I am a newcomer to Drupal. I am developing a website with multilingual support and I have translated most of the contents, blocks etc. but wasn't able to translate the Quicktab tab title.

I am using i18n, languageicons and languagedropdown modules for this purpose. How do I translate Quicktab tab title?

  • Each Quicktabs instance has a corresponding block that is managed on the blocks administration page. If you click on the configure link next to that block and choose Languages under Visibility settings, you have an option there to allow translations. I don't know how to actually do the translations, but maybe this can get you one step closer...

  • Have you tried with LOCALE module **translate interface**(admin/config/regional/translate/translate)?

  1. Ensure you have downloaded (if needed) and enabled the 'Locale', 'Internationalization', 'String translation' modules
  2. Go to Configurations > Translate Interface > Strings (Tab) (admin/config/regional/translate/i18n_string)
  3. Check the 'Quicktabs' checkbox under the 'Select text groups' heading, and click 'Refresh strings'
  4. Go to the page where it the quick tabs is and refresh it a few times (normally, you WOULDN'T need to do this, but for me, if I didn't and it's not cached, it doesn't work)
  5. Go back to Configuration > Translate Interface > Translate (Tab) (admin/config/regional/translate/translate) , and search, using the 'String contains' input box, for one of the tab titles. I.e. if your tab titles are 'Apples', 'Oranges' and 'Pears', search for 'Apples'.
  6. You should be able to see an entry. Click 'edit' and translate away!

In Drupal 7, you can achieve it by using LOCALE module


  • After installing and configuring Locale module go to admin/config/regional/translate/translate
  • Search for your TAB heading by clicking FILTER button and translate it to your corresponding language by editing it.

Note :

If the TAB heading is render using t() function, then only you can able to find the string and translate it.
