but nothing is in the other language. i know only 14% of it is translated but a few words are translated (i looked for it) for backend and frontend but everything is english.

…and in my wp-config.php i don´t find a snipped like “define (‘WPLANG’,);” that can i change in “define (‘WPLANG’, ‘fr_FR’);”

so i test it to copy that snipped in the .php but thats not a goal

Hi,

We have a guide here on how to enable a new language in Event Espresso 4:

http://eventespresso.com/wiki/how-to-change-languages/

Since, you are wanting to use the German language, you’ll need to use this macro in your wp-config.php file:

define(‘WPLANG’, ‘de_DE’);

The middle of the file is a good spot to add it and be sure to save changes.

Next, be sure that you get the latest languages files from here:

http://translate.eventespresso.com/projects/event-espresso-4/de/event-espresso-de_DE

The files will be downloaded to your computer and you’ll need to edit the file names so that they look like this (note the underscore and number 4):

event_espresso-4-de_DE.po
event_espresso-4-de_DE.mo

The last step is to upload these files here:

wp-content/uploads/espresso/languages

You should then see some translations throughout your site.

Hi Lorenzo,

thanks for helping!
I did all what you say but i don´t see some translations!

– wp-config.php is edit (I test a few spots to add it)
– langauge files are downloaded, renamed and uploadet in the right folder

What can be the Problem?

Hi Trexirus,

There is a small error in instructions from Lorenzo above. The files names should not be:

event_espresso-4-de_DE.po
event_espresso-4-de_DE.mo

They need to be:

event_espresso-de_DE.po
event_espresso-de_DE.mo

If you rename those file the translations should then work.

Hello again,

We have a new resource that explains how to translate Event Espresso. You can view it here:

http://eventespresso.com/wiki/how-to-translate-event-espresso/

Also, GlotPress now has translation strings that are up to date for the current version of Event Espresso.

Thanks!


Lorenzo
