How to install translations?

Hi,

Great to have this in needed language. However, I can't install it. Trying with the zip file makes Joomla (latest version) say "XML file not found". Unzipped there is only an ini-file, which of corse isn't possible to install with the installer in Joomla. Do I need to exchange some file somewhere or how?

Thanks!

Zelda

Hi zelda,

see at this post where the ini files should go depending on your language :

http://www.chronoengine.com/forums/index.php?option=com_chronoforums&cont=posts&f=19&t=11180#p14256

so if your language is espanol then you will replace hu-HU with es-ES I think, so you must have the espanol installed as a language in joomla itself, get the espanol joomla language pack from joomla.org!

Cheers

Max

So if i understand all i need to do is go into this folder:

Joomla/administrator/language/fr-FR/

and then put these two small file right in there:

fr-FR.com_chronocomments.ini
fr-FR.mod_chronocomments.ini



And its should work?? Cause sadly for me its doesnt seem to work, actully not even sure all i need is to change the message of This field is required to something else in french would work but is that what i need to do??

Hi jseb,

From the downlaods page

These downloads are language translation packs for ChronoComments.
Note that not all packs contain all the possible language files. The full list is:
* language/xx-XX/xx-XX.com_chronocomments.ini
* administrator/language/xx-XX/xx-XX.com_chronocomments.ini
Note The two xx-XX.com_chronocomments.ini files are identical.

* language/xx-XX/xx-XX.plg_content_ChronoComments.ini
* language/xx-XX/xx-XX.mod_chronocomments.ini (not in use)

Hi jseb,

Joomla should automatically switch to use the default language for your site. Sorry, I don't know much about language configuration.

Alright well i know joomla is already using my french directory.

Alright i was just wondering if u could provide me with the latest version for french translation. Cause on the download page their is only two file witch one is the mod and apparently Chrono doesnt used that if i read properly the other forum. And i saw a french version earlyer on the forum but i am not to sure if its the right one. Just a link to the current one would be awsome i guess.

And their is no other way to translate this field is required? Custom message throught one of the windows??

Thanks!

¸

Hmm very good simple question. Wow k yeah i am guessing its Chronoforms i was hoping. I thought the comments where an option in chronoform... Hmm my mistake i guess, however from what i am reading right now, their is no chronoform translation yet due to some php coding different?

Thank in advance and sorry for my miss understanding of the chronocomments thingny

admin

Hi jseb,

Exactly, no Chronoforms translation yet available, hopefully soon!

Which files needs to be translated, i can make a translation from English, but which file?
Please give me a hint. THNX.

Found it: i changed components/com_chronocontact/jsmooValidation.js
Not a nice way.. but it works..

GreyHead

Hi boesch,

Moovalidation (and the mor recent LiveValidation in RC 4.11) supports custom error messages in the input title attribute - you could easily use some PHP to make this bilingual.

Movvalidation also supports custom error messages in separate divs that can be placed anywhere on the page.

Ho chronofroms translation?

I think, we need translate our forms ourselves. Every form is diferent.

I think, I copy my Lithuanian form, copy its HTML codes, translate it in English, German and make links in english and german website versions. Is this OK?

But I don't understand where and how should work chronocomments ?

GreyHead

Hi Beata,

Sorry, I hadn't noticed that this was the ChronoComments forum.

There are some language packs for ChronoComments in the download area and you can create your own by translating one of these and renaming the files to the new language.

1. What about my way which I described to translate forms?
2. Could you say something about comments, Where they appear? Below form? I have installed them, ho to configure them, is there any help?

GreyHead

Hi Beata,

We are in the ChronoComments Forusm here - which product are you asking about?

I don't know anything much about ChronoComments, I think that they appear after articles.

There are several ways to translate forms. The Multi-language plugin is good if there are only short text labels. If tehre are longer chunks of text then using a switch statement with different forms or different include files works well. I think that separate forms take too much maintentnace and I wouldn't use that approach.

You are creator of chronoforms and don't know about them???
I thought chronoforms are related only with forms, if no, I don't need them in this my website.
There are simple joomlacomments as well.

Go to see answer about multilanguage plugin....

GreyHead

Hi Beata,

No, I'm not the creator - that's Max (aka Admin here).

I know ChronoForms and ChronoConnectivity pretty well, don't know much about ChronoComments.

ChronoForms are about forms. ChronoComments is like JomComments.

Thank you for reply.

My website is simple hotel and I think I don't need some comments.
What about ChronoConnectivity... I didn't investigate yet, what it is.....
This will be in future
