Issue on setting up an multi-language event site

I am new to Event Espresso and I have set up a multi-site to handling different languages for events. I have been able to setup English version flawlessly and it worked really great.

The issue comes when I come to setting up an event in other languages (e.g. German). For the event registration form, system fields like “First Name”, “Last Name”, “Email” that will be used in mail confirmation. How do I change the labels of these fields? Seems to me that defining new questions in the plugin may work visually but I don’t think it is a proper way to do so. Also, is there a way to link up to a event in different languages (actually two languages) RSVP into one database?

The site is running free version of Event Espresso. I wonder if the premium version will have more flexibility on customizing the look and feel.

Thank you.

Hi Terence,

Event Espresso doesn’t support multi-site or multi-language events.

Hi Josh,

Thanks for your reply.

May I know if there is any plan for multi-site or multi-lingual support?

We’re planning on doing some testing to allow users to be able to use qTranslate (and possibly WPML if it uses the same system) in the future, we just haven’t had the resources to dedicate to it recently.

I would love that too actually. I have a dutch/french/english website I want to use this plugin for.
