Hi folks, I want to help with the multilingual support of silverstripe, since this is very important to me. I can do a lot of work with _t() functions and also finish the spanish translation. Now to the problems.


<% _t('DRAFTS','Drafts') %>
<% _t('SENT','Sent Items') %>
<% _t('MAILLIST','Mailing List') %>

do not care about language files. I'm using es_ES locale, and this strings are not translated at all, and they are present in the language file. Even changing them in the en_US.php results in no change. The only way I can change them is changing them inside the .ss template. Why? I have the same problem with some strings in the svn version of the blog module.

I'm trying to complete the multilingual support adding _t() functions, and adding the new translation array to en_US and es_ES.php, but this doesn't let me go further. This things unmotivate me. PLEASE HELP.

Here are the language translations from es_ES.php and en_US.php inside cms/lang

$lang['es_ES']['']['DRAFTS'] = 'Borradores';
$lang['es_ES']['']['MAILLIST'] = 'Lista de correo';
$lang['es_ES']['']['SENT'] = 'Elementos enviados';

$lang['en_US']['']['DRAFTS'] = 'Drafts';
$lang['en_US']['']['SENT'] = 'Sent Items';
$lang['en_US']['']['MAILLIST'] = 'Mailing List';

If you modify any of them, nothing happens even after a ?flush=1.

SSViewer (the template parser) and the textcollector have different ideas on which namespace the entities should be found - an inconsistency in i18n core. i've created a ticket:

this took me nearly two hours to debug, phew... sorry i can't help more right now, its a pretty tricky thing to fix.
