How to Chineselization movabletype

There are several solutions about the the movabletype localization, the best resources are:

  1. Movable Type Ultimate Handbook – A big5 website with downloadable Chinese book, very good for newbie. This website also provide full package of Chinese icons, translations and manuals.
  2. An unknown author’s tip of localization.

By reading the informations, I did my localization as follow:

  1. Open mt.cfg under the cgi-bin folder, set NoHTMLEntities to 1, and set PublishCharset to GB2312. Make sure the GB2312 is uppercase.
  2. Open CGI.pm under MTextlib, find $self->charset(‘ISO-8859-1’); change the ISO-8859-1 to GB2312. Also, make sure it is uppercase.
  3. Save the zh_cn.pm file to libMTL10N, you can download the zh_cn.pm from the following links (do remember change the file name to zh_cn.pm):
    UTF-8 encoded zh_cn.pm
    GB2312 encoded zh_cn.pm
