uses a single language file, you should take a look to one of the Dada Mail Competitor : WAnewsletter.
http://phpcodeur.net/wascripts/wanewsletter/
It's a French program but once installed, it's multilanguage.
This PHP web system use a single language file for the whole program. You want a new language ? Just take a tour on their web site to see if it's not already available, else, you can just translate the file and declare it in the program.
You're done !

On the other hand, WAnewsletter seems much less user friendly than Dada Mail. It does not use Ajax, and is not maintained since oct 2006.
But I had to choose WAnewsletter because of the language : I installed it on a spanish website where the ones in charge of sending mails were only spanish speaking persons. They needed the whole interface in spanish.

You should really concentrate your work on the multilanguage option since obviously a lot a people need that kind of program and does not speak the Shakespeare language.

Thanks !
