No language pack of British English for phpBB 3.1.x?

Post by Darloup » Thu Apr 14, 2016 1:37 am

Hello,

I tried to download the British English language pack for phpBB 3.1.x from this address: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/tran ... h_english/

This pack is only for phpBB 3.0.12. Any chance to get the pack for phpBB 3.1.x?

With my anticipated thanks,

Henry

British English is included when you download phpBB. You should not need a language pack.

Hello cprgolds,

My forum is French by default. I therefore downloaded the complete French package from phpbb-fr in order to install my forum.

British English is therefore a language which I wish to add. It's be nice to get a link towards the official language pack for British English in order to be able to download it for 3.1.x!

Regards,

Henry

It is already included. It is in the language/en folder.

Hello stevemaury,
It is already included. It is in the language/en folder.
I know, but I downloaded phpBB from here: http://www.phpbb-fr.com/telechargements/ - "Pack Français" which includes only the French version.

And I can't find the British English language pack on phpBB.com for 3.1.x.

The only thing I'm saying is that there is no separate British English language pack available on phpbb.com, the official link https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/tran ... h_english/ leading to a 3.0.x version of this language pack.

Many international users will install phpBB in their own language and, perhaps, they'll wish to add the British English pack. This is not currently available on phpbb.com

Regards,

Henry

You can download a fresh set of phpBB files from the Downloads page.
From that package, only upload the language/en folder to your board. That should do it. :)

Seems it hasn't been updated yet.

What you can do is download the phpBB software from here and retrieve the British English folder from the language directory.

Thanks

Hello,

I followed your advice, downloaded the phpBB software, retrieved the British English folder from the language directory and uploaded it on my server.

British English is now installed and recognised - thanks!

But I've noticed something weird:

In the ACP, under Customize/Language Management/Language Packs/, if I click on British English, I get this message:
Language pack details
British English
English name: British English
Local name: British English
ISO code:en
Language pack author: phpBB Limited
The following language files are missing from the “British English” language folder
Missing language files
» LICENSE
» VERSION.md
» composer.json
Where are those missing files?!

Regards,

Henry

I don't belive it needs those files. the board is expecting to already have english installed. usually those

Hello Lumpy Burgertushie,
I don't belive it needs those files. the board is expecting to already have english installed. usually those
I have the very same problem with my Spanish language pack:
Language pack details
Español (Tú)
English name: Spanish (Casual Honorifics)
Local name: Español (Tú)
ISO code: es-x-tu
Language pack author: phpBB España
The following language files are missing from the “Español (Tú)” language folder
Missing language files
» VERSION.md
» composer.json
Here, two files are missing (not three).

The only language pack that doesn't produce this error message is the French Language pack (the local version downloaded from phpBB-fr).

I may be overtly perfectionist, but I don't think it is normal to get error messages when one downloads official language packs from phpBB.com.

I just want to solve this irritating problem! :mrgreen:

Regards,

Henry

sounds like something that whoever put together the french version of phpbb created. apparently , the 3.1 versions of the languages from here do not have those files in them.

the phpbb version that you get from here does not look for those files since those files are not supposed to be in the language download to begin with.

And this one of the reasons why phpBB should always be downloaded from here, together with the language packs, so that "strange" things like this do not happen.

I don't agree, because (believe it or not) there are a lot of people in the world who don't understand english. Those people will have the need to download localized versions of phpbb from sites communicating in their language.
I agree that even those localized versions should (as a fallback) include the english language pack, but why has it become a problem for phpbb.com to provide a current english language pack in the download area?

I don't think it's a problem.. It just hasn't been added.

I agree it would be better to just add it.
So I've created a ticket in the Website Tracker for this issue. :)
