Strings will be translated to foreign languages if they are defined in a local translation file. Additions to this file can be suggested at our repository. The file can be found here: https://github.com/msberends/AMR/blob/master/data-raw/translations.tsv. This file will be read by all functions where a translated output can be desired, like all
mo_* functions (such as
mo_type(), etc.) and
ab_* functions (such as
Currently supported languages are: Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. Please note that currently not all these languages have translations available for all antimicrobial agents and colloquial microorganism names.
Please suggest your own translations by creating a new issue on our repository.
The system language will be used at default (as returned by
Sys.getenv("LANG") or, if
LANG is not set,
Sys.getlocale()), if that language is supported. But the language to be used can be overwritten in two ways and will be checked in this order:
Setting the R option
AMR_locale, e.g. by running
options(AMR_locale = "de")
Setting the system variable
LANG, e.g. by adding
LANGUAGE="de_DE.utf8" to your
.Renviron file in your home directory
So if the R option
AMR_locale is set, the system variables
LANG will be ignored.
The lifecycle of this function is stable. In a stable function, major changes are unlikely. This means that the unlying code will generally evolve by adding new arguments; removing arguments or changing the meaning of existing arguments will be avoided.
If the unlying code needs breaking changes, they will occur gradually. For example, a argument will be deprecated and first continue to work, but will emit an message informing you of the change. Next, typically after at least one newly released version on CRAN, the message will be transformed to an error.
