Hello,

Since Google Translator is free provided by google, I'm afraid no. The only thing you could do is remove the field that allows users to change the language from their profiles but I'm not really sure whether it is legal or not.

That options only affects text on the forum, not the text in topics.

That feature just changes the language for the user who is viewing the forum, it does not change it for every user. Can you explain exactly what your code does and how the language being change breaks the code?

Also, bare in mind that even if there was a way to disable the language as you want to (there is not), they could simply use a translator such as google translate to change the language to their own anyway.

@Hampton987, you should probably reread the topic.

The field from the profile can be hidden through css or removed through javascript. It might be removable from the templates as well but I'm not sure if we have access to the needed templates to do that. Problem is, a user that knows Javascript can craft a request that would change the language no matter what you do. Most users dont know how to do that though. I can give you the code that removes that field if you want.

one issue with this if you hide or remove the area the users that have already changed it will be stuck like that .. if it was me i would add a disabled attribute and set the value to english so they are all forced to save it as english

this is how i would do it

Code:

$(function(){
$('select[name="language"]').val('en');
$('select[name="language"]').attr('disabled',true);
$('select[name="language"]').attr('style','background-color: #8e8e8e;color: #b7b7b7;font-style: italic;');
$('select[name="language"]').parent().append('<span>Disabled</span>');
});
