Feature request multilingual: Language list should show national names

Post by frineu » Thu Sep 12, 2019 9:41 pm

The language list should use the national language name by default.

Deutsch NOT German
Dansk NOT Danish
Español NOT Spanish
Français NOT French
Suomalainen NOT Finnish
čeština NOT Czech
Slovenský NOT Slovak
Nederlands NOT Dutch
Íslensku NOT Icelandic
Türk NOT Turkish
中文 NOT Traditional Chinese

should i continue?

That one is simple and you can change it for yourself. Just edit the language list in serendipity_config.inc.php , that is where the language names come from. I did that ages ago.

serendipity_config.inc.php will be overwritten by update :(

@frineu: Can you give me the list? The serendipity_config.inc.php file is encoded in UTF-8, so that is a simple fix and I fixed the issue that this list was at two places conflicting with each other.

Edit … Google helped. Problem just with Korean and Tamil which isn't displayed properly and I don't know if that is because I don't have the eastern language package in windows installed or an encoding problem.

Sorry for the delay.
According to google translate:
Tamil is தமிழ்
Korean is 한국의

Do you need more language translations? Right now, i don't have more translations than the ones listed above.

I found a page with all the names and put it into a Pull request. The request is open but I think it is going to be integrated in version 2.4 .
