Google group for zenphoto translators opened

We have opened a group for translators to inform you if we for example plan a new release so that the translations need to be updated or similar things regarding translations. Please sign in here:

Call For Translators: Zenphoto Becomes International!

We've finally managed to implement localization for Zenphoto! Translation capability is now available in the 1.1.6 release. The current implementation requires the native gettext extension installed in the PHP on your server. We hope later to add a workaround for those without native gettext. But we believe (and hope) most servers will have gettext installed by default. There may be still some glitches, so we are dependend on you to report problems on our forums.

The first (...)

Translating Tutorial

Note: This tutorial refers mainly to the development build of Zenphoto since localization/translation is a work in progress. Zenphoto includes a file "zp-core/functions-l18n.php" that contains a prefdefined list of languages and their related locales. Check this list to be sure your language is included. If it is not there, let us know and we will add it.

What should I know before starting a translation?

The poll is out of order

Sadly the update to Wordpress 2.5 broke the poll plugin we had installed to see what features gain the most interesst by you, our users. Additionally the author of that plugin does not support it anymore. We haven't found a replacement yet. So for the time being the poll is removed.

Here are the last known poll results:

  1. Move/Copy/Rename images and albums: 166
  2. Internationalization & localization: 122
  3. Automatic Image (...)

A guide to our functions guide

We have posted a short guide that hopefully will make it easier for you to work with our functions guide: How to read the Zenphoto functions guide

How to read the Zenphoto Functions Guide

When you first look at our functions guide it might look confusing and you may not understand what exactly it is telling you. You might ask "why don't they just write an understandable and readable guide that even non-developers can understand at first glance?" Well, actually the guide is not that hard to read once you get into it.

We are constantly updating and changing things, so that would take too much of our time write a guide manually. If one (...)
