    Hi, In your theme, What would be the best way to change the role names ‘Applicant’ & ‘Employer’ to something else..?

    Thanks,

    You can simply translate the word on the themes. you can use loco translate to change this word or another word on the themes.

    Thank you

    Okay, great!

    Out of curiosity, any way to change the same at the backend/ database level? Thanks,

    no you can’t. they are language files, special text files. they have the file extention xxx.po and xxx.mo. but you need either the loco translate plugin or third party software (POEDIT, the one i use) to change the text. because the .po file gets compiled to the .mo file. and the .mo file is what wordpress uses to look up translations.

    well i can tell you its too much work if you want to change it on backend level. and personally i don’t think its worth you doing it if another way to do it is much simpler.

    Thank you
