I am using the Weglot plugin to translate our Woocommerce site. Weglot allows you to exclude areas that you don’t want translated, to save from your quota of words.

Weglot says:

Excluded Blocks By default, everything is translated on a page but you can exclude a section of a page by entering the CSS selector or HTML block you want to exclude.

We have successfully blocked everything containing the product name/product title EXCEPT one thing. There is a script running that contains the product name/product title and Weglot is translating the data in the script, even though it is not displayed. I have been working with Weglot support for about a week trying to figure out how to exclude it, but nothing has worked. 🙁

Based on what Weglot said about, about excluding page sections, can you figure out a way to make the script able to be excluded? What is that script for and, if it isn’t important, is there a way to remove it or the product name/product title that it is pulling?

Here is the script from the page. The translated words are: “Diamentowy wisiorek” (originally “Diamond Pendant“)

> <script
> type="application/ld+json">{"@context":"https:\/\/schema.org\/","@graph":[{"@context":"https:\/\/schema.org\/","@type":"BreadcrumbList","itemListElement":[{"@type":"ListItem","position":1,"item":{"name":"Strona
> g\u0142\u00f3wna","@id":"https:\/\/store.dolina.org"}},{"@type":"ListItem","position":2,"item":{"name":"Christmas

> Choinkowe)","@id":"https:\/\/store.dolina.org\/product-category\/christmas-ornaments-bombki-choinkowe\/"}},{"@type":"ListItem","position":3,"item":{"name":"Diamentowy
> wisiorek","@id":"https:\/\/store.dolina.org\/product\/diamond-pendant\/"}}]},{"@context":"https:\/\/schema.org\/","@type":"Product","@id":"https:\/\/store.dolina.org\/product\/diamond-pendant\/#product","name":"Diamentowy

> is a test","datePublished":"2020-08-03T14:50:53-06:00"}]}]}</script>

I even tried adding around where I thought the scripts were being pulled in footer.php.

   </div> <!-- Page end -->
   <div id="No-Translate-Scripts">
   <?php wp_footer(); ?>

So far, I have only noticed it on the product page. A programmer said the script is for WC_Structured_Data Class. Any thoughts about where the script is coming from or how to get it excluded? Weglot support had me add the following code snippet, but it didn't work:

add_filter( 'weglot_add_json_keys',  'custom_weglot_add_json_keys' );
function custom_weglot_add_json_keys(  $keys  ){ 
    $keys  =  array('desc');
    return $keys;

You can change the line number 103 in the file /weglot/vendor/weglot/weglot-php/src/Parser/Check/RegexCheckerProvider.php

original code :

/* Add JSON LD checker */
    $this->addChecker(new RegexChecker("#<script type=('|\")application\/ld\+json('|\")([^\>]+?)?>(.*?)<\/script>#s" , SourceType::SOURCE_JSON, 4 , array( "description" ,  "name" , "headline" , "articleSection"  )));

To replace by :

/* Add JSON LD checker */
    $this->addChecker(new RegexChecker("#<script type=('|\")application\/ld\+json('|\")([^\>]+?)?>(.*?)<\/script>#s" , SourceType::SOURCE_JSON, 4 , array( "description" , "headline" , "articleSection"  )));

You must use FTP to make this change because this file is in a vendor folder.


  • Merci! Just for clarification, I'll need to download the file via cPanel, edit it, and then send it back to the folder? (Sorry, I'm a trial and error person who has no coding / web training. Just naturally techie.)

  • Merci! Ok, I went into cPanel, made a backup copy of the file and then replaced the line you suggested. It worked until I clicked on the "Reviews" tab (Translated as "Recenzja"). When I did that and reloaded the translated page, it translated it again. :(

  • I tried with another browser and it translated it even without click on the reviews tab, so that might have just been a coincidence.
