Translating Procedure

At present there are several languages needing translation.  We need someone to translate an existing pack that is available to the Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Serian, French, etc languages.

-Download the YaBB 2.3.1, if able to translate English,( if another is needed, download that language pack also).

- The English language files (or one understood and able to read) are in the 3 folders (for example cgi-bin/yabb2/Help/English, cgi-bin/yabb2/Languages/English, public_html/yabbfiles/Buttons/English)  

- Rename all "English" folders to the proper name for your language (i.e. Norwegian = Norsk, Spanish = Espanol)  

-Translate all *.help, *.lng, *.txt files (do not change file names or anything with a $ in front of e.g. $num_message ).

- Translate all graphics (buttons) into new buttons, if you can, if you are unable to create and design buttons, just supply the Translated wording for each button (Provide a list e.g. English = Arabic)

- Save the translated files (keeping directory structure of translated files) package with the language and version it is intended for (i.e. "Spanish_YaBB_2.3.1")  

- Reply to the Language Pack Board on the YaBB Community Forum with a notice that you have created a new pack and attach a Zip pack containing the files.

Basically edit (translate) only the highlighted
example:
Code
Select All
### Board Rules mod start ###
'rules' => 'Board Rules',
'rules1' => 'Enable Board Rules',
'rules2' => 'Rules Title',
'rules3' => 'Rules', 



do not change text on left

Basically, to change everything from 'left to right' to 'right to left' you'll just have to add: dir="rtl" to your 'html' tag:

In "default.html" find:

Code
Select All
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en"> 





and change it to:

Code
Select All
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en" dir="rtl">
