The information is in English only. It would be nice if the page is devided inThe page should provide information in all available languages with a section for each language, with a "Set to [language]" button with each section, instead of a dropdown box.

Item687 applies here as well. -- AJA

i don't think this can be done using the current infrastructure because %MAKETEXT% doesn't accept a language parameter.


With the provided patches (attached) it is possible, using this syntax:
%MAKETEXT{"mytext" lang="de"}%

Performance wise my hacked up code can be improved, because now every time a lang parameter is provided a new I18N object is created.


One more thing is needed: the ability to loop through the available languages and write a custom text. What I would like:

Change the interface language to English [Set to English]

Sprache wechseln nach Deutsch [Sprache zu Deutsch wechseln]



I don't think it would be smart to do this. What about when we get 40 translations ?


  1. We don't have 40 languages now
  2. We can add a TOC at the top
