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 language available is German, since one of our developers is German. German will be a standard language and will be developer maintained. But of course any feedback about typos or other errors is appreciated.
Note to our German users: Die Ãœbersetzung verwendet als Anrede das förmlichere "Sie", welches mir passender auch für den professionellen Einsatz erschien, da ich es vorziehe, wenn mir Software mit einer gewissen Distanz begegnet. Wer hingegen das freundlichere "Du" (...)

Translating Tutorial

Note 1: 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.

Note 2: On some servers translations do not work because of a bug in Apache's mod_perl. It concerns Apache version 2.4.46 and maybe earlier versions. Since Zenphoto does not require mod_perl you may disable it to make translations work again.
If you use MAMP (MacOS) for local development go to
/Applications/MAMP/conf/apache/httpd.conf and comment the line: LoadModule perl_module modules/ by prepending the line with a hash (#). If you don't have control over the server, contact your host. (...)

We finally managed to finish a new theming tutorial. Actually it is a largely updated version of the old and now defunc tutorial that GameDudeX wrote way back then.
