Multi language set up (59 posts)

    Hey I was wondering if there are any mods so I can have a multi language option for users...so they could choose their language. A perfect example is on wordpress.com, when you join you'll see.

    I made some print screens of what I mean here,

    I have the same question. Half of my users will use english and the other half spanish. Can this be done with a single installation of WPMU?

    As expected there is interest, I wonder if there is a mod, based on the interest it looks promising.

    Well, let's see. The only site AFAIK that has done this is wp.COM. And they don't release everything they do.

    what is this, a neopets board all of a sudden?

    I've never seen more meetoos since Teletubies!

    Internationalisation isn't something that can be done with a simple plugin folks, sorry.

    The easiest way to internationalisan, or at the very least, is translation of your themes. Themes that we all use in the WPMu world that is.

    Thats a start.

    If you happen to know a second, third or even a fourth language, translation is always welcomed for the core files as well. This would include the comments of course.

    If we were using Smarty template engine, I think some of this would be alot easier for the community as a whole. Thats a whole different ball of wax that requires a huge amount of recoding, so lets forget I mentioned it!! (**Ducks from the tomatoes being thrown at him from hard working coders**)

    Eventually, I think my own site will need internationalisation. How may languages that will be is hard to say, but I'm quite sure as WPMu grows, so will it's international interest. Once the user community grows, I'm sure we will see people step up to the plate and contribute where they can.

    We don't need 300 "me too"'s stuffing up the forums. IF something were available, there are any number of us who would have jumped onto the topic.

    I'm sure there's more to this topic, but thats al lI have for the moment. Can't wait to see where multilanguage will go in the future, it will certainly be a major part of some peoples WPMu envirionment.

    I think having a thread where people say 'me too' IS usefull. It shows that there is interest.
    I'd gladly pay for an internationalization tool.

    I have alot of Arabic and Japanese users and they asked if they could at least have the control panel in their own language.

    We're asking two different things here though. Langauage support within wordress and the ability to choose it during setup.

    Language support is already in there and has been pretty much since the project started. Same as regular wordpress.

    - Put the *.mo file into /wp-includes/languages/ subdirectory
    - Add in the define statement to wp-config.php

    There are a number of language files over at http://wpmudevorg.wordpress.com and linked to here in the forums. I have eight of them already on my own system. For reference, I found them by looking for them.

    if you want to have the option during signup, please feel free to code it and submit the code to trac. All you're doing with all these "me toos" is once again expecting someone to do something for you and, gotta admit, it's getting very very old around here. It's not "useful" even if you think it is. All you;re doing is pissing off those who are here every day trying to help out.

    Now if someone would like to step up, write the code and release it, please feel free. Some of us have already contributed quite a few plugins and workarounds here. It would be nice to see someone else step once in a while.

    Mike,
    Can you confirm or deny my understanding of this?
    - When setting up a WPMU site, the admin sets the "site language." The main page of the site appears in this language, as do the admin pages.
    - The admin can make translation files available. These files are those used in WordPress (.org, classic, call it what you will).
    - This is not yet available, and is what you suggest someone could code: the blogger selects a language from the admin-defined menu at blog creation time.
    Sorry if the above is wrong - or if it's right, and shouldn't need restating. But I'd really like to get it clearer in my feeble mind than it is now.
    Andrew

    With the plugin "Gengo" you get multilingual blogs:

    Don't know if it works on WP MU, too.

    Gengo will work with WPMU, but it needs some tweaking, as it requires for running on WordPress 2.2 and greater.. I'm actually working on it and I'll release a patch for Gengo as soon as I end debug.

    Actually, the main change to make it work is path related, and you'll need to switch some GENGO_DIR into GENGO_BASE_DIR. You can fetch our diff here:

    http://dev.pixline.net/wphackers/20071026-gengo.diff

    Hope it helps. Please share your results here :-)

    Hey Pixline, thanks for the diff. Is this the result of your debugging (is thi sthe patch) or are you still debugging (will a different patch come later)?
    I mean: will this diff work, if so, is this a plugin for mu-plugins or regular plugins?

    Thanks, cheers, Bike

    @Bike: I'm working on it, and I hope to have more fixes to add and release, but it works; you can see it working on http://shababfm.org (which is WordPress 2.2.3) with just that patch, and I'm starting to work with WPMU.

    I'll upgrade this thread with new patches as soon as I get it really working, and if you want to make some testing, please drop me a line at supporto/at/pixline/dot/net

    Also, if you're willing to help me saving money for a testing machine, I've started a ChipIn for this project: http://pixline.chipin.com/gengo-patch-for-wpmu

    If you think I can help you, feel free to help me.
    I love win-win situations :)

    I'm actually working on the whole Category schema in Gengo, but without categories support it works just fine, in both WordPress 2.2.x and WPMU.

    In this week I'll release some code and instruction about it. If someone wants to help debug, please respond to this thread or drop a line to: paolo/at/pixline/dot/net

    Thank you!

    pixline, how VERY exciting!

    i saw you just created http://code.google.com/p/gengo-wp23/ for your Gengo port project. i will be watching this closely and as soon as i have time to create a test setup, i will be starting to test - both on wp2.3 and wpmu1.3

    if you have any particular tests in mind, contact me on ravanhagen (a) gmail : com

    Yes, I've opened a google code project, and now I'm hoping to find at least one more coder :) Also, reporting all the bugs you can find on that codebase in the tracker, would be really nice and useful.
