Status as of April 26, 2002 and il8n Internationalization instruction! and Importing MARC example.

I have recieved a lot of email from phpmylibrary-users. Thank you for your interest in phpmylibrary, I hope I would be able to further enhance the software to fully support your libraries or information centers.

April 26, 2002 - I am currently working on cataloging, circulation and transaction module. I hope this would be released very soon. Now, I want to note that phpmylibrary-1.0.4a is internationalization compatible. Please do copy the polerio/lang/eng/global.php to a directory of your choice, like polerio/lang/ru/global.php, as russian langauge.

After you made a directory, then edit the global.php under that language directory and modify all the equivalent values. Changes in this values would reflect in the program. You don't have to make the hard-editing to change the language.

In addition, please do edit the polerio/config/conf.php and edit the language settings. Then encode your created language, if you made a russian language in a folder like polerio/lang/ru/global.php then encode the ru as the langauge value.

Now, I would like to make some favor, if you could give me a copy of your language created so that it will be available to another user around the world. Don't worry, you're automatically included in phpmylibrary credits section.

I made this article to remind you that you can use a language of your choice in phpmylibrary software. My only favor is please do make a copy and submit it to me so that I can add it in phpmylibrary download file.
