[Plugin: The Events Calendar] Internationalization: Swedish, 24hr clock (22 posts)

    Moving this conversation from email to forum:

    After months of searching for a good calendar for publishing events, i found yours! You guys made my day!

    It works smoothly, even though i have not figured out every aspect of the plugin.

    This evening i have mostly made a translation of the plugin to swedish. But i have also tried to publish some events.

    Maybe i have just missed something, but i have some questions:

    1. Is it possible to post an event ONLY to the events calendar, and not to the regular blog posts? How do i do that?

    2. Can i change the coding so that the week will start with monday? (Thats how we do it in Sweden)

    3. In Sweden we only use 24-hour system. It would be nice if the plugin supported that on the dropdowns in the meta box (adminpages). Is that possible?

    Im sure i will have some more questions later, but for now i just want to say: great job guys, i will support this project as much as i can!

    Cheers!

    Yes, i should probably have wrote this here, where it belongs. But my questions remains the same...

    That's fantastic!! What do you need us to do in order to bundle in the translation. While we have tried to be good about adding _e to all labels, I'm sure some got missed. We probably also need ot make a .po file. Anything else?

    #1. You are the second person to make that request. Off the top of my head, there is no simple way to automagically do it without touching your general loop template. (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/353956). Let me toss it around with the other contributors and see what we come up with. When WP 3.0 comes out, with the new post types it might be a straight forward affair.

    #2. I'll add that request to the queue and we can put it in settings.

    #3. I don't see why not. I'll add it to the queue.

    Btw - if you are a coder and do these, we will gladly add your patches.

    No, unfortunaly im not a coder. Im just a newbie at this, but i think i got the translation to swedish right. I do have some small translation issues left, for example i cant find where to change the name of the month in the calendar grid. You can see it here: http://flen.vansterpartiet.se/category/events/month/

    "January" should be "Januari" in swedish, and so on.

    Its bedtime here, but i can send you some screendumps tomorrow. Probably you cant check my spelling in swedish, but you can see if i have changed all visible text.

    Of course you can have the translated files, if you want to bundle them. That would be an honor to make a small contribution in that way.

    Good night!

    Hella again Shane.

    I have translated the php-files to swedish, but maybe it would be a better solution if you created a po- and mo-file, so i could do the translation in there. That would probably be preferad by others.

    And now i have another request...

    It would be very nice to have the ability to duplicate an event, and then just change a single detail, for example the date.

    In my case i want to call people to a meeting, every month, on the same location and same time. Its just the date that i would like to change.

    And btw... i found a workaround to one of my issues, to exclude events from the normal blogposts.

    I used a plugin called "Advanced Category Excluder", and that worked just fine.

    Thanks for the tip Kaj. I'll try to make a Po file today or tomorrow and get it to you.

    The .po and .mo files are now included in the latest release of both the calendar and eventbrite plugins. Have at em folks. When you are done and satisfied, send me a copy of those file and I'll include them in the next release. You can find my email on our website home page at http://www.shanenandpeter.com.

    Hi there, and thanks for the PO and MO-file.

    I will begin translating now, but i must ask: Is it really necessary to translate everything? I mean the country-names?

    I don't think you need to translate everything but I'm not sure. The PO file just grabs everything. Though I would consider changing some of them eventually. I say, go with what you want to start and it can get expanded over time.

    The countries gets intense, but they differ in ever language:

    English: Germany
    French: Allemagne
    Spanish: Alemania
    ...

    wait till the next release (in qa now). Then grab the pot file from the /lang/ folder and use poedit to go through the file.

    Qa found 8 small bugs and one big one. As soon as we patch those.

    My guess is that we should release by Monday at the latest as most of the contributors to this plugin are headed off to panama for two weeks with me...

    ok... but the new release wil be a new version plugin right? Just thninking that it would be much easyer for new users... because i have hat tons of problems that i have had to figure out myself and/or ask my geek nerd programing friends.

    Are you going to waith with the release until we have transelated it? or could that be done afterwords?

    Yes release means an update to the plugin (for more details: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/360263). I was suggesting you wait until the release to do your translation and we can add Norwegian to 1.5.5 / 1.6

    Just a thought about not showing events as blog posts, only as events. (No. 1 on Kaj's request list.)

    Wouldn't it be easiest to just exclude the Events category in the loop?

    Of course it would be even easier to manage this with options in the administration. (I can do some code, but I'm also quite lazy ;)

    In my case I would not want to exclude events from the blog posts. But a dedicated Events category is quite useful.

    Vill också tacka Kaj för översättnignen. Såg bara någon detlaj som fattades. Men bra jobbat! Hoppas bara de får till 24 h klocka och veckostart på måndag så blir detta ett perfekt plugin. Du påpekade exakt samma saker som jag ville justera ;)

    Dear Kaj,

    I also want to not show events in my blog posts. I installed the Advanced Category Excluder but am overwhelmed with the options. I just want to exclude the event post showing in my blog and am not interested in all the other options.

    Would you mind telling me specifically how you did that? I'm sure that, as usual, I'm just missing something basic.

    My Blog is here (still under construction) http://mydailyearrings.com/todays-earrings-2/.

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Best, Pam

    Kaj,

    Nevermind, I did finally figure it out.

    Thanks, Pam
