I am wondering how I can translate the date fields and whether there is an easy way to do it without having to write hooks modify preprocess_node. I want to be able to add custom date format, possibly rtl such as Hebrew and Arabic, but i18n does not provide this.
Do I have to build custom hook?
Also, I tried to translate some of theme strings stored in variable such as the line (submitted by author on date ) . used I18N and searched for the string under interface transaltion with no success. are these bugs ? or am I approaching it the wrong way?
Thanks in advance
