First a great THANK YOU to all translators of the
Simplify Your Web extensions who helped over the last few years. I really appreciate it.
You too, request and become a translator to help the community of users and receive free pro licenses as a thank you for your work.
To help with translations, you need to create an account at Transifex.
Once registered, go to the folder of the extension(s) you wish to translate. In the languages page, you should see a button in the upper right corner 'Request language'. Click it. Once approved, you will be able to start translating.
Please follow those simple rules when translating extensions:
- do not translate extension names (for instance
Latest News Enhanced). It is important for users to know the original name for further reference in the documentation, demonstration and Simplify Your Web websites,
- keep upper casing identical as much as possible (unless different in your language),
- keep HTML tag formatting identical,
%sitems in the translated strings. They are replaced with data when translated,
- avoid quotes
"and preferably use single quotes
Note Language requests are granted on the basis that the language needs to exist for Joomla as an official language (a language installable from the Joomla administration console).
For instance, fr-FR or fr-CA will be accepted, but not fr.
