How to Change the Language of the Search Bar

I am making a site which is not going to be in English. Is there a way that I can change the texts “Type Here” and “Search” in the Search Bar to my language? Please help!

Hi there,

Thanks for contacting us regarding your translation query.

You may take a look at this awesome plugin that allows you to translate single words or sentences.

Say What Plugin Say what? – WordPress plugin |

Once you have installed and activated the plugin you may navigate to Tools>Text Changes>Add New within your WordPress Dashboard and configure the fields as illustrated below.

Original string: text you want to translate here
Text domain: shapely
Text context:
Replacement string: translation here

Please let me know if there are any more questions that I can answer for you.


Thank you very much for your help! That is what I needed :slight_smile:

However even if I managed to change some texts with it, I still cannot change some of them. Doesn’t it work well on buttons or is there another way to do? Thank you…

Hi, I have the same problem. The plug-in worked only in one place (changed “search” in the footer) but it does not work on the button and text inside the search-box. Is there any other option to translate it?
