Support » Plugin: Events Manager » Localization: some strings can't be translated

  • Hi there!

    I’m using the free version of events-manager, before going for the pro version.

    Right now I’ve started working with templates and the first thing I wanted to do is translating all strings (I’ve a website in Italian and French: so far I’m giving up making this plugin working with WPML, but at least I’d like to have it in Italian).

    So, in the Events list template, these strings can’t be translated (they don’t appear in the po file and poedit can’t find them as new string: perhaps gettext isn’t used at all with these string?):

    – bet­ween
    – and
    – Event (in table header)

    In addition, the dropdown list of Countries, in the Location admin page, appears in English, therefore even in the front-end they appears in English (Italy must be Italia, for instance).

    atm wpml isn’t something I’d recommend trying to integrate with EM (nothing bad necessarily with WPML, it’s just they don’t mix)

    I’ve just updated french in the development version, the first almost fully translated language in a while. (see other versions on

    I’ll check these out and update if it’s missing the gettext domain, as I had to do this to a couple others yesterday in the settings page.

    If you spot others let me know!

    If your plugin and WPML don’t mix, it’s simply because you’ve chosen not to use custom post types.

    I’ve moved to another WPML friendly plugin: amr ical events (

    It uses either standard or custom post types, it has really a lot of options and customization and, most importantly, is Non-English-Speaking-Users minded.

    By the way, the link you’ve provided doesn’t work.

    true, but that’s because this plugin was made before custom post types existed 🙂 anyways good luck
