I need to know if EE is compatible with WPML.

If no, how can I let the client to change the language of the events, by clicking in the flag (english, italian, german, ect.)?

Formally, EE has no integration with WPML. Some users have apparently been successful in using WPML with EE3, but it has required a lot of tweaking. We have no information on how they achieved it.

EE4 has no formal integration either, but as it is Custom Post Type based it is more likely to be easier to integrate.

I’m afraid that there isn’t integration with WPML, given that it is a large distributed plugin. Also, it is uncomfortable to not be able to change language on the fly, like in the other pages/posts.

In my opinion, you should consider to integrate this plugin at 100% with your EE.

Thanks for the feedback, and it is something we are considering.

So, if I understood right, I give you my wordpress theme (with Event Espresso plugin) and you proceed to turn it for WPML?
