FonB v1.0.5: Welcome to Localization

Leave a Comment
Nowadays, most softwares are released in English as it is considered the international standard language. Internationalization is defined as interoperability between environments with multiple ethnicities. That is why English holds the record for the most common usage in almost every software application, however, this is not necessarily applicable inenvironments where everybody speaks the same local language. In such cases it becomes a matter of convenience. Many localities prefer to read, write and work in their local languages as It’s smoother, quicker and easier to communicate in your own language instead of translating a sentence in your mind to English and then deliver it.

This issue became the highlight of our concernwhen a vast number of our users (especially in China, Russia, France and Italy) started sending emails requesting us to implement localization in FonB. An interesting example in this case is Chinese Language. We’ve received several requests to translate FonB in Traditional & Simplified Chinese - Two languages from the same country.

And that’s why we came up with Localization in Aptus FonB. The publish of our latest release v1.0.5 made it possible to apply localization in your FonB.

The following languages have already been integrated in this Release:

  • Russian.
  • Traditional Chinese.
  • German.
  • Italian.
  • French.
  • Portuguese.
  • Urdu.
  • Arabic.
  • Persian.

Our solution is partially open, as we haven’t put any restriction on our front end. You can play with it the way you like. We will be discussing this openness in details in our future blogs, as for now, I’m glad to announce that you can apply the language of your desire in FonB. There are no restrictions as you can use any language. All you need to do is to translate this template into your own language and follow the instructions here. Not only this, if you wish to share your contribution in the development of FonB language support, just email your version of translated template here and we will evaluate it and then integrate it in our next release.
