Language settings at member or group level

Post by cycloshost »


currently the language applies to a whole Cyclos instance. Is it planned to have more flexibility on this? Actually lots of languages are available but only one can be used. We were thinking that maybe the language could be a member attribute defined by the user in the profile or at least assigned by the admin to a group if that is easier.

Of course having several languages available would mean to have the posibility of translating in the available languages, currently the "Translation" section allows only one.

We are working in a project that integrates immigrant people which somehow do not master the local language enough to feel confortable using an online banking system. Also this is a must for projects that want to grow internationally.

The language is indeed system wide. It would be technically not so difficult to have group or user defined languages based on the application properties. But the translation in the database (account names, transaction type names, ads categories etc) would still be system wide. Because of this we did not implement it. In Cyclos4 it will be possible to define languages per group.
