eZ Platform internationalization

With the introduction of the localization feature in eZ Platform 2.2, you can now contribute to an existing translation or create an entirely new translation, if need be. If you'd like to take part in this effort, consider signing up with Crowdin, a simple service that offers a very helpful in-context translation interface. Feel free to contribute to our efforts here: You can find documentation on and GitHub.

Big thanks to all contributors. The 2.2.0 i18n packages have been deployed. We have 10 languages above 50%:

  • French & Polish (100%)
  • Norwegian Bokmal (89%)
  • Spanish (71%)
  • German (65%)
  • Portuguese (63%)
  • Greek (60%)
  • Hungarian (60%)
  • English US (58%)
  • Italian (51%)
  • Russian (38%)

More translations are of course available, you can check them on the Crowdin project.

Note on Symfony 3.4.12

We have received a few messages where a Composer update brings your Symfony install to 3.4.12, causing small problems. One example results in an infinite login loop. You can read about that on Slack. The Symfony 3.4.12 version has been added to the 'conflict' section of 'package.json' for eZ Platform.
