SAKAI 3 i18n AND l10n NEEDS

In this document we will try to create a list of thing to think about i18n and l10n.

There are a lot of JIRA issues opened that I attach at the end of this page, but we are going to create first a list with most important things to have in mind when thinking Sakai 3 architecture.

  • Obviously the six i18n basic requeriments must be implemented with special interest in 1,2 and 4

1) Ability to type international (unicode) characters into any Sakai tool
2) Ability for any tool interface to dynamically reflect a user's preferred international locale --> 100% of strings, buttons, etc.

3) Ability to create worksites whose page titles will statically reflect to a defined international locale(If 4 is implementes, 3 seems not to be very important)

4) Ability to create worksites whose page titles will dynamically reflect a user's preferred international locale (VERY, VERY, VERY IMPORTANT)
Let the tools change name when change language preference. It's not very dificult with default names but it must store each personalized name in each language too.

5) Ability to create worksites whose page titles and tool interface will statically reflect a site's preferred international locale (Very useful for language courses)

6) Ability to support right-to-left languages

  •  Ability to have more than one version of the same content. Each content web page, file, assignement, assessment, etc, etc. should have a default version and the ability of traslated versions (and a way of mantain all of then easily, of course)
  •  Use the same (and localized) way to display dates and numbers in Sakai.
