Translate Tags, Options and Formats

This Plugin transparently translates tags/options and format variables from English to other languages (for the happyness of our foreign friends smile ).

The translation happens only at Edit and Preview time.

  • the stored form is always English
  • at Edit time the english TAGS are translated
    • this way you edit in your preferred language
  • at Preview time the tags are translated back to English
    • this way all the twiki/plugins machinery works as usual

The table of Translations is kept in the TagTranslations topic (by default).

Plugin settings

  • One line description, shown in the TextFormattingRules topic:
    • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = Translates TAGS on-the-fly for editing in foreign languages.
  • Topic containing the translations (default: TagTranslations)
  • Language setting (you can place it also in a global/web/user preference topic)
    • Set LANG = it
  • Set to 1 to enable some debug
    • Set DEBUG = 0

Syntax Example

Each translation is stored as a table row as in the example below.
English Translated Language
SEARCH.format.topic CERCA.formato.pagina it
SEARCH.format.topic CHERCHE.format.page FR

Is it working?

Check for correct installation by uncommenting the above TOPIC setting. This will enable the example translations above.

  • on edit the %SEARCH{"Plugin" format="$topic"}% tag below will be translated to %CERCA{"Plugin" formato="$pagina"}%.
  • on preview the search will work fine as usual.
