I'm trying to localize the singular name of a custom post type.
... 'singular_name' => __('key', 'plugindomain') ...
I created a .po and compiled it as .mo. I also loaded the translation using
load_plugin_textdomain using the
// $directory plugin directory relative to plugins dir load_plugin_textdomain('plugindomain', false, $directory);
The string are localized correctly in the backend sidebar. However, the strings are not translated in the frontend with:
// $post_type returned from get_post_type_object echo $post_type->labels->singular_name;
Am I doing something wrong?
Apparently the problem is related to Polylang. Strings are loaded before the multilanguage plugin mentioned sets the current language during the execution. Is there a way to trigger the registration of post types after the language changes made by Polylang have had their effect?
