 Translate this page & Languages
 Posted on: 03/02/08 at 15:27:44

I love this feature! But I see a potential problem. When I translate the page to another
language - the option to translate back to English is translated as well - leaving people
stuck in a different language. Fortunately I figured out it was the top link, but if I had
translated to Chinese or Japanses I would have been stuck.

Is this setting held in a cookie? If I close the browser and open it up again am I back to the
site default language?

This is a pretty minor thing, but can be confusing as I can think of 4 places to set a
language for the site. What takes priority in languages? When a user subscribes they can
pick a default language for themselves, but does that override the admin setting a default
language for the site guests? And do those get overridden by the flags and "translate this
page" items at the top of the site? Do any or all of them stick in a cookie? I'm a bit
confused about it all - although I do like the feature. I just want to understand more about
it and the best way to use each item.

If you mean to the right top translator, it is enabled via the Site Admin for language bar translation and  only triggered when the default site language is English.  

I fully agree that we need a reset button there. This option

We have a more advance translation project modules in beta phase added under the Language-translate section in site admin. This project is to be expanded with the D.A.C which I am working now on integrating to the script. It would provide language specific sections that would being manageable both by the admins and in some cases by the users themself as you can see with the front Welcome message here.

Again, this is just in an early phase and many surprises would soon come! (hopefully mostly good surprises!).

Thanks for the feedback.

Actually I am talking about the top left pulldwn menu - "Translate this page" - which is just
to the left of the country flags, which translate just the menus (AFAIK). Two similar functions,
two different interfaces - right next to each other and both on by default. Confusing, to be
honest.

I think it needs some documentation and/or to be cleaned up - but it sounds like you are
working on it in some aspects, anyway, so I think that is a good thing. I'm sure a better way
will emerge from this in the end.
