Re: Let's make this forum multilingual! (Calling for language authors)

I could help with a Tagalog/Filipino translation, but it seems FluxBB doesn't have such language pack

Great. Give me another day or two to pack up and send you the phrase tables.

Re: Let's make this forum multilingual! (Calling for language authors)

I got the email Ralph, thanks. I currently finished common.php and userlist.php, which you can see at my git repository. Are the files in the tar you sent to me licensed under the GPLv2, or in the public domain?

Re: Let's make this forum multilingual! (Calling for language authors)

It was installed some years ago from a FluxBB 1.5.10 distribution, which I believe was under GPLv2, although not all files are stamped.

Re: Let's make this forum multilingual! (Calling for language authors)

Hello, like danielroque I could help with brazilian portuguese. I've been using Devuan for the past weeks and felt in home. I've been thinking in some way to help and I believe that assist with translation may be a tiny but usefull start. Let me know if it is possible.

Hi

Should we make Sweden, Norway and Denmark in one Scandinavian forum. If we need to.

Re: Let's make this forum multilingual! (Calling for language authors)

Ok. My fault. I've let my team of developers drag their feet about getting forum translations installed and now there is a small pile waiting. I'm now reasonably hopeful though, that by having a big bowl of peanuts as bounty, they will succeed in making forum translation available for distributed maintenance in a near future.

Re: Let's make this forum multilingual! (Calling for language authors)

Yikes! yikes  I realise it's been 3 years ( yikes ) since offering the Dutch translation! I've been busy but got distracted. Quite a lot is done, but certainly not everything.

I'll dig up what I have but unfortunately Thunderbird threw me a hissyfit last year and I've lost access to my (archived) emails. Rather, my entire mailbox is present, but not recognised by TB. That's subject of another thread though.

Re: Let's make this forum multilingual! (Calling for language authors)

Thanks, and there's now a new setup for forum translations, via a git project https://git.devuan.org/devuan/forum-lang

To make a new or existing language:

  1. Fork the project, typically as a personal project at the git store. (*)

  2. For a new language: copy the whole English directory tree into a new sibling directory tree that is named by the target language in that language.

  3. Go through the files and replace the phrase part for each mapping as well as text portions in the mail templates. This is the actual authoring work. (**)

  4. Submit a "pull request" for inclusion into the devuan/forum-lang project. (***)

  5. Rest.

(*) It is feasible to clone into a personal workspace elsewhere than the git store as long as that workspace later is available to service the eventual pull request. But it's significantly less effort for us to merge it if you rather use the fork button on the web interface and make it a personal project on Devuan's git store.

(**) It is of course important to leave everything other than the phrase part as is.

(***) Again, it's easiest for us if you use the pull request button on web interface for submitting the pull request.

Thanks.

Re: Let's make this forum multilingual! (Calling for language authors)

Thanks for that. It seems I've lost the work I'd done already, so I'll go the Git route. May take a while though.
