Can Interspire Knowledge Manager be easily translated into various languages?

Yes, this product contains a language file that contains all the text used inside the application. All preset text in Interspire Knowledge Manager is stored in 2 files.


The front_language.ini file contains all the preset text for the public area of the website, while back_language.ini contains all the text for the control panel.

These files can be edited in any text editor. Here is an example. Just say you wanted to change "Most Popular Questions" to "Top Stories". You need to edit the public area file, so open up front_language.ini and search for Most Popular Questions. You will find a line like:

hpMostPopularQuestions = "Most Popular Questions"

In order to change it, you only need to edit the text within the quotes. So we might change it to: (Note: we leave the text before the = intact)

hpMostPopularQuestions = "Top Stories"

(Note: See how we leave the text before the = intact)

If you need to put a double quotation mark inside the text, you can not use a normal ", but instead can use the html entity equivalant: "


hpMostPopularQuestions = "Top "Rated" Stories"

would return:

Top "Rated" Stories

Once you have changed it, save and re-upload to your site.

In addition to these two files, the text for any emails sent from the system is stored separately. The files with this text (there are 2 for the public area and 2 for the control panel) are in the templates directory for the area you are looking at and have a name that starts with Email. (there is a . after email, files for the control panel have a lower case e).

If you have any trouble, send in a trouble ticket via the client area.
