I believe you can easily set-up FPDF / GeoIP location to build the current cover in the right language dynamically on-demand...

Updated (little).

@forart : The SVG -> PDF conversion doesn't render well. Maybe this one is better. I can't try it because I'm not good with these stuff and I'm not on Linux. But I think that's better to translate it "manually".
But making the cover multilingual is a good idea :).

There are still some issues with the cover like justify the text that I don't know how to fix.

Why do you need to convert the SVG to PDF?

Sorry I looked at the link too fast. I thought it build PDFs (multilingual) from PDF (monolingual). But it still doesn't fit well with SVG, isn't it ?

Edit : Updated. I made the French translation. It's not perfect and it can surely be better made.
Any volunteers to correct or to translate in other languages ?

Quick test:

http://www.forart.it/cover.php?image=01.png&ver=0.38a

Try to type anything in place of "0.38a" and change "01.png" with "02.jpg" parameters...

Can you understand what i mean ?

Easy as:

Code: Select all

<?php
require('../classes/fpdf.php');

$pdf = new FPDF('L', 'pt', 'a4');
$pdf->AddPage();
$pdf->SetAuthor('CC by-nc-sa / Associazione Culturale >>Forward Agency');
$pdf->Image('../images/'.$image, 0, 0, $size[0], $size[1]);
$pdf->SetFont('Arial','B',16);
$pdf->SetTextColor(128);
$pdf->Cell(40,10,$ver);
$pdf->Output();
?>
Note that you can also easily get text from txt files, put images with alpha transparency, etc.

Check out tutorial and script examples.

Here's a good collection of PDF DVD templates and not only...

37 cool DVD templates (it would be great to allow users to customize the DVD background, expecilly for distros...)

Those guyz should be involved too...

...and those would be really great for the website, IMHO !

No sorry, I don't understand what would it change compared to SVG :?.
If I understood well what is it for, it's for changing the text dynamically, right ?
But the website hoster is the only one who can allow different texts and you can't do some changes like SVG allows to do (like the background of the text on the back cover).

I like the 7 DVD Covers, especially the first one with the background.
And for the website, this one may be the best, IMHO.

PS : Added a wallpaper.

Edit : Oops, sorry hto.
