Localisation of the new "default" (aka kubrick) theme? (4 posts)

    Hello all!

    I'm very new to all of this (server-side techniques, WordPress etc), but must say that working with and on WordPress is quite easy and thus wonderful.

    Since WordPress 1.5, we got the evenly great theme "kubrick" implemented as default, and I immedialtely adopted to it, needing only minor tweaks to get it to look as I want it to. (added a horizontal menu, made the banner smaller etc.)

    Even without any knowledge of PHP, I get what I want quite quickly.

    So far for the flattering... ;)

    My questions are about localisation. I installed the de.mo and most of the stuff is now displayed in german.

    But it seems as if there is quite some text that don't get a german aquivalent, they even seem to be hardcoded. Is that so, or is the de.mo localisation-file incomplete?

    The other question is: Could WordPress become multilingual? Like, deliver WordPress in a language depending on the user's settings? (This could be just for the general stuff, like navigation etc., but I could imagine that it could become sensible to filter out articles, too...

    Thanks very much already for any kind response, and again, KUDOS to the development-team(s)!

    the de.mo hasn't been updated in a while. I will do so when I come around to it (maybe this weekend) on http://www.ihad.de/wordpress and the wiki of course.

    Hey, thanks for replying so fast!

    Other question: I began to work on my own de.mo yesterday, using "LocFactory Editor" (well, yes, I use OS X... http://www.locfactory.com/ ), but I'm not quite sure wether I'll be able to, er, "compile" the file to become a valid de.mo file... The howto about translating/generating .pot to .mo was a bit too geeky for my old and used grey matter...

    If anybody has some hints and the like about this (maybe even OS X related?), thanks in advance!

    (Sidenote: Is there, could there be an online service to which one can upload his .pot file, and the server there delivers a .mo-file on the fly? I'll have to talk to my sysop, maybe he would like somesuch...)
