Hi there,

the first problem i have it that the german version of the foodtruck formular, the message confirmation is still in english, even though i translated it by string. How can that be? I attached the problem underneath.

The second problem is with woocommerce: I cant find where i can edit the outgoing email. Its about the order email that goes out, also attached. I need to change the german translation because its about a courtesy form.

Would be very pleased with fast help!

Hi, Florin.

This ticket has been inactive for quite a while, so I'm transforming this chat into a support ticket because I believe you're still encountering the problem. You'll still be troubleshooting the problem with me and this way we will not lose any progress made so far.

Thanks,
Itamar.

Hi.

The foodtruck formular message confirmation issue.
Can you please tell me where I can see this issue on your site?
I'm also not sure what is "foodtruck formular" can you please explain about it?

The WooCommerce email issue.
You should be able to find and translate the email string in the String Translation section.
Go to WPML - Theme & Plugins Localizations - Select WooCommerce plugin and scan - Go to WPML - String Translations - Search for your email strings - Translate & Save.

Regards,
Itamar.

Hi Itamar,

You can see it when you fill out the form on the bottom of the foodtruck-page.

I did exactely what you said on the string page but it didnt work properly, how is that? The Email on woocommerce i wanted to translate/change is the "Bill"-email.

Hi, Florin and thanks for the extra details.

The Form confirmation issue.

I can see the issue on your site here. hidden link
You are using the Contact Form 7 plugin to create this form.
Can you please confirm this?

Since German is the default language fo your site, it might not be an issue of WPML. You can check it by temporarily deactivating WPML and check if the message still shows in English or not. Can you please try it?

What you need to do is edit the original form that you have created and go to the Messages tab and replace the English messages with German messages. Please see the attached screenshot.
The following link to CF7 documentation might also be helpful to you.

Hi Itamar,
Yes I use contact form 7.

No it is a problem of WPML I'm quite sure because i already tried it with string translation but that didnt work even though i translated it via string.

Hi, Florine.

This ticket is about the CF7 success message issue.
You wrote to me: "The problem with the success message in english has been solved!"
But you didn't mark this ticket as resolved.
I've just reread the whole ticket.
Is there another CF7 issue that I'm missing?
If so, then please elaborate on the other issue. But if there is no other issue, please mark this ticket as resolved.

Thanks,
Itamar.
