[resolved] [Plugin: Shareaholic | email, bookmark, share buttons] Translations of Hovers (4 posts)

    Good afternoon,

    I've installed the shrsb-zh_TW.po language file, but I'm finding the hovers are still coming up in English. What is the 'trigger' for the language to change and can this be used in conjunction with a website translated with WPML?

    Hi Chris, the hovers do not utilize the .po language files. If you'd like to see the hovers translated into your language, instructions here! -


    More about the trigger:

    If you'd rather specify the language, you can do so by going to your SexyBookmarks settings page -> "Language for Tooltips" section.

    Ironically, I found this old post the other day: http://blog.shareaholic.com/2011/05/need-your-help-help-us-translate-shareaholic-into-your-language/

    As it was closed to comments, I Emailed Shareaholic, and ended up sending the Chinese (Traditional) translations to a Celeste Reign, Accounts Engineer, who responded. So, hopefully Chinese (Traditional) will show up in a future version. Can you confirm she received the translations my wife provided?

    As for the trigger method, the issue I can see with that is I know lots of Chinese Americans and Chinese Canadians that only communicate in Chinese, but live in North America. I gather they would still see the English text, so even if the translations my wife did are added, her Chinese speaking clients in Canada will still see English. Is it not possible to consider wrapping the hovers in GETTEXT so QTranslate or WPML's String Translations can pick those up from a .PO file?

    If you'd rather specify the language (vs letting it be dynamically set based on the language set in the users OS), you can do so by going to your SexyBookmarks settings page -> "Language for Tooltips" section and setting a language.
