Installed language not picked up was created by jythra
Hello there,

I've just installed Membership Pro (again) with the Dutch language pack. But non of the strings are translated, eventhough I see a correct translation in the translations section of the extension.

Any idea how I get it to work? Site and admin are set to Dutch as default language in the languages settings of Joomla! and the translation files are in the right folder on the server.

With kind regards,
Rachel Walraven

Hi Rachel

Actually, there are other places (beside translating language files) you need to translate to make the extension works with your language. See membershipprodoc.joomservices.com/basic-...one-english-language for detailed instructions

Hi,
I have the same issue here.
I just installed Membership Pro.
Then I installed the language pack with the Dutch translation.

When I go back to the backend => Components => Membership Pro, then th backend texts are all in English.
Normally Joomla will recognize that the default language is Dutch and it wil check if there is ann nl-NL-xxx.ini file for frontend and backend. If these files are installed, then the backend will be changed to Dutch.

The files are there. I checked it by using FTPsoftware.
But the backend is still English.

I don't think I have to translate extra fields, cause what I wrote above is not happening.

So what can I do to have a Dutch Membership Pro backend?

Kind regards,
Wouter

Hello

If you login to backend using Dutch language, then Membership Pro should be display using Dutch language in backend

In this case, maybe the language file is broken somehow. Could you please submit a support ticket sending us super admin account of your site so that we can check it?

The language file for the backend was broken.
It is fixed now and the new language file is added to de Downloads here.
So if anybody else have problems with the Dutch language, please download the latest translation and install it over your existing files.

And for everybody who will trabslate languiage files in the f=uture, please don't use " in the middle of your translation.
In that case use the single '.
A " in a translation will break the file.

Thanks to the OSSolutionteam who fixed it this time.

Kind regards,

Thanks Wouter. Just want to add that if you translate the language file from Membership Pro -> Translation, you can still use double quote character. The system will handle it automatically on save (add \ character before that one) and it will work well

Tuan
