Meaning of i18n

Internationalization (sometimes shortened to "I18N, meaning "I - eighteen letters - N") is the process of planning and implementing products and services so that they can easily be adapted to specific local languages and cultures, a process called localization (sometimes shortened to "l10n", meaning "l - ten letters - n"); this last is the process of adapting a product or service to a particular language, culture, and desired local "look-and-feel".


The static content

The website's i18n is done by editing locale files in app/locale. If you can´t figure out how it is done, just follow this simple procedure:

  1. Fork the CodeCombat repository.
  2. Look at app/locale/ to find the language code you want to translate into, like "fr".
  3. Open the file in app/locale, like "".
  4. Click edit, make your changes, and submit a pull request.

There is only one difference that you need to be aware of when editing If you edit a line, you will have to append it with # {change} so that the translation manager realises that you have made a change and can alert the diplomats so that they can transfer the change to other languages.

The dynamic content

To i18n the content of the game itself, just go to i18n, choose your language, and start translating. For an example of how to translate in-game help articles, see this forum thread.
