Wild Apricot in other languages

Current behavior:
Wild Apricot administration is only available in English. Websites and emails can use different languages, but system pages and gadgets may contain some uneditable English text.

Desired behavior:
Support different language sets, which will update all labels to the selected language.

        We would definitely need pages in two, even three languages. The fact that this option is not possible may well keep us from signing up with you.

        Hi,

        Bumping this too. We would need to have the member profile page in two separate languages (at least). So when clicking on a member's name from the search page they would be served the profile page in the corresponding language. Duplicating/customizing the names of database fields only gets us half way. It would be great if there was a duplicate profile page where we could then choose the modified fields (perhaps even autofilled for things like email, phone, address, etc.)

        Thanks,

        M

        To execute manual work, it would be very nice if more headlines could be translatet from WA to excel.

        Multi-lingual support to allow users to change the website into different languages.

        Hi, I was just searching for solutions for how to enable multilanguage support on wildapricot and found this forum topic. We have the same issue as many below. We are an association in Switzerland and our main languages are German and French. Many of the technical elements remain in English. So I can highly encourage the development in that direction :)
        Kind regards!

        Our members are Russian-speaking women, who live in Spain. So most of them speak Russian or Spanish. We are looking forward to get this feature for WA ASAP. Thank you!

        I appreciate that most of a Wild Apricot site can be localized now with the templating system.

        However, for me the last remaining major sticking point are the forms. Given that the forms (particularly the sign-up for membership and event registration) are the two most important interactions for any club / organization, the inability to edit labels like ("Register", "Next", etc.) is a huge liability for us since our members will likely be confused or unsure how to proceed (we're located in Taiwan where Chinese is the major written language). Instead, we still have to depend on Google Forms and manual input for event registration.

        I want to be able to utilize the full potential of Wild Apricot - to do that, I need to be able to sign up new members and register for events directly on our site. Please try to find a way to make those important labels localizable.

        Thanks.

        French and English are the two most widely used languages in the world and very many associations operate in both languages (with Spanish not far behind). Can it really be that a Canadian company has not been able to create full dual language capability after so many years? We looked at your product as a possible tool but our need is French first (and English second). Also the ability to do finances in more than $ (try € Euros). Sorry this is not possible as it looks like an interesting product.

        We are a national association which services French members across Canada. We are quite pleased with the many features of our Wild Apricot website and the quick response when we have questions, thank you for the great work. However, we are receiving complaints regarding the English only instructions linked to the membership management system pages and some of the other features of our website such as “Login”, “Forgot password” etc not featured in French. Obviously, if we would not have been able to have a French content website, your services however really great and pricing so fare affordable, would not have been an option for our organisation. Our hope is to have our website and membership management system fully bilingual.

        Thank you in advance for the effort you will put into providing this future service, it will be more than appreciated.

        Allow the websites to be bilingual. Make it easy to change to a different theme and maintain a bilingual site without having to pay a developer to it for us.

        We are a bilingual association (mostly French speaking) located in Quebec, Canada. We enjoy many of the features of our new Wild Apricot website but receive daily complaints about the amount of english only instructions on the site and the English only automatic emails members receive. We appreciate that the website allows for an English and French version of the main content pertaining to our Association and we have translated all emails that we send out (receipts, reminders etc) to our members but find it frustrating that our members get some things only in English. This is the MAJOR complaint of the majority of our members.

        We would like to be able to translate all the information on the website including instructions to the members, and words in the advance search, which the general public has access to. We would also like to be able to translate all automatic emails sent to our members. A three quarter bilingual website is mostly just frustrating. :(

        Thanks

        This is long overdue. This post was generated 8 years ago! We all (Wild Apricot users) have to use the forum to urge WA to fast track this!!!
