I wanted to translate the plugin WPFront Notification Bar. I have followed the 2 tickets indicated below. I have been able to translate the text of the notification bar; however, the translation of the button and the link are not displaying, they display in the main language (although I translated them in strings screen).

Hello there,

As we discussed in chat, please try to change the file /templates/notification-bar-template.php, in line 149, from:

                                    <a class="wpfront-button" onclick="javascript:wpfront_notification_bar_button_action_script();"><?php echo $button_text; ?></a>


                                    <a class="wpfront-button" onclick="javascript:wpfront_notification_bar_button_action_script();"><?php
    echo apply_filters( 'wpml_translate_single_string', $this->options->button_text(), 'admin_texts_wpfront-notification-bar-options', '[wpfront-notification-bar-options]button_text', apply_filters( 'wpml_current_language', NULL ) );

Can you translate the button now?

thanks for getting back.

I was able to make it work following the adjusted code by Andres and previous ticket.

I am providing steps by step guide for future reference:

1) In the WPFront Notification Bar plugin folder, go to the templates/notification-bar-template.php file and open it for editing.

2) Around line 109 replace next code:

<div class="wpfront-message">
    <?php echo $this->get_message_text(); ?>

with next

<div class="wpfront-message">
    echo apply_filters( 'wpml_translate_single_string', $this->options->message(), 'admin_texts_wpfront-notification-bar-options', '[wpfront-notification-bar-options]message', apply_filters( 'wpml_current_language', NULL ) );

3) Around line 144 replace next code:

                                     <a class="wpfront-button" href="<?php echo $this->options->button_action_url(); ?>"  target="<?php echo $this->options->button_action_new_tab() ? '_blank' : '_self'; ?>" <?php echo empty($rel) ? '' : "rel=\"$rel\""; ?>><?php echo $button_text; ?></a>

with next

 <a class="wpfront-button" href="<?php echo apply_filters( 'wpml_translate_single_string', $this->options->button_action_url(), 'admin_texts_wpfront-notification-bar-options', '[wpfront-notification-bar-options]button_action_url', apply_filters( 'wpml_current_language', NULL ) ); ?>"  target="<?php echo $this->options->button_action_new_tab() ? '_blank' : '_self'; ?>" <?php echo empty($rel) ? '' : "rel=\"$rel\""; ?>><?php echo apply_filters( 'wpml_translate_single_string', $this->options->button_text(), 'admin_texts_wpfront-notification-bar-options', '[wpfront-notification-bar-options]button_text', apply_filters( 'wpml_current_language', NULL ) ); ?></a>

5. Save and translate string from WPML > String translation.
