I'm trying to setup a multiple language site, and I've got no hair left!
I'm running ic 5.6 with the default <catroot>/dbconf/locales/default.cfg,
with the xx_YY.cfg file for each language, which includes :
Variable CURLOCALE xx_YY
I have configured my locale table with this to test with xx_YY only for now:
ProductFiles products products_xx_YY
products de_products products_xx_YY
variable.txt has this:
DEFAULT_LOCALE en_US Internationalization
LOCALES xx_YY yy_ZZ aa_BB Internationalization
I've created the ./products/products_xx_YY.txt and the
With the fields I see that are MAPped in default.cfg, on reconfig, my table
loaded ok with one item to test.
On the front-end, I view the product from the products_xx_YY language
(title, desc, comment) but all
Other fields that are present in products.txt and that are not in
products_xx_YY.txt don't show. I thought
that they would fallback to products.txt if absent or empty.
I'll also have to do the categories, prod_group, AND (variants?!?).
I'm now very puzzled with the following 4 questions:
-- When using a non default locale, does IC fetch ALL fields from
products.txt and then
replace the ones that are mapped only, in the default.cfg? Or do I need 100%
columns in my locale products_xx_YY files?
-- For cat and prod_group, do I have to create cat_xx_YY and
prod_group_xx_YY also the
same as I did for the products?
-- I see the options mapped in default.cfg, do I have to map the variants
be able to localize variants?
-- All together, once everything will be working, does the MAP in the
IC to populate all locale files (products_xx_YY.txt, options_xx_YY.txt,
variants_xx_YY.txt ? )
when creating a new product? Or do these files have to be done
I propose to write the full manual on this once I get it straight, seems to
be lacking a
good How-To on this subject.
Thanks in advance for your help, I'm desperate to figure this out
