    Hello, we are testing Wired Impact Volunteer Management on our German website and noticed that, apart from the translation being incomplete which we can fix, the format of date and time seems to be always American style.

    However we would like to see time and dates displayed according to our locale. Which is day before month and most important, 24 hours time format instead of 12 hours AM/PM.

    I’m happy to help @w-sky. The good news is that if you go through the process of translating the plugin to work in German, you’ll be able to translate the date and time formats as well. It should work exactly the same as the process to translate words and phrases.

    For example, take a look at this list of strings that hasn’t been translated into German yet. In that list you’ll see strings such as “D, F j, Y”. If you double click that string, you’ll see a comment noting that it corresponds to PHP date formatting. You can translate it to use any of the format options from https://www.php.net/manual/en/datetime.format.php so it matches what’s preferred in Germany.

    We’re not experts in WordPress translation, but we have had others outside of the United States work through this before. If you have any questions just let us know. We’re happy to help out.

    Since we haven’t heard from you in a little while I’m going to mark this as resolved. Of course, if you have any other questions don’t hesitate to let us know!
