hi,

  as I could not post at developer  forums yet. I have to post here. I have translates some js to Chinese. and while I rebuild
them, throw a error.

  here is the error message. btw,all the file and database have been UTF-8.

   how to fix this? thanks.
Alex,

Seems like a unicode error in minify.py (which is a 3rd party utility to compress js files). We will have to look into it.

On another note, we have already done some work on this in the "dev" branch. The solution to translation is to create a generic "layer" so that the visible elements / messages can be translated in any language.

If you are keen to developing, I urge you to look at what we have already tried:


The trick is to extract all messages from the code and database and put them in a file. We have also made a system to directly translate all those messages using Google Translate API. Finally the messages have to be update before they are shown in the views.
