Where can I edit "Search" in header navigation


I want to edit the word “Search” in the header navigation.
It’s the “word” which is displayed in the search form.

For better understanding I attached a screen.

I tried to edit the wording in the searchform.php wihout any effect.

Thanks in advance!


See here the code of the searchform.php (I tried to replace “Search” with “Suche”)


  • The template for displaying search forms in activello
  • @package activello

<form role=“search” method=“get” class=“form-search” action="<?php echo esc_url( home_url( ‘/’ ) ); ?>">
<div class=“input-group”>
<label class=“screen-reader-text” for=“s”><?php _e( ‘Search for:’, ‘activello’ ); ?></label>
<input type=“text” class=“form-control search-query” placeholder="<?php echo esc_attr_x( ‘Suche;’, ‘placeholder’, ‘activello’ ); ?>" value="<?php echo get_search_query(); ?>" name=“s” title="<?php echo esc_attr_x( ‘Search for:’, ‘label’, ‘activello’ ); ?>" />
<span class=“input-group-btn”>
<button type=“submit” class=“btn btn-default” name=“submit” id=“searchsubmit” value="<?php echo _e( ‘Suche’, ‘activello’ ); ?>"><?php echo esc_attr_x( ‘Suchen’, ‘submit button’, ‘activello’ ); ?></button>
