  • About vBulletin Mobile Language Packs - Android v2.0

    Dear Staff,

    following the post made by Staff Trevor Hannant

    1. Check if your language is already compiled for Android v2.0.
      If answer yes, do nothing, the app will work in your language. If it is not, continue with the following steps.
    Question: Where to check this please ? in " Android20_language_packs.zip" ?
    if yes, we can rightly found the Arabic language xml file, but, in this case: we have "nothing to do" as suggested above ?
    why i'm asking this ? :
    • because the Arabic xml file contains some spelling mistakes
    • the Arabic xml file contains missing phrases comparing to other xml files, in " Android20_language_packs.zip"
    • the Arabic language in Android v2.0 has already non-translated phrases as the word "calendar", this word is in 564 line in the English xml (total 713 lines), the Arabic xml has only 541 lines
    thank you very much for your time to make some clarifications about these questions,

        thank you Wayne, so all the answers are supposed to be yes,

        1. Open and translate all the strings to your language utilizing UTF-8 encoding within the relevant XML file
        how to do this ? open the english xml and translate with notepad++ for example ? how to do it in UTF-8 ?

          Your text editor should have an option to save files as UTF-8. Many do it by default these days. For instance, my text editor of choice is Microsoft's Visual Studio Code. To save or open a file as UTF-8, I can just click on an indicator in the status bar. You'll need to consult the documentation of your editor to find out how to do this.

              Hi Wayne, please should i modify the xml file to be exactly the same as the english xml file ? same strings with same orders or should i keep it as i found it in "Android20_language_packs.zip" ?
              because we can notice there is difference between english and arabic xml file for example:

              english xml file:
              Code:
                  <!-- Login Activity -->
                  <string name="login_email_hint">Email Address</string>
                  <string name="login_username_hint">Username</string>
                  <string name="login_password_hint">Password</string>
                  <string name="login_login_button">Login</string>
                  <string name="login_skip_login_text">Skip</string>
              arabic xml file:
              Code:
                  <!-- Login Activity -->
                  <string name="login_username_hint">اسم المستخدم</string>
                  <string name="login_password_hint">كلمة المرور</string>
                  <string name="login_login_button">تسجيل الدخول</string>
                  <string name="login_signup_above_text">ليس لديك اشتراك بعد؟</string>
                  <string name="login_signup_button">أنشىء اشتراك</string>
                  <string name="login_skip_login_text">تخطى الآن</string>
                  <string name="login_enter_button">إدخال</string>

                  and what about missing strings in arabic xml files ? we can see the example above:

                  Code:
                   <string name="login_email_hint">Email Address</string>

                    You can add them to the Arabic file. New versions of the app will add and subtract phrases over time. Depending on how many phrases are missing, it may just be easier to re-translate the English file.
