I have a WooCommerce powered WordPress website. In this website a user can login to order products, basic WooCommerce functionality. The site is translated using qTranslate. I can translate everything, except the 'Reset password' page. The basic website is in English. When a customer visits the website in French, then requests a new password, he is redirected to the WordPress page but in English. Is there a possibility I can alter this (e.g. using a querystring, calling an hook, ...)?

Thanks in advance!

If you are talking about the default wp-login.php page, it is full of localization code. It should be translatable. I have not dealt with translation/internationalization enough to be much more help than that though. – s_ha_dum Dec 4 '12 at 15:48
I presume it is translatable. My problem is, when you're not logged in, how do you tell WordPress which language the login page (actually the reset password page) should be. – Birger Eelen Dec 4 '12 at 16:25

I guess you could use either HTML5 or IP based geolocation, set a current_language cookie and you are good to go. Or even better if you just simply ask the user about it. Wordpress translation is not equal to multi-language by any means.

Thanks, I'll take a look at it. – Birger Eelen Dec 6 '12 at 10:11
