    Default Translation Tool and Arabic

    I'm in the process of creating an Arabic version of open realty. After looking at the 1500 line file, I decided that it would be too unwieldy to translate it all manually. So I wrote a PHP script that uses google translater to basically translate all the property files. It can be used as a guideline.

    The friend I did the Arabic version for told me that the short words or phrases translated fine, but the longer sentences were 'efed up'.

    If you want to get a head start on translating to other languages, you can find the translation tool I used at http://github.com/oletraveler/openre...ranslation.php

    If you would like the Arabic language files, you can find them around here: http://github.com/oletraveler/openre...e/language/ar/

    The file you mention in fact has more than 1600 lines. It is already partially translated (about 70%) to Arabic as you can see at: http://code.google.com/p/langfiles4o...iginal.inc.php

    But there are more language files (at least 7 files). The install language file is 100% translated.

    I don't see other good way to translate without doing it manually and I don't recomend the use of any translation tool (but it may be helpful during the manual translation).

    Browse our language repository at: http://code.google.com/p/langfiles4or/source/browse/ and if you wish to help us to finish the Arabic translation, you will be very welcome.
    As a start, please read: http://support.open-realty.org/showthread.php?22328 - as you may see (http://code.google.com/p/langfiles4or/people/list), we have 2 Forum Members assigned to the Arabic translation and you could help them.

    Thanks for pointing me to the Arabic version. I will forward the files on to my friend whom I am doing the Arabic version for and I will submit any translations he has that have not already been translated.

    As for the tool, I would agree you wouldn't want to use the tool and then not manually go through all the translations, but I think that it is a good head start instead of having to have the translater write out everything for each translation.

    Where can I find informatio about the 7 other files that need translating?

    As I said above, please browse our language repository at: http://code.google.com/p/langfiles4or/source/browse/

    At ../include/language/en/versions/ there are 5 files
    At ../include/language/en/custom/ there is 1 file
    At ../install/lang/en/ there is 1 file

    If you wish to help UMP...
    At ../addons/multilingual/language/en/ there is 1 file
    At ../template/en/ there are 8 files

    If you don't wish to be part of the translation team, the Forum for you to submit language files is:
    http://support.open-realty.org/forum...-File-Releases
