Hey there,

would like to ask if someone could help me out with this one.
I just found out how to use the t-function, though I don't get it working.

This is how my _config.php looks like

Translatable::set_default_locale('de_DE');
i18n::set_locale('de_DE');
i18n::set_locale('en_GB');
i18n::set_locale('it_IT');
i18n::set_locale('fr_FR');
Translatable::set_allowed_locales(array(
'de_DE',
'en_GB',
'it_IT',
'fr_FR'
)
);
SiteTree::add_extension('Translatable');
SiteConfig::add_extension('Translatable');

My header has the $ContentLocale

<html lang="$ContentLocale" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

This is the function in my template file HomePage.ss

<p><% _t('HomePage.ss.LEISTUNGSPROFIL','LEISTUNGSPROFIL') %></p>

This is the content of my Page.php

<?php
class Page extends SiteTree {

   private static $db = array(
      'SideBar'=>'HTMLText',
   );
   public function getCMSFields() {
   $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
   $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Main',new HTMLEditorField('SideBar','Sidebar Inhalt'));
   return $fields;
   }

   private static $has_one = array(
   );

}
class Page_Controller extends ContentController {

   /**
    * An array of actions that can be accessed via a request. Each array element should be an action name, and the
    * permissions or conditions required to allow the user to access it.
    *
    * <code>
    * array (
    * 'action', // anyone can access this action
    * 'action' => true, // same as above
    * 'action' => 'ADMIN', // you must have ADMIN permissions to access this action
    * 'action' => '->checkAction' // you can only access this action if $this->checkAction() returns true
    * );
    * </code>
    *
    * @var array
    */
   private static $allowed_actions = array (
   );

   public function init() {
      parent::init();
         if($this->dataRecord->hasExtension('Translatable')) {
         i18n::set_locale($this->dataRecord->Locale);
      }
      }
}

And lastly I created a "lang" folder in "mysite" folder which consists of 3 files:

en_GB.php
fr_FR.php
it_IT.php

<?php

$lang['en_GB']['HomePage.ss']['LEISTUNGSPROFIL'] = 'LEISTUNGSPROFIL English';

So, what am I doing wrong? Is everything it it's right place? Does the lang folder belong into mysite?
Would be awesome if someone could help me out.

You can check out the non working translation on the HomePage of greenrhythm.org

Best regards,

Richard

It can be a bit tricky... Ingos ss book covers it... but this I think does a very good job (more info in the comments too)

It is tricky .... I am a damn designer not a coder :)
Thx for the link though, at least my config is corrected now and I found a way to translate static links.

Also updated my page.php etc., I'm pretty sure everything is set up correctly.
I don't get it ...

In templates you should use
<%t NAMESPACE.MYTRANSLATEDSTRING "My Translated String" %>

Then in your project you can have a file under
mysite/lang/en.yml
mysite/lang/de.yml

etc or in yourmodule/lang/en.yml

The _t function has the same parameters but needs to be called in PHP.

In en.yml you would have something like
en:
NAMESPACE:
MYTRANSLATEDSTRING: My Translated String

Similarly for German:
de:
NAMESPACE:
MYTRANSLATEDSTRING: Meine Uebersetzte Zeichenkette
