I have problem with translating the Forum module into Czech language. I used the to translate allmost all entities. I download the file with translation and copy it into lang folder of Forum module in my Silverstripe instalation. In my mysite/_config.php I add this

Object::add_extension('SiteTree', 'Translatable');

After this I refresh my site, some entities is now translated, but some are still in english even if they are in the translation file. I try this with some other translations, but same entities still stay in english.
Doing I something wrong?

Please Can anyone help me with this?

Many thanks.
Marek Fronc.

The forum does have some untranslated strings (quite a few which have been fixed in trunk) so there may be segments that cannot be translated. Any strings in particular you're having trouble with?

For Example in template there is

<% _t('CURRENTLYON','Currently Online:') %>

in my translation file is entity CURRENTLYON translated as you can see below

$lang['cs_CZ']['']['CURRENTLYON'] = 'Právě připojeni:';

but still on website I see string "Currently Online:"

But more weird is in if it is used in ForumHolder page only Posts is translated but if I go into some thread wihich I think is used template Posts and Topics are translated, but not the members

<p class="forumStats">$TotalPosts <strong><% _t('POSTS','Posts') %></strong> <% _t('IN','in') %> $TotalTopics <strong><% _t('TOPICS','Topics') %></strong> <% _t('BY','by') %> $TotalAuthors <strong><% _t('MEMBERS','members') %></strong></p>

I look to the code of translation file and not realy understand why some entities have the .ss on the end and some are only with name of template. Is there some rule about this?

Thanks for replies.
