Use of languages (Internationalization)

QS-Manager supports both the interface translation and the messages translation.

  • Interface translation : Every strings of QS-Manager can be translated into an alternative language. This is very easy and described below.
  • Messages translation : Messages, news or menu comments displayed into QS-Manager support lanaguage translation. Therefore, the administrators can write messages that will be displayed according to the user selected language.


Messages Translation

Translation is handled through languages tags. Languages tags are made of the language names surrounded by double braces such as Template:English for English text or Template:French for French text.

Here is below an example of translated text:

{{English}}We have recently installed QSims on our server.
Please accept our apologizes for unavailability without notice due to our current tests.
Thanks for your kind comprehension.
We hope to meet you soon in our metavers.
{{French}}Nous venons d'installer Q-Sims sur notre serveur.
