Adding Or Changing A Language

Adding or modifying languages with SnippetMaster is very easy.

Note: If you create a new language translation file, please be sure to send a copy to henri@snippetmaster.com and I will add the file to the download area so that others may use it. I'll also give you a free license as a thank-you!

At this time, only SnippetMater PRO has the ability to use language files. The text displayed with SnippetMaster LITE can not be modified.

Modifying an existing language

  1. Change into the /languages folder. You will see a list of all existing language files.
  2. Open the language file you want to modify with your favorite text editor and make any desired changes.

    NOTE: Your translation file MUST contain only valid PHP code. (ie: each variable must have open & closing quotes, etc.)
  3. Save the new translation file and then upload it into the /languages folder on your server.


Adding a new language file

  1. Change into the /languages folder. You will see a list of all existing language files.
  2. Copy an existing translation file (I recommend using the English.php file, since that's the one I maintain and therefore I know it is 100% accurate) and rename the new file.

    NOTE 1: Your new translation file MUST end with a .php extension: (ie: newlang.php)

    NOTE 2: File names are case-sensitive. (english.php is different then English.php)

    NOTE 3:
    The name you use for the new translation file will be displayed in the drop-down selection box on the login page. For example, if you call your new translation file "german.php" then the drop-down selection box on the login page will have an entry called "german".
  3. Edit the new translation file with your favorite text editor and make any desired changes.

    NOTE: Your translation file MUST contain only valid PHP code. (ie: each variable must have open & closing quotes, etc.)
  4. Save the new translation file and upload it into the /languages folder on your server.

Note: If you create a new language translation file, please be sure to send a copy to henri@snippetmaster.com and I will give you credit and add the file to the program so that others may use it. I'll also give you a free license as a thank-you!
