    (newbie) Event Calendar translation Link to this post


    I've been trying to translate the front end text for the Event calendar, what I've done is:

    *** For _config.php I've changed like so:

    < Calendar::set_param('language','EN');
    < Calendar::set_param('timezone', 'US-Eastern');
    > Calendar::set_param('language','NO');
    > Calendar::set_param('timezone', 'Europe/Oslo');
    < CalendarDateTime::set_param('offset','-04:00');
    > // CalendarDateTime::set_param('offset','02:00');
    < i18n::include_locale_file('event_calendar', 'en_US');
    > i18n::include_locale_file('event_calendar', 'nb_NO');

    *** I've created lang/nb_NO.php - a replica of the existing de_DE.php translation, except I've changed all the array keys to nb_NO and translated all the content. Also changed the last line to:

    $lang['nb_NO']['CalendarWidget']['LOCALEFILE'] = 'date_nbNO.js';

    *** I've created javascript/locale/date_nbNO.js, again replica of the existing date_de.js except the content has been translated.

    After doing this - nothing happens. All is still english. I've double checked:
    - My users profile is norwegian (although it seems the locale is hard-coded in event_calendar/_config.php anyways?)
    - The page I created is registered as a norwegian translation (again as above, maybe it does not matter?)
    - Run dev/build?flush=1 a couple of times.

    So clearly I'm missing something which probably is part of the SilverStripe basics - but please help me because I cannot seem to Google my way to that info.

    Thanks for your time,

    i gues smth like this in your mysite/_config.php will do the trick

    setlocale(LC_ALL, 'de_DE');
    setlocale (LC_TIME, "de_DE.UTF-8");

    Ah, that seems to work. Thanks!

    Now - did I just hardcode the locale for everyone, or is this just the default setting?

    Yeah, you hardcoded the locale. By default it should be the locale of your php configuration, so maybe your hosting provider is US based? You're going to have to handle setting the locale dynamically within Silverstripe, e.g. evaluating the "locale" request parameter, or using a subdomain, etc..

    Ok, thanks for the info.

    My hosting is myself and it's not US based - but it might very well be that I've misconfigured something making PHP think it is in the US.

    So if I understand you correctly - evaluation of what locale to use, other that the system default, is not part of Silverstripe and the logic for selecting the right locale (be it request parameter, subdomain or something else) is usually put in mysite/_config.php ?

    Otherwise, UncleCheese, big kudos on both the Event Calendar and the image gallery. I've been trying them out (along with my first ever Silverstripe installation) and they seem to rock real hard!

    Regards, Magnus
