One feature of our forum application that we've never really explored is the ability to use multiple languages for the interface.  So, I decided to change that, and add Norwegian language files, since we have a pretty significant number of active users from that country.  I was wondering if anyone had any other requests for forum languages?  If so, please post them here, and I'll see what I can do to add them.  A few things to mention first:

-This only affects the forum interface, it won't translate posts.
-Relating to the point above, we still expect everyone here to post in English primarily.
-The interface translation will not carry over to our website, it will apply only to the forum.

The languages available are:
  • Albanian
  • Arabic
  • Bangla
  • Bulgarian
  • Catalan
  • Chinese (Simplified and/or Traditional)
  • Croatian
  • Czech
  • Danish
  • Dutch
  • Finnish
  • French
  • Galician
  • Georgian (the country, not the state)
  • German (already installed)
  • Greek
  • Hebrew
  • Hindi
  • Hungarian
  • Indonesian
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Kurdish ("kurmanji" and "sorani", whatever those are)
  • Macedonian
  • Norwegian (already installed)
  • Persian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese (Brazillian and "normal")
  • Romanian
  • Russian (already installed)
  • Serbian (with Cyrillic or Latin characters)
  • Slovak
  • Slovenian
  • Spanish (Latin and "normal)
  • Swedish
  • Thai
  • Turkish
  • Ukranian
  • Urdu
  • Vietnamese

Ok, so far, I hear votes for Spanish, French, German, and Japanese.  The rest don't have translations available; the list in the first post of this thread is all that we can install, unless someone wants to write a translation and contribute to the SMF project.

I'd prefer to have more than just one person who'll use a language to install it, so if anyone would like to second the nominations for Spanish, French, and German, please post about it.  Posts from others who'll use Japanese would helpful too.

I'm currently out of town, but I'll look into this more when I return.

Ok, that's a lot of votes for German!  It's now been installed, as well as Japanese.

Spanish and French have also been suggested, but I'd prefer not to install a language pack for just one person, so if you'd like to see these, please reply.  And, if you'd like to see any other languages, reply suggesting them.  Please note that languages which aren't on the list in the initial post in this thread can't be added.

I second Spanish! That's really the only other language I sort of kind of not really can speak!

It's because all the awesome people pick it when presented with the German/French/Spanish choice.

I agree, why can't we see stuff in a dead language?

As mentioned above, it's because no one's written a language pack for our forum software in Latin yet.  Same reason we can't use Klingon, or any of a couple dozen real, live languages that don't have language packs available either.

If you'd like to write one, you're welcome to, I'm sure the Simple Machines community would welcome the contribution, but keep in mind that it requires translating thousands of individual strings of text, from single words to entire help documents.
