[Plugin: All-in-One Event Calendar] Multilingual calendar

  • I am using WPML to create a multilingual website. Facing 2 major problems with ai1ec:

    1. Not sure how to create the multilingual calendar page. I mean, WPML lets me click to create (say) a German version of the English page, but even if I tell WPML to “Copy content from English”, the German page remains an empty page in the frontend.

    2. Fields like month names (january, february, etc), day names (Mon, Tue, etc) etc are not in translation files. This makes the internationalization very weak. Even if my default language is (say) French, and I create a calendar in French, if I go to that page in frontend, the month names, day names etc are in English. Well, actually it’s a bit more complicated…on the first load, calendar shows French (e.g.) day names…

    But if I go to next month, everything is English. Worse, if I come back, everything (including day names) is English. And even weirder is the fact that if I then refresh the page then first the day names appear in French (while grayed and still with the loading marker) before changing to English when page is fully loaded.

  • Same issue


    Can you name one or two plugins that works with WPML? Preferably plugins that work with dates.

    WPML authors are happy to work with you to make ai1ec compatible with WPML http://forum.wpml.org/topic.php?id=5707#post-28360

    Documentation & contact form http://wpml.org/documentation/theme-compatibility/go-global-program/

    @josjo: I use several plugins that are compatible:
    Theme Weaver and plugin Weaver Plus
    Basic Google Maps Placemarks
    Greg’s High Performance SEO
    Contact Form 7

    I have the same problem. Thanks OC2PS for pointing it out.

    Yup, ai1ec seems to struggle with multilingual sites…



    Good to see that I’m not the only one with this problem 🙂

    I really like the plugin, apart from this annoying issue.

    No word yet from the developers?

    How is it good that we have this problem?



    Of course the problem is bad.

    I meant it is good to know that I am not alone, and that it’s not me that’s doing something incredibly stupid…

    Hi all,

    Happy new year!

    All in one event calendar is developed strictly according to I18n for WordPress Developers
    There are German, Spanish, French, Dutch, and Swedish translations available with the plugin. When you enable these translations, Month names, Day names, etc are being translated properly.

    The issue here is WPML and not with ai1ec. The solution to this problem will be to fix WPML.
    Again, there is nothing wrong with ai1ec as it has been developed strictly to the standard provided by WordPress.

    If you think that there is something wrong with the plugin and it hasn’t been developed properly, just let me know and I will be more than happy to fix it.

    We are open to work with everyone to make the plugin work on any configuration but in this case, I think that the problem is not in ai1ec.

    Yani, I think the issue is not i18n. The issue is multilingual support. There is a difference.

    If I install ai1ec on a German site, I think it might work fine. Problem is that if I have a site in German AND English, I know that it doesn’t.

    There are really only 2 ways of creating multilingual sites with WordPress – WPML is the most popular, and qTranslate.

    So it would be good if you can make ai1ec work with WPML.

    All I am asking is that you go to http://wpml.org/documentation/theme-compatibility/go-global-program/ and fill up the form. WPML guys will install ai1ec on their test site with WPML and check it out. Then, if any changes need to be made to WPML, they will make them. If any changes need to made to ai1ec, they will let you know in specific detail.

    Oh, and a very happy and prosperous new year to you.

    P.S. You can check #2 out at http://www.csillamvilag.com/naptar-2/

    You will see the calendar day names, month name are in Hungarian (as picked from the WP .mo). Excellent!

    But if you go to previous/next month, these change to English. If you then come back to current month, these stay English.

    THAT is a problem.

    Don’t worry about things like Month, Week, Agenda, Today, etc being in English…that’s just because I haven’t provided a Hungarian .mo for the plugin yet.

    I am more than happy to fill out the form and I just did.
    Let’s wait to hear back from WPML.
    Thank you!

    Thanks, Yani! Fingers crossed, breath bated, etc 🙂

    The WPML guys say they have contacted you but haven’t heard back from you yet.
