I have posted a similar question regarding Multi-Language before, but did not receive constructive answers regarding this. I would like to set-up BP in 2 languages (english and german).
Would be interested in seeing something regarding this feature.
For me, it would be more than two languages. But how about something like a theme switcher? At least for blogs you could edit your template files in the preferred language and let ppl choose.
I think it would be good to set up separate blogs for separate languages — as in: if people don’t want the interface language to be different, then I expect they won’t want the discussions to be in a different language, either.
I tried WPML and it (or my hosting) is simply too slow. I just decided to set up separate blogs instead — and I hope I can install buddypress in 2 (or more) versions … I don’t think there’s an easy way of having 1 instance of buddypress work in English here, in German there, etc., right?
I haven’t been able to find much information about buddypress in German — I think I read the language files need to use the German buddypress (is that right? doesn’t really make sense to me)…
So, yea: I’m quite confused again… O_O
There is a multilingual plugin for BP available which does this:
I don’t know if it’s compatible with the BP 1.1 or the upcoming 1.2. I need this as well so we should look into it then
Also take a look at this ticket I made today: https://trac.buddypress.org/ticket/1593
If the “supergroup” feature would be implemented it would mean that you could make different “homes” for different countries/regions and still have a central homepage where all sitewide content is shown.
