Add your translation engine here in a heartbeat.
Including the plugin is pretty much as with every other CakePHP plugin:
composer require dereuromark/cakephp-translate
Then, to load the plugin run the following command:
bin/cake plugin load Translate -b -r # If you haven't loaded the Tools plugin already bin/cake plugin load Tools -b -r
Routes are needed for the backed, the bootstrap sets up a few defaults.
Run this in console to create the necessary DB tables:
bin/cake migrations migrate -p Translate
dereuromark/cakephp-queue for larger projects to avoid timeout issues when importing PO files.
- Navigate to
/admin/translate/in your browser.
- Use TinyAuth or alike to manage access to the translation backend for user groups.
- Implement your own Translation engine if you want to have even better auto-suggest.
