Task Rocket 4 will be translation ready
I know I know, this is way overdue. Translation support arguably should have been there from day one, but way back when I first launched Task Rocket I was completely inexperienced when it came to anything involving localisation and alike. That combined with me not knowing if Task Rocket was even going to take off (excuse the pun) made it a no-show from the start.
But things have changed. Considerably. And seeing as Task Rocket is going through some major changes in version 4, I think it’s one of those now or never situations.
The past few days I’ve been going through the painstaking task of retrofitting the theme with the necessary translation strings. This took way longer than I expected, but I’m glad it’s done.
This means anyone who is inclined will be able to fire up PoEdit, open the taskrocket.pot file (which is in UK English located in the theme languages directory) and create a new translation in their native language.
If anyone does do this for their language and would like to share it with everyone else, please let me know and I’ll gladly include it with the theme (with full credit of course).
Now the theme is done, I’ll move onto doing the add-ons, which should be a much easier experience.
