Is the horizontal "main menu" (Site, Forums, Personal Zone etc) not part of the translation?

I looked at the 100%-translation NL, but it's still default - in Launchpad I didn't find the strings either.

Hi,

Once ocPortal is installed these labels become data, so you'd need to edit the data. In this case, it can be done by editing the zones from the Structure section of the Admin Zone.

But his affects all languages or not?

Other parts like CEDI or "Rules" are also not language-dependent - can this be achieved with Comcode (lang-dependend linking from the menu or s.th. like that)?

If you're running multiple languages at once then you can translate items by using the translate content functionality. There's an option in the footer for translating content on the page, and there's a section in the Admin Zone.

Thanks, but in the footer-translation doesn't contain the mainmenu. I found it under: /adminzone/index.php?page=admin_lang

I select the language and use the search-function, get a text-area, change the value for "collaboration" and then get an error "You did not fill in all fields on the form correctly" and "A form field was left blank." - but there's only one... could be the "Language file" (although it get's disabled when using search)?

Hi,

This is indeed a bug which we'll fix, but actually you should be under the 'Translate website content' icon, rather than the 'Language' icon. Sorry, I was unclear.

Sorry, I still don't get it. Everytime I click on "Translate website content" in the footer it opens a form, but with different Attr/Value-Fields, Attr is always a number, Value changes depending on the site - so far so good. But in the form the main-menu-items are not mentioned, e.g. on the Page "Collaboration Zone" (collaboration/index.php?page=start&keep_cache=0&special_pag
e_type=lang_content) there is nothing to translate (and the page has no HEAD)

Strangely enough, I have a second server with 4.3.2. running but there the Option "Translate website content" is missing completely! Any idea why?

I meant the icon under the Style section of the Admin Zone with the same name.

Maybe your other site only has one language installed.

Yes, you're right, no further languages were installed.

OK - found the icon, found the entry, got the same error. But my question is answered, thanks!

Was it definitely the same error, underneath that specific icon? I tested making a content translation earlier and it seemed to work okay.

Sry, wrong function (though same icon).

Ok, I try to translate "collaboration zone" - Admin/Style/Translate website content

Active Site-Lang: EN
Translate website content
select "german"

I get five times the fields for translation "Welcome to the Collaboration Zone" - not one for translating "Collaboration Zone"

Active Site-Lang: DE
Translate website content (german equivalent)
select "german"

No mention of Collaboration Zone, only "ocp_country", "ocp_points_used" etc (totally different things than on the EN-page)

Active Site-Lang: DE
Translate website content (german equivalent)
select "english"

Five occurences of "Admin Zone" - changed all, changed to EN, still it's unchanged in Main-Menu

Sorry - beats me!

Hi,

Could you try just editing the collaboration zone when German is on, and translating it whilst you edit? In theory that should work too, and it might be that it's not showing because from the system's perspective it's already been translated via such a prior edit.

sry, currently I have no access to this server - I'll try it as soon as possible.

But it seems to be a caching issue - it (kind of) worked on an english version, I tried to change "Forums" but it changed not the name of the "global zones" (which I called "main menu"), but those in the sub-menu below the global zones.

Sry, if I perhaps used the wrong terms - I wanted to rename the global zones.

Sorry this is such a drawn-out-process. This is meant to work smoothly, but in reality we've only relatively recently introduced the multi-language-content-translation support and not many people have used it so far.

Please try emptying the block cache. Admin Zone > Tools section > Cleanup Tools -> Block cache checkbox.

In the next version editing zones will automatically empty the block cache for the side_stored_menu block which is what is caching here.
