German add on for 2.3.1

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

For oscommerce 2.3.1 I installed the full German language pack 2.2. The result is mixed. I copied the files on the server, set German as default. Here is a screenshot. http://www.phpages.org/temp/oscde.jpg

Some fields (buttons) like the basket work. Others, like new products, are scrambled. Can anyone suggest what I did wrong?

 

I am not an up to date developer (at all). Last site I did was in html with css (2 years ago). Before I study php in depth I would like to lean on others. Is there someone who knows where to find open source templates for 2.3.1 to play around with?

 

Cheers

Peter

It looks like the package you got is missing some language defines, or it is not one for version 2.3.1

 

The best free template to learn on is the default osCommerce template that you got

This is how you should proceed.

 

Start with a brand new 2.31

 

1. Make a copy of english.php and rename it german.php

2. Make a copy of the language folder /english/ rename it /german/

3. Add a German flag icon to /german/images/

4. Translate all the language defines from english to german

Thanks to both answers

 

1 I agree that the supplied standard look is a good start

 

2 I agree that the 'do it yourself approach' is a good way to learn and make sure that it works. Every good product is cumbersome to do, that's life.

 

Thanks again, at least it does not look like I am totally out of touch.

Cheers

Peter
