Needs Multilingual support for CampTix

Reported by: mayukojpn Owned by:

Component: WordCamp Site & Plugins Keywords:


Hi! We have a i18n issue with Camptix.
On ticket sales page, WordCamp Ogijima wants to write both Japanese and English. But top 3 default questions as well as “First Name”, “Last Name” and “E-mail” their strings are coming from CampTix plugin so we cannot edit these translation because it will be affected to other sites.

Is it possible to fix this or add multilingual function for ticket register page?

They are using Japanese as site language. So far I understand these question's locale will be switched based on visitor's language setting on central.wordcamp.org. You might have to switch your user language before check this page:

Oh no! Example ticket page should be https://2018.osaka.wordcamp.org/tickets then select any ticket and click next button.

I agree that multilingual support would be great, but I think it's something we need to solve for all of WordCamp.org, rather than just a single plugin.

The current solution is to create multiple sites (e.g., https://2018.montreal.wordcamp.org/ and https://2018.montreal.wordcamp.org/). That's not ideal, but the last time I looked at multilingual plugins, none of them really met our standards.

It's been awhile, though, so maybe a better solution has come up in the past few years. It might be worthwhile to start a conversation on make/Community to see what ideas people have.

Replying to iandunn:
Thank you for the opinion & sharing solution - we didn't know we can make multisite!
They decided to keep them as Japanese this time as they will have only a few non-Japanese speakers.

I'm happy to open discussion with Community Team very soon :) Thanks!

Sounds good. I'll go ahead and close this since there isn't anything actionable right now, but we can always reopen it if something comes out of the make/Community discussion.
