This is WackoWiki, and there are some good news for you:

  1. WackoWiki supports as many language schemes as you dare to write to.

WackoWiki language files are separated from code and stored in a special folder, so called "lang". If you untar/unzip installation pack, you will surely find one. There, in that very folder, you`ll find wacko.en.php, wacko.ru.php & some more files for other languages (one at the writing time).

  • lang/lang.en.php
  • lang/wacko.en.php

If you want to create your own language scheme, perhaps for Finnish or Esperanto or maybe even Klingon (who bother?), you will need to perform next two simple actions:

  1. Copy one of the existing schemes (that one you most familiar with) to a new file (wacko.fi.php for Finnish, for ex.)
  2. Open your newly created file and edit it, changing values after "=>" into something meaningful in target languages. (oh, it would be a time sink)
  3. Adapt the lang.xy.php (lang.fi.php for Finnish, for ex.) for you language scheme

When finished stage 2, your language scheme is complete & it will automatically appear in your user settings as a choice for language.

If you want to use your language scheme as default in your Wacko installation, simple change the language in your configuration

'language' => 'fi',

Note that if you want to have installer of WackoWiki works with your language, you also need to translate:

  • setup/lang/inserts.en.php
  • setup/lang/installer.en.php

Admin panel

  • admin/ap.en.php

If you are done creating scheme for language not yet listed on this page, it would be great & honorous to send us your language file (wacko.fi.php according to upgoing example) — so we could add one more language into installation pack and make WackoWiki one step more international.

The easiest way to create a new language scheme is to copy an existing (see Repository) one and edit it.
