Calling Translators/Localizers

For those of you who are unaware, WP-Slimbox2 has had Localization support since v0.9.4, and support for RTL Localization since v0.9.5.

Unfortunately, what I do not have are localizations, Spanish/Español aside.

So I’m putting out the word, on my mostly unread blog, requesting people to provide translations! It uses the standard POT file method, the same as WordPress, so just load up the POT file included in the languages sub-directory of the plugin package in your PO editor of your choice (such as POedit) and get to work. You’ll also need to create image files for the Next, Prev, and Close displays. Look at the default English files, as well as the Spanish files, if you want examples.

I’d really like to be able to serve as many people as possible with the plugin, but I can only read and write English and don’t see myself becoming a linguist any time soon.

If you’d like to contribute, please leave a comment here, as well as on our support forums where I’ll set up a special localization thread a bit later.

    I fixed up a rudimentary german translation and even found some images to use, but I don’t remember where. I’m pretty sure they are free.
    Drop me a line and I’ll send you the package.

    Nice plugin. I was using wp-lytebox but this one look nice and still maintained. I use it with cleaner galery.
    I began the french translation, are you interrested in it ? If yes, feel free to send me an email so I can send you the translation.
