Dear Sir/Madam,

I have an add post form containing file upload element, my site's default language is Traditional Chinese, please advise how I can translate the text from the button.

Best regards,



You can add the following custom code snippet and translate this text:

add_filter( 'gettext', 'func_change_forms_upload_button_texts', 20, 3 );
function func_change_forms_upload_button_texts( $translated_text, $untranslated_text, $domain ) {
    if ( !is_admin() ) {
      if( $untranslated_text== 'Upload or select image' && $domain == 'wp-cred' ) {
             $translated_text = 'traslated text for Upload or select file goes here';
    return $translated_text;
