Search box text customizing / deleting

    We purchased this nice WordPress.com premium theme ( MH Magazine ). The local language settings in WordPress completed normally. In the available widget list there is an usual search widget under the Hungarian name “Keresés” – whitch is an accurate translation. The search widget box itself has a prewritten text in English: “Type and hit enter to search”.
    How we can customize, delete or translate this text ?

    Regards: Janos

    The blog I need help with is legikozlekedes.com.

    Hi Janos,

    thanks for purchasing and we’re happy that you like the theme. :-)

    You can translate the theme into your language here. Please also see: Getting Started with WordPress.com Translation.

    Hi there,

    Thx for qick reply. I already have translated the theme (… waiting for validation more than six months ….) It was not clear whether the text is a part of the theme or encoded within an independent widget….

    So I must wait for validation anyway… :(

    That’s life :D

    Yeah, if you’ve already added your translation, then as far as we know, it indeed needs to be validated. However, we’ve notified the WordPress.com staff about this thread, maybe there is something they can do to speed up the validation of your translation.

    The Hungarian translation of MH Magazine is currently at 33% complete:

    https://translate.wordpress.com/projects/wpcom/themes/mh-magazine/hu/default/

    Theme translations must be at least 85% translated to go live. If you’re willing to add more translations to reach the 85% threshold, just let us know here when you’re done and we’ll ask a Hungarian validator to take a look and approve them so they can go live. Thanks!

    Dear Kathrynwp,

    Yes, this theme translation is at 33% validated. But I already added further 113 rows of translation about 6 months before. On the top of the linked site there is a note (in red color) as follows:

    “These translations will only be activated on WordPress.com when 85% of the strings have been translated. Currently only 33% are translated.
    113 translations are waiting. As soon as they are approved, 94% will be translated.”

    So I’m waiting for a Hungarian validator patiently :)

    Pls find a linked screenshot of my browser – as I can see the translation site as you linked above: http://vicomplex.hu/Clip_21.jpg

    Brgds: Janos

    The Turkish translations for MH Magazine have been validated and will go live at 3am UTC. If you don’t see them live on your site after that time, please let me know.

    statiker89 – sorry about that, there was a delay in deploying the strings but they should be live now. You may need to refresh your site in the browser to see them.
