French translation

Posted on 21 November 2013
Hi, i want to know how to translate words in frontend, because i saw in your language documentation that we need to put name of language (ex: fr) parameters to fr.js instead of en.js, but i tried to see content of en.js and i found that this file don't contain all the words that i want to translate, for exemple "members", "guests" etc.

I hope you help me or give me the optimal way to do transtaltion to the frontend interface of your awesome component !

Thanx in advance.
Owner's reply: All the words available for translation are listed on our website under Support/Configuration/languages section.

The "members" or "guests" are group names and those can be adjusted in the groups.js file (detailed explanation in the Support/Configuration/groups.js), specifically the "" parameter.
