Adding Language Compatibility

The mod provides text variables for five non-English languages (Dutch, French, German, Norwegian and Spanish). To add text variables for other languages you need to modify the definitions in the following English version for the language(s) you require:

// Added by Family Chart Help mod
$text['fch1'] = "Click";
$text['fch2'] = "to show the Family for the person, ";
$text['fch3'] = "or ";
$text['fch4'] = " to show the Parents. ";
$text['fch5'] = "If ";
$text['fch6'] = ", click to select other spouses. ";
$text['fch7'] = ", the person is living, click to login for details.";
$text['fch8'] = ", click to select other family. ";

The following alternative to the German translation supplied in the mod file has been provided by Hendrik Martius:

// Added by Family Chart Help mod
$text['fch1'] = "Klick auf ";
$text['fch2'] = "zeigt Familie der Person an. ";
$text['fch3'] = "Klick auf ";
$text['fch4'] = " zeigt Eltern an. ";
$text['fch5'] = "Klick auf ";
$text['fch6'] = " zeigt die Familie mit einem anderen Partner an. ";
$text['fch7'] = " wechselt zur Anmeldung (lebende Person). ";
$text['fch8'] = " wählt eine andere Familie. ";

In the event of a problem with your TNG site
