Support » Plugin: GiveWP - Donation Plugin and Fundraising Platform » Translation of “Donate with” / Paypal in wrong language

  • Resolved jwhberlin



    I am very happy with my first steps with givewp, as I solved the problem in context with smush. But one question is left: In der Step 3 (“Donate with…”) the english language is used, but in all other texts it is my website-language (german). Where can I translate this text (e.g. “Donate with Paypal”) and where can I change the landing page of Paypal in a german language?

    Thanks a lot, best regards,

    Hey @jwhberlin.

    ​Glad you reached out. I can help you with that.

    Translation for GiveWP is handled in two different ways: one is for the main plugin and the other for premium add-ons.

    The main GiveWP plugin available on the plugin directory is translated by the (largely volunteer) team at the official translation page for the WordPress project. Here’s the specific page for GiveWP:

    We as a company don’t have control over those translation files, though we can make suggestions and contributions there just like anyone else. I’d encourage you to get involved there to make GiveWP translations the best they can be.

    The premium add-ons, because they are not on the official WordPress directory, have to handle translations differently. A handful of our add-ons ship with translation files (PO and MO files) but as most of our team is not multilingual enough to manage translations, we rely on others to provide translations for GiveWP add-ons. The most established way to do that is with a program called Poedit:

    If you want to translate the files just for your site, you can also use a plugin called Loco Translate:

    We have documentation about how you can do that here

    For the PayPal page, when the donor goes to PayPal to donate, this is something handled directly by PayPal and we do not have control over it. It will be necessary that you message them.

    Thanks for using GiveWP! Have a great day.
