Language packs: can you share yours?

At DNN-Connect.org we have spend effort to collect and create language packs for various modules. And it is slowly comming into shape.

As of this moment, there are language packs in different languages:

Català (Català), Deutsch (Deutschland), Español (España, Alfabetización Internacional), Français (France), Français (Belgique), Français (Canada), Français (Suisse), Français (Luxembourg), Français (Principauté De Monaco), Gaeilge (Éire), Nederlands (Nederland), Nederlands (België), Português (Brasil), Português (Portugal), Svenska (Sverige), Türkçe (Türkiye), Русский (Россия), Українська (Україна);

 for a large number of modules in different versions:

2Sexy Content, Active Forums, Active Forums What's New, Announcements, Blog, DDR Menu, Device Preview Management, Digital Asset Management, DNN Core, DNN_ActiveDirectoryAuthentication, DNN_TwitterFeed, DNNCentric AJAX FAQ, Documents, DotNetNuke Client Capability Provider, DotNetNuke Facebook Authentication Project, DotNetNuke Google Authentication Project, DotNetNuke Live Authentication Project, DotNetNuke Twitter Authentication Project, EasyDNNMailChimp, EasyDNNnews, EasyDNNnews Calendar, EasyDNNnews Categories Menu, EasyDNNnews Search, EasyDNNnews TagCloud, EasyDNNnews Widgets, Engage: Booking, Engage: Events, Events, FAQs, Feedback, Form and List, Forum, Gallery, HTML, Html Editor Management, IFrame, Journal, Links, Live Slider, Media, Member Directory, Message Center, NB_Store_BackOffice, News Articles, News Articles Archives, News Articles Comments, News Articles Latest, News Articles Search, News Feeds (RSS), OpenUrlRewriter, Opt In - Advanced Email, Opt In - Opt In Email, Opt In - Previous Newsletters, Opt In - Simple Opt In, RadEditor Manager, Razor Host, Reports, Repository, Site Redirection Management, Social Groups, Store Account, Store Admin, Store Catalog, Store Menu, Store Mini Cart, Survey, Taxonomy Manager, Url Management, UsersOnline, Ventrian Gallery, Ventrian Gallery Latest, Ventrian Gallery Search, Ventrian Gallery Tag Cloud, Wiki, XML/XSL.

This is an extensive list, but there are more common modules on the market. And we do not have a language pack for every language for every module listed above, so there is room for expansion.

A central hub for translation and distribution

Our objective is to make translation easier and the management of the total process much easier.

The language packs are not only stored for download as such, but we manage all language packs and translations with the Language Pack Manager module that we have developed over the years. Not only can we make the language packs available for download, the module enables complete management of all different languages for all different modules for all different versions, maintain consistency, enable translation in steps, show translation progress, enable some users to be responsible for certain languages, automatic translation, translation without module installation, create language install packs and more, much more.

Interested to see which language packs are already available? Go to the Community/Translation section on DNN-Connect.org and have a look.

We want more language packs, modules and versions

There is room for more. Please share you module translation to others. It does not matter if it is 10%, 80%, 99% or 100% done. Any part that is translated will help others..The LPManager module enables a clever way of having multiple people doing tasks, but before we make the process more open, I have volunteered to merge any language packs submitted into the central system. And there are several ways I can do that.

In the order of preference, do one of the following:

  1. Mail me (ep.tamminga@hotmail.nl) a module install pack with a seperate language install pack
  2. Mail me a module install pack and a zip of all translated .resx files for that module
  3. Mail me a language install pack and tell me for which module this pack is
  4. Mail me a zip of all translated .resx files and tell me for which module this translation is

The module install pack is useful for management of all parts of the translation, the module is not installed as a running module, but parsed as the basis for a complete versioned translation.

Latest news (14 nov 2016)

As of today, we have in total 174 language packs available for various modules, versions and languages. Please mail me yours, so we can increase this number!
