Store Manager Translation Guide
WHAT TO TRANSLATECurrently we need you to translate Store Manager Applications into languages other than English. Additional products will be available later (Plugins, Addons, etc).
TRANSLATOR ROLESThere are two different translator roles;
- The supervisor
- The translator
- Select the project:
- Register a Crowdin account or login if you already have an account
- Choose which language you want to translate, and click on the green "Translate" button
- Start to translate, but we do suggest you finish reading this whole guide on how to translate first!
HOW TO TRANSLATEWhen you are translating you are going to use a service called Crowdin.This is how Crowdin looks like. The red box to the left indicates what words and phrases are waiting to be translated. The green dot is telling you if it has already been translated.
NORMAL TRANSLATIONThis red box indicates the sentence that you are currently translating.
SPECIAL CHARACTERSSometimes when you are translating you are going to encounter words and sentences containing special characters. Please e-mail us at contact [at] magneticone.com with the words so we could tell you if you need to translate them.When translating words and sentences containing these special characters it's important to always make sure that you don't change any of these characters.
IMPORTANT NOTE! Pay attention while translating phrases that contains \n for example:
symbol \n means line break and it shouldn't contain any spaces. Translate those phrases wihtout spaces, they should have the same formatting as original phrases after translation.
Here are some additional characters
Google Translate can convert special symbols with blank, that is wrong:
\n -> \ N%
s -> % s%
d -> % d%
f -> % f
Do not forget to replace spaces between special symbols!
Please use lowercase for special symbols!
UNKNOWN WORDS AND ABBREVIATIONS
Some words might be lacking a correct translation to your language, if this is the case then leave it with an English translation (press the button Skip).
I'M DONE WITH THE TRANSLATION, WHAT NEXT?
Once your translation is approved by supervisor (see above), you will be able to download .lng file. Simply download translated .lng file and place it in main application directory (for example: c:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\MagneticOne Store Manager for Magento\Languages\). Restart Store Manager and switch to the language using Tools -> Application Language. No other actions required to attach a new language.
Important! In case the translation is not applied to the application simply open the .lng file in Notepad, go to File -> Save as and select Type (UTF-8). Once you save the file in the UTF-8 copy it to the main application directory, restart application and check the languages in Tools.
