Support » Theme: Maxwell » Error translating theme with Poedit

  • Hello,

    I am translating Maxwell theme with Poedit to Dutch language.
    The string “% comments” generates an error when saving the .po-file.
    In the WordPress Customizer in the Post options section texts are not translated.
    Also the texts “Previous Post” and “Next Post” are not translated.
    What can be a solution?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello KeesD,

    You can ignore the error, the translation should still work fine. Poedit simply does not like the % sign here.

    After the translation, you have to generate the .mo file and upload it to your server.

    If not all strings are translated, it can be that the global language files are still loaded. You can find the global translation of Maxwell on

    It is not complete, so some strings are not translated here. If you create your own translation files, you have to replace the WordPress Core ones.

    After the translated strings are approved, WordPress Core will automatically generate the .mo language files and provide them for all websites via a WordPress update.

    You can contact the Dutch Polyglots team to get your translated strings approved:
