I’m having some problems with the translation because there are elements that remain untranslated. for example, on this page:

“Upcoming Date(s) and Time(s)” and “Event Details”

I’m working with the latest version of your files available at:

Where can I translate this sentences?

Hi Goncalo,

That messaging is specific to the theme. Try a gettext filter:

function ee_mycustom_filter_gettext( $translated, $original, $domain ) {
    // This is an array of original strings
    // and what they should be replaced with
    $strings = array(
        'Upcoming Date(s) and Time(s)' => '',
        'Event Details' => '',
    // See if the current string is in the $strings array
    // If so, replace its translation
    if ( isset( $strings[$original] ) ) {
        // This accomplishes the same thing as __()
        // but without running it through the filter again
        $translations = get_translations_for_domain( $domain );
        $translated = $translations->translate( $strings[$original] );
    return $translated;
add_filter( 'gettext', 'ee_mycustom_filter_gettext', 10, 3 );

It can be added to your child themes functions.php file or a site specific plugin.
