Language override

  1. How to configure/install other languages in this theme?
  2. After I configuing other language according to Omeka’s guide (add language code in the config file) the Curatescape Story’s body such as subtitle, story, Factoid etc., have disappeard. After I deleting the language code, it appears again.

So, please let me know how to add the override, I can do translation and share with other users of this project.

Thank you very much for your great job.

Hi @cymby,

I wasn’t able to reproduce this issue when using a valid language code.

  • Does your issue persist when you are using a different theme?
  • Are you getting any error messages?

Thank you so much for your prompt reply! :bouquet:

There was no error message. But, those words that are used only for this theme, such as STORY, TOUR, RELATED TOURS, haven’t being translated properly, still keep English. These words doesn’t occur in the default theme. Therefore, I suppose I need to add a translation for those special words. I found the language files, however. the .mo format can’t be read and check whether the translation has contained these words.

Please let me know how I can do next. Thanks again!

I noticed there is customization of labels such as tour. However, it has not covered all…

Hi @cymby,

You’ll need to create the translation files yourself, which is a bit of a process.
