    Hello,

    I'm wondering how can I translate WHM to my language while keeping English as default.

    What I need to accomplish is offering my resellers a translated WHM.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    There are a few ways - first you could download the theme and then rebuild it yourself
    (got some time ? )

    You could also buy some language packs or a theme controller

    like this one ...

    www.cpanelskindepot.com

    not sure if that is the best option...

    Unlike the cPanel interface, the WHM interface is not yet user-translatable. We hope to resolve this in version 12 (no ETA).

    Yes, typically those translations are performed by some other means (as WHM does not yet have a language system thus no language files). This can range from creating WHM skins to scripts that intercept WHM output to translate phrases from English.

    Access your WHM and first off all clone the WHM default english skin to another theme name.

    Access the dir /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/themes/NEWTHEMENAME - the file command is the menu: /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/themes/NEWTHEMENAME/command

    Thanks a lot but I was able to translate the top frame. side frame and some pages. But I couldn't find the new account creation form for example.

    Where can I find that?

    Thanks.

    As David stated earlier, the WHM interface in cPanel 11 is not fully translatable. Most of the interfaces are not available as a template that an end user can modify. Your only option for such pages is to design your own, then use one of our various APIs (http://www.cpanel.net/plugins/api2/index.html or http://www.cpanel.net/plugins/xmlapi/index.html ) to pass the information to WHM.

    A focus of cPanel 12 is to make all WHM interfaces available as templates for end user modification.
