If someone would like to under take this project..
At present there is No existing Esperanto lanquage pack.  We need someone to translate an existing pack that is available to the Esperanto lanquage.

-Download the YaBB 2.1, if able to translate English,( if another is needed, download that language pack also).
- The English lanquage 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 = Esperanto)
- Save the translated files (keeping directory structure of translated files) package with the language and version it is intended for (i.e. "Spanish_YaBB_2.1")  
- Reply to this Topic with a notice that you have created a new pack and attach a Zip pack containing the files.

Uhmmmm, i don't know the first thing about doing this - is it likely to be especially complicated or difficult to do ?
Smiley I'm up for the challenge, but I'm not sure how long it might take me to do this as likesay i don't even know what might be involved in making a language pack.

But sure, esperanto is easy-peasy where fiddly characters are concerned.

It has only a few characters which don't exist in english, and they're all pretty standard ones -

There are s^ , g^, h^, j^ , c^ and u^ (where the little hats after each character are meant to be above them rather than beside them) , so i would imagine that hopefully this shouldn't be TOO hard, even for a newbie like me to attempt ?

There's nothing stopping an esperanto pack from being done -- we have Russian and Chinese packs, and they have more exotic characters. Wink If you feel like doing the translation yourself, post here and someone will make you a topic. From there, you can get help in learning how to translate our .lng files.

Smiley I like to chat in esperanto, as do a number of my friends.

One of these friends once asked me if it were possible to install an esperanto language pack for YaBB, and I replied that it wasn't.

But, now that i post at this forum, i reckoned that there is no harm in me expressing a desire to use YaBB in esperanto (ie, able to input esperanto characters, there are only 5 or 6 new letters which are exclusive to esperanto) , in case anybody reads this post who might be interested in coding something like that.
Smiley ?
