Global Translation Rules

Last modified by Thomas Mortagne on 2014/12/22 10:15

Here you can find all rules on translations for all applications and languages.

Rules pages

The first rule is about where to put the rules emoticon_smile As mentioned above this page is about rules that apply on everything, if you have rules that make sense only for a specific application you will find the proper page on the <Application Name>.TranslationRules page. The other context is the language, you will find this one on the page named <Application Name>.TranslationRules_<Language Code>.

To make it more clear, here are some examples:

Language Code

The language code is the standard format used in JAVA which means <Language Code>[_<COUNTRY CODE>].

For example for fr locale we use fr.png with name fr.png.

Note that most of the time there is no official language flag so we always have to choose a country flag and sometime it's obviously not easy. What we say is that the variant language associated to a simple language code is the one we use as default variant. For example here fr is French from France (fr_FR) and if we want a Belgim variant then we can create a fr_BE language code.

Language Flags

You can modify or add a languages flags on the Locale Flags page

Language Names

You can modify or add language pretty names on the Locale Names page.
