Solved Divi Optin / Mailchimp German Presets

    Hey Divi pros - does anyone of you guys have an idea why I could have the following issue? I ran out of ideas.

    I included a Mailchimp Signup Form with the divi email Optin module - everything works great but the presets for the fields are in English only and not in German. I changed the names of the fields (where possible) in Mailchimp - nothing changed.

    AND - I would at one point need this to work in 3 different languages. I have no idea where / how to change this.

    See the screenshots for my configuration.

    Thanks for your help :)

    Hey Stephanie,

    The text in the fields are known as "placeholders". There isn't an option to change them in Divi and they aren't altered by the mailing list set up. But they are translatable, so you should be able to translate them using any of the WordPress translation plugins which exist. They will be listed under the "et_builder" text domain.

    Alternatively, you can translate them with PHP code as per this post:


    Hope that helps!

    Thanks Dan! Also thank you for the link. Can you point me in the right direction if I want to have different placeholders for different languages? I will have EN, DE and FR on the website. I wasn't successful finding an answer on Google so far...

    You're welcome, Stefanie.

    Assuming you're using a translation plugin to provide the multi-language support, then that plugin will probably provide a PHP function that returns the current language. If you're able to let me know which plugin you're using, I can try and track it down. With such a function, it should be possible to modify the code to return different translations for different languages.

    Thanks for your help! I use Polylang as a translation plugin.

    I haven't properly tested this, but replacing the "db_email_optin_translations" function in that post (keep the rest of the code) with something like this may work:

    function db_email_optin_translations($translated_text, $text, $domain) {
        if ('et_builder' === $domain) {
            // Define translations for each language
            $translations = array(
                'en' => array(
                    'Last Name' => 'Last Name',
                    'Email' => 'Email',
                    'Name' => 'Name',
                    'First Name' => 'First Name'
                'de' => array(
                    'Last Name' => 'Nachname',
                    'Email' => 'E-Mail',
                    'Name' => 'Name',
                    'First Name' => 'Vorname'
                'fr' => array(
                    'Last Name' => 'Nom de famille',
                    'Email' => 'Courriel',
                    'Name' => 'Nom',
                    'First Name' => 'Prénom'
            // Get the current language code via Polylang
            if (function_exists('pll_current_language')) {
                $lang = pll_current_language('slug');
                // Check if translations exist for the current language
                if (isset($translations[$lang][$text])) {
                    $translated_text = $translations[$lang][$text];
        return $translated_text;
    It's using polylang's pll_current_language function to get the language code and using that to look up the translation in the array. Give me a shout if it doesn't do what you need and I'll set up a proper test of it.
