    l18n - Install PHPUnit without PEAR or CLI Link to this post

    Kia Ora, oh silverstriped ones!

    I just started working on a little page in SS. So far I'm very happy and excited about it, as it's (at least for me) a new way to develop websites.

    The problem is that the website should be in 3 languages. I enabled l18n


    and translated most of my pages. Now there are of course elements, like text in a footer or header, that aren't really content and are hardcoded in the template. As it's stated on here I made variables out of them:

    <a href="http://www.silverstripe.com" title="<% _t('VISIT','Visit www.silverstripe.com') %>">

    Now I should be able to collect all these strings via PHPUnit, right?
    Unfortunately, I work on a hosted server and don't have access to a CLI or the core elements of the file system. There are ways, supposedly, to install PHPUnit without PEAR, but mostly require CLI access.

    So. Is there any way I can get the l18n variable overview without CLI or PEAR? How?

    And, almost as important: Will this give me a way to translate/change texts in different languages in the UI? Or do I have to change the text for each language in the database?

    Any advice would be welcome, really. Have been trying to get it to work for 3 hours now without success.

    It was too much of a hassle with our hoster, so we did the list by hand. It's not that much work, anyway

    Closed, I'd say.

    Hi LePhil,

    I'm having similar issue. (I have 3.0 installed on a hosted server.) Since I don't have a whole lot of hard coded text that need to be translated, I want to manually create the translation file instead of running the text collector.

    Where did you place the translation file and how do you format it?

    I tried creating a file in: mysite/lang/en_US.yml

    Then entered the text like this:

    HelloWorld: 'Hello World!'

    Then in the template, I added the translation like this:

    <%t NameSpace.HelloWorld "Hello World!" %>

    But it's not working. :S What am I doing wrong?? I'd appreciate any help!
