Translation not complete on Drupal 8 release day? No problem!

Localize.drupal.org news -

First, I'd like to congratulate all teams who worked hard to get to significant completeness of Drupal 8 translations, lead by the Ukrainian and Hungarian teams who are 100% complete and the Spanish team which is close to complete too. The French, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Japanese and Romanian teams were also hard at work and are all over 70% translated. When you are installing Drupal, there is no special task to do to install in any of the supported languages, just select that on the first screen. The translations ready at that time will be downloaded and used.

Is it a problem at all though if a translation is not complete yet when you install? I don't think so. With prior Drupal core releases, there was a huge significance of complete translations at release time because whatever people used to install Drupal was used to create all their default configuration. Content types, fields, menus, input formats and so on. Even though we have the very handy Localization update module for Drupal 6 and 7, it could not help update configuration that was already created.

In Drupal 8 we solved that problem by applying built-in translation updates to the shipped configuration as well, so if your translation does not have complete coverage yet for the shipped views, fields, contact forms, tours, etc. those will be updated later on seamlessly. Drupal also of course supports making local changes to those which would not be overwritten later with translation updates. To take advantage of this feature (which is not enabled by default), either run a manual update at Administration > Reports > Available translation updates or turn on automated updates with cron at Administration > Configuration > Regional and language > User interface translation and sit back and enjoy your Drupal 8 continually improving with translation fixes automatically.

Drupal 8 RC3 is out now (and RC4 will be out tomorrow)! There is also only a week to go to the release of Drupal 8.0.0 itself. Only three types of changes are possible now: some of the critical issues, some of the rc target and some rc eligible issues, but as you can expect, things are tightening very much at this point. Of course the rest of the issues are also valuable once Drupal 8.0.0 is out, so don't despair!

Drupal 8 multilingual tidbits 18: core content translation workflow

Gábor Hojtsy on D8MI -

Up to date as of November 10th, 2015.

In the previous tidbit, we covered content translation basics. In short now you can configure translatability on any subtype of any entity type, so for example articles or specific taxonomy vocabularies may be configured to have all their entities support translation. Then each entity structure may be configured on the field and in some cases subfield level to support translation. The question is how does it all work then, what do we do to translate content?

Relative times between Europe and US are the same again. So the meeting should be back at the same time for people in the US. It is still at 6pm for people in most of Europe.

Drupal 8 RC3 is out now! There is also only a bit more than two weeks to go to the release of Drupal 8.0.0 itself. Only three types of changes are possible now: some of the critical issues, some of the rc target and some rc eligible issues, but as you can expect, things are tightening very much at this point.

Note that this meeting is one hour later in UTC but the same time (6pm) in Central Europe due to winter time adjustments. The United States for example changes to winter time later therefore the meeting will be one hour later for those in the US this week.
