The story behind the Russian language files donated to the OXID community

Some days ago, I accidentally found the Russian search engine Yandex and encountered some online stores based on OXID eShop Community Edition in Russian language while exploring it. I contacted three store owners in Russian (yep, I did learn Russian, but didn’t use it for a long time) and asked if they would like to contribute their language files for community use. I got immediate answers from two of them 🙂

Konstantin and Vadim gladly sent to me the Russian translation for the OXID eShop front end as well as for the administration area. Both files have been published on the language site of OXIDforge. Feel free to use them in your own online shop instance.

To be honest, I am pretty glad we have Russian now for several reasons. Firstly, I believe Russia (and former member states of the Soviet Republic) are a huge and growing business region in ecommerce. Hence it would be great to grow an even larger Russian OXID eShop community and attract more developers. Last not least, it’s a great opportunity for me to practice my rusty Russian in the forums 😉

Константин и Вадим – спосибо большое, вы молодцы!
