Setting the language

14 March 2011 at 2:54am

Hi, I have been trying out Silvercart and very much like what you have done. (I didn't have great success with the ecommerce module).

Anyway, how and where do I set the language to English? No doubt it is staring me in the face but I cannot see how to do it.

Also, is there a smart(er) way to change "VAT" to "GST", for example, rather than editing individual files?

Hi mck,

to set the language to english, you have to add the following line to your project's _config.php (e.g. /mysite/_config.php):

// Set the site locale

After an initial /dev/build, SilverCart's sites and configurations should be created with the english language.

To use customized translations without changing the code of SilverCart, you can add this to your _config.php (this case expects your project's name to be 'mysite'):

i18n::register_plugin('mysite', 'getCustomTranslation', 100);
function getCustomTranslation() {
global $lang;
$lang['en_US']['SilvercartProduct']['VAT'] = 'GST';
$lang['en_US']['SilvercartPage']['INCLUDED_VAT'] = 'included GST';
$lang['en_US']['SilvercartPage']['TAX'] = 'incl. %s%% GST';

Thanks Sebastian,

That function worked a treat!
