[Plugin: Tweetable] Translations? (6 posts)

    Hello,
    will there soon be a possibility to translate the tweetable plugin? Especially the widget needs an ability to be translated in non-english blogs. My blog, for example, is mainly used by childen and teens as well as very old people (Blog of a church community). Many of them only have basic school education and so they do not understand the English language properly.
    For this reason I hope you will implement gettext support soon. If wished, I can provide and maintain a German translation.

    Best wishes

    I will probably add gettext support in the future, but not until sometime after the Weblog Tools Collection plugin competition ends for the year. I don't want to introduce any extra complications until I have the functionality perfected. So, maybe sometime in August?

    Especially the widget needs an ability to be translated in non-english blogs.

    If you go to the Widgets page in the admin, you can change the name of the widget. The text for the follower count isn't customizable, but I will try to remember to gettext it when I add localization support to the plugin.

    I like your plugin, and want to localize him to russian language. Bot when i run "xgettext" mi outpot .po file has been empty. Why you don't use "__" or "_e" functions? If you are interesterd in localization your plugin and update plugin with this functions - tell me please, and i translate him to russian.

    wbr, qnub

    qnub, the plugin doesn't have "__" or "_e" functions yet, but I plan to add them in the near future. Stay tuned. :)

    It would be nice to make following things localizable:
    months names and date format (in Germany we write "23. Juli" instead of "July 23").

    I'd have to tie the date/time stamps into however WordPress handles date localization. This is something I've been looking at doing anyway, if just so the timezone can be customized more easily...
