TOPIC: Multilingual event information and description???

Multilingual event information and description??? 7 years 8 months ago #11025

Is there no way to make the event information such as location name, address, event name, description, etc, multilingual? It doesn't seem to work with Joomfish...

What is the point of having the component multilingual if you can't store events information in different languages?

Please tell me there's a way to do this, otherwise I'll be very disappointed. :S

Hello,

The multi-language functionality can be achieved by creating separate categories for events from different languages. Basically you will need to duplicate the categories, locations and events and display a certain category depending on the site language.

That only works if the user accessed the event through the events category list of the same language. What if the user was originally on an event page and wants to switch to another language with Joomfish (using lang GET value and session)?

Hello,

The event page is actually a direct link to the component. You will notice that you have a multiple languages installed, RSEvents! will automatically change the language of the event frame. For example, instead of "hosted by" you will have the translation of "hosted by".

...so yes when addressing this - RSEvents! is multilingual.

Hello,

I will try to offer a native Joomla! example so you can understand why content isn't easy translatable. Take one article blog layout, published on your site. You can click on one of the article items. It will display in the default language, but in the same time if you change the language, the article will not be translated.
