Title: SimplePortal Translations
Post by: Nathaniel on October 14, 2008, 11:20:45 PM
SimplePortal has now been translated into nine languages, that's right nine different languages! Our translators have been working hard on these languages strings since SimplePortal Classic 2.0.5 was released, and already eight separate translations are available in UTF8 and Non-UTF8, with many more to come!

You can download the new SimplePortal Translations from the new "SimplePortal Translations" section of our dedicated Downloads page (http://simpleportal.net/index.php?action=download). The currently available translations are Brazilian Portuguese, English British, French, Italian, German, Greek, Norwegian, Portuguese and Turkish. The translations can be installed like a normal modification, so just upload and install them with your package manager, and you are done! :)

A special thanks goes to our many Translators:
Nascar, Manu, GravuTrad, Gazmanafc, Kosedragen, hadesflames, *eren, Aaron, Mavn, joomlamz, tatore, nikan, asude and vatrsa.

We currently have these other translations in progress:
Dutch, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish.

If you are interested in helping to translate SimplePortal into another language or moderating an international support board then please contact either Nathaniel or Jade, via PM or IM (MSN/IRC/AIM/etc).

We hope you enjoy using the new translations!

Nequil,
Just as a note, the translation at the link posted by vatrsa, won't install as a mod. You will have to manually copy the files inside into your '/Themes/default/languages/' folder. :)

I have a sugesstion. But I don't now if it's doable so don't shoot please. :)
I don't now nothing about php and stuff and I dont know what can be translated and what not, but if someone would post the strings that can and had to be translated, I can translate them. To Romanian in my case.
Example:
english = romanian
add an article = adauga un articol
...and so on

If so, anybody could translate the SP to theyr own language iven if they have no programing knowlege.
And someone more skilled, from the SP team. could make after that the replacement of the particular language strings in a language package.
I hope this is not a stupid sugesstion. :) If so...just ignore it.  :)

@Geri,
It is possible for people that don't have programming knowledge to translation SimplePortal into another language. SMF and SimplePortal use a 'language string' system, meaning that language strings or words/phrases are stored in a certain location. Making a translation is quite easy, as a team member (me) will do all the packaging, meaning that translators only need to translate the actual strings.

If you are interested in making a translation for SimplePortal, then please send a PM to either me or Jade.

@Manu,
That is because there are no translations that currently work with SimplePortal 2.1.1. I will try to update the page shortly, and put as many updated translations there as possible. We are looking at redoing the downloads area of SimplePortal in the near future, that should allow people to download archived version of translations, that work with older version of SimplePortal.

English language files inside the package. Just extract the compressed package and you will see.
