Release Notes:


1) In some places there are "raw" text strings not wrapped in any gettext() call - so they have no chance to be translated to another language.
2) Some strings are built up with multiple sentence fragments, each fragment using its own gettext() call, with variables concatenated between the fragments. This is a problem when translating to target languages that have different grammatical word orders. Fix these up so that the whole sentence is constructed with a single gettext() call wrapped in sprintf() with the needed %s parameter or %$1s, %$2s parameters to allow flexible run-time parameter insertion in a translated sentence.
3) Fix any other wacky internationalization seen along the way.

I have already done /usr/local/www/diag*.php to get a feel for what is needed. I am happy to continue over the next few days - I don't think it should take very long.

Internationalization effort is about complete. Any further issues can be addressed as found.

#2 Updated by Phillip Davis about 5 years ago

I am gradually getting through /usr/local/www - keep getting distracted by finding other things along the way!
I have finished up to services_d* - and I know some others submitted stuff recently for later files in /usr/local/www
I will continue my "quick" scan through the UI code and hopefully finish by the end of the week.

#3 Updated by Phillip Davis about 5 years ago

I finished reviewing files in /usr/local/www and /etc/inc
The last commit is
This is generally done and those who work on translations can now get on with their job based on a stable set of strings to translate for 2.3.
