    Hi,

    I am confused of how to get your translations to show? I thought you support English (our site default, everything is in English) and Finnish? We have a website with 3 languages: English, Finnish and Swedish.

    I thought the banner and cookie page would be available in Finnish too? (Swedish not yet, I think?)

    Our WPML is configured like the default domain.com is EN and domain.com/fi is Finnish.

    I search and found the strings of your plugin in WPML – String Translation but dp I really have to do all the translations to Finnish manually, if you support that language?

    Is your plugin multilanguage = show the content of the supported language automatically with WPML? Some settings I have to change? Or how should it work?

    Thanks.

    Hi Aert,

    thanks for your quick answer. Yes, I have read that page many times, but it does not provide me the answers to my questions:

    – should the Finnish translations show up automatically? Do I have to translate the “Cookie Policy (EU)” page to Finnish manually?

    – what does this “Duplicate” setting in Pages mean and what does it do?

    – Do you support Swedish? I saw and scanned some Swedish documents too in your settings

    I really just want to know do I have to translate _manually_ the content from English to Finnish and Swedish, even if you say you support those languages?

    Thanks.

    Ok, I managed to get the Finnish Cookie Policy to show up, great.

    So I assume:

    – you don’t support Swedish, even I scanned Swedish pages in the settings?
    – I must translate the cookie banner manually?

    Oh I see. Many of the texts are translated to supported languages, but you MUST go to WPML, String translation, and CLICK the pen icon to the translation, the translation shows, you press ENTER and only after that the translation shows on the front-end.

    A bit confusing yes.

    Hi @haije,

    You can see which languages are supported here: https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp-plugins/complianz-gdpr/ As you can see, unfortunately Swedish is currently only at 50%.

    You are correct to say that (for supported languages) the legal documents and back-end will be translated automatically. Any customizable strings, such as the cookie banner, will need to be translated manually using a string translation feature.

    Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Regards,
    Leon

    Thanks. Is there any chance that we could reach the 50% of Swedish somehow? Or are they already in the plugin?

    I would be very happy to have the Cookie page in Swedish 🙂

    Hi Leon, no, sadly I am not a native Swedish speaker even though I am good at Swedish.

    I have a related problem.
    My site’s default language is Finnish and now I need English version of the Complianz texts. I was able (by sheer luck, I assume) to change the Cookie Policy page into English so the WPML language selection works correctly on that page, but cannot do the same for the cookie banner.

    a) when going to String translation, In domain: complianz, it only shows me there’s one string to translate … and that’s into Finnish
    b) even if I got the String translation to work, I don’t want to do the translation string by string myself – are the English texts somewhere where they could be copy-pasted from?

    Thank you.

    Also, the translation update on WP says all translations are up to date (and I did click on that several times).

    Hi @manupkp,

    The Cookie Banner texts will have to be translated via String Translation, as these concern customizable strings. Saving the Cookie Banner settings once under Complianz > Cookie Banner will cause these texts to get registered under the String Translation feature in your multi-language plugin.

    You can find the English defaults for these texts on this page, use the Filter option and enter your Finnish text to get the English version.

    Kind regards,
    Jarno

    Hello Jarno and thanks for the quick answer.
    I went through the settings again and saved them. Now I see in the complianz String translation is 24 terms but they present themselves as being in English though they are in Finnish. Something has gone wonky…? What should I do next?

    Hi @manupkp,

    Click the “Languages of domains” link shown in your screenshot, and switch the language of the complianz text domain to Finnish.

    Kind regards,
    Jarno
