Tell us what you are trying to do?

I am using the Woodmart theme and I cannot translate the following strings which are in the slide out cart: "No products in the cart" and "Return to shop". The two other strimngs in the cart translated no problem.

I noticed someone from the theme's forum had exactly the same problem and the theme developer said it was an issue WPML's side and he had to speak with you. Can you please assist me with the same problem?

I have already selected "Store a language cookie to support language filtering for AJAX" and deleted the cache etc in the WPML settings.

Thank you!

Just to add to this, the French translations for these 2 strings are appearing no problem. It is just the German translations.

All strings are translated backend (they come from WooCommerce) and I have searched for the strings and translated any I have seen.

Can you please advise.

Hello. I have found that another person had exactly the same issue over a year ago and you said you had updated WPML with a fix. It seems that you fix did not work or was not updated:

When cart is empty there is no German translation of my 2 strings (they only appear in English). However if I add a product then delete the product from teh cart the translations then appear in German.

Can you please advise a fix ASAP.

Thank you!

I have found the issue. It was to do with the setting sin the Main Menu. I had English set as the default main Menu, but I needed to set it as German, as that is the default language chosen in WPML.

All working fine now!
