DMS 2 translations

Recommended Posts

PeterBuilt

Hi,

 

I'm trying to figure out the best way to handle translations of WP strings in DMS 2 such as "Read more" buttons, "Posted by", "Comments" et cetera...

 

I know of language files and PoEDIT, but not where to get these for DMS 2.

 

Will using language specific .po and .mo files affect our work with the Polylang plugin in DMS 2?

 

Should we include a .po/.mo file for each language we use with Polylang?

 

Also; what's the proper way to work with a child theme for DMS 2?

 

Can we use the PageLines Customize Plugin for any of this?

 

 

Is this asking too much? :-)

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

It is likely that the .dms pot needs updating. Translations are not my forte so I will speak to one of our developers and see if this is the case.

Hi Danny,

 

Thank you for your reply, but what about this:

 

Should we include a .po/.mo file for each language we use with Polylang?

 

Also; what's the proper way to work with a child theme for DMS 2?

 

Can we use the PageLines Customize Plugin for any of this?

 

thanks!

I don't personally use any language plugin, as I have never had a need to do so, but it is my understanding that if you want a multi-lingual site,  you need a .po file for each language you want to use.

 

Not sure what you mean by this statement "Also; what's the proper way to work with a child theme for DMS 2?"

 

You install the child theme, activate it and proceed with your design, layout, configuration as normal. You're free to use my child theme here - http://dannyholt.github.io/skeleton

 

The PageLines Customize plugin hasn't supported a language folder since the launch of DMS. So you need to use a child theme.

Hi Danny,

 

Thank you for your reply - I have downloaded your child theme and will give it a go.

      ¿Where can  I translate the english items "Orders", "Adress", "Payment Methods". "Edit Account" and "Sing Out"of the my account page of the plugin Quickshop? In the po file they are not.
      I think that it have relation with this error: "Your theme version of my-account.php template', '2.6', 'the latest version, which supports multiple account pages and navigation, from WC 2.6.0".

      I use the Frame Work Pagelines´s Child theme for platform 5.

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Are there any instructions for this? Seems like the plugin use standard .mo/.po for translation, but how do I prevent my language file from being overwritten with updates?
      Support for different number and currency formats in sections is also missing. For me this is an issue with Boxes. I can't use the counter with the current format (thousands separator), it looks really odd in Norwegian (and a lot of other languages).

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.
