I have a View for Search in property, which has many fields and some of them are drop-downs (select lists).

When I switch the language to Arabic, everything is translated, but the drop-down is still in English (= default language).

I performed these steps:

  • I translated my select list in Manage fields and translate the options there
  • then I put them in Manage display to default translated.

But it's not working. Check the image for more details:

Any ideas about how to solve this problem?

  • If this question is about Views (as your own answer seems to indicate), then please include that somehow in your question also. Aug 3, 2016 at 17:38
  • @Pierre.Vriens so u ask my to change my question to be more clearly about select list in views ? Aug 4, 2016 at 10:41
  • Thank you for taking my advice from some days ago (to improve your question to make it match your answer). Much better now! Though I think you should also mark your own answer as "accepted" (assuming it worked for you). That way it will no longer show up in the "unanswered questions". Aug 15, 2016 at 9:38
  • yeah that's right my friend @Pierre.Vriens i will make my answer accepted and thanks a lot for your advice dude am fresh in this site . Aug 15, 2016 at 9:42

I found the answer for this finally ...

After doing all the steps like the image that I attached before, you should delete the old FILTER CRITERIA and add the New translated one to make the select list translate :

After doing so, the select list will be translated.
