To all the people who've volunteered to translate all the files in the lang_english directory currently in CVS (most recent commit being ~1.50am GMT 18th December) your time has come
This applies to:
Bulgarian : Boby Dimitrov
Chinese (Taiwan/Hong Kong) : ivictorc
Dutch (Netherlands) : BartVB/AndreStarTrek
Dutch (Belgium) : cheezycrust
Finnish : Bullitt
French : Helix
German : Rici/Thunder
Greek : arttor
Italian : teosno
Irish : paulca
Norwegian : water
Polish : SuperSonic
Portuguese : ?
Portuguese (Brazil) : Fallen
Russian : borz_off
Spanish : alexis
Swedish : Svenneman
Turkish : dizzywalker
We've put a tentative freeze on all the lang_english files. This means we'll change language variables only if you as translators run into an issue you cannot solve any way other than by modifying the actual layout of text. You may still see commits of lang_english files, these are intended only to fix spelling and English grammar issues ... hopefully.
Do be prepared though for possible updates to these files to be required.
Right, with that said, could everyone listed above please post here whether you'll be okay with obtaining all the files yourselves from CVS or if you'd prefer us to email them to you. Please
post even if you don't want them emailed, just say you'll CVS them yourself (this enables us to make we've not lost anyone along the way!).
Don't forget we'll be need translations of: lang_main, lang_admin, lang_faq and now lang_bbcode (please note the comments in that file!) as well as all email templates in the email directory.
In addition if you have access to a graphics package (particulary photoshop but anything that can successfully read photoshop .psd files which include layers) you can download the graphic construction kit for subSilver from:
http://phpbb.sourceforge.net/download/p ... er_SDK.zip
Please do not make this package available to anyone else!
It is being made available purely to allow translations to occur. You should produce translations of all existing buttons which contain text, don't worry about buttons which are purely symbols. If you aren't able to produce these button translations yourself, don't panic! Please let us know and we can work something out.
When you've finished a translation please return it to us at:
and we'll commit it to CVS and package it up for separate download.
Good luck and thanks for helping
