    I would like to change the language files. I have edited the .pot files in my child theme to do this and the changes to not show on the front end of the site. I also tried using Poedit and that created .po and .mo files and placeing them in a language folder in the child theme. I have even tried to change the main language file in Woocommerce and the changes did not show. I am not sure what else to do this should be a simple modification.

    Any help or direction you can provide would be great.


    You must be logged in to view attached files.


    Could you please provide your problem page url to help check?

    Thank you


    The screenshot was from the Checkout page. The other places I want to change language are on the Recommended products section of each product.

    With this Product:


    The language on the “RECENT VIEWED PRODUCTS” near the bottom should be changed.

    Now add the above item to the cart, the wording below the cart item “You may be interested in…” we want to change this too.

    Like I said I have added new language files to the child theme. That did not work so then I tried to do it through the main theme and that did not work.

    Any thoughts on how to accomplish this woudl be great. I have researched this and followed a couple how-tos and they did not work either.



    Dear Patrick,

    You can try the JS below to change it (add to Customize > System > Custom JS at the first line):

    jQuery(".p-related h3.wc-heading").text(function () {
        return jQuery(this).text().replace("Related Products", "Text");
    jQuery(".cross-sells h4").text(function () {
        return jQuery(this).text().replace("You may be interested in…", "Text");

    Thank you


    Thank you that worked. I was able to add this JS to other changes I needed. Thank you so much.
