Hi all,

As a part of our default theme update for v11 we'd like to refresh our right-to-left support. This isn't something that's ever been through a testing cycle, and I'd like to change that now.

We're looking for someone/people to finish a language pack for a right-to-left language, and then an ocProducts developer will work directly with you to make sure it displays well.

Sounds like a good deal to me, so please post in this topic if you're interested.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

We didn't get any response on this yet unfortunately.

It really only makes sense for Composr to either have fully tested rtl support, or no rtl support in the default theme at all. This is because the rtl support adds extra complexity which all themers are exposed to – so if it's not actively used then the community isn't getting the benefit from it (increased community size) to justify that additional complexity.

So regrettably we'll likely strip the support for v11 if we can't get one of the above languages translated. I really would rather avoid that, but we have to do what's best for the software. I've reached out to one person who enquired about the rtl support previously to see if he can assist.

That's fantastic Saeb, I'm really happy to hear that :).

Can you confirm the language? I think it's probably Arabic… if so, that's partly translated already so that will help you a bit.

If you have any questions relating to translation, please email Rajesh (rajesh@ocproducts.com) who did our Tamil translation and is here to help you in any way you need.

There is only one major issue
And it is also a very simple appearance, the cms template.
Because it is not beautiful
And persians are great importance to beauty
So please provide a beautiful and right-to-left template of your design
Because otherwise the persians do not use composr.

Hi,

The reason for this is we need to pay Google or Microsoft per-string, and I'm worried about the costs running out of control with all the different languages (and it's free software, so we don't have any income to cover this).

I suggest just having another tab open with Google translate, so you can copy and paste between them.

Also I'd focus on the highest priority resources, this one you have in the screenshot is a lower priority one I think as it only shows to administrators. You can sort the resource files by priority. Of course if you can get it all done that's great, but we'd settle for just the urgent and high priority strings.
