    Hi, I have some issues when creating a local site which I want to be in Swedish. It seems as if some elements in the themes cannot be customized and are still in English.

    An example is the pre-written text in the search field of the theme Best Business which says “Search…”. Or the “Submit” button in the contact form.

    Is there any way of getting themes in other languages than English? Or is there any way of customizing ALL objects and texts on the themes?

    Thank you in advance!

    /Elias

  • That question should be asked of the theme developer. You didn’t even tell what theme it is…

    What an *sshole comment. And yes, I did tell what theme it is.

    This is what Google came up with for Best Business So I have no idea what theme you are using. https://www.google.com/search?q=Best+Businesswordpress++theme

    AS volunteers here we are REQUIRED to direct theme related question to the theme developers unless we have personal experience with the theme. All themes are coded differently and without access to your theme files I have no idea how the text was added. In multi-language themes the text is pulled from a language file. I can’t tell from your description above.

    Sorry if my replay seemed like an a-hole comment but I assumed you read the forum guidelines before posting and knew that already.

    Good luck finding an answer to your theme issue.

    Hello,

    If you want to translate the theme “Best Business” to Swedish you can suggest string translations here: https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp-themes/best-business/sv/default

    Once you’ve translated it you can join the Swedish Slack wpsv.slack.com and tell us in the channel #translations and your translated strings will be reviewed. When 95% of the strings have been translated a language pack will be created for the theme automatically and WordPress will install it if you’re using WordPress in Swedish.
