I am very satisfied with Fatmoon, it's a great theme! But unfortunately I have one issue: I want to translate the footer text. I am using Polylang and the string is shown and I can type in a translation (see Screenshot), but it's only displayed correctly in the customizer and not on the live website (is there maybe a quick fix for this?). I don't want to buy WPML only for this purpose.
I thought about the alternative to change the "footer_text" string in the footer.php to a Polylang string which I define by myself. In general, translating Wordpress and Polylang strings seem to work (they are shown on the live website). Unfortunately I am not very experienced with php. Is it possible that I change 'footer_text' in the part quoted below to for example 'polylang_footer' and define the string anywhere? Where do I have to define this new created string, which steps are necessary for this solution and would it work?
$ft = do_shortcode( $apollo13framework_a13->get_option( 'footer_text' ) );
Many thanks in advance!
