Extension for Google Translate...

Post by «THÖMÅS®©» » Mon Oct 23, 2017 10:29 pm

First, I am aware that there is an extension out there but not for 3.2x.... However...

Is someone prepared to adopt Google Translate so that users can select the language they use most from thier profiles in the same way that language packs are currently? I say this because I was told that the language packs only translate the board text and not the text contained in posts. Plus, the current language packs do not work on 3.2 at this stage, and I thought that this would be a better option all round.

The idea is that users can select the language that they use from thier profiles and it translates (via Google Translate) the entire board including posts in to the language the user selected. This sould also replace the language packs as well at the same time.

This one works with 3.2:

Maybe ask the author for the extra features you want?

Also, which language pack are you looking for that isn’t compatible with phpBB 3.2?

Thanks

I know, but this is not how I am wanting it to appear on our board.

I am looking to have it appear in a users profile settings (where you find your profile info boxes to enter text)
