What can we do to make it easier to design with Wild Apricot?

Editing the default english labels to change them into french

Hello everybody.

I am having difficulties to find a good soul ready to tell me how to edit the text labels so i can make an french version of my site. I am aware of the toggler, however WA keeps bouncing me back to consultants to change a few text strings.If the toggler exists it(obviously) means the text can be edited by the user.

I am not a website programmer(i used to do a lot C , assembler, structured text, Basic, etc,,) in my developper's years. I believe I should be able to change text in the templates if somebody shows me how to find the files & what is the easiet way to edit them.

If I can't change these labels I simply can't use the WA software and will need to restart my product evaluation

I thank you all for your advice and feed back

Michael/Switzerland

    Thank you for your answer and suggestion Jim. I will go take a look. If im not comfortable doing that myself do yu know anybody who has done it before ? I assume that your software is not only used in english speaking countries. For sure some people have made french versions of your standard gadget, which is basically all I need done. I like the package, i am reday to switch to a paid account.However if I can't overcome this snag, which i though would be a sinch really, then I will not be able to go with WA and all the work I did already will be wasted.

    Best regards

    hello there,

    Thank you for your answer.

    I do understand there no menu driven mechanism to edit the labels, however there certainly is way for the user to get in the code to change those strings ? If not of what use in the "toggler" if the labels remain in english on both language page sets ?

    Best regards

    WA has no functionality to change all labels, sorry. Most labels from functional pages (like event registration, membership application, etc.) are built-in and cannot be modified as of now.

    This is something we are going to change in the future, but not soon.
