hint

The needed directory structure has changed in version 0.7.2

Used search filters in php and xml files:

  • JText::_(“COM_COMPONENTNAME”)

  • JText::script(“COM_COMPONENTNAME”)

  • label=”COM_COMPONENTNAME”

  • description=”COM_COMPONENTNAME”

  • hint=”COM_COMPONENTNAME”

  • title=”COM_COMPONENTNAME”

  • <name>COM_COMPONENTNAME</name>

  • <description>COM_COMPONENTNAME</description>

  • <![CDATA[COM_COMPONENTNAME]]>

This is just a little helper so you don`t have to copy and paste all your translation strings by hand.

Your ini files need the following syntax

TRANSLATION_STRING = 'translation'
do not use a syntax like
TRANSLATION_STRING='translation'

and only use ' not "

Or you start without any ini files and let jootranslate create it for you.

Your component needs the following directory structure

admin
    - controllers
    - language
    - etc ...
site
    - controllers
    - language
    - etc...
