Hello Guys,

I have an English version of WordPress installed with the Event Espresso Plugin. However, the plugin serves me Dutch Event Registration pages and also the admin area of Event Espresso is in Dutch. I want it in English, what to do now?!!

Please let me know.

Thanks! Regards BC

Check in the wp-config.php file for a language definition. If something is defining another language other than English, this can be removed.

Also, check the language file directory of the Event Espresso plugin and compare the english language files from a freshly downloaded copy of Event Espresso, you might try uploading a fresh copy of Event Espresso.

Is it possible to set a different language in Event Espresso than in WordPress?

I want to use the norwegian translation of WordPress, but the norwegian translation of Event Espresso really doesn’t make any sense at all, so I would prefer having Event Espresso in english (at least until a decent norwegian translation is provided).

No. Or, more specifically: sort of.

If you set the language in your wp-config.php and you don’t actually have that language file installed, you will have Event Espresso spitting out that language (if we have a translation in that language) but WordPress will still be in English. The only caveat, I believe, is that you need to have a /languages/ directory and a language file (any language file) in it for the define('WPLANG', ''); line to work at all.

So it’s possible to define the WP language but not actually have that language file installed and that would still trigger the Event Espresso (and any other localized plugin or theme) translation of the defined language.

Thanks, problem solved by deleting the language files in the Event Espresso plugin folder 🙂
