editing .ini files in language directory

Postby evebohnett » Fri Dec 30, 2011 10:49 am

Soooo... I'd like to be able to edit some of the content in a particular file in my language/en-GB directory to include all languages. For example, my website has a viral marketing feature that allows people to send facebook posts to invite their friends.
in the language/en-GB directory there is a en-GB.com_parainvite.ini file with the message code:

PI_IMP_FACEBOOK_MESSAGE="Check out my profile! I set up a profile where I can post my pictures, videos and events and I want to add you as a friend so you can see it. First you need to join ! Then you can also create your own profile."
PI_IMP_FACEBOOK_LINK_NAME=" Joomla, Community Builder, JomSocial extensions"

If someone clicks on a flag on my page and it goes to internationalkirtan.com/be/inviter

will that page then pick up the be.com_parainvite.ini file in the language/be

or does gtranslate not use the language/en-GB files at all?

Okay, so my question is do I need to create separate language directories for all of the languages and translate this message in the (language).com_parainvite.ini?

It doesn't use the internal language files. You don't need to create anything. To edit it you need to go to the language you want to edit, find the page where the text you want to edit is located and add ?language_edit=1 to edit it.
