DW Focus theme:
1. Where do I find the words “Authors” and “Search” to translate? They are not in the .po file.
2. Month names appear in English, though I am using a Portuguese version of WD.

Not WD, but WP.

The word “ago” also fails to be translated through the .po file

To change locale.php is not effective.

1.  To translate the “Search” word , you can open the searchform.php file in the folder path “wp-content\themes\dw-focus”.
and to translate the “author” you can open the functions.php file  in the folder path “wp-content\themes\dw-focus”. Find the line 450.
2. To translate the Date, you can open the functions.php file in the folder path “wp-content\themes\dw-focus”. Find the line 287 to line 333.
Hope this helps !

Hi Glauner and Dominic, I think these strings should be available for translation in the .po file. Dominic, what do you think?
I’m running a multilanguage site, so I’m implementing this way:

1. In searchform.php I used get_locale() function to set a different String for the search box:
$search_label = ‘Search’;
$my_locale = get_locale();
if(substr($my_locale, 0, 2 ) === “pt”){
$search_label = ‘Pesquisar’;
}
and then using the $search_label in the placeholder=”<?php esc_attr_e($search_label . ‘ &hellip;’, ‘dw_focus’ ); ?>

2. I couldn’t resolve the issue with Dominic clue. I can’t find from where the “August” string is coming for the trending news widget and menus… maybe from wp core… the workaround I did: as I’m using polylang, just configured a different mask/format for the dates: Y.m.d (ex:2014.08.12)… hehe

Hope this helps. Best regards, Daniel

Same approach for the “View all” label that is hardcoded in \wp-content\themes\dw_focus_1.0.9\inc\mega-menu.php

“Site index” in footer.php
