Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 171894
Buttons in Web UI are not translatable
Last modified: 2007-10-23 22:46:51 EDT
For 410 we will be translating the RHN Web UI into many languages. Currently, we
have many image buttons in the interface that have text embedded into them. As
they are, we would have to send the button text to the translation team and
create an image for each button per language manually.
A better solution is to get away from using image-based buttons and instead use
CSS to style the buttons, so the button text is in plain text that the
translation team can translate along with all of the other text.
Attached is an image of the current button styles as compared to a few options
we have for CSS styling:
D: The current image-based buttons.
A: A css style that matches our current buttons most closely, but has
complicated CSS styling.
B & C: A css style that matches our current buttons somewhat closely, with a
very simple CSS style.
E: The button style WWW uses for www.redhat.com buttons
My vote's for A or B&C (depending on whether or not A causes cross-browser
issues which is pretty likely)

Let's do a UI spec, and start a dialog on this on rhn-java-list. My vote's are
B & C
I like the flatter look and feel.
