Translating text in the plugin

The text in the plugin follows WordPress standards for making them translation-ready. We recommend using the Loco Translate plugin to translate any text in the plugin.

Take note that there are 2 domains a particular string of text could be part of:

  • wp-recipe-maker
  • wp-recipe-maker-premium

Loco Translate can be used to translated both of these.

Alternative for text in the recipe box

Text inside of the recipe box (like the headers for "Ingredients" and "Instructions") can also be changed in the Template Editor. Read the documentation on changing template labels.

Translating with Loco Translate

When using Loco Tranlate you'll find both "WP Recipe Maker" and "WP Recipe Maker Premium" on the Loco Translate > Plugins page. After clicking through you'll be able to add a new language for the plugin:

On this screen you'll also want to click through to "Edit Template" and then use the "Sync" button on the following screen.

This makes sure you're using the latest version of the translatable text in the plugin. If you can't find a specific part of the plugin to translate, syncing usually solves that.

Finally, make sure to store your translations in the "Custom" location. Otherwise a plugin update can overwrite the translations you made. If you did not choose "Custom" when starting out you can relocate your translation files:

Translating in Loco Translate doesn't work

Make sure you've used the "Sync" button as shown above.

If it still doesn't work, it's possible this particular text can be changed on the WP Recipe Maker > Settings page instead (for example the text related to User Ratings).

The labels for nutrients can also be set on the WP Recipe Maker > Manage > Your Custom Fields > Custom Nutrients page, if translating doesn't work.
