Multiple Languages

Postby mgaiani » Tue Jun 08, 2004 2:56 pm

Has any one looked into implementing OJS in several languages, that is to give the users the chance to select an interface language at the start of the web page and use that language for the rest of the session?

I am concerned about it since my Journal is set to serve in three languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese)

Cheers

Marco

A language toggle is a feature we added to the upcoming OJS 1.1.7 release, although it only changes the static interface text.

French language option

Postby marica » Mon Jun 14, 2004 8:47 pm

Hello,

So how do I "implement" the choice of language, for French if it exists?
Do I upgrade somehow to the new version, and do I have to do this for every new release, is there an auto notification?

Alternatively, how do I make up my own French version - can one or more section be added?

Thanks.

OJS is currently only distributed with two languages: English and Portuguese.

I believe Spanish and French translations are also currently underway for inclusion in a future release of OJS. I would suggest contacting John Willinsky (john.willinsky@ubc.ca) if you would like more information regarding this or if you are interested in assisting with these or other translations.

As far as creating your own translations, see the section on "Language Support" in the docs/EXTRA file included with OJS.
