Summary

Summary Whew! I don't know about you, but I'm tired. We did a lot in this chapter, so give yourself a pat on the back that you've made it this far. Let's do a quick review of all the good stuff we learned. After we created our test website, we worked with languages. We added several new languages and then configured the detection settings to handle different URLs per language based on the language's path prefix. Then, we added a handy block for switching between each language with ease. Once the languages were in place, we moved on to Drupal interface translation. We got translation files directly from localize.drupal.org and imported them into our site. To make the job easier, we installed the Localization Update module to get the translation files for us automatically. We then learned that, unfortunately, not all the UI text has been translated. So we added our own string translations that can be shared back with the community. This process was simplified with the Localization Client module. For the last part of the UI translation section, we learned different methods for translating English strings and how to export our string translations for use on other Drupal websites. We finished the chapter with a grab bag of configuration settings. We updated the default country and time zone in the regional settings and the date/time formats for each language. In the end, we translated a couple of site variables including the site name and updated the contact form settings for our languages. Now let's move on to translating our content!
