Adding a language
1) Make a copy of the folder Views/en and call it the language your creating a translation for, i.e cy for welsh:
.. or use a language that has already been translated from the emoncms_languages repo, i.e cy...
https://github.com/openenergymonitor/emoncms_languages (feel free to send a pull request with your translations)
2) If your creating a new translation, translate each view script inside your language folder.
3) Add your language to the language options in index.php:
Change the line:
$lang = $_GET['lang']; if ($lang=='en') $_SESSION['lang'] = $lang; else $lang = null;
to (with your chosen language code)
$lang = $_GET['lang']; if ($lang=='en' || $lang=='cy') $_SESSION['lang'] = $lang; else $lang = null;
2) Add your language to the user_view language selector.
Until a better implementation is created, this needs to be done for each language.
add (or your chosen language)
<option selected value="en">English</option>
Repeat this for the user_view that belongs to the language your adding and set the selected attribute to the added language.
Any thoughts on a better way of implementing this is as always welcome. To engage in discussion regarding this post, please post on our Community Forum.
