• Hello Fabrik Community

    Fabrik is now in the hands of the development team that brought you Fabrik for Joomla 4. We have recently transitioned the Fabrik site over to a new server and are busy trying to clean it up. We have upgraded the site to Joomla 4 and are running the latest version of Fabrik 4. We have also upgraded the Xenforo forum software to the latest version. Many of the widgets you might have been used to on the forum are no longer operational, many abandoned by the developers. We hope to bring back some of the important ones as we have time.

    Exciting times to be sure.

    The Fabrik 4.0 Official release is now available. In addition, the Fabrik codebase is now available in a public repository. See the notices about these in the announcements section

    We wish to shout out a very big Thank You to all of you who have made donations. They have really helped. But we can always use more...wink..wink..

    Also a big Thank You to those of you who have been assisting others in the forum. This takes a very big burden off of us as we work on bugs, the website and the future of Fabrik.

    Below you can find information about how to manually add translations for Fabrik language strings.
    If you want to use custom language strings use Joomla's language override feature.

    Location​

    Fabrik language files are located in
    • administrator\components\com_fabrik\language\xx-XX
      • xx-XX.com_fabrik.ini
      • xx-XX.com_fabrik.menu.ini
      • xx-XX.com_fabrik.sys.ini
    • components\com_fabrik\language\xx-XX
      • xx-XX.com_fabrik.ini
    • plugins\fabrik_aaa\pluginname\language\xx-XX
      • xx-XX.plg_fabrik_aaa_pluginname.ini
      • xx-XX.plg_fabrik_aaa_pluginname.sys.ini

    Default language​

    As long as a language file for the site's selected default language doesn't exist, the English language file is taken.

    If it exists but doesn't contain all translations you'll see strings like:
    PLG_ELEMENT_CHECKBOX_SAVE_NEW_ADDITIONS_LABEL​
    or
    COM_FABRIK_SORRY_THIS_VISUALIZATION_IS_UNPUBLISHED​

    How to create language files​

    All language files need to be saved as UTF-8, no BOM.

    Every language file must be created in 'parallel' to the location of the English one so, for example, the translation of:
    ..\administrator\components\com_fabrik\language\en-GB\en-GB.com_fabrik.ini​
    must be in the location:
    ..\administrator\components\com_fabrik\language\xx-XX\xx-XX.com_fabrik.ini​
    where xx-XX is your language code (e.g. de-DE = German, fr-FR = French, el-GR = Greek).

    So for each 'language' folder:
    • copy the folder "en-GB" to "xx-XX"
    • in the folder xx-XX rename all files en-GB to xx-XX...
    • start translating
    It is not necessary to translate all language files at once. The most important one for frontend users is :
    components\com_fabrik\language\xx-XX\xx-XX.com_fabrik.ini

    At the moment these languages are (partly) supported:

    da-DK, de-DE, el-GR, en-GB, es-ES, fr-FR, it-IT, ja-JP, nl-NL, pt-BR, ru-RU​

    Publishing​

    Last but not least, please send you translation to the fabrik team. Best is to submit a PR to Github.
