FAQ
Hey, Got my list up and running.
I would like to enable multi-language support so that users can
subscribe in their own language. I have some issues with this.

- Is it possible to change the 'Introductory Description' depending on
the language.

- I edited html pages of the list (General list information page) but
changes are not applied to the same page in the other languages.

- Can I directly link to a language version of a page. So that users
don't have to choose from the drop-down box.

- It appears that some of the paragraphs are not translated. For example
on the 'General list information page' the section subscribers is
never translated. I would be more than happy to translate these. But
where should I add my translation? Just not to break things.

All this is on MailMan 2.1.1.

Kindest regards,
-Jeroen-

    Apparantly, yes I can. Since it is just an ordinary form.

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to change the templates so that the sentences are in the
    selected language, but for the the last section in the listinfo template
    I don't find any phrases. There just some tags.

    <tr>
    <td colspan="2" width="100%">
    <MM-Roster-Form-Start>
    <MM-Roster-Option>
    <MM-Form-End>
    <p>
    <MM-Options-Form-Start>
    <MM-Editing-Options>
    <MM-Form-End>
    </td>
    </tr>

    Now, where are these defined. And how can I change this code so that I
    can translate the sentences?

    Hi,

    <MM-Roster-Form-Start>
    Now, where are these defined. And how can I change this code so that I
    can translate the sentences?
    They are defined in the python program and use the translation
    catalog which is in <mailmandir>/messages/<lang>/mailman.[mp]o .

    Check if your .mo file is installed. In some os (solaris)
    where bsd install is missing, .mo file is not installed by
    the alternative sh script install.sh which is included in
    the distribution.

    Of course I'm on Solaris and the .mo file is missing. :-(
    Is there another way to do translations? Is there somewhere a reference.

    Here is a patch for <srcdir>/messages/Makefile.in. You can edit
    Makefile directly and skip configure.
