    Hi support,

    quite new to WordPress and your translatepress plugin but quite successful I have an issue regarding toggle button translation. Pls go to the link provided above and open the lower right (GDPR cookie consent plugin) Cookie Settings. There the centred overlay window shows the cookie category toggle button in German but those cannot be selected for translation. The Necessary section is allowed for translation. Also, the ‘read more option’ cannot be selected for translation. WordPress site language is set to English UK, since I prefer this language for WordPress administration menus. The Site langues at translatepress is set to German. I managed to translate the Save & Accept button by setting identical translation. Because I would like to keep the Cookie related banner as well as settings window all in English.
    Wordpress v5.8.1, translatepress v2.1.1, GDPR cookie consent v2.0.5
    Teh question now, whether there is any hack to get the toggle button back to English language (as well as the read more link)?

    p.s. even the advanced option didn’t help.

    Thanks a lot in advance for support.

    Best

    Hello Tobias,

    Thank you for reaching out to us!

    If a string isn’t selectable with the pencil tool, you can search for it using the list of strings, https://translatepress.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/meta_information.png, available for translation from the Translation Editor, https://translatepress.com/docs/translation-editor/.

    Please let me know if this did not work in your case.

    Best regards,

    Hello Dragos,

    thanks for help.

    Well, that didn’t work out.
    Forgot to mention this in my 1st post. There isn’t and toggle button item in the drop down list selectable for translation. 🙁

    Any other idea?

    Thanks again in advance.

    Best regards.

    Hi plugin support,

    haven’t heard anything for couple of days.
    There seems to be no way by UI to get it working. How to resolve the issue?

    Hello there,

    The toggle button text is inserted via CSS and we do not have control over it, as TranslatePress does not detect this type of strings.

    TranslatePress uses the default language your website is written in and pulls the found translations from the po/mo file. Therefore, this string is inserted directly via the po/mo files and since TranslatePress is not able to detect it – there is no way to change it’s translation.

    The only workaround that I can see is directly modifying the plugin’s translation files.

    Let me know in case further clarification is needed!

    Hi Dragos,

    issue resolved by web toffee (gdpr cookie consent) now.
    The toggle button strings have been excluded being translated at your advanced menu.
    Please close this request.

    Best regards.
