Hello everyone,

sorry for the crosspostings, but I wanted to reach out to as many community members as possible. ;-)

As some of you know, we have recently launched a new donation page at, and from now on, we also accept credit card donations without PayPal.

I'd like to call out to the community, to make a translation of that page, to grow donations. If you want to help,

1. please ask at to get appropriate rights in SilverStripe, so you can translate the page itself within the backend; if you are already registered within Silverstripe, please name your accounts e-mail address

2. send to the following information:

        - a translation of the text "Select one of the default values"
- a translation of the text "Or enter a custom amount and currency (only those marked with * are also available via PayPal)"
        - a translation of the button "Donate via Credit Card"
        - a translation of the button "Donate via PayPal"
- your currency (see the dropdown box for the appropriate three-letter-code we need)
        - four predefined donation values (on the original page: 5, 10, 20 and 50)
        - a predefined custom value (on the original page: 25)

The predefined amounts should roughly correlate with the value of Euro/USD in your country. If you are brave, you can directly edit the PHP source code and send it to us:

$lang['en_US']['DonatePage']['BUTTON_CARD']   = 'Donate via Credit Card';
$lang['en_US']['DonatePage']['BUTTON_PAYPAL'] = 'Donate via PayPal';
$lang['en_US']['DonatePage']['CHOICE_DEFAULT']= 'Select one of the default values'; $lang['en_US']['DonatePage']['CUSTOM_CHOICE'] = 'Or enter a custom amount and currency<br/>(Only those marked with * are also available via PayPal)';
$lang['en_US']['DonatePage']['CUSTOM_AMOUNT_VALUE'] = '25';
$lang['en_US']['DonatePage']['DEFAULT_AMOUNT_EUR05']= '5';
$lang['en_US']['DonatePage']['DEFAULT_AMOUNT_EUR10']= '10';
$lang['en_US']['DonatePage']['DEFAULT_AMOUNT_EUR20']= '20';
$lang['en_US']['DonatePage']['DEFAULT_AMOUNT_EUR50']= '50';
$lang['en_US']['DonatePage']['DEFAULT_CURRENCY'] = 'USD';

Please do *NOT* send back the information as reply to this message, since it will most likely get to the webmasters with a delay. Send it, at least as Cc, to

Thank you very much for your support!
