Plugins Language Switcher WordPress plugin version 1.4 is published May, 22nd, 2012.
I extended plugin’s users base. While administrators only used this plugin earlier, any registered user with ‘edit_posts’ capability can use “Plugins language switcher” now. Starting from version 1.4, look for “Plugins language switcher” menu item under “Tools” submenu.
Other langauge existing translation files need to be updated to correpond the current changes.
Help of the former translators and (of course) newcomers are very appreciated!
Do you have PGC translation in some other language? Share it with other WordPress users.
Some phrases in PGC translation files still need to be translated. Do you wish to help? You are welcome!
This plugin shows in the language selection drop down list all languages which you have in blog wp-content/languages and wp-content/plugins directories. It is possible to setup different back-end languages for different users. Plugin stores selected language value locally on user’s computer using cookies.
After 6 months of participation in WordPress plugins developement I still wonder how people from all over the World help each other in order to make their sweet blog platform better. Thanks to all current and future contributors!
One useful note: Please not be confused with usual WordPress language translation files naming scheme
nn_NN– language code, e.g.
es_Es, etc. Such scheme is valid not for all languages. For example for Japanese we must use just a
jaas the language code.
So today, at April, 15, 2010 I had to rename
ure-ja.mo. The source of information about WordPress specific language codes can be found here. I didn’t change plugin version and left it as 2.0.3 to not bother plugin users with plugin update requirement. If you downloaded URE 2.0.3 package yesterday, just rename Japanese language files according to the scheme above or download the latest installation package.

To make new version of the plugin available to public faster I use on-line translators to update plugin language files. Of course, I understand, that easy accessible automated translation technologies (Google, Yahoo, other on-line services) are not good enough yet to replace a human in this field. So I include such on-line translated files into plugin’s package just as the starting point for some enthusiastic person to help me with real human translation. If you can help with my plugins translation to other languages, you are welcome! Left me your email via Contact form and I will send you my email address where you can send translation files.
I use Poedit software for work with translation files. If you have not experience in translation files creation/modification please read this article and related materials.
