Dear MATsxm, Welcome to Joomla! Documentation!

Yes, welcome! This site is dedicated to documenting Joomla!, the CMS software behind many websites!

You have now been added to documentation as a translator! If you check the page Documentation Translators, you should see your username. Please, take a look at the following pages. They might prove useful to you as a new translator here:

Translators have many channels for help with translating on Joomla! Documentation. Please join one or both.

  1. We have a Mattermost channel for translators. Ask questions, get answers, and have fun. Send a contact request to Max123kl, Ceford or MartijnM. Login to Mattermost with your Joomla identity account and let us know your name, specifying that you're a JDOC translator, and we can add you directly to the channel.
  2. Post on a talk page. Either the translation administrator who sent you this welcome or another translator of your language on the Documentation Translators page.

If you have any other questions, please ask me on my talk page. Alternatively, you can go to my user page and click the "gear" icon in the top right and send a private email to me. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here.

Thanks, and regards, MATsxm (talk) 09:13, 25 November 2014 (CST)

Change text direction from LTR to RTL ?[edit]

Hi dear MATsxm
my language direction is RTL. But when I translate Joomla documentation , the text will be displayed from left to right. What should I do?


Hi Are you sure you are using the translate feature???? It seems you changed the Core text (original) in the sandbox page. This is NOT the way to translate.

to translate a page you must NEVER change the original text (except if you have to make changes but only in en'GB) then click on "Translate the page" (must be written in you language) then you will have a specific page for translation.

Let me know if you need more help Regards, MAT

The problem remains[edit]

As you said i clicked on " Translate this page " and translate 2 paragraphs but The text is still left to right
image attached



would you mind contact me on Skype (matsxm) please. Will be easier ;)


Hi MATsxm (or other active admin)

Today I go an email pointing me to Category_talk:Top_Level which I happened to have edited long ago. I removed most of the page for being spam content. Perhaps it's wise to stop Robinsmith and Ajayrudelee from further spamming (and undo their changes). Arent (talk) 08:54, 3 May 2016 (CDT)

WOW! Thank you for the ping...
Strange I wasn't aware of it.
Thanks anyway ;)
