    Translating a contact form Link to this post


    im really enjoying working with translating in SS.
    i have a site with four languages and i have two types of custome form (1) member registartion form (2) contact form.
    how can i be able to translate the form fields into my four languages.

    here is a part of my form code which i need translated

        new TextField ('Name', 'Name *'),
        new TextField('Vorname','Vorname *'),
        new TextareaField('Adresse','Adresse *'),
        new TextField('PLZ','PLZ'),
        new TextField('Ort','Ort *'),
        new EmailField('Email','E-mail *'),

    You should use the _t() function to define the strings to replace - http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=i18n#the_t_function

    _t('A.ENTITY','String that is used in A and B');

    Then run the TextCollector to generate the lang files, This will generate a en_US.php file in your mysite/lang folder which you can copy / paste for other languages - http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=i18n#collecting_text
