Why and how to translate the Ionize interface ?

Ionize is build with multi-language in mind.

Because the Ionize team has a multi cultural approach, we think that each user should have the administration panel in its own language.

All the translation files used by the Ionize UI are located in the folder :

Modules translation files are in each "language" folder of each module :

...where "xxx" is the international language code, on 2 chars (based on ISO 639-1 codes)

Adding one language code folder with the ionize_lang.php translation file will add the corresponding language icon in the admin panel.
If the language icon isn't added, you can add your own icon in the folder :

Each file must be saved in UTF8 :
On PC : This can be done by using EditPlus or such a text editing, and choose UTF-8 as file format
On Mac : You can use Coda or any other advanced text editor.

Will my translation file added to the next version ?
Of course it will !
You also will appear on the contributors page of the Ionize website !
