I spent a lot of time fussing with this page last night:

http://www.digitaldevildb.com/maintenance/locales/es/

It's still not ready... but you can pretty safely play with what is there. Emilio has been given Spanish translation privileges... everyone else, well there isn't a ton you can do tongue

If you try to, you'll see that you can probably translate the few phrases that are there already.

I just noticed today this page^ looks very messed up on even older Firefox browsers (perhaps also based on DPI)

I guess I'll have to browser test it when I get a chance sweatdrop

Ok!

I think we're in business for translating the website...

You should be able to translate stuff like "Further Reading" now Emilio if you go to this page while logged in:

http://www.digitaldevildb.com/maintenance/locales/es/

If you're not using Firefox3 or Google Chrome the page might look funny for now, so download one of those already if you need to tongue

I added a number of stuff for you to translate, so please try to use the page asap so I can see how everything works out ok.

As you can guess I have to personally add stuff to the translation pool. Basically I have to add extra code around printed text in the WordPress theme files. So that is one more thing I will have to be continually working on I guess. I will let you know when there is stuff that needs translating.

Also whenever you want to, if you wanna translate a page or two, I'll try to get on making that work.

I still need to fix links inside post/page bodies so they don't change back to English on you as well sweatdrop


Anyway, using the page above^ is very simple. Just find something on the page that needs translating and hit the "translate" link for it. Then textbox should be created, and just put your translation in there. If you see any special looking symbols, try to preserver those for now ok (I can fix them if I gotta)

Once you've translated as many phrases as you like, you need to preview them by hitting any of the "compile revision" buttons which should be available beneath each translation box (for convenience)

That will show you your changes, and if you're happy, hit the "commit revision" button, and that should actually change the website translation if everything works.

You can see your changes by going to:

http://www.digitaldevildb.com/es/?nocache (for Spanish)

And navigating to a page with something you wanted to translate. Your translation should be there, if not make sure "nocache" is in your address bar.


Anyway, please try this system out asap and let me know how it works out for you smokin

Ok... you've done fine so far, but keep in mind you can translate more than one at a time before "committing the revision". Each revision is kind of a bit of work for the server... but it's no big deal if you just translate one phrase sometimes.

I already encountered a problem in here, see some of the words use "tildes" (I don't know the translations of that word sick) this thing: "´" the thing is, I got an error every time I use words like "Anfitrión", I need to write them like "Anfitrion" without the symbol.

This is the error I get:

Thanks, this is good to know... I'll sort it out, for now just leave these blank so we don't forget to do them right ok smokin

PS: Let me know if the page ever gets messed up... I might have to roll back a revision. No big rush, this is just the debugging phase (I had to program all of this from scratch)

I'll take care of this asap, but not today...

Plus my internet access is a bit funny right now. Most likely I'll work on the IMAGINE page some first, which is easier to do when I can only get to a slower internet connection frown

Pretty neat though isn't it... there aren't that many websites on the internet with this state-of-the-art technology yet biggrin

edited: Once everything is really in gear, I hope we can find other translators to help with as many languages as possible...

Until now, everything is working smoothly! biggrin Just a few things:

1) The issue with the "´"
2) I'm not able to click the "translate" button on a specific phrase, I guess is because I already have too much mistakes and I can't translate it, no matter what I do, even if I don't use "´" or "¡" which I think it was the problem the first times I tried to translate it.

I guess for now, that's the only issues I've encountered. Also I already tried committing a couple of phrases at the same time and it runs smoothly, no problems. smokin

EDIT: One other thing, once I made a successful translation I cannot click again the "translation" button.

Actually I just fixed a number of bugs I also noticed... probably most if not all of the same probs you're having^

Try it, and let me know if anything like this is still giving you trouble. As for the special characters though, I'm afraid that will have to be put off a little longer until I really have time to do some light research smokin

Still no fix for the special characters tonight, but I have a system for adding new phrases (without losing the old ones) in place now.

Also there are a few more things for you to translate when you get a chance smokin

There will be a lot more to come later as well...

Actually the only one you probably need to translate is "Forum Discussion" ...the rest is basically already translated by the default theme's translation file which I have setup to automatically copy from when possible (though it won't go into effect until the next revision)

Oh, there is also this one:

%1$s by %2$s at %3$s

If that gives you any trouble let me know, but if you click on the sources file it will show you where it is used in the code (if it's up to date)

The %1$s just substitutes the first variable -- in that case the date. If you think it's more natural to move the date / author / etcetera around then you can feel free to just switch the numbers about. Just use whatever words you need to glue it together (ie. in English 'by' and 'at' are used)
