Event submission form – Translations not working after update.

    Hey there,
    Just wanted to let you know that a couple of the translations that did work before the latest update doesn’t any more. In my case it with the Swedish translation. Will this get fixed very soon in an upcoming update or should I edit the themer’s guide templates to get it right for now, temporarily? The translations is in the .po file. They just don’t show up on the site anymore.
    One example is:

    Images that are not png, jpg, or gif will not be uploaded.
    Images may not exceed 32 MB in size.

    Another is:

    Select or Create a Venue

    Then also in the Wp-admin on the submission form – There is:


    …that doesn’t get translated either, even though it in the .po file as well. (This one was before the update too.)

    Hi Emil,

    Thanks for the heads up and sorry about this bug. We are aware of this and should be fixed in the next maintenance release.

    The issue most likely comes from the .po translation files not being updated.

    What you can do it open the .po file with a suitable application (e.g. PoEdit) and from the Catalog menu choose Update from POT…, then select the .pot file. Check the translations, then save and upload the .po and .mo files to your server. Hopefully this should do it.

    Note, there is one string on the Community Events submission form that will not get translated at the moment, which is “All Day Event” next to a checkbox.

    Possible fix for this is: the namespace on line 150 needs to be changed in
    wp-content\plugins\the-events-calendar-community-events\src\views\community\modules\datepickers.php from:

    <?php esc_html_e( 'All Day Event', 'tribe-community-events' ); ?>


    <?php esc_html_e( 'All Day Event', 'the-events-calendar' ); ?>

    I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    Thank you,
    It worked indeed to change to ‘the-events-calendar’ but the latest update from yesterday was terrific and made that change superfluous.
    All I had to do to Update from POT today. I hade to mess around quite a lot
    to get it to work but eventually it worked very nicely.
    It solved all the rest of the problematic strings as well. (Almost)

    Except for one…


    Have I made a mistake or is it still unresolved?
    Any solutions for that?
    Thanks in advance.

    Your ‘the-events-calendar’ quickfix worked for this as well, so never mind.
