Issues with Dutch translation (Posts split from "Composr evangelism")
Can you help me with export the language?
I translated a lot by rephrasing, so i have on my FTP a folder with lang_custom / ENG
In this folder there i see the changes i make into DUTCH.
How can i make it so, that i download this folder with folder?
Can i simple rename it to NL, and upload it here?
2nd, do i need all the files or just the xxxx.ini files or all the ini's incl the pne with the numbers on the end?
You can rename to NL, yes. Everything is on disk except user's language choice settings for your own site.
The xxxx.ini files are all that is needed from here (the numeric file extensions are backups of old revisions). If you translated Comcode pages (e.g. site/pages/comcode_custom/NL/help.txt you'd want them too. There are various things you can translate but the .ini files are the most important.
Ideally you'd export from Admin Zone > Structure > Addons, scroll down to "Create (export) an addon, from selected changed local files" at the bottom. From this screen there's an option to export a language to an addon.
If you just want to zip stuff up that's better than nothing though, people will work out to unzip it.
- 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.
