Multi-Language Support

David Bullock — 

Memberium has long provided support at the developer level for multi-language support.

With the 2.51 release, we now provide an easy to use GUI for adding and updating translations.

To turn on this feature, go to Memberium -> Settings -> Page Handling, and turn “Multi-Language Support”. When this option is turned on, a new “Language” tab is enabled in the Memberium Settings screen. You can use this tab to set your translations.

The standout feature of our multi-languages support is that it’s designed for a global economy where you can provide content and services across more than just one language. For site owners who choose to provide multiple translations, Memberium will select the best translation for each visitor.

How to Enable Multi-language Support:

To turn on this feature, go to Memberium -> Settings -> Page Handling, and enable “Multi-Language Support”.

How to Translate or Change the Text:

To translate a message or a text from the shortcode, here’s what you need to do.

Go to Memberium > Settings > Language.

Enter the name of the shortcode (without the brackets) in “Context”, leave Name and Language fields to the default, enter “Original text” (from which you want to translate) and then “New text”.

Here’s a detailed explanation on these fields:

Context – This is the section of Memberium that the translation is for; for example for the [memb_add_creditcard] shortcode, the context is “memb_add_creditcard”.

Name – This is generally “Memberium”, but for certain translations it may be set to “Generic”. Leave it at “Memberium” unless otherwise instructed.

Language – The language of the translation. You can ignore this for now as it’s for a future feature. Leave at default.

Original Text – The original text to replace.

New Text – The new text to use.

This method is useful not only for translation, but also to change messages from the shortcodes.

For example, when you use [memb_change_password], and upon successful change of password, Memberium will display this message – “Password Changed Successfully.” With this method, you can also change this message as per your wish.

Tip: You can also search for your existing translations. To do this, visit Language tab, and enter the context in search bar. For example, to view the text that you’ve translated for [memb_add_creditcard], you’ll just enter “memb_add_creditcard” and hit the Search button. This will give you a list of all the text that you’ve translated for this shortcode.
