Translating Soholaunch into another language

For purposes of example, let's say we want to translate Soholaunch into Piglatin.

Make a copy of the current english.php strings file

Grab this file from one of your soho sites (make sure it's on the latest available version so you get the most up-to-date strings file)...

sohoadmin/language/english.php

Rename your copy to "mylanguage.php", like so:

piglatin.php

Open the file (piglatin.php) in some kind of text/code editor. Plain-ol' Windows' Notepad will work, but I'd recommend something that has syntax highlighting for php files (for the sake of readability).

Now it's just a matter of going through and translating every line.

For example, you'd change this line...

$lang["Main Menu"] = "Main Menu";

...into something like this:

$lang["Main Menu"] = "Hoofd Menu";

When you're finished, send your translated language file to tech.team at soholaunch.com and we'll integrate it into the next product build.
