Localizations of WackoWiki

Also available in Deutsch, Español, Française, Русский

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

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

Create your own language scheme

WackoWiki language files are separated from code and stored in the lang/ sub-folder. 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/wacko.en.php

If you want to create your own language scheme, perhaps for Finnish or Urdu, you need to do the next three 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 example)
  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 array (wacko.fi.php for Finnish, for example) for you language scheme
'lang_scheme'	=> [
	'name'		=> 'Finnish',
	'code'		=> 'fi',
	'dir'		=> 'ltr',
	'locale'	=> 'fi_FI.UTF-8',

When finished point 3, 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, simply change the language parameter in your configuration via the Admin panel.
Language settings in the system administration

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


  • js/lang/wikiedit.en.js

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 the example above) -- 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.
