I appologise for delay in replying. So here is how I would recommend you go about translation in Telugu, for that matter this would be applicable to any language.

Tranlation in any language is very simple. Basically as of Joomla 1.0.5, it has only 3 files that needs to be translated. These files has all the strings that are used in the front and back end of the CMS. These files can be found at //languages/. You will see 3 files with names like

.php
.ignore.php
.xml

Joomla distribution that you can download from developer.joomla.org comes with english language files only. IndicJoomla! distribution comes with english and hindi language files.

So, how do you start. Find english language files, namely

english.php
english.ignore.php
english.xml

I will now start with each files.

english.xml
This file contains metadata about your template. Details like author, version information, creation date and so on. You need to change this  metadata appropriately. Please note that this file also names the ACTUAL language file that holds the string variables. By default it is .php, english.php. I would recommend that do not change this. This way you can name your language file .php.

english.ignore.php

This file contains words that needs to be excluded from a search done on your site. Please edit it accordingly. You can leave it as it is if you like.

english.php

This is the MAIN language file that holds the strings that needs to be translated. THe strings look like

Code: Select all

DEFINE('_CMN_HIDE','Hide');
This particular like defines a string called _CMD_HIDE and sets its value to Hide.
Now to translate this to say Hindi, we will need to make it look like

Code: Select all

DEFINE('_CMN_HIDE','छिपाऍं');
Note that I did not change the string name, but its value...

For those who care, this "thingy" is called name-value pairs. You have a name and its value, and they both make a good pair  ;). To translate, you change the value, NOT the name.

Ands thats about it.

So, for Telugu, you will have three files

telugu.php
telugu.ignore.php
telugu.xml

Once you have these three files ready, let me know and I can create a sub project in IndicJoomla! for your language. And you are all set.
