[PrestaShop][EN] Describing more detail in structure of PrestaShop for people who want to write PrestaShop in Multilanguage Part 2

The latest blog, you have known about structure in PrestaShop for using Multilanguage or dynamic language after that I will explain more information in this structure that how the structure is. For understanding before you customize the PrestaShop by yourself

admin.php File from folder translations

$_LANGADM[‘AdminCartRulesd3b206d196cd6be3a2764c1fb90b200f’]=’Delete selected’;

$_LANGADM is a variable called Array

‘AdminCartRulesd3b206d196cd6be3a2764c1fb90b200f’ is the key of the Array it is a part of module and md5 string

d3b206d196cd6be3a2764c1fb90b200f isMD5of string such asDelete selected= d3b206d196cd6be3a2764c1fb90b200f

‘Delete selected’; is value of the word or statement from Array

If you change the word from ‘Delete selected’ to ‘selected to delete’, the word on the screen display will be changed. Absolutely, if you want to translate other language you can do this.

For example: changing the language

$_LANGADM[‘AdminCartRulesd3b206d196cd6be3a2764c1fb90b200f’] = ‘ Sil seçili ‘; // turkish

P.S. It is more important, when you change value of key of the Array, you must not change md5 key that the key is ‘Delete selected’ encrypted.

On next paragraph, I will explain more detail for key md5 (read more ***)

a template file from modules, in this case, I choose blockuserinfo module. when you open folder blockuserinfo on ‘\modules\blockuserinfo’ you will look .tpl file at that folder, surely, filename .tpl is a PHP Smarty template that is on views folder or outside that folder.

For example:PHP Smarty Template

<p id=”header_user_info”>

{l s=’Welcome’ mod=’blockuserinfo’}

<a href=”{$link->getPageLink(‘my-account’,true)|escape:’html’}”title=”{l s=’View my customer account’ mod=’blockuserinfo’}”class=”account” rel=”nofollow”><span>{$cookie->customer_firstname}{$cookie->customer_lastname}</span></a>

<a href=”{$link->getPageLink(‘index’,true,NULL,”mylogout”)|escape:’html’}”title=”{l s=’Log me out’ mod=’blockuserinfo’}”class=”logout” rel=”nofollow”>{l s=’Sign out’ mod=’blockuserinfo’}</a>

<a href=”{$link->getPageLink(‘my-account’,true)|escape:’html’}”title=”{l s=’Log in to your customer account’ mod=’blockuserinfo’}”class=”login” rel=”nofollow”>{l s=’Sign in’ mod=’blockuserinfo’}</a>

In the structure .tpl, the file that contains tag for display Multilanguage on screen as follows;

{l s=’Welcome’ mod=’blockuserinfo’}

{l s=’View my customer account’ mod=’blockuserinfo’}

{l s=’Log me out’ mod=’blockuserinfo’}

{l s=’Log in to your customer account’ mod=’blockuserinfo’}

{l s=’Sign in’ mod=’blockuserinfo’}

{} is a tag for display from PHP smarty

s is a string or sentence

Normally, writing tag in smarty template I will always write in an English for standardization, so it’s meaning I have never written en.php file. Even though, some module write tag smarty not standardization I need to write en.php file too.

Be careful, writing “ l s=’String key’ from native language you must encrypt md5 from that language.

Next session, I will explain a relation of translations and module with .tpl and .php
