Spanish es_ES translations

Postby SergioRuiz » Mon Aug 08, 2005 5:53 am


I officially announce that I'm working on es_ES translation of OJS 2.1. If anyone would like to help, you can contact me at

I would also like to ask moderators how can I do. I have some doubts on translations I would like to ask Spanish speakers, should I do it on the general phorum or a temporal sub-phorum can be created to work on this matter?

Thanks in advanced. Best regards,

Sergio Ruiz

p.d.: as early pointed by moderators, I won't work on help files until new version is released

If you would make your translation availible for download, I would be very grateful.

I am working on an OJS installation for the Universidad de León and I'm in need of a translation for ES_ES (and not ES_AR).

While my Spanish is not great, my wife is bi-lingual and uses software in English and Spanish with not trouble, so she would be sure to provide suggested changes, if necessary.

Spanish translation

Thanks to Sergio Ruiz, the Spanish (Spain) translation has been added to OJS. It will be included with future releases, and can be added to OJS 2.0.2 as follows:

  • Download the Spanish locale from
  • Untar the archive into your OJS root directory
  • Add the locale to locales/registry.xml by adding the following line below the English locale:

    Code: Select all

    <locale key="es_ES" name="Español (España)"/>
  • Log into the system as Site Administrator and go to the languages tab
  • Install the language following the directions there.

You may need to enable the es_ES locale for each journal; do this by going to "Hosted Journals" from the Site Administrator's User Home and pressing the Edit link for each journal and following the directions there.
