    Good day,

    Strings like “Venue Name”, “Address”, “Organizer Name”, “All (Events)” aren’t translated.
    Where this can be fixed?

    /events/list has following untranslated strings:
    – “Learn More”
    – “Export Events”
    The title consists of “*events* Archive” untranslated string

    Hello Danna

    Most of our support staff is away on the annual company retreat. They are far more advanced at translation issues than I am. I expect you should have an answer when they return in a few days.

    Until then, I am moving this post to the Translations forum for them to find.

    Hi Danna!

    So sorry for the delay on this, let’s see what we can do to get this sorted out asap!

    For each plugin you can find the ‘.po‘ files in the ‘lang‘ directory. So, for example in each of the plugins you can go to ‘lang > tribe-events-community-ru_RU.po‘ to see what has been translated to Russian or to add your own translation strings.

    You can edit manually or use Poedit ( to make the changes. I recommend Poedit as it allows you to compile your changes to an ‘.mo‘ file which is what you will need for the changed text to be visible. The ‘.mo‘ has the same name and lives in the same directory as the ‘.po‘ file.

    Hopefully this is enough to get you started. Let me know how it goes and of course if you need further clarification feel free to reply and I will be happy to help!

    Greetings Treesha,

    Guys. All these strings are translated! That’s the case. But your plugin still shows the original EN version.
    Please take a look at these screenshots:

    + I’ve translated a “Learn More” string, yet it still shows EN version:

    We would highly appreciate if you’d look into this particular case a bit closely.

    + Another issue, this word in Russian should have different endings yet it is a same word in .po:
    Can you make the main highlighted ending (in blue) or whole word being translated as a separate string?

    Good evening Danna,

    At my colleague Trisha’s request, I am chiming in to help establish why the translations are not working for you.

    When translation file strings are not kicking in, it is usually caused by one of the following things:

    1. Your translation files are not up to date (which actually was accidentally the case in our latest release)
    2. You are using some customized translation files that have been placed in the /wp-content/languages/ or /wp-content/languages/plugins/ folder. These files will always override any other you have
    3. Your theme is using its own text domain for some of the strings related to the calendar

    In the first 2 cases, the solution is to update your translation files using the pot file. You can do this by using the Poedit software and heading to Catalog > Update from pot file.

    If your theme is using its own text domain for template customizations, I would strongly suggest reverting back to the Events Calendar text domain in your child theme.

    For that reason, could you please send me a copy of your translated po/mo files in a .zip file (preferably in a Dropbox / Google Drive link)?

    + Another issue, this word in Russian should have different endings yet it is a same word in .po: –
    Can you make the main highlighted ending (in blue) or whole word being translated as a separate string?

    That is a good question. Could you provide the actual URL to that page and tell me what the english translation of that word is ?

    Hang in there,
    Geoff B.

    Hey there! This thread has been pretty quiet for the last three weeks, so we’re going to go ahead and close it to avoid confusion with other topics. If you’re still looking for help with this, please do open a new thread, reference this one and we’d be more than happy to continue the conversation over there.

    Thanks so much!
