I've written a Content Element for the eCard Component for Joomla 1.5 "RWCards" in version 3.0.16 (http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/3430/details)
With this content element you can translate:
- the title of a category
- the description of a category
- the image of a card *)
- the description of a card
*)if you have an image with text on it, you can upload a "translated" image and a translated thumbnail via the Joomla Media Manager or via FTP to /images/stories/cards (look to it that your thumbnail are named like "firstname.lastname@example.org")
If you want to use your original image and only want to translate the description, just insert the filename of the original image as translation.
Here is the Content Element. Just upload it through your Joom!Fish Content Element Installer.
- The workaround is not necessary anymore!
