(btw. it's really not easy to participate here, as the menue is just avaliable in Finish, normaly there are certain mods and language sets, which could be installed and given as a possibility of choice on the mainpage. What brings me to think if I had made finish avaliable... inattentive,inattentive, not very obliging... )

*assuming which botton might be "post" Lähetä?*

We haven't had that many English speakers here so far. Perhaps we should expand the scope of this forum, I dunno.

Dear Santeri,

I guess it is due to my intensive experiance with forums, that I am able to use even to create an account or to log in (looking on the linked actionm which would be caused, by pushing a certain button). Somebody who does not know forums a little better, is helpless lost with Finnish language. So totally no wonder why nobody registers.

Not sure how and how good such works on php-Forums, but I allowed my self to look for a maybe related site:

https://www.phpbb.com/languages/?sid=39 ... adabe0bcba

I am guess Finnish people are similar "lazy" like Germans or other Middle and North-European people and have such "we are we" thinking. Maybe it helps a little to overcome such national attidude. I also guess, since Finnish is not so wide spread, the general english knowledge is for sure better as in German language countries.

Nothing lost with it. Give it a try.

English language pack is now installed.

If you are registered and logged in, you can change your language from personal settings here:
http://www.avoinsangha.fi/keskustelu/ucp.php?i=prefs

If you are not logged in, you can change to English using this link:
http://www.avoinsangha.fi/keskustelu/ucp.php?quick_language=en
And back to Finnish with this link:
http://www.avoinsangha.fi/keskustelu/ucp.php?quick_language=fi

Still probably needs some tweaking. It would be nice to have a link at the top somewhere where you could easily change the language.

Great! Congratulations!

Although still difficult for those who are used to be served and consumer... (they would not search possibilities, especially English speaking people, they are used to be served)

Maybe its useful to say that it is found in a area that is called "Omat asetukset" and there is the possibility (drop down menu) of "Käytettävä kieli:" where you need to chose "Britisch Englisch" where "Suomi" (never heard about this) is displayed.

This seems as if it does not work. Maybe only if one is not logged in.

As for the link, you maybe have the possibility to display news in the header in the Admin-Section. That would be the most easy way. I am sure there is also a modification package available at the php forums for a quick menu in the header.

Discussions about it are linked and found here:

That is already installed and it seems to be working, at least you can change the language using the previously mentioned links when you're not logged in. Still need to add the language change links to our template, just haven't gotten around to it yet.
