Multilingual management for questions (not the interface)

Post by FabriceT » Wed Jun 24, 2020 8:13 am

Hello

What is the right way to work to do Question management.

The purpose of this question is to make sure that every question in my FAQ is well translated.
(it is not me who does the translation)

example:
Question FR:Qu'est ce que PHPMYFAQ?
Answer FR: un super produit de Thorsten
Question EN: What is PHPMYFAQ.?
Answer EN : a super product from Thorsten


Version used 2.9.13

Kind regards
Thank you

Thorsten

Hi,

you can use DeepL for the translations, it's quite simple.

Hello
Thank you for your response.
I think we misunderstood each other. :?:
(it's a complex problem to explain)
I also use DeepL. (the translation of a question into another language is not the subject of my problem).

My problem is to make sure that each question is well translated.

if I can explain my problem in another way.
For a question in French, I must be sure that I have the same question but translated into English for example:
  • ID 100 = Ma question en Français
  • ID 101 = My question in English ( traduction of ID100)
  • ID 102 = une autre question en Français
  • ID 103 = encore une autre question en Français
In this case I do not have Question 102 and Question 103 in English.

in other words

As for the multi-language interface of phpMyFAQ.
Can questions be handled like the multi-language interface.


Kind regards
Fabrice

Hi,

ah, now I understand. Yes, you can do this:

- translate all categories in the multiple languages by using the translation matrix in the category admin panel
- open a FAQ e.g. in French
- translate it into e.g. English and change the language of the language dropdown
- save it

Then you can switch between the languages in the frontend really easy.
