Latin for article language

Hello there,

we have an article written in latin. Yes, the classical language.
Of course latin isn’t a language which is provided by OJS, so what is the best way to label the article language? Is it possible to fake the language package?

Kind regards
Daniela

Hi @UBWolf,

Hmm, I’d like to have a better solution to this, but in the meantime you should be able to fake a Latin language:

  • Add an entry to registry/locales.xml, assigning a code e.g. la_IT off the top of my head :slight_smile:
  • Create a locale/la_IT/locale.po so that it’s parseable as a .po file, even if it’s not translated
  • Install the Default Translation plugin, so that English is used when Latin text isn’t available for the user interface.

Hi @UBWolf,

This also came up recently in the forum and in a Github issue: https://github.com/pkp/pkp-lib/issues/5000#issuecomment-672720745
