Support » Plugin: Simple Membership » Multi-language

  • I use Polylang. I have more than one language. Your plugin states it supports the other languages besides English.

    I would like to use this with more than one language and hopefully when I use the language switcher, the strings for the plugin come up in the selected language.

    Please help.

    Thank you

    Hi, how many languages are you running in your site?

    Thank you sharing more information. Unfortunately I have never used Polylang plugin. And at the present there is no integration with Polylang.

    When I have time I will try and test both plugins.

    Kind regards

    Ok, more time to test things and work out a process and I think I am closer. I am sharing this because I think it might be helpful for your research.

    There are two aspects that I think apply here:

    Backend: Switching the language of the site does indeed cause the .mo files to display the admin section in the corresponding language.

    Frontend: This is where Polylang does its bit. All the pages that are installed by default are in English. I would use Polylang then to create translated versions of these pages used for Login, Join etc.

    I have yet to finish that step to see how well that works out.

    I think I am at least a good portion of the way there.

    I hope my input on this is helpful to you and others.

    Hi, that is good news in regards to the following comment. Which is how it should work.

    Backend: Switching the language of the site does indeed cause the .mo files to display the admin section in the corresponding language.

    In regards to the following comment. Simple Membership should also show the correct language for the login and protected messages corresponding to the backend language displayed. However if you are using any of the addons, this feature might not work correctly because none of the addons have been translated in other languages yet.

    Frontend: This is where Polylang does its bit. All the pages that are installed by default are in English. I would use Polylang then to create translated versions of these pages used for Login, Join etc.

    Of course the above is only true if both plugins integrate correctly.

    Keep me posted with your progress and solution if any.

    Thank you

    However if you are using any of the addons, this feature might not work correctly because none of the addons have been translated in other languages yet.

    I will make it part of my testing to see if Polylang has any influence on the Add-ons. I know for CPTs such as ACF and Formidable Forms Pro, Polylang is helpful.

    If Polylang is not the solution, who “owns” these ad-ons? Would we be looking at creating .po / .mo files for these then? I would be interested in Japanese translations and maybe Spanish as well. I MAY have some resources to help get that done. No promises at this point but I am willing to look into that.

    Hi, as far as I know the developers are planning to configure the addons so they can be translated. This will happen in a future release. I am not sure when though.

    Kind regards
