Sorry, if you get duplicate copies of this message.
KADI Gergo <gergo@...> suggested that SquirrelMail should have
translated language names in Options -> Display prefs.
I have thought about it a little bit and did it in a different way. If we
do it proposed way - we'll have to store all translatable language names
in some place (po/independent_strings.txt) and functions/i18n.php
$languages can't be used, because storing there would work only when php
has gettext functions.
Also it would be nice to see language names in their native version
instead of translation to current locale.
So patch is in SM cvs HEAD. If you want to test it - set
$show_alternative_names variable in config/config_local.php
Please note that if you use Internet Explorer - you might trigger
alternative language support download and Windows 9x usually asks to
reboot after installing them.
If you are not guinea pig :), here is how I see these translations
According to talks on IRC
"Language name in English (native language name)" looks better that
"Language name in English / native language name". But SM has Norwegian
and Portuguese translations that already use ().
I have translated only names that I know and names found in
locale/*/LC_MESSAGES/squirrelmail.po. If I've translated them incorrectly
- fix me. If I haven't translated your language name - send me your
language name with 8bit symbols written as html codes or just send it to
me in encoding that is supported by SM 1.4.2.
I should write patches for conf.pl and administrator plugin in one week.
Unless somebody want to help me by writing patches that create
1. Organization Preferences
10. Show alternative language names
11. List of available language names (unimplemented yet)
