Coming as part of the Mods for HESK 3.4.0 update is a massive overhaul to the translation system.  Let’s take a look at some of the new features to make translating Mods for HESK easier than ever.

Translate Languages Online

The biggest change to the translation system is the ability to translate Mods for HESK strings online. Instead of modifying the language file manually in a text editor, you can now modify the string directly online, with the results immediately being available for download as soon as clicking “Save Changes”.

The edit language page allows you to translate Mods for HESK without having to touch a text file

The edit language page allows you, the user, to edit all types of translatable content (regular text, plain-text emails, and HTML emails).  Once finished making changes, simply click “Save Changes” to save, or “Discard Changes” to go back to the language site without saving anything.

Translated strings vs non-translated strings are clearly indicated. Non-translated strings will appear on top, making it easy to translate.

User Accounts

In order to actually translate anything, you will need to create an account at the Mods for HESK website. All you need is an email address, name, and password! Once you start contributing to translations, your name will automatically be added as a contributor to the languages you help translate.

 

Other Notes

  • Strings that were not created or modified by Mods for HESK will not appear in the list of strings to translate. This is because Mods for HESK will synchronize its list of HESK strings on a regular basis to keep an updated set of translations.
  • When creating an account, your privacy is of the upmost security. Passwords are security salted and hashed, and your contact information will never be sold or distributed to any third-parties.
  • Translated strings are community-created and verified. If a translation is wrong, simply fix it! There is no verification/confirmation process to translated strings.

Looking forward to the new translation changes?
