German has joined the ranks of languages you can use with SYDI-Server. The file will be included in the next version of SYDI-Server. Until then it is available for download through the download page. Thanks to Jan Picard who has made the translation file.
So now we can translate the xml files generated by SYDI-Server to eight different languages. Though this is good if your organization doesn’t use English as its primary language it will mean that in order to keep the SYDI-Server package completely updated I will have to keep in touch with more people and involve more people each time I make a change. This is one of the reasons why there werenâ€™t any new features in the core sydi-server script in the 2.1 version.
This is not the way I want it to be, i.e. I see having more translations as a good thing, but still the rest of the project shouldnâ€™t have to suffer for it. Because of this I wonâ€™t cross mountains in order to get updated translation files for each language since it could delay future releases (more than necessary).
The way I plan to solve this is to create a new package for the translations file and just release those packages more often. That way I can update the English and Swedish files for each release of SYDI-Server and just point to the translation pack for the rest of them.
As always your thoughts are more than welcome, and thanks again to Jan Picard!
