To translate php-residence to another language duplicate the directory
/includes/lang/en renaming it to the acronym of the new language
(maximum 3 letters). After that change the full name of the language in
the file l_n inside that directory.

Now you should be able to choose the new language when installing or
from "Configure and customize", but naturally it will still display
messages in english. To change them you must edit all files in the new
language directory changing the phrases in english between quotation
marks (right column) with their translations. Remember that you must
always use \" instead of " and \$ instead of $. See comments in the
files for special cases. As you change phrases in the files you can see
how they change also in the corresponding pages in the browser.

The files are encoded with unicode utf-8, so you shold use a text
editor that supports this encoding. For example in Linux you can use
Kate that supports saving in utf-8 even if that's not set as your
default locale.

If you make a translation in your own language feel free to send it to
me at so i can put it on php-residence site for
