[Documentation] Trying to translate Vanilla

edited April 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.2


I'm new to the forums so first of all I'd like to introduce myself.

My name is George Girtsou, I'm 20 years old, I'm a Web Developer and founder of I recently discovered Vanilla Forums project which I find awesome! Enough with the introduction, let's move to the subject.

I'm trying to translate Vanilla to Greek language and I have to say I did follow all the instructions.

Here's what I did:

  • I downloaded Baseline locale so I had a place to start.
  • Put the baseline directory inside /locales directory.
  • Renamed it to 'greek' (of course without the quotes).
  • Translated the files.
  • Enabled from Admin Panel the Greek locale.
  • Set Greek locale as the default one.

I did everything by the book but it won't show the translated (Greek) strings. I checked if there was an option for users to set their language but there wasn't.

I also checked if my theme has the t() function passed on - and it has.

Warmest Regards,

George Girtsou
