how can i change the language to german using multi event registration?
“Add to cart”-Button => “Warenkorb” or something like that…
I use loco translate but there is no “add to cart” translation possibility :-/
thanks for helping me
That button’s text is actually two strings: “Add to %s” and “Event Cart”. You can find them in Loco Translate by searching for the strings. e.g.
thanks! is it possible to get your translation anyway? you also use the german language, do you? i only got 33% translation at my loco translate… 🙁
Yes it is possible! You go here:
Perfect! Thank you very much :-))
Do you speak german? So i may i ask you some other questions about EE in german? thats quiet easier for me 😉
Sorry, another (stupid?) question: i downloaded the file, how can i uploaded it to loco translate? 🙁
Currently, all of the support team are native English speaking so you would need to post in English.
We may be able to decipher bits of German but in the end would need to use Google translate, meaning we may end up answering a completely different question to what you are asking if we do it that way.
There are no stupid questions 🙂
Doing this can be a little tricky with Loco Translate but its possible.
First, the file you downloaded above must be named
Upload that file to
In Loco Translate you need to edit the Event Espresso bundle, so:
Loco Translate -> Plugins -> Event Espresso
What you will see is likely something like this – http://take.ms/IiRfs
EE automatically downloads the MO file for the current language and saves it within the plugin, it does this each time it updates so that ‘default’ translation file is always available (It’s NOT a POT file, its MO file containing some translations).
Go to Setup and you’ll see this – http://take.ms/OQUPn
Click to Import config from XML and use this code: https://gist.github.com/Pebblo/fa61d2c71ac0c19f9720405e20d194f7
It should look like this – http://take.ms/q6sbk
Press load config.
Back in the overview tab you should now see the new PO file you just added, you can edit the translations then save, Loco Translate will generate your MO file and that file will load on your site.
Note for future readers (and above):
We are going to work on making this easier in a future version of Event Espresso and also include the POT file within Event Espresso itself should you need it. Eventually it’s likely you will be able to use the ‘Check config repository’ to automatically load the config rather than having to manually add it yourself.
Actually, I just realised something, above you download the MO file, not PO.
You need to download the PO file from:
Select Portable Object Message Catalog and save that file, that is the file you need to name
Tony, happy new year! thanks for your answer, very much!
so, i gave it a shoot and made it :-), it has been working…
i only got one more “problem”, please have a look at this link:
i only got 35% translation and not 100% 🙁
so, can you help me to get 100% translation?
thank you very much
We don’t have 100% translation for German, the translations are community driven so if you’d like to submit translations and help push for 100% you can apply for an account using the form here:
thanks for your support very much!
Have a good time!
