Translating Website rules

Hi all

I'm wondering what's best practice for translating Website rules.
I would have expected to find them as PO files on Launchpad...but didn't.
So I presume I translate the appropriate rules_*.txt file having copied it to .../TEXT_CUSTOM/FR?

Now I know the rules are customisable, and mandatory acceptance can be turned off, but given the wad of text to translate it's a pity not to make it available to the community somehow or another.

Hi Gary,

What you can do if you like, is to export an addon from your site and then upload an addon here. I haven't tried this in a while myself, but I believe you can do it direct from the language tools. Theoretically it should include all the language files, and per-language overrides like this.
If not, you can try exporting an addon direct from the addon management tools and select the files manually.
The tar files we use for addons are basically just normal tar files, so you can save files into them too using something such as 7-zip.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
