Is there a way to have product listing in different languages and display each listing depending on the language selected by the user? For example, I have 100 products and I want to display them in 20 different languages, but I only want to display the 100 product list only in the correct (automatically selected) language. If I put in the product description all languages, then the product listing will look a mess, while, at the same time, the product name is infeasible to be in more than one languages.
Ideally, I would want the shop/cart language in the front-end to be the one selected by the site visitor when entering the site. The site may be constructed, for example, as suggested in: http://forum.phpwcms.org/viewtopic.php?p=83791. But how the shop/cart can follow the language selection?
Can anyone suggest a solution to support such functionality?
or a lot of redundant data (because of setup each article 20 times by 20 languages)
a HACK solution could be to write all text as Listitems to split them in arrays, something like that:
Product: Produkt #1|Product #1|Productname in french|...
same for all text - then you split the list in arrays and choose the right one depending on language switch.
But that all is really a messy solution.
it's better to rewrite the code completly to fit your needs (with own fields for each language).
no instant solution
...But I can't see how the shop module could accommodate the needs of a multilingual site...
It's like the integrated forum which phalancs is just going to reanimate - good for some hundred users perhaps, but for a forum like this one really too small (really? hrmm, some doubts arising, possibly could be sufficient too, or not?)
hope that helps...
That's true, and also for most (if not all) clones, especially when it comes to adapting the design... templates, ha!oscommerce is a mess
I started with interchange - bought out by redhat as far as I can remember, and did some work with some os-clone (don't want to remember), worked with merchantorderform (nice one, easy to adapt) years ago, but until now didn't get hold of any convincing one...
I hope you are right, but in fact this uses lots of Zent and other frameworks, I would not be shure it does so... perhaps there will be special account Servers for this very improving software... *just thinking about offering one of mine *Nik2004 wrote:Otherwise, I believe it could run on a shared host successfully...
