Add a new language on a site powered by PHP Pro Bid v7:

1. Copy "en_US.mo", "en_US.po" and "en_US.php", from the "config/data/language," and rename them. Now, the files will have the same name as the locale of the language you wish to translate into.

2. Edit "config/global.config.php":

'translations' => array( array( 'locale' => 'en_US', 'path' => __DIR__ . '/data/language/en_US', 'img' => 'flags/en_US.png', 'desc' => 'English', 'sources' => array( array( 'adapter' => 'Cube\Translate\Adapter\Gettext', 'extension' => 'mo', ), array( 'adapter' => 'Cube\Translate\Adapter\ArrayAdapter', 'extension' => 'php', ), ), ), #NEW-LANGUAGES# ),

and replace #NEW-LANGUAGES# with:

array( 'locale' => '%LOCALE%', 'path' => __DIR__ . '/data/language/%LOCALE%', 'img' => 'flags/%LOCALE%.png', 'desc' => '%LANGUAGE-NAME%', 'sources' => array( array( 'adapter' => 'Cube\Translate\Adapter\Gettext', 'extension' => 'mo', ), array( 'adapter' => 'Cube\Translate\Adapter\ArrayAdapter', 'extension' => 'php', ), ), ),

where %LOCALE% is the name of the language files you will add, without any extension, and %LANGUAGE-NAME% is the name of the language.

3. Use a gettext editor (eg.: Poedit) to translate the sentences from the .po file.

4. In the website's admin area, go to "Site Content" > "Edit Language Files", select language from the right drop-down, translate all sentences from the left text box and paste them in the right text box.

5. When upgrading to a new version, to upgrade the translated .po file, open Poedit and access "Catalog" > "Update from POT File" and select the English .po file from the latest update. Any new sentences will appear in the .po file.

Important: If a sentence appears in both files, please note that the array adapter (php file) has a higher priority .
