    Did you modify the translation file, or are you trying to use one of the ones already available? If so, which language?

    I’ve just tested this on a completely new WordPress installation (only EDD & qTranslate plugged in).
    My revised conclusions are as follows:

    1. Switching between translations works always in the body and title of each EDD entry, independently of the settings.
    2. Translating dysfunction occurs in all the texts, which should be retrieved from a .MO file.
    3. Adding a language in qTranslate, adequate for the available in EDD resources, does not change anything in retrieving translations (and tried a lot of them).
    4. When I add my newly created .MO files (based on default.po or any other .PO file in EDD /languages/ directory), then works only one language from these newly created. Other languages, even English are not loaded. New custom .MO files don’t help.
    5. Point No. 4 is true on condition that it’s not Russian. I can’t call out this lang at all.

    I think there is some confusion on how the languages work.

    Are you setting the site wide language, or only setting the language of the content / title of a download (through qTranslate)?

    The included language files will display all text used in the plugin (but not the title or content) in the selected language, but in order for this to happen, you must set the site wide language.

    What did you name your .mo file?

    I use translations in accordance with the principles both of solutions:

    • gettext catalogs (PO/MO files)
    • qTranslate plugin

    All translations are working properly, except EDD gettexts…
    [themes: WP Twenty Ten / Twenty Eleven]

    I have translated several plugins into Polish (my native) using PO/MO files, and I run a big website with qTranslate (on a wide variety of add-ons and other plugins), Russian included 🙂 so, I think, I can use it 🙂

    Please, would you perform testing with qTranslate yourself?

    First, I can tell you that EDD is doing all of it’s internationalization correctly. I have quite a few users using the plugin in languages other than English. I have also done a test on changing the WordPress language via the wp-config.php file and everything (the entire EDD dashboard) translated just fine.

    I’ve just tested EDD + qTranslate and am having trouble getting the EDD strings to translate, though I’m not sure why.

    Matt (the other developer) and I are going to look into it and see if we can find why it’s not translating through qTranslate.

    If you’re able to change your wp-config.php, then follow the directions here:

    That’s right! It’s OK until you use only one language, defined in wp-config.php

    EDD does not respect switching of locales.

    So, it’s not the fault of qTranslate, just EDD should be prepared for multilingual websites.

    No, that is incorrect. EDD DOES support switching of locale. I have just tested it and everything works perfectly fine.

    Please read through this thread on the qTranslate forums:

    How many langs to switch between?
    Could you paste a link, please.

    What do you mean? How many languages do I have to switch between on my site? How many languages does EDD include?

    Yes, how many languages do you have to switch between on your site?

    Maybe I’m drawing too far-reaching conclusions, but what em I to think if every plugin on my website respects locale, but not EDD?

    Plugin Author Pippin Williamson


    4-5. I tested it with several.

    Can you tell me a couple of your other plugins? Also, what language are you trying to show it in?

    I asked the first, please, show me your multilingual website with EDD & qTranslate 🙂

    My (selected) plugins that support locale:

    • cforms
    • NextGEN Gallery
    • Pie Register
    • WP-Table Reloaded

    If I change wp-config.php, then even Russian is shown correctly, but in EDD places remains as the only! 🙂

    Is some of the text in EDD translated to Russian correctly, just not all?

    Yes, gettext catalog contains only chosen phrases.
    /if that’s what you meant
