Need help with arabic package

Post by anastasia0181 » Sat Mar 01, 2014 4:53 am

Salamo alikom,
I am supposed to create an Arabic site so installed a joomla 2.5 site and K2 component, I added few items then I installed the Arabic package and assign Arabic to front site language, however some items were translated and some were not like the comments form under each k2 item.

Is the a solution to fix this?

Thank you in advance.

The Arabic language pack only contains the language strings + Arabic translation for the Joomla core language strings.
You'll need to install an Arabic language pack for K2.
Check the developers website if it's available.

If it's not available:
copy the K2 language files from the /languages/en-GB/ folder to your Arabic language folder,
rename the copied file so that the name fits with the other translation files,
and change the English text in Arabic translations.
And please consider sharing your Arabic K2 translation with the K2 developer so that other people can benefit from it.

@pe7er!
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.
thank you.
