Danish translation

posts: 17 Denmark

Firstly I'll apologize if I'm posting in the wrong forum. Please point me in the right direction if there are any better suited.

I've set up a couple of small sites using TikiWiki and to get a consistent Danish user interface, I've had to enhance and improve the da/language.php that comes with tiki-6.2.

I might as well share this effort with the community, so I would like to know if there still is an active Danish translator, with whom I could get in touch?

If not, how can I share my translational efforts? I've browsed many of these tiki-sites without finding any useful information on who is in charge of translation. Information usually points in all directions and leads to dead ends.

A final request: Where do I find the complete authoritative language.php of all words and phrases used in TikiWiki CMS Groupware? The Danish language.php is rather incomplete as (nearly) all not translated phrases are missing, making further translation difficult. I would very much prefer the complete set of phrases with the not yet translated still in English.

Any information on this subject will be much appreciated.

Thank you for the reply. I've watched Philippe Back's video and no doubt it makes a meaningful translation easier to see the text in context.

A few additional questions, though.
As I mentioned i my original post, I've already done a bit of work. Is there any way to get that merged into your current language.php, or do I have to type it all in once more?

When I translate something as shown in the video, how and when do I get the language.php that I expect to be the result?

Quite frankly, I do this translation because I need it. And I need it now and not when the next Tiki version is released. smile

Request commit access and commit your improvements into (at least) proposals/6x. See through the page Commit to learn how to get commit access, and where to commit to that branch.

The best thing would be that you also commit your changes to "Trunk". Request help on Irc when you are to do that for the first time.

Log in as admin to your site, and go to this type of url:

http://yourdomain.org/get_strings.php?lang=XX

(where X is the language code for your language)

Good luck, and post any further question that you have here (and consider helping others when you know the answer :-) Otherwise, getting answers in forums is not sustainable.
And for urgent things, consider asking them on the Irc channel. There are higher chances to get more feedback in the European afternoon/evening (when Canadian and USA tikizens are awake also)

Cheers
