Hi, how do I translate placeholder, default_label and reset_label on a Toolset Form?


[wpv-control-postmeta field="wpcf-obj-referenz-number" style="height:40px;" placeholder="Ref.Nr." url_param="refnummer"]
[wpv-control-post-taxonomy taxonomy="objekt-angebot" type="select" default_label="Angebot" url_param="angebot"]
[wpv-filter-reset reset_label="Alle Immobilien anzeigen" class="my-button"]

In this case "Ref.Nr.", "Angebot" and "Alle Immobilien anzeigen" ?

Hi there,

Please make sure that you have the latest version of WPML and Toolset plugins:

- Create a backup of your website. You can use backup tools from WordPress:
- Go to "WordPress Dashboard > Plugins > Add new > Commercial (tab)".
- Update WPML and its addons there.

For more information:

After that, if you add the shortcode to a normal page it will be picked up by the translation editor.

I tested that on the website below:

hidden link

I added the shortcode using the Shortcode block in the block editor. (shortcode.png)

Then I translated the page and I see the items label in the translation editor. (editor.png)

I added ES before the label of the button to differentiate between the languages.

If your use case is something different please kindly get back to us with more details, Also, Would you please kindly follow the steps below to provide the debug information?

- Go to "WordPress Dashboard > WPML > Support > Debug Information (Link)".
- Copy the Debug Information from there.
- Find the "Additional Data" section below this chat. (Check the screenshot below)
- Click on the "Debug Info" item to expand it.
- Paste the debug information into the text area.
- Click the "Send Debug Info" button.

Hi, not sure if your workflow answer my question.

The code I have pasted, as example, is simply an extract of a Toolset Form content.
Did you create and inserted a Toolset Form or you simply pasted the code on a WP page?

Hi there,

I added the shortcodes to a page. But if it is part of the form you will need to follow the steps below to translate the form:

If the problem persists you will need to get back to us with the debug information that I mentioned in the previous answer so we can check your setup.

Thank you.
