New non-English installs

(Neil Lalonde) #1

Some strings get seeded into the database when a new site is bootstrapped:

  • Category names (meta, staff, lounge)
  • Legal docs (terms of service, faq, privacy policy)

We need a way to provide a locale argument during bootstrap, which would cause a row to be inserted into the site_settings table to set the default_locale before seed data is created. Or maybe there’s another solution.

Translations for v1.0
Initial locale setting now available

Add a button to the site settings locale selector that allows admins to re-seed the database with the translated default strings?

That might be safe if you are only overwriting the original unmodified English versions (because you could always go back to the install defaults).

Don’t forget the category definition posts.

I am pretty sure those are not counted, we usually account for those.
