Multilingual capabilities?

    Hi all,

    Does anyone have any recommendations on how to integrate BuddyPress in a multilingual website? In my case, English/French.

    We use Polylang for our site, but it doesn’t seem to be picking up the BuddyPress text/strings for translation. So when I switch the language on the website, the profile links are translated like “Howdy, {name}”, “Edit Profile”, “Log out”, etc… but when I click on any of these links, I’m only brought to the English pages.

    I think the issue is that Polylang requires you to create an English and French version of the page, but the BuddyPress pages that get created by default when you activate the plugin aren’t editable. How are these page contents loaded? Are they iframes?

    In any case, has anyone used this plugin in a multilingual site? If so, how are you doing it? What language plugin are you using?

    Thank you!
