Re: XOOPS 2.4.x Translations
It's good to have 2.4.x translation, and then go ahead and start working on 2.5.0 Alpha, reusing what we can from 2.4.x
And using Winmerge or something similar, it should be easy to spot any new language definitions that need translation.
Better add new strings to be added in the end or beginning of each file, this way saves more time for the translators.
Also to NOT recommend translating Alpha/Beta release, bcz there are huge amount of changes, something added in Alpha 2, may drop in Beta 3, and in RC2 to be added analogue of this thing. Some of the translators wasn't here during the Mith's XOOPS releases.....
Winmerge is ok for 2-3 files.... but for the whole core ?
Or maintain changelog for language files too, example:http://code.google.com/p/opencart/source/detail?r=105
Every file can be accessed via link, and the changes are marked in different color, also u can pick the diff files.
Every release of OC, have huge amount of changes to the language files, there is no stable (like XOOPS or Joomla), and this is the easiest way to find what's changed, where and what is not.
