    Question Problems with Installing Dutch Languagepack

    Hello,

    I am new here, and i don't know how its work on a Forum. But i have a question !

    I downloaded the latest version of OSCMAX from this website, i downloaded also the latest dutch languagepack.

    The follow thing I do: 1. I copy the catalog dir to the OSCM catalog
    2. In Admin I make a new Language
    Country : Netherlands
    ID : nl
    Image : Icon.gif
    directory : Dutch
    Sort Order : 1
    : Default

    When i start again in the admin Backend and i choose for the Dutch language I get a blank page in the front- and backend and the site is unreacheble.

    What is going wrong, and who can help me out.

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    Firstly - make sure you post in the right forum otherwise you might get a mixed response to your enquiries! You have put your post in v1.7 which has been out of date for a while now!

    Your problem is more than likely that you are missing the main language file (or it is in the wrong place). Take a look in catalog/admin/includes/languages and catalog/includes/languages you will see that each of the installed languages has three files here:

    Eg. for English you have
    1) English.php
    2) affiliate_english.php
    3) add_ccgvdc_english.php

    So for your dutch language to work you will need a version of these files as well in both places in bold above.

    So ... dutch.php, affiliate_dutch.php and add_ccgvdc_dutch.php.

    Just copy the english ones for the missing files and rename - this should get you started ... you will then need to go in and change the defines so they are in dutch.

    Regards,
    pgmarshall

    If the above does not sound like your issue then I remember fixing a very similar issue with the French Language pack which had an unescaped ' in the language file.

    If any of the words in the language pack have aspotophes (') then they need to be escaped to prevent the php from closing the define to early.

    Eg.

    define('EXAMPLE_TEXT', 'This has an \' in it');

    ANYWHERE_YOU_SEE_CAPITAL_LETTERS_LIKE_THIS means you are missing a language define.

    I suspect that not all of the LANGUAGE_DEFINES are in the Dutch language pack since it is from 2007 and there have been lots of developments since then!

    What you will need to do is search for a missing define eg. BOX_CATALOG_XSELL_PRODUCTS in the admin/includes/languages/english.php file =>

    define('BOX_CATALOG_XSELL_PRODUCTS', 'Cross Sell Products');
    Change this to dutch and add to your admin/includes/languages/dutch.php file.

    define('BOX_CATALOG_XSELL_PRODUCTS', 'Verkopen soortgelijke producten');
    Should fix things up for you ... Please note that not all defines go into the main dutch.php language file ... if you find more of these elsewhere you will need to look in the language files specific to the file.

    We will be shortly releasing a shared workspace on String to aid with the translation of osCmax into other languages. It basically finds all of the language defines required for a full translation and then allows collaborative work to translate them.

    The only dutch language packs for osCmax are the ones in the project section.

    If nothing is changing when you make changes then you either editting the wrong file or have the language set incorrectly.

    You should be able to load the language files from osCommerce but you will just have to translate any extra language fields you find.

    Hello,

    I rewrote/translated allready the most important php's. and it works allmost. A few errors i have, but only on the admin side, not important for the shop self.

    The one and only problem i still have is : How can i turn of the Gift Vouchers & Coupons. I don't need this.

    Best regards,

    Fred

    If you don't need it don't use it. It will not send out anything unless you tell it to.

    If you want to hide the menu then try using the admin permissions tool to only show the menus you want.

    The wiki article on this is here.

    Edit: Once we launch the multi-language tool for osCmax using String - it would be great if you would give your completed translation of osCmax into Dutch back to the community.
