I have just launched an update to ThinkTwit which brings to us a new feature that I have wanted to add for quite some time. Thanks to a kind offer from Maria Ramos at WebHostingHub.com I have finally been able to add this feature. Here’s a brief summary of the changes:
- Fixed an issue preventing hashtags from working properly
- Added i18n internationalisation support
- Translated in to Spanish, the first language (other than English) to be supported by ThinkTwit
You may be able to guess that the aforementioned feature is the internationalisation support – this came after Maria got in touch and offered to translate. Whilst this was something I’ve been wanting to do for a while I never had any real incentive as I couldn’t do the translation myself and didn’t know anybody who was interested in translating, so Maria has my appreciation for giving me a nudge.
Finding out how to do the translating itself was a little more complicated than I expected so I may at some point write a blog on this; if anyone is really interested in this then please do let me know.
