Hi All

I'm more than likely missing something here, but it seems that one is unable to translate their module using language packs distributed with the module itself - say, in a lang directory.

Is this possible? If not, how can I translate my module so that it's ready in the set language of the user?

Languages are defined in a per installation basis (name and label are free to choose), therefore you cannot set your module automatically to the users language. The only fixed language is the default one, which could also be translated to something other than english. The only option you have is providing the translation .json files, so the users can install them by themselves (or automating this step with asking for the languages in which certain translations should be put).

Also please look in the forums before asking, there where certainly other threads about handling module translations before.

I thought that might be the case (the JSON automation). Thanks for the clarification.

Indeed I did search first (always do), but didn't find anything relating to this.

      Hello
      Till now I hacked something with the twig template but it works no more with new PW versions so I look forward to create a module. I am working on a site in multiple languages : French, English, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian. The new posts are entered in any language with a field for language. Till now, I got twig files to get the translations with constants defined for each part of the pages.
      So I'd like to create a module to include theses files added according to the url /fr/en/...
      Have you some observations to do before I begin about the direction to take ?
      Thank you

      Hi 👋
      Anyone else having this problem?
      Requirements:
      - Repeater (matrix & normal) with mutlilanguage fields (text, textarea…) 
      - Backend language set to something other than default (ie. German) 
      Reproduce:
      - Add a new repeater Item (ajax, I found no way to possible to disable it with matrix)

      (Notice how the default language tab is active instead of the backend language…)
      - Write something into the (default language) field
      - Try to save, if field is required, this will not work. If not required, then when reloading, the content will be inside the backend language field, instead of the default language field who was (presumably) active
      Analysis:
      When  loading  a new repeater element with ajax, the default langue tab is active, but the backend language inputfield is visible (with no visual indication). When writing into the field, it will populate the backend language. When manually clicking on the default language tab (which is already active), the field will switch to the actual default language field (which is [now] empty) (that can now be populated…)
      Also Notice, the labels of the elements to be added are in default language as well instead of the translated label (images instead of Bilder)…
      ProcessWire 3.0.148, Profields 0.0.5…
      Is it my system configuration, or does anyone else have the same issue? This is a screen recording of the problem:

      Change Default Language to be None-English | Walk Trough
      When you start a new (single) language site and the default language shouldn't be English, you can change it this way:
      Go to the modules core section:

       
      Select the Language ones by the filter function:

       
      We have four language related modules here, but for a single language site in none english,
      we only need the base module, named "Languages Support". So go on and install it.

       
      After that, you can leave it, ... 

       
      ... and switch to the newly created Language section under SETUP:

       
      Select the default language

       
      Enter your new language name or its Shortcut and save the page.
      I will use DE for a single language site in german here as example:

       
      Now I go to the ProcessWire online modules directory, down to the subsection for language packs and select
      and download my desired (german) one: 

       

       

       

       
      After downloading a lang pack as ZIP, I go back into my SETUP > LANGUAGES > default language page in admin,
      select the downloaded lang pack ZIP and install it:

       

       

       
       
      After the ZIP is uploaded, the files are extracted and installed, most of my screen is already in
      the new default language. To get all fully switched, we save and leave that page, ...

       
      ... and completely logout from the admin.

       
      Now, of course, we directly login back, ...

      ... and see, that now also the cached parts of the admin have switched to the new default language. 🙂

       
      That was it for a single language site in none english.
       
      If you want to have a multi language site, just add more languages to the SETUP > LANGUAGES section.
      When using a multi language site, I think you also want to use multi language input fields, and maybe different page names for your language page pendents. If so, you need to go into MODULES > CORE > filter LANGUAGE and install what you need or want to use of it, (if not already done).
      Thanks for reading and happy coding, 🙂

      Hopefully this is the right place, if not, please move it to the proper sub. I installed the multi language module on my development (sandbox) set up not too long ago to test out a few things. From the start, I ran into some issues with dependencies not being met/installed, so I thought that I would simply just uninstall what had been. Unfortunately, that took me down a road of using some code in my home template to remove the modules (cant find it at the moment). After some struggling, I finally got it uninstalled, but it left behind 3 fields,
      language language_files language_files_site I thought that I could simply remove them from the languages template and then delete them, but I get the following error:

      I was wondering, is there a way to remove these using the api? I couldn't add any new users to the setup until I made "language" not required, but I was hoping to just remove all of the fields.
