Creating multi-language albums in Chameleon

Creating multi-lingual albums is pretty straightforward with Chameleon. Make sure you have Chameleon v4.10 at least (Settings / Chameleon / About).

1. Setup the album the usual way

2. Add comments

Add the comments (or descriptions of folders) and titles this way:

Default text - [en]English text[de]Deutsch text[it]Italian text

will result:

Default text - English text // on english page
Default text - Deutsch text // on deutsch page
Default text - Italian text // on italian page

or without using default:

[en]English text[de]Deutsch text[it]Italian text 

will result:

English text // on english page
Deutsch text // on deutsch page
Italian text // on italian page

3. Specify the languages to link

In the Settings / Chameleon / General / Languages to link box with the 2 letter language code:

Languages to Link: en,de,it

4. Select the language

Select one language e.g. “English [en]” you want to show from the language combo box and hit Make album.

5. Do Step 4. for the other languages.

It’s enough to make only “Changes”, for your images are already generated by JAlbum.

You can use any number of languages, and any available language.
