Translating the Product Filter

This guide will cover the basic translation and editing for specific string/text in the Product Filter for your WooCommerce Shop.

To see where all the translations for the plugin filters are and to start this tutorial please navigate to /wp-content/plugins/prdctfltr/lang/ folder.

If for example, you want to change how something was translated for the US translations you would need to do the following steps.

First run the Poedit app. If by any case you don’t have the app I will leave the link for the download at the text below this video.

Now that we opened the app let’s click to edit an existing translation and find the US POT file.

I will find the None string and change it to Nothing. Just click on the file and in the translation field write your text.

Head on up to file and hit save as, and save it on your desktop for now.

This file needs to be put in your WordPress installation in the /wp-content/languages/plugins/ folder. If the folder does not exists create one and put the POT file there so it can override the translations that already exist.

Now when we check for that specific piece of text for the US version we will see that it was changed.

  1. Hi,
    i have an issue with the translation: i triyed all the software and plugin suggested by you and from the other people in the comment, but i don’t know how to translate some part of the plugin. For example the buttons “show only product on sale”, “in stock only” and the text area where the placeholder is “Filter terms”.
    There is a solution?
    Thanks a lot in advance!

  3. Hi there,

    Can’t find the above mentioned video.

    But I’d really like to know;

    How do I translate the FRONTEND visible strings of my filter into other languages? Such as the headers, the tooltips e.g.
    Hope you can help!

    1. I found out that you can translate the headings as well as the items in the order by list displayed on the frontend by switching languages with WPML in the top bar.
      Odd that there is absolutely no documentation to be found that it works so simple, nor anything in the comments here. What kind of support is this?
