Re: XOOPS 2.6 Internationalization/Local support

Hi there,
I'm currently working on refactoring language definitions and I'm looking for help regarding problems you face during translations.

I wish to know special cases where the current definitions cannot be correctly translated into your language.

For example, I already know that the user gender can be a problem when you want to translate 'User %s has %s posts", or "You are registered!"
I also know that concatenation for "%s minutes" and "ago" should not be used because the order of "ago" is important. Instead we should use "%s minutes ago".

In Portuguese language, most of the times I can get around the gender issues by making the translation fit both genders, and when not possible I can append '(a)' to fit the female gender, ex:"Obrigado(a)" => Thanks. Is gender really important in other languages? If so, can you give me more examples where you cannot get around the gender issue?

Strings with ":", for example "Number of posts:", does the ":" need to be in the translation or can it be concatenated by the developer? I imagine it is required to be in the string for RTL support, please confirm.

Plural forms, in portuguese/english we can use something like "Has %s post(s)" when we are not sure if the number is plural or not. Is this possible for other languages also, or plural forms can be very different? Please give me examples of definitions that should have plural form support.

Thanks

I performed a new "standard installation" (next, next, next...) and now it worked... At first, as the modules are installed before of plugins, soon after finalizing the installation, the module page does not display the comments, but after updating the module, the options of notification system and comments appear


This should be fixed on SVN now. Installation of comments and/or notifications does not require modules updates anymore.

Yes, not only on register, it checks every POST request. Comments, contact forms, etc

I'm sorry, but xoops 2.6 requires "PHP version >= 5.3 (PHP 5.4+ is strongly recommended)" as stated in the release article.

And to conclude, seems to me that the comments plugin is not working, at least it does not appear in the modules (Page or Publisher)


If you install comments or notifications after installing publisher or page, you have to update those modules. Only after updating them, the configs for comments/notifications become available for those modules. The same applies if you decide to uninstall comments module, the configs will be displayed on publisher configs until you update it.

At this moment, this is the behaviour. Perhaps I can change it to make it more friendly.
