Change the Language of a Calendar Landing Page

Custom templates allow for a lot of useful modifications for tailoring your calendar to your needs. For example, you can translate the calendar landing page into a different language. To do that, you need to create a custom template and translate in the needed language all the relevant text strings.

Creating a Template

  1. Scroll down to the first sharing method, Calendar landing page. Create a custom event landing page template by clicking Custom Templates in the app and clicking + New Template. Add a name for the template.

Changing the Language

In the code section of the page, we need to replace some block tags with the corresponding code sections and translate all the relevant strings in the code.

The first string to translate is already in the Code section by default. Please translate this section of the template code:

The next changes will require you to find a block tag in the code and replace it with the corresponding code sections from the Block Tags section.

First block tag {{block:upcoming-01}}

Please follow these steps:

  1. Please find the block tag {{block:upcoming-01}} in the Block tags section of the page, and copy the code presented to the right of this block tag. In the example below, it's the code you can see on the screenshot on the right side:

    <!--
    Upcoming events count. Block will be hidden
    in case there are 0 upcoming events.
    -->
    <div class="row upcom-t1">
        <div class="ico">
          <i class="material-icons">schedule</i>
        </div>
        <div class="txt">
            <p><em>{{events-upcoming-count}} upcoming {{events-upcoming-label}}</em></p>
        </div>
    </div>
    
  2. Once the tag code is copied, scroll back to section with the template code and replace {{block:upcoming-01} with the code you've copied:

  3. Once the code is replaced, you need to translate the text underlined on the screenshot.
    The same steps need to be repeated for the other block tags.

The rest of the block tags

  1. Block tag {{block:register-button}}

    <!--
    	Outputs a "Follow calendar" button that will open up the
    	registration form if the user is required to enter any
    	information prior to subscribing to the calendar
    -->
    <div class="button-register-t1" id="subform-regi">
        <div class="flt-t1">
            <input type="button" value="Follow calendar" class="buttonregister" />
        </div>
        <div class="flt-t2">
            <div class="c0">Works with</div>

            <div class="c4"></div>
            <div class="c5"></div>
        </div>
        <div class="clr"></div>
    </div>
    
    <!--
    	If the user is not required to enter any information prior to
    	subscribing below "Add to Calendar" button code is output
    -->
    <div class="button-register-t1" id="subform-regi">
        <div class="flt-t1">
            <div title="Add to Calendar" class="addeventstc" data-id="{{button-calendar-id}}">
           		Add to Calendar
            </div>
        </div>
        <div class="flt-t2">
            <div class="c0">Works with</div>
            <div class="c1"></div>
            <div class="c2"></div>
            <div class="c3"></div>
            <div class="c4"></div>
            <div class="c5"></div>
        </div>
        <div class="clr"></div>
