Sure. Just create an it_IT.php lang file and add all your translations. We could really use more!

It should follow your locale settings. You may have to manually set your locale using i18n::set_locale("it_IT"); in your _config.php.

When you finish the translation, please post here so I can check into the code. Thanks.

Hi,
I have modified it_IT.php from en_EN.php and I have manually set my locale using i18n::set_locale("it_IT"); in \event_calendar\_config.php.... but I noticed that some words like the name of months are always in english ...
why? In javascript\locale there is date_it.js with the correct names but seems not to consider them ....
How can I do?
Many thanks

Yeah, I'm not sure why users are reporting that they need to manually set their locales. Do you have other modules that are translating correctly without that?

The month names are generated using the PHP strftime() function, which is supposed to be locale-aware. Does strftime() return Italian months for you?

Make sure sure you update the javascript locale file in your it_IT.php. I think it's the last line. If you tell it to look for a different js file, you should get the translations in your calendar widget.

I think I have followed your instructions.
In it_IT.php file I checked : there's date_it.js .... I think it is correct, right?
I attach the file where you can see that the month names aren't correct ...

I know that I'll probably silly questions but I'm new of SS and I'd like to learn because I think it's a is a great software but the web sites must also be in Italian ... so I hope you can help me.

Many thanks

I had the same problem with the month names. I wanted the German month names, but it always showed the English names. The solution for me was to add the following line to the _config.php in mysite. The setting is for Swiss German.

setlocale (LC_TIME, "de_CH.UTF-8");

For Italian it should be:

setlocale (LC_TIME, "it_IT.UTF-8");

Maybe this helps.
