There are 3 different places for translations of the IBSI Website.

  1. Pages and content elements: You can translate all page titles and all content elements in the backend of the TYPO3 system. Some content elements are plug-ins, which showing special views like the bible questions, events or course manager. All the plugins have language files for their text elements. The content, which shows by the plug-ins, is stored in the different system pages. All the records can be also translated in the backend. Using the list module for record editing.
  2. The text elements of the plug-ins can be translated with the ExtLangEditor on our HOPE Channel Support website.
  3. All texts and images, which are part of the global layout, like header or footer, stored in the TypoScript template. Please have a look at the list below and send us the translation.
