hi,

German translation for Date.js and FormValidator.js are ready.

One Note:
In Date.js there is a ordinal function "getOrdinal".
In German there is nothing like this. Just 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. etc.
It is better to insert dots instead of the 'th', 'st', 'nd', 'rd', 'th'

Dont't know how post the files to GitHub (looks complicated ;-)
so I attached the files to this mail...

cheers
frank

Hi,

I've fixed a minor typo in the FormValidator.

In Date.German.js I made the following changes:

- changed the getOrdinal function to just return '.' as we have no 1st
2nd. etc. in German as Frank already said.
- changed the XtimeUnitsAgo/InXTimeUnits messages to be shorter and
more concise.

There is still a problem with "am"/"pm" as this concept is not used in
Germany when dealing with time of day. (We use 24h clocks).

The Files are here:
FormValidator.German.js http://gist.github.com/65452
Date.German.js: http://gist.github.com/65456

Bye
Ulrich

Something I forgot: there should be a setting for first day of week as
in Germany (and most of Europe AFAIK) the week starts on Monday.

Good idea. I'll add this to the file soon. I'm a little behind picking up all these translations - I hope to get to them today or tomorrow.

As Ulrich said, it's true there might be a problem with the "am/pm" concept, if it is automated in mootools "Date" scripts.

But when I take a look at the "Date" class, I see that the "setAMPM" method is not automatically called, so there should be no problem with that concept as long as we don't call this method ourselves.

Besides, the "format" method seems to embed some common date formats (ISO, RFC, etc.) which do not include the 12-hour-clock period marker.

In Brazil we don't use AM/PM too... i think in most of the countries.
We use 24h.

about 1st, 2nd.... i've sent the function to return 1º, 2º, 3º... as we use here.
