    I’d like to change the language of some of the texts that come up automatically, like “Continue reading…” Is it possible to do that? How can I do it?

    The blog I need help with is: jocelyngirard.blog

    I saw that Nikau’s translation into French had been done, but I see that the English expressions continue to appear on the blog. There must be a bug with the localization. Is it possible to verify this?

    Hi @ jocelyn62,

    I’m so sorry for my late reply. Unfortunately you can’t add your own translation to a theme directly. But you can add to the translation of a theme and complete it by following the instructions here: https://translate.wordpress.com/getting-started-with-wordpress-com-translation/

    I hope this info is helpful. Maybe you can also send me the direct link of where the translation is missing on your website and I can try to add it.

    Best Regards,
    Ellen

    Hi Ellen,

    Thank you for your answer.

    As I told you, this is the home page that lists the latest posts with a short summary that ends with the link “Continue reading”. In French, it should read “Lire la suite”. (https://jocelyngirard.blog)

    The translation is already present in the link you gave me, it just doesn’t seem to work for this specific expression while it works for everything else.

    Francophone readers do not appreciate a site where English expressions persist, especially in Quebec (the only French-speaking province in America). That’s why I want to find a solution other than changing the theme (I like Nikau!).

    Thank you in advance!

    Jocelyn

    Hi Jocelyn,

    I’m happy that you like the Nikau theme.

    I can totally understand that you want the theme completely in French and not a mix of languages. I will look into the issue and get back to you as soon as I have found a solution.

    Thanks so much for your patience,
    Ellen
