First things first.  ;)

1. You need amharic fonts http://am.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia: ... he_font%3F This is only for pdf creation. Use Arial and an Amharic keyboard. CSS to Arial.
2. You need to have an amharic language pack loaded.
As I am not aware of this language availability for Joomla!, I guess you will have to create the files yourself on the model of english.php, english.xml and english.ignore.php.
3. The charset has to be utf-8 and the php files saved as utf8
4. The original english language files have also to be reencoded utf8 (and charset changed to utf8)
5. The database has to be full utf8 (see stickies on top of this board)

6. Then, you may use joomfish indeed and translate your contents from one language to the other.

PS: if you create the amharic language file, we all would appreciate you make it available to all Joomla users.
Please contact me if you volunteer.

Let me explain my quastion this way
I want to use Ethiopian language (Ge'ez script) on my site to use it on the front end....I have added joom!Fish to my components but could not find any Ethiopian language on joomla site ....on the list of Translations for Joomla .
Can you please give me a clue?
Note: I read that recently a Unicode standard for Ethiopic languages has developed check the below link
http://www.wazu.jp/gallery/Fonts_Ethiopic.html

My question is which joomla Multi-lingual Content do you recommend me and how can I install the Ge'ez script (Ethiopic fonts) to use on the front end of my site?

Thank you again

I have merged the 2 topics

Arial can be used on an Amharic site as one can see here:
http://www.google.com/intl/am/

One has to use the right keyboard.
Follow instructions above to make Amharic language files.


The use of a unicode (Geez) or any other font is only absolutely necessary for pdf production.

I now move this to Translation Forum where 1.0.x and 1.5 Amharic language translation will better fit

Hi,
This is my first post on Joomla! forum. I need some help. I installed Joomla! 1.5 on a new website. My plan is to use both Amharic & English fonts on the website.
Here are my questions;

1, Does the language files must be translated to Amharic?

2,What exactly is the benefit of the translation of the language files to Amharic? ...

3, Without translation the language files to Amharic is there any disadvantage if I use Joomla 1.5 with Amharic & English fonts?

Thanx!!!

OK. Some replies.
Note concerning font usage:
Change all the site CSS in template_css.css to use Arial as first choice when a font is defined.
ARIAL contains the ge'ez glyphs
Quote:
font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;


1. Joomla 1.0.13 +

Create an Amharic language pack lets your users get front-end strings in Amharic.

Copy english.php change name to amharic.php
Copy english.ignore.php change name to amharic.ignore.php
Copy english.xml change name to amharic.xml

A. Edit php files, use Amharic keyboard with utf 8 aware editor (Babelpad on Windows, BBEdit on Macintosh)

Change strings:
example (parts in red have to be translated):
// Site page note found
define( '_404', 'We\'re sorry but the page you requested could not be found.' );
define( '_404_RTS', 'Return to site' );
[etc.]
// common
DEFINE('_LANGUAGE','en'); // change here to am
[etc.]
/** templates/*.php */
DEFINE('_ISO','charset=iso-8859-1');// change here to UTF-8
[etc.]

Save the files as UTF8 NO BOM encoding.
[Back-slashes have to be added before apostrophes as an escape]
[The amharic.ignore.php contains terms which will be ignored by search]

B. Edit amharic.xml
from
Quote:


English
1.0.0
2004-09-20
Joomla! Project
admin@joomla.org

english.php
english.ignore.php



to
Quote:


Amharic
1.0.0
2004-09-20
Joomla! Project
admin@joomla.org

amharic.php
amharic.ignore.php



Save with the iso-8559-1 encoding.

Zip the 3 files together. The package is ready.
Refer to post above to create a UTF8 site, as well as here: http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic,174443.0.html
Quote:
DEFINE('_ISO','charset=iso-8859-1');// change here to UTF-8
has to be changed for the english.php file


Use your Amharic keyboard to change in back-end menus, titles, contents to Amharic.


2. Joomla 1.5

1. 5 is full utf8
Same solution for the fonts used in CSS.
One is NOT forced to use Amharic language files and still may enter Amharic strings in Articles, etc..
Amharic language packs lets users switch on the fly languages in admin and site. INterface and common strings.
This is not an automatic translation of the articles themselves or of the titles, menus, etc. of the data, but all interface.

Language files are separate .ini files in 3 groups:
Installation
Site
Admin

The easiest solution here is to install last nightly build
http://dev.joomla.org/content/view/17/60/#nightly

and when sure it is working OK, install this component
http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomla_1_5_tr1/frs/

It is then easy to create a new Amharic package (takes time to translate though and it is suggested to do that as a group)
Name of package should be:
am-ET

Locale should be:
am_ET.utf8, am_ET.UTF-8, am_ET, amh_ET, am, amh, amharic, ethiopic


If, for any reason, some ini or xml  language files are edited manually with a test editor, they have to be saved with the encoding UTF8 NO BOM.

We would be glad to add to the new Joomla 1.5 the Amharic language packs.
In case some of you volunteer, please contact me by pm.

As per your advice,

in joomla 1.5 is it necessary to have language pack to have an Amharic front end string.
coz in my page  ( http://selfidemocracy.org) here the fonts do not show up,have a look to the news menu (the menu itself is in both amharic and english) and secondly the flsh news content.

as always your support is greatly apprciated.

tanx!!!

Hi infograf768, I am interested in translating Joomla! for Amharic. I am very adept in both Amharic and English. Despite my infancy on this forum, I have also been using Joomla! for a few years now and understand it very well.

I do have some of the same concerns voiced above regarding the correct display of Amharic content on various terminals with varying configurations. Is it possible to package a translation for Amharic using .ini files to assure correct display on terminals despite local configuration. One of the Arabic translations I looked into has in fact used such a way, and I am wondering if that is a viable option for Amharic.

Your guidance will be very much appreciated in helping make Joomla! available to 80+ million additional potential users!

Hello All,

New year wishes!

If you don't mind, please help me to include Amharic RSS news feeds from another website (say http://waltainfo.com) in to my website http://ethio2k.com

Please visit the page http://ethio2k.com/portal/index.php/com ... temid,127/ and you will see how odd it is when compared to original http://www.waltainfo.com/index.php?opti ... &Itemid=44

I dont need to make whole site into Amharic as I am not an Ethiopian and I dont know to read Amharic. Anyhow I need only one RSS news page in Amharic taken from another site and please advice me how this is possible.

Thanks n regards,

Sanmathyraj

Looking at the original code, I see
Code:
<span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: &#39;Visual Geez Unicode&#39;">


The feed is produced with JS and it is not normally formatted. A feedreader can read it not Joomla!

Your site has to be utf8.

@tylon

there are a few resources on the way to create a 1.0.15 site as utf8 but I would not advise you to.
It is much easier to start with Joomla 1.5.
FYI, 1.0.x support will stop in July this year.

infograf768, thanks for your followup.

As per your recommendation, I've setup my site using Joomla 1.5. It seems to work fine on firefox 3 and 2 but not in IE8( Win XP). The page encoding setting of IE8 is set to utf8.No clue why the problem happens.

Any help?

I have no issue with your pack here on a joomla 1.0.15 utf8 aware installation.
See how to make Joomla 1.0.x behave ok in utf8 here
viewtopic.php?f=123&t=174443

For your error, search these forums for the string
"Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent"
Usually, this happens because one of the php files you modified has been saved with an empty line at the beginning or the end of the file.
see peculiarly configuration.php as you Amharic.php file looks fine here.

There are some issues between IE8 and some layouts.
Could you precise what exactly are your problems?
Screenshot, link to site?

My site is still offline,but please have a look at the following sites as an example.

http://www.ethiopianreporter.com & http://www.amharicnews.com/newzena/

IE8 correctly renders the fonts on the first site. But not on the 2nd one( I've attached the screenshot FYI).

I believe my problem is the same as the second one.

Let me know if this helps you understand my problem.

Difficult to judge.
These 2 sites are joomla 1.0.x site.
One is encoded utf8 and the one displayed is iso-8559-1
This is indeed not a layout issue.

do you have an Amharic keyboard with utf 8 aware editor. We are also trying to recruit Amharic translators to have Joomla in Amharic. Are you a possible volunteer?

Thanks
