I am using the String translation to translate plugins on the website. It worked well for the Cookie Notice but when I went to do the same thing for a plugin called 'Exit Notifier' and it is only translating stuff that displays on the backend and not the actual content I need to change that display on the website.

Hi There,

if possible please provide me with the desired string to translate and where i can find it in the front end. Also let me know if that is a string that you added yourself or a default string from the plugin

String translation picks up any string wrapped in a

gettext call

meaning that most likely the strings picked up are the ones responsible for the backend and we will need to make sure that the strings for the front end are translatable.

I am trying to translate the pop up that occurs when a use clicks on a link that takes them to an external website. For example if you go to the hidden link page and click on the link hidden link you will see a pop-up that says, "You are now leaving the Leadiant Biosciences, Inc. Canada website. This external link is provided for your convenience. Leadiant Biosciences, Inc. is not responsible for content on external websites."

I need to have that message translates but I don't see anything on the backend under the 'Exit Notifier' plugin that allows this.

Thank you , i can see the message in the front end

this looks like an admin string , meaning that it is not a default plugin string therefore we will need to check the admin strings screen within WPML->String Translation->Scroll to bottom and click on "translate texts in admin screens" then within that string do the following

1. once the page loads right click and view the page source
2. use ctrl + f or cmd + f and search for a part of your string that you want to translate and see if you can find it in the source
3. examine the tags and then find the string using the tags ex. [your-plugin-name] in the admin screens again

If step 3 is difficult to follow please provide me with a screenshot of your findings in the source page and i will help you with which tag to search for

4. Find the string and add to string translation
5. Add your translation

let me know your results please
