You may also create new threads to support additional languages if you are prepared to help out... please don't just create a thread asking for that language to be supported!
First of all, locate your swisscenter installation directory. If you're running on windows with Simese then this will be in one of the following locations (note I'm using slashes instead of backslashes because this forum software eats them up):
- C:/program files/simese/data
- C:/program data/simese/data (this is a hidden directory on Vista)
- C:/documents and settings/all users/application data/simese/data (a hidden directory in windows)
Now translate the english strings into your own language.
NOTE: You might find it useful to go into the "Advanced Options" section on the Swisscenter configuration page and turn off the caching of language strings (under "Cache options") if you want to check how your translations look as you go along.
A swisscenter languiage file consists of a mapping from internal program ID (eg: "ADD_PLAYLIST") to the actual text that should be displayed to the user (eg: "Add to your playulist") as follows:
- Code: Select all
<ID> = <text>
NOTE: The text cannot span multiple lines. If a line break or paragraph break are required within the text then markup tags should be used (see below).
The <text> may contain a limited number of markup tags which are indicated by square brackets and perform an identical function to their HTML counterparts. The following tags are supported:
- br and /br
- em and /em
- p and /p
- b and /b
- i and /i
- ul and /ul
- ol and /ol
EG: In the ID below, the number of tracks that has been found within the database is substituted for the %s within the string... so a search returning 4 tracks would be displayed to the user as "4 Tracks"
- Code: Select all
MANY_TRACKS= %s Tracks
Finally, Lines that begin with a hash (#) are considered to be comments and are ignored.
