I have some sort of a solution for the time being. Make a gallery page for each language with 1 video. Use the [english] etc as a title of the video.
On the page you want the video’s to appear don’t use the gallery block but use 2 summarize walls, 1 for each video. The only thing a don’t like about this solution is that you have to display the title otherwise the [english] caption to only show 1 summarize wall won’t work. You can see it right here: http://www.yesweconnect.nl

I did not find any solution to have video or gallery of images for French or English in Squarespace Pacific template.
When I put the [english] or [french] in the caption, this does not work, neither for video thumbnail.

Will you find a solution soon for this?
Thanks

Hey. 
The video translation is not yet integrated in the Multilingualizer, but Dave is currently working on it and it will be added into one of the future updates. Please bear with us while we go about that.
Kind regards!

I tried this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOZdYsI46NE&feature=youtu.be
and added a title [Dutch] and [English] to the galleries, as that is how it works with photo galleries, but unfortunately it didn’t work.
But the lightbox idea is awesome I think.

Hey Info and Muriel.
This will be implemented soon, please bear with us – it -IS- being worked on and coded and it will be added – thus why the question went to resolved. I will make sure to alert each one of you personally when the update goes live in case you miss it. 🙂 Thanks, Kind regards.

Since the las blog (feb 10, 2017), that seems to work with the caption (ex: http://www.perifmedia.com/test-video-par-langue) but when I put ‘no dot display caption’ that is not working (ex: http://www.perifmedia.com/test-video-no-caption).

This was implemented a while back – you can add [english] or [french] to the caption of an image or description and it will only display that video for those languages.

info7 replied 2 years ago

Yes, it works with the caption (ex: http://www.perifmedia.com/test-video-par-langue) but the [french] appears (should be not visible) and when I change to ‘no dot display caption’ that is not working (ex: http://www.perifmedia.com/test-video-no-caption).
Is it possible to fix that?

muriel replied 2 years ago

I tried that. It then only worked when you displayed the title which you don’t want because that’s ugly.
Things took so long to get fixed, I quit using the multilingualizer. You could see alle languages for a second while loading, you could see titles. I was not able to translate blog categories. I was not able to use different download buttons.
