Locale Portuguese

Postby rafaelmr » Thu Feb 02, 2006 10:58 am


I get the locale file to portuguese (pt_BR) and extract it. I update the file registry/locales.xml adding the follow lines:

<locale key="pt_BR" name="Portugues"/>

But in the system configuration (Languages Settings) don't appear the language pt_BR. On "Install Languanges" it shows the message "No additional locales are available for installation.".

Anybody can help me?

Hi Rafael,

Your registry/locales.xml file should look like:

Code: Select all

        <locale key="en_US" name="English"/>
        <locale key="pt_BR" name="Português (Brasil)"/>
Unless I've misunderstood your comment, you've added an extra <locales> ... </locales> tag.

If this doesn't work, check to ensure that your locales/cache directory (particularly locales/cache/locales.inc.php) is writable by your web server.

Then log in as site administrator and check out the site-wide languages page -- note that each journal has a languages page too, but you'll need the Site Administrator's language page specifically.
