    Arabic language accessories

    I think that all of the files attached are helpful, and might be useful for ALL vBulletin 3.5 versions
    These files are:
    • Arabic Images (for default style)
    • Plug-in to support Arabic correctly
    • Arabic language for installation & upgrade system

    Note: installation & upgrade system's files are not ready to issued, so it's not included now, but maybe at future.

      Arabic language v3.5.1 released

      This is my FIRST translation for vBulletin, since I noticed that there isn't any Arabic official language or a perfect Arabic translation work,
      According to that, I shared my translation in hope that it would help someone else.
      Since now up to, I would provide this forum by ALL of my Arabic translation, and I would support ONLY the last release I issued.
      This translation might contain spilling errors due to the speed that I write with.
      So if you found one, please report it in the discuses thread.
      Note: this release didn't contain the Control Panel Help Text phrases except it's titles.

        Arabic language v3.5.2 released

        It takes more than 4 hours to review the 3.5.1 file, discovering the new changes and applying it.
        Remember that ALL links had been reviewed to make sure that there isn't any incompatible link,
        also REMEMBER: now arabic_language_3-5-1.xml isn't supported!!!
        For example:
        HTML Code:
        <a href="{1}">{2}</a>
        Instead of:
        HTML Code:
        <a href="$var">{1}</a>
        Phrase changes from 3.5.1 to 3.5.2
        • Phrases moved from Postbit to GLOBAL
          • x_is_invisible
          • x_is_offline
          • x_is_online_now

          • badskype
          • display_skype_name

            Arabic language v3.0.10 released

            It takes about 2 hours to edit the 3.5.2 file, discovering the changes and replacing it.

            Remember that THIS FILE could be used for vBulletin 3.0.9 without any problem,
            Also, you can use vBulletin 3.5.1 for vBulletin 3.5.0, because there where no differences between this versions in the phrases.

            Also a bug/HTML error had been detected in this phrase:
            HTML Code:
            <phrase name="decimal_separator"><![CDATA[Decimal Separator <dfn>(The character used to separate integers from floating point number components, such as the . used in 0.01. To specify a space, please use the underscore <b>_</b>)</)</dfn>]]></phrase>
            It sould be replaced with:
            HTML Code:
            <phrase name="decimal_separator"><![CDATA[Decimal Separator <dfn>(The character used to separate integers from floating point number components, such as the . used in 0.01. To specify a space, please use the underscore <b>_</b>)</dfn>]]></phrase>
            Now I supports Arabic ONLY for this version:
            • vBulletin 3.0.10
            • vBulletin 3.5.2
            Enjoy!

              A few minutes in fetching vBulletin 3.0.11 language file, I found no differences between it and vBulletin 3.0.10

              So you could use the above file for your vBulletin 3.0.11 also.

              And now I supports Arabic ONLY for this version:
              • vBulletin 3.0.11
              • vBulletin 3.5.2
              Sorry for my weak English.

                  Why vB Lang v3.0.12 == v3.0.11 == v3.0.10 == v3.0.9

                  I found that there is NO CHANGES had been made in the vBulletin 3.0.12 language file since vBulletin 3.0.9, that's mean:
                  • you can use 3.0.9 Arabic file -located above- for all next version including 3.0.12 without any problems
                  • vBulletin 3.0.x since 3.0.9 had been released for security reasons, not for new features.

                  I detect that the install/tableprefix.php file, contain too many phrases in English, though vBulletin 3.5.3 had been fixed in this case!!
                  Also I detect that the error in this phrase:
                  HTML Code:
                  <phrase name="decimal_separator"><![CDATA[Decimal Separator <dfn>(The character used to separate integers from floating point number components, such as the . used in 0.01. To specify a space, please use the underscore <b>_</b>)</)</dfn>]]></phrase>
                  That should be replaced with:
                  HTML Code:
                  <phrase name="decimal_separator"><![CDATA[Decimal Separator <dfn>(The character used to separate integers from floating point number components, such as the . used in 0.01. To specify a space, please use the underscore <b>_</b>)</dfn>]]></phrase>
                  Steal exists in vBulletin 3.0.12!!
                  Could we say that vBulletin team didn't support vBulletin 3.0.x enough?
                  Maybe they are busy in developing vBulletin 3.5.x
                  And now I support Arabic ONLY for this version:
                  • vBulletin 3.0.12
                  • vBulletin 3.5.3

                    Windows and *NIX now supported

                    While most people will want the .zip version with windows-1256 encoding of the Arabic vBulletin language, others particularly those using *NIX OS may prefer the .gz version with UTF-8 encoding.

                    So since now up to, I would release Arabic language with two versions:
                    • arabic-language_3-x-x.zip using windows-1256 encoding.
                    • arabic-language_3-x-x.gz using UTF-8 encoding.
                    hope this helps somebody who trapped in this problem.

                    Note: I asked vBulletin team to support Gzip ext.
                    If they didn't enable it, I won't be able to support Gzip or UTF-8 encoding.

                      Zip or Gzip!

                      • Gzip filetype.
                      • windows-1256 encoding.
                      • UTF-8 encoding.
                      but I found that you didn't support Gzip attachments, could you add new attachment's extension to enable gzip in this forums.

                      ext: .gz
                      content-type: application/x-gzip-compressed
                      filesize: 500 KB (512000 Bytes) at least.

                      I hope that you did it!!
                      So I would release this versions of files:
                      • arabic-language_3-x-x_win1256.zip
                      • arabic-language_3-x-x_utf-8.zip

                            Transfer methods

                            For those people who are prefer the UTF-8 Arabic package, when you transfer the package via FTP or an other transfer protocol, you SHOULD transfer it using the BINARY method, it's not an ASCII file to transfer it using the ASCII method.


                            So remember to use the binary method instead of the ASCII method for this kind of files!

                              I'm back, but not really!

                              It had been more that 16 months since my last login into my account due to financial problems as my account get inactive!
                              As you know, those who live in the third world can't afford vBulletin membership fees, and I'm one of them.

                              You may also recognize that my English still poor even with my recent tiny improvements!

                              I haven't any ability to download vB language files right now, and I may need you to donate for keeping my best. Anyone of you may purchase owned license for me! I would be very thankful for that.

                              Probably I said many something that I shouldn't, but that's how things went up with me!

                              By the way, I want to say Congratulations to Kier & Boxy with my best wishes to them.

                              I may read a lot of threads these days to understand your developments, and I will be waiting for your support, you could contact me by email or private messages, Note that I may not respond to your messages immediately as I may get the language file and there would be a lot of work to be done in that case.
                              Sorry for my weak English.
                              My aim is to become PHP Developer.
