In an earlier post Josh made it seem like it was close to working:

https://eventespresso.com/forums/2012/06/few-bugs/

With #3, WPML doesn’t work with Event Espresso. We are working on a solution that uses q-translate. This could be integrated right now with some template customization. See this post for more info:

I can see how this could easily work with qTranslate, but I can’t seem to get the .mo files to work when switching languages with qTranslate.

If I explicitly set the language using WP_LANG it will use the .mo files, but not if the language is set using the language switch in qTranslate.

Ok. Found the problem with the .mo files and not catching the qTrans language change.

The problem is that qTrans updates the locale on plugins_loaded with priority 2. EE explicity loads the locale (mo) files whenever the plugin first loaded but not initialized.

A quick fix was to change:

//Get language files
load_plugin_textdomain('event_espresso', false, dirname(plugin_basename(__FILE__)) . '/languages');

and change it to:

add_action('plugins_loaded', 'espresso_loadLanguageFiles', 11);
function espresso_loadLanguageFiles(){
    //Get language files
    load_plugin_textdomain('event_espresso', false, dirname(plugin_basename(__FILE__)) . '/languages');
}

That way the language files are loaded just after the other plugins. For not qtrans is initialized with priority 2.

Nice catch. I’ll create a ticket so we can get this added in.

As I keep doing work to clean up qTranslate and EE would you guys be willing to to continue to consider adding the non-intrusive support for it?

I have seen a few people report that the form posts do no maintain the language.

This is easily solved:

Old form code:

 change home_url()+pageId stuff

Now becomes:

get_permalink($event_page_id) 

This will allow qTrans to respect the language.

If you need the blog url using DO NOT USE home_url() instead use bloginfo(‘url’) which will maintain the language code.

I will use this thread as a bit of a how-to to getting EE to work with qTrans.
