I have used the "ca_AD.php" file to translate Module Form to catalan language. But, when I visit the forum in my website, not all the words are translated to catalan (and I have translated them in "ca_AD.php" file). I don't understand which is the problem, because (for example) the text "2 Missatges in 1 Topics by 1 members", we find in forum header, appears in english. And in "ca_AD.php" file I have:

$lang['ca_AD']['']['IN'] = 'a';
$lang['ca_AD']['']['BY'] = 'per';
$lang['ca_AD']['']['MEMBERS'] = 'membres';
$lang['ca_AD']['']['POSTS'] = 'Missatges';
$lang['ca_AD']['']['TOPICS'] = 'Temes';

I don't understand why "Missatges" appears in catalan, and "in 1 Topics by 1 members" appears in english. I don't know if I have to do something else.

I hope someone can help me.

Find the template or include and see, if the text is replaced by _t() functions. The second step would be to check if the funtion really works.

This is a bug in SSviewer with the template include files....

I try to change T_ rules in the template from :

<% _t(SELECT','Select') %>


<% _t('','Select') %>

This does work, but involves a lot of replaces.

There was a patch, but the SSviewer has changed so I realy don't have a clue how to apply the patch in 2.3.3:

Does anyone knows a patch that works in 2.3.3 ???

It feels a little bit hacky, but this is what I did to make te forum translatable:

In your Forum Template files Find and replace all occurences of




In the language files use Regex find & replace to replace all namespaces to Forums:




Where nl_NL is your language.

This made all template includefiles translatable for me with SS version 2.3.3 and Forum version 0.2.3

Thank you very much!

It has worked well in some cases, but not all.

Somewhere I had to manually translate without use the _t() function.
