Can I use it to change any string?

You can only use the plugin to translate strings which are marked for translation.

How do I find the string to translate?

You can either have a guess, or checkout the plugin in question’s source code, translatable strings are generally wrapped in __(), _e(), _n(), or _x(), for example:

$foo = __('This is a translatable string', 'plugin-domain');

The article here shows some examples of what you’re looking for. Alternatively, the Pro version of the plugin provides a String Discovery mode which means you can search for strings on your site via autocomplete suggestions.

Is there any support for importing replacements?

”Say What?” has preliminary support for exporting, and importing replacements via http://wp-cli.org/. The following commands are currently
supported:

  • export – Export all current string replacements.
  • import – Import string replacements from a CSV file.
  • list – Export all current string replacements. Synonym for ‘export’.
  • update – update string replacements from a CSV file.

See the GitHub homepage for examples.

Can I set different replacements for different languages?

Not in the free plugin, however this is available in the Pro version of the plugin

Recensioner

Works perfect!

Wanted to change the text of one string on our site, and this plugin worked perfect!

Thanks

Did the trick

Takes some five minutes to learn to use, but does what it says. Good for creating a few exceptions to default translations.

Saving so much time

Wow this is saving me so much time.
As someone who is not a coder this is enabling me to take an application designed for a job board and re-purpose it. The free version was fine, but you needed to know where in the code the text was, with the pro version (worth the money) it searches for the phrase and you can then choose which occurrence to change.

Very handy 🙂

Saved me many times. Thanks. Seems there are always a few strings on every project that don’t want to cooperate, but I usually can handle them with this plugin.
