Is this test fine?
« on: June 17, 2014, 08:47:03 pm »

My client has a six language site and wants me to use jDiction. I am a bit concerned as the download csv has all the table tags which I do not know how well those translate. Here is my check results.. How do I resolve the "Multiple Plugins have the same loading position (0)" or will that not matter?
My Results are:

    Library Version: 1.2.0
    Joomla Version 3.2.4 is untested.

Plugin    

    JDiction Plugin is enabled
    Languagefilter is enabled
    Multiple Plugins have the same loading position (0)

Database    

    jDiction Database Driver is selected

Language    

    Seam to be good

Module    

    Module is enabled

Common mistakes    

    At least one menu item has the language set not to ALL.
    At least one content item has the language set not to ALL.
    At least one category has the language set not to ALL.
    At least one module has the language set not to ALL.


Is it safe to send the Engish csv to the Translators to have converted into 5 other language?

If you don't have a problem with menu translationn, then the plugin position is ok.

You could send the csv to a translator. But maybe you test the import so you know how to solve questions.

It doesn't seem to work. I get this error..
"1054 Unknown column 'articletext' in 'field list' SQL=UPDATE cirw6_content SET `title` = '' , `articletext` = '' , `introtext` = '' WHERE `id` = '2'"

Does anyone understand what it means?

Did you tried to overwrite the default language?

All I did was upload the csv file I had downloaded. It didn't make it far in the uploaded when that happens.

you have to select the target language, maybe there is a problem overwriting the native language. (it seams so)

What I had done,  a while back, was create all the pages and menu items for the different languages, so I could just add the translated text when I got it. Should I delete all those, and start with just the English pages?.

correct, you only have one language ("all") and translate it with jdiction. jdiction replaces the "default" language at database level with the translation.

Wow, yes. It says Import successfully done for 768 translations. I used the German settings. So I should be able to go ahead and send the csv to the tranlators and I can use this.
One more question. I have used a lot of tables within the articles. Will that be a problem?

< table > tags?

that will be a pain for the translators, because they will see plain html.

also you should remove all unneeded entries (duplicated language entries for example)

And you should try how it will looks like after use translated some articles.

I did think it will be a pain for the translator. If they translate a table tag, it will screw things up.

thats the problem with html, there is professional translation software that could use xliff and can handle html tags.
