Different languages for the Forum
« on: October 24, 2006, 08:58:39 AM »

So far, only English was available as Forum language. To reflect the preferences of the visitors of the sub-boards for French, Russian, Chinese, Persian and German support we have added language files for those languages as well.

This does not mean that you're allowed to post in those languages on any board! The Forum language is still English except in the above mentioned, language-specific sub-boards.
The added languages apply to the Forum's controls only (menu entries, buttons etc.), so you can have buttons that don't just say "Reply" in English, but in your language as well. However, your posting has to be in English unless you're within one of the above mentioned sub-boards.

Adding those language files means additional maintenance work already, so please don't make it even harder for moderators by misbehaving and posting in your non-English language on English-only boards. If you still do so, your posting will get moved or deleted.

So here is how to change your language: in the Forum's top navigation, click on Profile, which will send you to your profile overview. At the right section of the screen, click on "Account Related Settings" and then choose your language from the "Preferred Language" dropdown list. Scroll to the bottom of the page, re-enter your current password into the "Current Password" field for security reasons and click on "Change profile".

Do not clutter this announcement thread with individual support requests - don't force us to lock every sticky topic down. Only reply if you have actually questions or remarks to make on the Forum's controls and changing the language preferences.

Just for clarification: this thread does not deal with the languages available for Coppermine. Coppermine comes with support for many different languages, not only English. This thread deals with the support forum language.

Why not ____* language?
Because no one from _____* language has stepped up to volunteer to provide support in _____ language. Keep in mind that the developers don't know every single language that is available. We rely on the global community for international contributions.

*generalized for any language as this question is likely to be asked by people of different languages.

I think that every language can be used in the same time. English is sufficient I think. But it realy great idea to provide some language support.

Hi,

(Sorry for PM)

I am interested in collaborating with the reopening of the forum in Spanish. I postulate myself as volunteer.

Regards.

OK, please stick around and do some support work on the English support board. We'll consider re-opening later.

Your post count still is "one", so you haven't posted except in this thread. Subsequently, you don't appear to be very interessted to contribute here. I will move the unrelated sub-board discussion soon.

There is no Czech sub-board because there is no moderator/supporter around who speaks Czech. Hence, there's no need to allow Czech as board language. There is a sticky thread that explains under which circumstances we will start a language-specific sub-board. Don't clutter this thread (which deals with forum languages) by requesting a new sub-board to be created.

Allowing additional languages means additional maintenance works. That's why the additional languages have been removed - this thread is no longer valid. Locking.

Came from here: 2008-02-12 coppermine webpage down

We (the users) are really grateful to you for the work, but ...
Please restore at least a forum's Russian language.
Russian users can not use the forum as most of the forum's management is missing for them.
Even the "Search" button is missed.
Please, upload Russian language to the forum!

Thanks!

If I go to:
http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?action=profile;sa=account
I can still select "Preferred Language:" - Russian or English.

Maybe then we have to remove "Russian" language Record from the forum's setup?
