I ended my wordpress theme, which called the_mdttheme.

I tried to check it and get two errors with translation in comment_form().

Can't understand what did wrong, can someone help me? Here is two warnings:

WARNING: Found a translation function that is missing a text-domain. Function _x, with the arguments 'Comment', 'the_mdttheme'

WARNING: Found a translation function that is missing a text-domain. Function _x, with the arguments 'Comment *', 'the_mdttheme'

Here is my code, warnings are inside 'comment_field':

$args = array(
    'comment_field' => '<p class="comment-form-comment"><label class="hidden" for="comment">' . _x( 'Comment', 'the_mdttheme' ) . '</label><textarea id="comment" name="comment" cols="45" rows="8" aria-required="true" required="required" placeholder="' . _x( 'Comment *', 'the_mdttheme' ) . '"></textarea></p>',
    'submit_button' => '<div class="form-submit-wrapper"><input name="%1$s" type="submit" id="%2$s" class="%3$s" value="%4$s" /></div>',
    'label_submit'  => __( 'comment', 'the_mdttheme' ),
);
comment_form($args);

Thanks in advance!

The _x() function is meant to be used with the same string/text which has two or more different meanings/contexts, e.g. "read" can be a verb (I can read music.) or noun (It's a good read.).

And when you use _x(), the context is the second parameter and the text domain is the third parameter, but in your code, you incorrectly used _x(), where these are missing the context:

_x( 'Comment', 'the_mdttheme' )
_x( 'Comment *', 'the_mdttheme' )

But that would actually be seen as missing the text domain since it's supposed to be the third parameter.

So either provide the context (and also do so with your POT file) or perhaps you meant to use __()? :)
