Hello

I have created a custom dropdown field. In frontend it says "Select an option".

Where can I translate "Select an Option"?

I did check ticket 489 but it does not explain (it explains how to translate other text, such as Placeholder for Edit View).

Thanks.

Patrick

Hello,

The select an option in the dropdown are translated automatically by the browser.

For example, if your browser is set in spanish, then the text will be in spanish.

If you change your settings, you will see the translation change.

Best regards.

Hi

I use Webbrowser in German but see English text. As far as I could figure out "Select an option" is hard coded in JS files:

com_adsmanager/js/chosen
AbstractChosen.default_single_text="Select an Option"
AbstractChosen.default_single_text = "Select an Option";

Thanks.

Hello,

You can try to edit the field with that text and fill the setting ''Placeholder for Edit View' in the field options.

If you wish to translate that string in multiple languages, you can follow the solution in that ticket -> https://www.joomprod.com/support/support-tickets/Ticket/489-can-not-translate-select-an-option.html

Best regards.

Hello

You can try to edit the field with that text

There is no such field with that text.

"Select an option" is added automatically in frontend view.

"Select an Option" is not visible in Backend view(!). So where am I supposed to add a language string?

Thanks a lot.

Regards

Hello,

In the backend, Components -> AdsManager -> Fields, edit the field that display that text and fill the setting 'Placeholder for Edit View'.

Sorry, I didn't give you enough details.
