WooCommerce – Renaming the «Place Order» Button


The translation of the button «Place order» doesn’t seem to work with the current version of WooCommerce (2.4.10). It’s simply ignored.

(Possible) Solution

1. In the file «payment-method.php» look for the following code:

data-order_button_text="<?php echo esc_attr( $gateway->order_button_text ); ?>"

2. Replace the code within the quotes with the desired text. Example:

data-order_button_text="Bestellung abschicken"


This procedure is a rather dirty solution. Especially because you have to redo it after every plugin update.
