9 Hybrid now supports its own .lang format for i18n'd IRC status messages.
10
11 This document is split into two parts, using message files, and creating
12 your own.

16 Using Provided or Pre-made Message Files
17
18 There are a number of message files provided with Hybrid 7. These can be
19 found in the source tree in messages/.
20
21 These files are NOT installed by default; run `make install' within the
22 messages directory to install them and they will automatically be used
23 unless the paths in defaults.h were not adhered to.
24
25 These message files can be used in ircd once they are installed. Try the
26 installed message file with /quote SET MSGLOCALE <locale> first. The
27 locale will be 'standard' for the plain messages that are Hybrid's
28 default.
29
30 If the desired message file works without any issues, it can be set to be
31 the default message file in the ircd.conf file. Refer to example.conf's
32 documentation on the message_locale setting.

36 Creating Your Own Messages
37
38 This process is a little more complicated. The easiest way to start
39 editing messages is to take ircd-standard.example.lang, make a copy,
40 and change whichever status lines you wish.
41
42 Once you have your customized message file ready, just copy it into the
43 same place as the rest of the messages, typically $PREFIX/messages.
44
45 If you think your .lang file deserves to be in the official distribution,
46 submit it to us at bugs@ircd-hybrid.org. It must be complete and as error-
47 free as you can make it since it is subject to public consumption. Providing
48 a translation will be a way that nearly anyone who knows multiple languages
49 to contribute to ircd, and get their name in the translation credits.
50
51 When making such a translation, you should base it off
52 ircd-standard.example.lang, which is a conversion of our base (English)
53 messages.tab into the .lang format. You should edit it from there into your
54 own language, and of course give credit to yourself and whoever else you
55 may have done the translation with. Then, send it off to us, and we'll see
56 what we can do.
