    Been having a hard time using WPML. We are translating the site to another language and some parts of the site automatically translated after installing and configuring WPML.

    However we can’t figure out how to translate some basic stuff such as the “Show Details” button under each product.

    Where are all these translations done?


    We are using as well the String Translator plugin and even after translating any string the result is not shown on the live website.



    1) Make sure that you’re using: to translate WooCommerce.

    2) All text strings like “Show Details”, “Add to cart”, etc. are provided by the plugin and you need to translate WooCommerce with po/mo files if you want to translate these strings. The po/mo files can be found in the wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/i18n/languages/ folder. The latest versions of all translation files can be found here:

    You can edit the po file with tools like poedit: – translate all requiredstrings, then save the results and place the generated mo and po file into the wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/i18n/languages/ folder. When the user switches the language with WPML Woocommerce will load the right language file and translate the strings if necessary.



    I have the same problem. The strings appear in the string translator, but some of them are not translated when we make the translation.

    They are not widgets.

    I have used poedit but no success.

    On a category page, I am trying to translate “sort by default order” “default order”…

    Thank you,


    We ended up doing it manually. No success with any of the PO/MO files as several strings remained without translations.



    Strange, did you translate the theme po file too? It can be found in the wp-content/themes/replete/lang folder.

    Best regards,
