You can set your default language in the config: http://documentation.coppermine-gallery.net/en/configuration.htm#admin_language_language

If the language won't change, try to clear your cookies.

For some reason the initial Arabic translation thread won't show up in this board ??? But for reference, it's that one: http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,64494.0.html


If you want to continue that language file, please read the translation docs in advance: http://documentation.coppermine-gallery.net/en/translation.htm

You should always use the latest available file version from our svn, which you can download here: http://coppermine.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/coppermine/trunk/cpg1.5.x/lang/arabic.php

ok on other thought ;D
that will take a long time cause more than 1/2 of the file is not translated
should I upload the file before I sleep or wait until I finish it? cause I think am gonna finish it eventually. ;)

Each dev who needs a new language string adds it to the language file. Not all of them are native English speakers, so there might be some translation/context issues.

That's your decision. Each time you upload a new version a dev will add it to our svn repository.

You changed the country code from 'eg' (Egypt) to 'sa' (Saudi Arabia). Are there any language differences in those countries? If so, we might consider to create separate language files.

for the formal Arabic there is no difference
but for slang there are some differences
but because we are using the formal language there is no need for separation :)
