[resolved] Language won't set (4 posts)

    I have the strangest thing going on. My WordPress installation is done through the hosting providers control panel called Direct Admin.

    I have chosen the dutch language.

    I installed the plugin. But it won't show the dutch language. It stays in english. I looked at the wp-config file to see if WP is really set to dutch and I see
    define('WPLANG', 'nl');
    define('WPLANG', 'nl_NL');

    when I change it to nl_NL my WP admin panel changes it's language from dutch to english and contact form 7 still isn't in dutch.

    When I change wpcf7-nl_NL.mo to wpcf7-nl.mo Contact form 7 is in dutch but when someone does not fill in a required field the error message is in english even though it has been translated in the po file (I have checked).

    I tried an alternative route by translating the english text in the functions.php of contact form 7 but that also doesn't work.

    I am lost and need help.

    Solved. It seems that I can translate it in the Admin section > Contact

    There are fields at the bottom which are hidden. Why I still need to translate it when the translation seems to have been done already in the po file I don't know, but I am already glad it is solved.
