Translation problem west theme with Loco translate

Good morning,

I am currently developing a site with the theme West “free version”, and I installed the plugin “Loco translate”.

I translated some fifteen channels “ENG” to “FR”.
For example: “proudly powered by wordpress” or “Posted in, etc.”

The problem is that for some sentences or words that I have translated, it does not work.

For example: “posted in” does not want to translate into French.
While for the “proudly powered by wordpress” or “continue reading” the translation works perfectly.

My question is, do you think there is a problem between “West” and “Loco translate”?

My other question is, is “West Pro” 100% translated into French?

PS: Small precision: in fact I noticed that “loco translate” does not detect all the strings of the west theme.

For example: I can not translate the “One thought on” Hello world! Because “loco translate” does not find it. He does not find either “Posted in”

Thank you for your help, cordially.

Hello Cordially,

Currently West theme is not fully translated to French (or Canadian French) language:
https://translate.wordpress.org/locale/fr/default/wp-themes/west
https://translate.wordpress.org/locale/fr-ca/default/wp-themes/west

Please contact Loco Translate support regarding unseen strings.

Please feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.

Kind Regards, Roman.

Thank you very much for your prompt reply Roman.

I will try to resolve this problem differently, until West’s translation completes, or if Loco Translate is updated.

Cordially.

Excuse me to come back Roman, but after consulting this page: https://localise.biz/wordpress/plugin/faqs/specific-words
and after a walk in the file “west.pot” (…wp-content/Theme/west/languages)

I have noticed that there are not all the strings of the west theme. For example: “Posted on” or “One thought on” can not be found in the “west.pot” file.

That’s why (I think) that “Loco Translate” does not find the strings above (I’m just an intermediate developer, and again).

Currently, I could locate the above strings in the file “template-tags.php”, and the file “comments.php”.

Does this mean that I have to copy-paste “template-tags.php” and “comments.php” into my child theme and then make the translation changes directly into her files ?

Thank you again for your help, cordially.

Hello Cordially,

Thank you for pointing it out, I have already reported this issue. It should be fixed in future update, so you can modify parent theme files. But please remember about importance of regular full site backups.

Kind Regards, Roman.

Thanks again.

You are welcome Cordially!

And have a nice day :slight_smile:

Kind Regards, Roman.
