Hi all,

Has anyone found a proper way to translate the SiteTree context menu - the popup you get when right-clicking the CMS Sitetree?

It's the TreeContextMenu = {... } bit in the /cms/javascript/CMSMain_left.js. Using the ss.i18n._t( ... ) method is not an option, I hope someone has thought of some workaround besides hacking the code directly?

For anyone who's still interested: it can't be done properly . The menutext is hardcoded into the CMSMain_left.js file (around line 665) - in the indexvalues of the TreeContextMenu array. These indexvalues are then used in the LeftAndMain.js createContextMenu() function to create the contextmenu's innerHTML...

So my suggestion would be:

- replace the readable text indexvalues by something more 'symbolic' in cms/javascript/CMSMain_left.js around line 665

- translate them in cms/javascript/LeftAndMain.js around line 825 using something like translatedMenuItemName = ss.i18n._t('CONTEXTMENU.' + menuItemName, menuItemName);

- provide proper translations in cms/javascript/lang/en_US.js ao

Cheers, Martine
