With Swapcard, it is possible to make your event be available in different languages. This article will explain how you can add other event content languages in addition to the the defined default language.
Note: Swapcard does not auto-translate the content of your event. In other words, the Event Organizer will be responsible for adding the translations themselves.
How to add other languages
If you want your event to be available in different languages, simply follow these steps: in the Studio, go on the Event settings tab > in the General tab, scroll to the section called Languages > in the "Event content languages" box, select the languages you want your event to be available in. You can pick as many as you would like.
How to manually add the content translations of the added languages
Translating event details
In the Studio, you will be able to translate the content of your event by clicking on the flag icon next to the content that is meant to be translated. When you click on the flag icon, a drop down menu will appear displaying all the languages you added. Simply click on one of flags to translate to that language.
General rule of thumb: for each content that will show up on the front-end for your Participants to see, look out for the flag icon that will let you translate to the other languages. Examples of content to be translated are Button/Tab names, Event description, Notification title and Notification message, etc.
Translating Custom Fields
If you created custom fields for People, Exhibitors and Sessions, the translation process is a bit different. In the Data tab, select People/Exhibitor/Session settings. Instead of having a flag icon to translate to other languages, you will have a drop down menu with all the languages you added. Simply select the language that you would like to translate the custom fields to.
