Hi, this ist missing in your language file:
While localization I've got this errors:
�����������: Use of undefined constant _CO_ICMS_CUSTOMTAG_PERMISSION_VIEW - assumed '_CO_ICMS_CUSTOMTAG_PERMISSION_VIEW' in file /modules/system/admin/customtag/class/customtag.php line 143
�����������: Use of undefined constant _CO_ICMS_CUSTOMTAG_PERMISSION_VIEW_DSC - assumed '_CO_ICMS_CUSTOMTAG_PERMISSION_VIEW_DSC' in file /modules/system/admin/customtag/class/customtag.php line 143
I've got this when I change the language in admin menu (by clicking on the flag)
What does it mean?
Your questions seem solved. Great.
If you want, feel free improve the wiki documentation for this feature.
Correction.. Use the code zh when you enable multilanguages. This will enable Impress CMS to automatically change to Chinese when it encounters a Chinese enabled browser.
Ok, I figured this one out. When you enable Chinese in Preferences : Multilanguage, use the code zh to represent Chinese.. This is the code the browsers use. zh-cn might work too, but I havent tested it.
I installed the Simplified Chinese language pack and it appears to be working. In Control Panel : Preferences : Multilanguage, I have enable Multilanguage, added schinese and set "Autoselect the language depending the browser configuration" to yes. Then I had my friends in China look at the website, but they see everything as English by default. They have to manually choose Simplified Chinese from the langauge block. Any idea how to get this working?
Ok that was it. For anyone else struggling with this. Add all the files from the language pack. Rename the schinese_utf8 folders to schinese. In the control panel go to preferences:multilanguage and Enable multilanguage. If you did not install the french language pack, delete the fr and french. They are there by default, but the french language pack is not installed by default. Under "Multilanguage tags" add cn. Next to "Language names" add schinese. This name must match the name of the folders that were added by the language pack as well as the corresponding flag image located in the images folder. Next to "Language captions" Put what you would like to be displayed as the alt text for the flag image that users click to switch to that language. In this case I put 中文 which are the Simplified Chinese characters for the word "Chinese" (just in can you can't see them). Under "Charsets" add another UTF-8 separated by a comma (or just use the one that was already there for french). Click "Go" to save your changes. Then go to control panel: Blocks: and make the language selection block visible, or simply add the tag
I am reading the instructions here:
In Preferences > Multilanguage settings
It says I should enter the required Multilanguage pair names:
en = English
fr = French
es = Spanish
de = German
I only see en,fr. Do I need to add something here? If so what?
I couldn't find a Chinese language pack in the addons repository, but i found one linked on this forum. Here is where I downloaded the Chinese language pack I am using:
Is this the same one you're using? Because there seems to be something wrong.
If it is this complicated to get multilanguages working, the language packs really should include a readme file.
I really can follow directions. Honest I can..
it keeps showing French as a option, but I did not install french. if you choose french from the multilanguage block, nothing changes. This is a fresh install. I haven't changed anything except adding the schinese pack.
It is the latest stable release. 1.1.1 final
Debug mode is on. 0 errors.
Strange (I have done the same and all runned fine)
What is the iCMS release are you using? Any link for give a look to your page?
Please, in General Setting, put on Debug mode and tell if you can get error messages
Thank you for your help. I have followed your instructions exactly.
I go to Control panel: Preferences: General Settings. There I see the setting for default language. I change it to schinese_utf8. Then I click "Go". However, the menus are all in English.. The site does not change to Chinese.. Also I found a multilanguage block, so I made the multilanguage block visible, but only English and French are available as options.
Sorry. I am not an English speaker and perhaps my instructions were not clear.
The main language for the site: go to Control Panel; Preferences; General Settings.
In that page you will see: Default language; just select schinese_utf8 and save. Your page must to be in Chinese (I just have done a test and my page was in Chinese ;).

I hope this help you
Ok, I found that schinese_utf8 is listed as an optional language in the user's profile settings, but when i change it to schinese_utf8 and save the profile settings, nothing changes in the way the menus as displayed. Everything is still in English.. When I go back to the Profile settings, I see English displayed. Do I need to change some chmod some file/folder permissions to get it to work?
Also, this is not a very useful way to incorporate multiple languages. If someone finds my website, they will want to see an option to change to their native language on the homepage.. If they can't speak English, the will not register, and therefore they will not discover this option in their profile settings.. Is anyone else successfully using the Chinese language pack? If so, how did you implement it?
Sorry, maybe I don't understand the instructions you gave.
I have copied the files to my site root, in the same locations they were in my language pack.
Both folders are present in my site at these locations.
You must look then in your site:
I did that, but Chinese is not available in the language settings. Only English and French (but I didn't install french). Weird.
