Hi Support Team,
how can I edit / translate the “CONTINUE READING” … “button which is displayed on parent pages below the child page excerpt?
My website is in German, so I would like to change the text to German (“Weiterlesen …”).
This question refers to the Monument Valley Theme.
Many thanks for your help!

thanks for your reply. I tried it this way and created a de_DE.po with the translation. However, it didn’t work. I assume the string “Continue reading%s…” which can be found in the original monument-valley.pot file refers to a different position in the theme. “%s: Name of current post.” makes me think it might belong to a blog view.
Can you please take a second look?

Yes, that should be perfectly fine and WordPress should pick thatwithout any issue.
Have you generated a
de_DE.mofile with Poedit? WordPress only uses the
.mofiles for s.
Can you also tell me where you’ve put the file? Into WordPress language files folder or into your ?29 Oct 2019 at 22:18 #22072
yes, I generated a de_DE.mo and a de_DE.po file with PoEdit. As I wasn’t sure which languages folder is correct, I put them in these two locations:
I’m afraid the button still shows the English text. Any suggestion what I might try to change this? I really appreciate your help!

my apologies, this morning I checked again and the button text is translated. Probably this was a simple browser cache issue.
Thanks again for your help yesterday – and have a great day :-)

This probably means that the theme is picking up yourfile from
monument-valley/languages/. Please do not put your files in that folder. You will loose the file once the theme is updated in the future.
Instead put your file into
my-child-themeis the folder name of your , or into
/wp-content/languages/themes/monument-valley/folder (you will most likely need to create the
monument-valleyfolder on your server within
Or alternatively please use Loco Translate plugin to translate the theme texts directly in your WordPress dashboard.
