Sorry to bother you again with this topic.

I'm using the german translation, but a few words are not translated. Unfortunately among them is "Contact Information" and "Contact" in every ad.

I have checked the translation file for those phrases, as instructed here:

I checked wether i  have the latest AWPCP file for translation, as instructed here: The translation file is the most recent one.

I noticed, that obviously the first setup is in english, and then you change the language setting to using the language of wordpress. I assume that the first sets certain html elements which aren't changed once the language is applied. Similar to email fields that are not changed, but can be changed manually.

I tried finding "Contact Information" in other files in the plugin, but without success. Can you point me to any way which could be either:

a. installing the plugin with the language option enabled (as opposed to enabling it after the initial install)


b. finding a way to change any templates or similar.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as i really like the plugin!

Hi zwarwiescheidsolingen (Jan),

Thank you for your post! Sorry that you ran into issues with this!

I want to make sure I understand the problem. Are you saying that the translation file contains the correct translation for Contact Information, but it is not showing on the site? 

One other place to check for words that haven't been translated is under Classifieds > Settings > Ad/Listings in the Single Ad Page Layout. There may be English words in there that haven't been translated yet. 

If you can send some screenshots, that might be helpful here. Also, a link to the site would be appreciated. If you don't want to post that information publicly, you can sent it to me at Please let me know.
