Possible bug in class i18n?

Hi all

I'm trying to translate my forum module and the admin in german. But it did not translate at all...

In my _config.php i changed:


But it still did not work.. After a debug session i changed the method _t in the class i18n and everything works find now.. I changed the line

f(!isset($lang[$locale])) i18n::include_by_locale($locale);


if(!isset($lang[$locale][$class])) i18n::include_by_locale($locale);

and now it includes the language file and the strings are translated. I think the variable $lang[$locale] is always assigned, but not the $lang[$localte][$class].. The variable $class represents the name of the module (e.g. 'Forum')

Is this a possible bug or have i just configured something wrong?

Sounds like a bug. Make a ticket on and one of the core devs will get back to you.
