Can you please say me how can I fix that. I hadn’t found this string in WPML sting-translation or in po Files. It must to be “Veranstaltungen” in german.

    Good evening Alesia and welcome back!

    Thank you for reaching out to us.

    We are sorry to hear about that rogue translation showing up on your site.
    I would love to help you with this topic.

    I just ran a quick test and the good news is that there should be no such issue with the German translation. The good news is that this means that we only need to figure out what is causing this on your website.

    The most probable cause would be some custom function in the functions.php file of your WordPress theme. I would recommend checking there first.

    If you can’t find anything there, the glitch is likely to be caused by one of the following things:

    1. Your translation files are not up to date
    2. You are using some customized translation files that have been placed in the /wp-content/languages/ or /wp-content/languages/plugins/ folder. These might not be updated and will override any other file.
    3. The strings are translated, but are considered “fuzzy”

    In the first 2 cases, the solution is to update your translation files using the pot file. You can do this by using the Poedit software and heading to Catalog > Update from pot file.

    In the last case, you will need to make them “unfuzzy” using Poedit.

    Let me know how that goes.

    Best regards,
    Geoff B.
