Messages templates not translated on new sites

I had created a new site with EE.
All message templates are untranslated, despites they’re ok in Glotpress.
I think that is the very deprecated “” file.
Can you replace it on install from scratch?

Certain areas of Event Espresso are not populated from the language file.

For example, the default system registration groups, registration questions, and message templates are not translated since that information is stored in the database when Event Espresso is activated.

Ok, but anyway the “” file is deprecated.
It’s necessary update it on install file.

We are working on updating all of the translation files that are automatically downloaded when you switch languages.

If you place the latest version of translations within:


Then reset your message templates through:

Event Espresso -> Messages -> Default Message Templates -> {Template} -> Reset templates (within the editor)

Your translations will be used when re-generating the templates.

However note that you will need to reset EACH message template to pull the translations for all.
