I think localization is very important if you want to use Radiant for
business. I’m really looking forward to translate Radiant in Dutch so I
can use it for the websites of my customers. The only problem is that
they need/want a Dutch admin interface.
My experience with the localization plugin of Thomas F. is very good.
Implementing this in Radiant wouldn’t be that much work. Besides that,
the plugin is very simple and straightforward, which makes it perfect
for this application.
I am in the middle of adding localisation support myself. “Almost” done
- and didn’t find this post until now
I cannot agree more, Edwin! I believe this is very important! It might
hold back a bunch of users/sites/co-developers. Use the momentum while
it’s there. SO many open-source projects has died due to lack of
interest. Also, adding localisation early is a good practice…
The localisation I have added is using Ruby-GetText
(http://www.yotabanana.com/hiki/ruby-gettext-howto-rails.html) as an
approach, and it seems to work nicely. One of the real goodies about
this is the availability of tools to aid the translation. I choose it
due to the simplicity and the tools “age”.
I was planning to submit a patch to the dev-masters when done. Now I am
a bit sure if they really want it or not?
