phpBB supporting multi-lingual WITHOUT download?

Post by Skuzzie » Mon Feb 18, 2008 12:28 am

Heya, I wish to mod my forum in order to support several languages other than English, along with English included as the main language. Here is a copy of the link to my forum: http://mb01.site-forums.com/index.htm?s ... cb6aa25075.

Now what I wish to have is at the top somewhere (prob above the announcements section), is a drop-down menu with a selection of languages such as German, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese, Indonesian, Chinese, Dutch (pretty much any language that is out there), due to the fact that people from all over the world use this external forum. Now once the person selects the language in which they wish to view the forum in, I would like it to automatically translate the forum, as it is, into the selected language.

Umm, if possible, could anyone supply me an example of all the coding for the translation of at least one of these languages, with instructions as I am fairly new to this and it is for a school thing.

Thanks to anyone in whom can help.

-Skuzzie

Moving from convertors to MOD requests since this is a MOD request and has nothing to do with converting from one message board software to phpBB.

Oops! :oops:

Skuzzie,
What do you mean by "WITHOUT download?"

There are MODs for phpBB2 where you can select a language from a dropdown box on the Index page and one that will select a language from your browser settings, but these will only change the board language. They will not change the language of the message text. To change the language of the message text, the only solution I can think of is Babelfish. You can put this on your forum and it will translate the page that is being viewed. You can put this on your forum very easily with the script from here, Add Babel Fish Translation to your site..

Moved to 3.0 MOD Requests then :)

Although I'm not sure if the OP will be able to add any MODs seeing as he's hosted on forummotion.

If i am correct, i think he means a mod he can do without needing Upload access to his site.
Since he site is hosted on a pre-mod hosting site, he cannot upload new mods.

@Skuzzie You will not be able to modify your site. Not at all. If you want a new feature you'll need to request it from the forummotion site owners.
