I'm using WP 3.4.1 with German language files and started using the Event Organiser plugin. This plugins already comes with some German language files, but I'm not 100% happy with it due to following reasons:
- Some typos
- Mixture of informal (Du) and formal (Sie) usage
- Some unusual sentence structure (translated one by one from English - not a real mistake, but it sounds weird)
- The term 'Event' is not translated at all. Depending on the audience that might be okay, since 'Event' is also used in German language (the more 'modern' style), but for my designated audiance the translation of Event (Veranstaltung) would fit better.
So I created a customer version of the German .po and .mo files and uploaded it back to the
Unfortunately those will be overwritten every time the plugin gets updated.
Is there a way to place the custom language files to anywhere else so they don't get overwritten by an update but pulled before the ones in the plugin's language folder?
I tried to put the
eventorganiser-de_DE.po to the
wp-content/languages and the
wp-content/themes/<theme>/languages folder, but it looks like that the language files won't be pulled from there.
So any ideas how to 'resolve' this issue? I could also do the translation and provide the language files to be part of the main plugin, but I could imagine that then other people would complain that it is 'Veranstaltung' and not 'Event' anymore ;-)
Thanks a lot in advance!
P.S.: For Stephen, the author of the plugin (if you see this here ;-)), it's me, Mathias, who posted in the bugs forum of your page yesterday. But I didn't know where to ask this question on your site, so I ask it here and hope that anybody responds ;-)
