We have just purchased our first language pack, WOOOO!
But I've found the documentation on this to be sorely lacking. Here is what I have found:
So, here are my questions:
I've got 8 languages at moment so I'll try to share what helped BUT disclaimer, there is a lot i don't know, and most likely don't have setup correctly 😞
In general, what's the recommended process for launching a new language?
Once I have a language pack on production, will it automatically be used if the user selects that language in their profile? Or can I enable / disable?
What is used to determine the user's interface language? Is it just based on the language set for that category? Or does the user get any say about it based on the language set in their browser?
What is used to determine the language in which platform emails are sent
What other questions do I not even know to ask?
Personally i wish I had more knowledge in this area - languages are hard 😞
I hope this helps!
Thank you, @tyw! All of this info is much appreciated!
One of my concerns is that Japanese is now enabled on staging, and I don't want to push it to prod until we have had a chance to test it thoroughly and adjust the translations - which will take a long time (especially given time zones). I don't want to block pushing to production during that whole time (since it doesn't seem to be disable-able once it's there on prod?). How have you dealt with this in the past?
@tyw@CarolineSWould one of you be willing to have a one off conversation on this? We'd like to understand it further and it would greatly benefit us seeing a working version of this on the backend/configuration wise. Please let me know if you're open to this!
