Tell us what you are trying to do?

I want to "localize" a JS script with an object of translated strings with wp_localize_script, just like in the example:
But instead of creating the object with the translated strings on every page load, I want to save / read the whole object as a transient with set_transient() and get_transient(). This is all no problem, but what I want to know is how can I call delete_transient() whenever a string translation is saved, so that I can make sure that the transient is always up to date. I am looking for a hook like 'save_post', only for string translations.

Thank you for contacting us. Please, my sincere apologies for the delay in answering.

You can use the hook "wpml_st_string_translation_before_save". This hook will be called before the string is updated. That way, you can remove/updated the desired transient:

add_filter( 'wpml_st_string_translation_before_save', function( $translation_data, $language, $string_id ) {

	// delete_transient()

	return $translation_data;
}, 10, 3 );

Please, let me know if I can help with any other questions you may have. I'll be happy to help.

Thank you.
