german translation for 1.1 available ?
« on: February 27, 2008, 18:08:03 pm »
for VM 1.0.14 the language file was just an english.pgp or german.php

i can't use then anymore , because the language directoy in  VM 1.1.0  have a different structure.
it looks like that there are many  germany.php files needed, because there are many subdirectories like

is a german translation available ?

thanks for help

joomla 1.0.15

the problem is, that this file does not work at all...


at the moment iam in the migration process from 1.015 to 1.5x and i must say that iam very disapionted about the language support in VM at the moment....

the german_new.php terminates the complete administration area... tabs , info spots
no text at all...

and this file is realy for the 1.2 version ? i cant belive this....

such a importend thing like language does not work... unbeliveable.

i  hope i get some time for the translation of the english.php...

I'm using german language in VM 1.1.2 (also worked on previous versions) without any problem.

Perhaps you should check, if you have the file 'german.php' in your directory ...administrator\components\com_virtuemart\languages\common
The latest german.php file is 93kb and dated 25.05.2008

If I remember correctly, I also used the german_new.php for a while, but in order to use it, I'm pretty shure you have to rename it to german.php  ;)

Also, did you set german as the default language in Joomla?

Concerning using VM1.1 with Joomfish, see From what I see over at the Joomfish forum, it is currently unlikely that this combination works out of the box.
