Hello

I try to find translations for the mini calendar of search module.

I want to change day names:


In EB > translations there EB_MON is translated as "Mo". But it looks like the module does not pull the information from there.

I did search in Extensions > languages > Overrides but did not find "Mon", "Die" etc.

And in language folder > de-DE there is no file for EB search module.

Where can I find the translation?

Thanks.

Patrick

Hi Patrick

The date picker is actually generated by Joomla, so it must be translated in the language file

Maybe you can try to change it using Joomla language override docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Language_Overrides_in_Joomla ?

Tuan

Hi Tuan

I already did search in Overrides but I can't find it there. Strange...

But now I found it here:
\media\system\js\fields\calendar-locales\de.js

Honestly I don't know if this file could be override. So if you make change directly to the file, the change will be lost when you update to future releases of Joomla

Overriding here seems not follow standard procedure, but still, it's possible:

In folder media/system/js/fields/calendar-locales/ create a copy of the desired language file and rename it. For example:

Copy and paste
en.js
rename it to
en-gb.js or en-us.js
(depending on language pack you have set up in joomla)

Then do your changes in en-gb.js.

Joomla automatically will load en-gb.js.
