Some items in the Filter Bar don’t translate into German
we have the filter bar installed on our website and have a dual language set up, German & English.
Now some things in the filter bar don’t get translated for some reason as you can see here:
What doesn’t get translated is “Event Category”, “Cost”, “Venues”, “Organizers”, “Day”, “Time”. Strangely though the Days itself and the Times are translated as you can see in the link.
All language files are properly installed and we are using string translation and the strings are up to date.
Any clue what this might be causing ?
Good evening Stefan and welcome back!
Thank you for reaching out to us.
I would love to help you with this topic.
Actually, these fields from the filterbar are not translatable yet (but they totally should be – I will open a ticket for that).
The good news is that it looks like you have 2 separate installs to tackle the multilingual aspect of things.
This means that you can translate it to your liking by going to Events -> Settings -> Filters and clicking on the down arrow of each of the filters you want to translate. This will let you customize the labels to your liking.
Let me know if that helps.
Have a great day!
thanks for the quick response.
Unfortunately it just looks like we have two install, but it isn’t. It’s just a temporary workaround for the other problem we have been writing about, the one with the venue/organizer 404s.
Thanks for opening a ticket for it. In the meantime I will just edit the labels and put German next to English.
Thank you for your answer. You will be informed as soon as this feature is out.
In the meantime, perhaps it would be worth exploring the idea from this thread: https://wpml.org/forums/topic/conditional-language-shortcode/
When done correctly, it should allow you to use shortcodes in that label field, which in turn will result in proper language display.
Just wanted to share with you that a major release of our plugins is out, which now includes this feature 🙂

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!
