Translate PHP Define files

What are PHP Define files?

PHP Define files are PHP files used as language files to localize PHP apps. Their file extension is .php.

WebTranslateIt is a software localization platform that can help localize PHP Define .php files.

PHP Define file example

  define("January", "January");
  # An instruction to translators.
  define("February", "February");
  define("March", "March");
  define("April", "April");
  define("May", "May");
  define("June", "June");
  define("July", "July");
  define("August", "August");
  define("September", "September");
  define("October", "October");
  define("November", "November");

  • Each string must end with a ;.
  • define can be spelt in lowercase or uppercase.
  • Strings can be single quoted or double quoted.
  • If a string is single quoted, single quotes must be escaped.
  • If a string is double quoted, double quotes must be escaped.
  • Instructions can be left to translators by including a line starting by #.
  • The PHP closing tag ?> is optional. If no PHP closing tag is present when importing a file WebTranslateIt will generate files without a closing tag.

  • Comments containing [MAXCHAR=xx] will set a max character limit to xx. Example: // [MAXCHAR=20]
