Block views aren't translated in a multilanguage environment

Permalink
I set up a multilanguage site (en/de) as described by Franz here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZIqxGAS1FE...
Thx to Franz for that.
So far I had no problems to do so, everything is fine BUT...

The blocks in the frontend are still in English even if the url-slug contains .../de/...
The thing is that the default language in the dashboard under /dashboard/system/basics/multilingual is set to English (cause I'm a developer and it's better to have the site in English). If I change that to German, the block in the frontend is (naturally) changed to German, so the translation for that block (conversation) exists.

Now the question: How do I tell c5 to change the langugae according to the url slug without changing the dashboard setting? (cause that makes no sense to me)

I haven't worked with multilingual in 5.7 but there is an option in the Dashboard -> System & Settings that is called "Translate Site Interface" this might be where you put in the translations you want to see on your site. I don't know this for sure, but it's worth checking on.

Hi hutman

The "Translate Site Interface" is for translating Area Names etc. but not for translating block views. I had a chat in #concrete5 and it seems not possible without changing the dashboard language. So here's the hack I'm doing for the moment until I find another possibility:
if(strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], 'de') !== false) {
    Config::save('concrete.locale', 'de_DE');
} else {
    Config::save('concrete.locale', 'en_US');
}

This changes the dashboard language and so the block views are translated.
