pLog welcomes asian users!

When we started to develop pLog, we knew that localization was going to be a very important feature for us. It might not shine as much as some other features, and it is often overlooked, but it has indeed become one of our "best selling" features. I was browsing the list of people who have reached this site recently (the list of referrers) and I was very happy to see that pLog has gained a lot of ground amongst asian users, specially Chinese users. I have also seen a few more sites offering blogging services in this list, and that is very exciting for us too :)

< !-- ADS -->
From here, we would like to thank all these new users for using pLog and hope that they are going to stay with us and help us improve pLog. But we would like to thank even more the persons who did the "dirty" job of translating pLog to languages like simplified Chinese, Chinese or Japanese. We would have never reached many of these asian users without proper translations so thanks a lot, translators!
Finally, wouldn't it be fantastic if we could offer support in the forums in as many languages as possible? It is a fact that not everybody has had the chance to learn the English language, and that is why for example there is a forum section for Spanish speaking users. Why not having a section for Chinese, Japanese or any other language users?
We would of course need a few of you to help us with these tasks, since none of us speaks theselanguages. The profile should be of somebody with fair experience with pLog, willing to visit the forums once or twice a day at most (we don't expect it will generate too much work) And any issue that cannot be solved, could be "escalated" to development team for further inspection. If you're interested, please leave a comment here or in the forums!

  3. Comment multiple language support

    As you see, a blog site may need to support English, Chinese, French, etc. at the same time. So the best encoding choice must be UTF-8.

    For such an intl. setting, the best choice for the interface language is English, however.

    So the hard-binding language with encoding is actually not so preferrable. For example, in the default en_UK locale, the iso-8859-1 is hard-bound. Well one can of course change the locale_en_UK.php file of course, but that's another story. You can not do this kind of switching from the global settings section.

    So I added a locale_en_UTF8.php, the only difference is the encoding being set to UTF-8. And then add this new locale file to the system. Well, now the interface is English, but all intl. languages, i mean, their speicial characters are supported on the same page.

    One problem: in the list of locale page in the global settings section, when the page encoding is UTF-8, it does not display properly because the existence of Espanol, Catalon... Since the descriptions are hard-included in the locale file again...

    However, in short, plog is great!
