How to provide a fallback or mapping for translation messages?

Created 6 years ago by schmunk, updated 4 years ago by schmunk.

Sometimes you want to use exisiting translations for locales, which do not directly match. An example would be a website targeting Germany (de_de), Austria (de_at) and Switzerland (de_ch, fr_ch, it_ch). Although you may have exisiting translations for German (de), French (fr) and Italian (it), there are problems using it directly.

Custom Number Formatting or Decimal Separators and i18n

Created 6 years ago by c@cba, updated 6 years ago by c@cba.

By default, the decimal separator in php (also in mysql) is a dot (.). So when we work with floats in Yii (in calculations, validation, sql statements etc.), the decimal separator has to be a dot. If we want to use for example a comma (,) as the decimal separator, that is if we want to display numbers and enable users to enter numbers with a comma before the decimals, we have to...

How to extend CFormatter, add i18n support to booleanFormat and use it in CDetailView

Created 7 years ago by c@cba, updated 7 years ago by c@cba.

As you know, the CDetailView widget displays details of a single model. If no formatting is specified, boolean values that are stored in the database as 0 and 1, are represented in the detail view as 0 and 1. If formatted as boolean, they are represented as 'No' and 'Yes'. We want to add i18n support, so that Yes and No appear in the current language.

How to obtain a grammatically correct translation of the model name in giix-generated view files

Created 7 years ago by c@cba, updated 7 years ago by c@cba.

The giix code generator has out of the box i18n support for model names and attribute labels (besides other cool features > check it out!) .
But I want to factor in not only the plural form, but also the grammatical cases (especially the accusative) while translating 'Manage Objects', 'Create Object', 'Edit Object' etc.

Created 7 years ago by c@cba, updated 7 years ago by c@cba.
