Hey there, i have activated the multilingual tool plugin and "added language information to post duplicate". Now there is a text inside the textfield showing the language "[German]". May this is correct, but how can i undo this, set everything to standart?

Many thanks in advance!

Thank you for contacting us.

The "Multilingual Tool" plugin is only used to test the content of your site and check if the plugin/theme is compatible.

To undo this, you can, within the "Multilingual Tools", just remove "[%language_name%]" and re-run the string. I'll attach an image for you to see. That should fix the problem. Otherwise, I think you will need to edit these strings manually.

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

Thank you.

Hi there, Bruno is off for a few days, so I'm stepping in to help out. As Bruno mentioned, if re-running the tool does not resolve it, you will likely need to manually edit the strings. For example, in your screenshot it looks like a product title has the language code. You can edit the product and remove the language code tag.

Also, hopefully you made a backup before running the multilingual tools. You can always restore your back from before the multilingual tools changes.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance and I will be happy to help.
