I installed i18n with variables translation, updated my settings.php file according to this post. Cleared cache ofc. But on page admin/config/user-interface/lightbox2 in text settings, there is nothing about variables being multilingual. They show just one version in all languages.

Also, on page admin/config/regional/i18n/variable, there are no lightbox2 variables. (not sure if they should be here, perhaps yes)

I don't have an idea where to look further.

I experienced the same Problem with lightbox2-6.x-1.x-dev.
That is if you mean the variables lightbox2_node_link_text (default 'View Image Details'), lightbox2_image_count_str ('Image !current of !total'), lightbox2_video_count_str ('Video !current of !total'), lightbox2_page_count_str ('Page !current of !total') and lightbox2_download_link_text ('Download Original').

I edited file lightbox2.module and changed the check_plain(variable_get(...)) to check_plain(t(variable_get(...))), i.e. adding a t() call.

I'm not quite sure how the translation works with all the javascript, but this worked for me in 6.x-1.x-dev.

As the lines do not differ in 7.x-1.x-dev I assume that they will also work there.
So I add two patches:

  • 7.x-1.x-dev: lightbox2-translate-string-variables-1717668-1.patch
  • 6.x-1.x-dev: lightbox2-6.x-1.x-dev-translate-string-variables-1717668-1.patch

Can you - or someone else - test the 7-patch?

greetings, gerhard

I came across this same translation issue on a new site design with the latest lightbox2 installed.

I discussed it with Joseph and this patch will be tweaked and applied soon.
