    Hi,

    I have a multi language website created with the WPML plugin. Now I need to translate the placeholder text “Search here…” into 8 languages. Where can I do this? It doesn’t seem be part of the *.pot file.

    Thanks. Regards,

    Holger

    Hi Holger,

    It is not part of the .pot file, as it is a dynamically changeable string, ant .pot files does not support that. You can use the WPML String translations module to translate the front-end.

    Hi Ernest,

    thank you for your very fast answer.

    Unfortunately I don’t want to use the WPML string translation plugin. Because it creates a huge amount of database entries. The site gets far too slow with it. I already had an other clients site where I had of 110.000 entries created by this plugin. And I couldn’t get rid of them. I had to set up this site again. ;-(

    I’m using “loco translate” plugin instead. But unfortunately it doesn’t find “Search here…” inside your plugin.

    Is there a way to make it translateable?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    That is the way or Polylang string translations. Unfortunately .mo .po method only works on strings that are statically hard-coded. Since these texts are changeable, the only way to do it is via a string translator module – in this case WPML and Polylang are supported. Unfortunately as far as I know Loco translate only works with static content.

    I wish there was a way to somehow make it work via the .pot translating system, but does not work with dynamic string by design.
