Tell us what you are trying to do? Search form fields on the home page have text in english "What you looking for etc..". Need to translate into russian. Don't know how to get to it, is it a category of taxonomy or where? Thanks

Is there any documentation that you are following?

Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site?
