Gettext override translations


Lets you override default texts from your admin panel.
Originally built to override texts from Woocommerce, but also works for all neatly added texts by WordPress Core and plugins.

It will translate all _e(”) or __(”) string calls, so check the PHP sourcecode of the plugin or theme you need to translate.

It will NOT translate any dynamic strings like %s or %d, so “%s has been added to your cart.” is not translatable.

Some WooCommerce examples:
WooCommerce “Select option” (dropdown value) setting

WooCommerce “Select option” (dropdown value) translation result
Fullscreen Screenshot 4
WooCommerce “Order notes” setting
Fullscreen Screenshot 5
WooCommerce “Order notes” translation result
Fullscreen Screenshot 6

After trying several other alternatives which took me hours of testing and getting frustrated, this little plugin simply works! At least in woocommerce, others I have not tried. Thanks for this and keep up the good work.

In a WooCommerce shop for one of my customers I edited the .po file to change the default text into a more informal text. With every WooCommerce update the changes were gone and I needed to upload the files again. With this plugin I don't have to do that anymore. It's perfect if you want to translate / change (a few) strings in a plugin. Thank you!
