Setting up an event language

Your event can be set up in only one language, the event's default language, or you can set up the event in three different languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese).

If you choose the multilingual mode, the event will be configured for the three languages. You will not be able to configure the event for only two languages.

Setting up one language

You can choose a language when entering your event details. This will be used by event page, registrations forms, emails and tickets.

  • Log in to your beamian account at a.beamian.com
  • Click on your current event.
  • Click Event details on the Top Navigation Menu and then click Event Information.
  • Scroll down to the Default Language field.
  • Select one of the available languages (EN, ES or PT) as the default language.

For an event that is configured in only one language

  • Make sure that Multiple languages mode is disabled.
    • Go to the dashboard page of your event.
    • In the upper right side click Event Configurationsettings-icon.
    • Scroll down to the Multiple languages mode and select disabled.
  • Make sure that every time you are customizing a registration form, creating a ticket, creating an email or any other content on the beamian platform, you are in the correct language version.

Regardless of the page you're on, make sure you are in the correct language version. You can change it by clicking on the different languages on the top right corner.

Setting up a Multi-Language Event

If you wish to create an event in multiple languages you need to enable Multiple languages mode and create translations for the three language versions of your registration forms, tickets, emails, sessions and so on. Error messages, validations and buttons already have default translations for EN, ES and PT languages.

 

First, you must choose the default language for your event:

  • Log in to your beamian account at a.beamian.com.
  • Click on your current event.
  • Click Event details on the Top Navigation Menu and then click Event Information.
  • Scroll down to the Default Language field.
  • Select one of the available languages (EN, ES or PT) as the default language.

 

Second, you must enable Multiple languages mode:

  • Go to the dashboard page of your event.
  • In the upper right side click Event Configurationsettings-icon.
  • Scroll down to the Multiple languages mode.
  • Choose Enabled option.

 

Finally, for each content you create on the beamian platform you will need to enter translations for each language version:

  • If you are creating a new form field under the Visitors' Forms page, after updating a form field in one language you need to switch the language selection in the upper right, and then you have to fill in the translation content and click update

This applies to form fields, but also to tickets, emails and any content you create on the platform. See the examples below.
